Sleep Medicine Specialist and Cape Canaveral Hospital offer FREE women's health seminar

"What's Happening to Me? My Sleep, My Mood, My Self"

COCOA BEACH, FL - If you're a woman in your 40s or beyond, are changes in your sleep patterns such as insomnia or waking episodes causing you to feel emotionally vulnerable due to tiredness or fatigue? Are you experiencing symptoms such as irritability, anxiety, tension, and depression? These may all be due to sleep pattern changes that occur during menopause.

Cape Canaveral Hospital is continuing its free monthly lecture series on outsmarting menopause, called the "Red Hot Mamas Series," that began in 2009. The lectures are aimed at providing medical information and peer support to women and their family members on coping with the physical and psychological impact of menopause, which can affect women in their 40s and beyond.

Sleep Medicine Specialist James Shaffer, MD, will present: "What's Happening to Me? My Sleep, My Memory, My Moods, My Self" at this month's Red Hot Mamas lecture at Cape Canaveral Hospital. Dr. Shaffer's lecture is scheduled for Wednesday, April 28, from 6 to 7 pm following a special wine and cheese reception at 5:30 pm in the Medical Plaza Conference Center adjacent to the hospital. He will address how hormonal changes that occur during and after menopause can influence your sleep, memory, moods, and personality.

Red Hot Mamas is the largest menopause management educational program in North America dedicated to empowering women to become active participants in their health care and in managing menopause through preparation for a comfortable transition.

More information about these monthly lectures on different topics relating to menopause is available by calling the Health First Community Engagement Center at 321-434-4335. All women, their partners, and family members are urged to attend to learn more about this crucial topic. Space is limited, so please call 434-4335 to reserve your seat TODAY!
