February 24, 2014
Sarah Low, MD, a family medicine physician at UT Health Northeast, recently met the criteria and passed the examination to become a certified menopause practitioner.
The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) administers the certification. Applicants must demonstrate their competency in the field of menopause to be certified.
NAMS is dedicated to promoting the health and quality of life for women through an understanding of menopause and healthy aging.
In fall 2012, Dr. Low – who joined UT Health last year – was one of 30 medical residents chosen for the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) / Pfizer Medical Resident and Fellow Reporter Award.
