Is there a doctor in the house? When it comes to elevating the quality of research and clinical practice of menopause, Dr. Lila Nachtigall is among the world’s best. Throughout her career, she has been hyper-focused on ensuring both her colleagues in medicine and patients—as well as the general population—have more awareness and better education regarding menopause medicine. Dr. Lila Nachtigall is known as one of the world’s leading authorities on menopause and female hormones.
