Ahah received a Cleveland Clinic award as one of the 10 most important developments in women’s health in 2014. Highlights of Ahah activities include: professional publications and information for consumers available through an alliance with the EmpowHER website.

More than 30 presentations have been made at medical conferences and national meetings. An all-day symposium on the use of estrogen for primary prevention of cardiovascular disease in women was held at Yale in September, 2015 and is available at the Yale website for medical education. The 2016 Yale Symposium will be held Sept. 30.

Ahah advisors have been active contributors to the activities of the North American Menopause Society (NAMS). NAMS provides information about menopause for both professionals and the lay public at its website.

Ahah advisors have also played an active role in the development of the latest version of a video, “Hot Flash Havoc Update.” The video is scheduled for airing on PBS stations across the country starting in March, 2016.

Unfortunately, the beneficial effects of ET have not been appreciated because of negative attitudes towards menopausal hormones in general. Millions of women’s lives have been negatively affected unnecessarily and women have died because of not using ET. Ahah’s goal is to correct misunderstandings about ET and to help women after hysterectomy through its’ use.

Philip Sarrel, M.D. is the Founder and President of Ahah. He is an Emeritus Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, Reproductive Sciences and Psychiatry at Yale University. Twenty five other thought leaders in the field of women’s health make up the Ahah Advisory Board.

We value and respect our HERWriters' experiences, but everyone is different. Many of our writers are speaking from personal experience, and what's worked for them may not work for you. Their articles are not a substitute for medical advice, although we hope you can gain knowledge from their insight.
