As Peter Schnatz, DO, Reading Health System, completes his term as President of NAMS, he reflected on the initial goals he'd had before assuming his position. His primary initiative was to bring the best care they could to menopausal women. Schnatz said they'd been working really hard on reopening the conversation of the use and utilization of hormonal therapy. He believes the conversation should move to considering what's the appropriate dose of hormonal therapy via the appropriate route for the appropriate duration, and not think it should be "the lowest dose for the shortest duration".
