Health Professionals Share Their Advice
For this closer look at women’s health issues, we asked local experts to remind us of best practices, latest developments and their advice to patients on four issues.
Dr. Baohuong Tran of Chester County Hospital urges healthy pregnant women to exercise—after checking with their doctors—and recommends some safe activities and identifies possible risky choices. From the Bryn Mawr Skin & Cancer Institute, Dr. Noushin Heidary has advice about acne—first-line treatments, alternative approaches and in-office procedures—and notes that this concern is not limited to teens.
Managing menopause is the topic by Dr. Beverly Vaughn of Lankenau Medical Center, covering what to expect and how to find relief from this natural stage in life. And finally, MDVIP’s Dr. Elana Kripke shares advice about the building blocks of healthy aging and how to enjoy productive aging with some simple lifestyle changes.
