Menopause (#1503) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

The average life span of a woman in the United States is 84 years. That means that many women will spend a full half of their lives as post-menopausal. It's easy to feel overwhelmed by symptoms and unsure about how to deal with them. In this episode, menopause experts provide practical advice to help women cope with hot flashes and other common, often debilitating symptoms, while addressing myths about available treatment such as Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).

Opioid overdose caused more than 42,000 deaths in the U.S. in 2016, and the crisis continues. Every day, more than 115 people in the United States die after overdosing on opioids.
