Ep. 188: Your Women’s Health Questions, Answered

Dr. Jennifer Zelovitzky is the clinical director of the Menopause and Perimenopause Program at Medcan, and she also leads the new perimenopause and menopause program. Since the program launched this year, she’s been working with women at Medcan to educate them about their health and help treat their unique symptoms and situations.

Here, she joins Marisa Ciarlitto to chat about the questions that she gets asked most, how she helped some of her clients get through common problems, and how you can get the most benefit out of your next appointment with your doctor.
