    In this activity, Drs. Santoro and Taylor take a close look at vasomotor symptoms (VMS) in menopause. Learn what causes VMS and the tell-tale signs to look for when diagnosing. Also discussed are evidence and indications for medical management options and the latest data on a new class of nonhormonal agents called selective neurokinin-3 receptor antagonists.

    This activity is endorsed by the National Menopause Foundation.
