Monitoring HRT: Understanding the Evidence

How to best monitor hormone replacement therapy is a big debate in the integrative medicine community, and one where common practice is not necessarily supported by research. In this webinar, Mark Newman and Dr. Jaclyn Smeaton will aim to help attendees understand the best approach to monitoring hormone replacement therapies. They will discuss the benefits of monitoring your patients' hormone therapies and explain what the research says about monitoring with serum, saliva, and urine. Attendees will come away with greater clarity around this important clinical decision.
