Facebook Live: Eating for vitality and energy during menopause

Can what you eat affect your energy to cope with medical conditions, such as menopause? The answer is yes! Eating healthy can help improve symptoms and give you energy to cope. Join us to learn more at our next Facebook Live event, Eating for vitality and energy during menopause, on Thursday, March 28, at noon. Learn how your nutritional needs can change during this mid-life condition, as well as strategies to manage common symptoms such as hot flashes and sleep disturbances. We’ll talk about how nutrition can influence mental health and mood, bone health, the role of omega-3 fatty acids in heart health, and more with our Red Hot Mamas menopause education team featuring Christina Enzmann, MD, gynecologist at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital and Nancy Rozgony, Registered Dietitian and Diabetes Care and Education Specialist at MedStar Harbor Hospital’s Outpatient Center.
