Knowledge, Attitudes, and Experiences of the Menopause Transition in Latinas

Recent Projects

Purpose: An estimated 6,000 women in the United States reach menopause each day. The menopause transition (MT) is associated with many changes that can affect disease risk in women. The overall goal of this project is to better understand the experience of the menopause transition among midlife Latinas, and to develop a menopause education curriculum for this underserved population. To achieve these aims, we conducted five focus groups with Spanish-speaking midlife Latinas (age 35-60 years).  Using findings from this study, we will co-design a comprehensive Spanish language menopause education program to enhance the health of Latinas during the menopause transition.

Funding: UNC Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (2021-2022)
