Menopause to be topic

at Healthy Life Workshop

Dr. Nila Sayat, certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, will lead a discussion and slide presentation on menopause at the monthly Healthy Life Workshop scheduled for Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the cafeteria at Harrison Community Hospital.

Menopause, or the "change of life," is different for each woman. It is not a disease that needs to be treated, but women might need help if symptoms are bothersome. Because of changing hormonal levels, symptoms can last for years.

Some common complaints of menopause include, but are not limited to, hot flashes, trouble sleeping, mood changes and weight gain. These and other changes will be discussed. Additional related topics relevant to women of all ages include menstrual changes, perimenopause and osteoporosis.

Sayat graduated cum laude from medical school and has been affiliated with Southeastern Ohio Regional Medical Center in Cambridge for 39 years, serving for a time as its chief of medical staff. She also is on staff at Harrison Community Hospital and Barnesville Hospital. She has spoken at schools, women's organizations, senior centers and other community organizations.

The monthly Healthy Life Workshops are open to the public. The free educational sessions are held the first Thursday of each month and feature physicians, dieticians and other health care professionals covering a variety of topics, including diet and nutrition, exercise and flexibility, women's health issues and other health topics.

Light refreshments are served. Reservations are not necessary.
