Jefferson Healthcare – Free Menopause Discussion Group

Last year I had the pleasure of photographing Jane Albee. Jane is a staff member at Jefferson Healthcare Women’s Health Clinic and is hosting a five week discussion for pre and menopausal women.  

This information is from the Jefferson Healthcare website: Starting February 23, and continuing March 2, March 9, March 23 and March 30 from noon to 1:00 pm in the Women’s Health Clinic on the main campus.  The best treatment for menopause is information.  Topics to be explored in a supportive atmosphere with other women include: menopause overview, managing menopause with hormones, sexual health, pelvic health and other medical impacts of menopause.  All registered participants receive a complimentary copy of the Menopause Guidebook.

The group is facilitated by Jefferson Healthcare’s Jane Albee, ARNP and Certified Menopause Practitioner through the North American Menopause Society. Jane has been a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner for thirty-five years.  Prior to moving to the Olympic Peninsula in 1991, Jane worked in college Health.  Jane was the clinic manager for the Hall Health Women's clinic at the University of Washington in the 1980s.  She also started the college health service for the University of Alaska, Juneau.  Before coming to work with Jefferson Healthcare, Jane worked with Dr. Robert Palmer in private gynecology practice for twenty years.  Jane’s interests include mid-life health, menopause, hormone therapy, diagnosing and treating difficult vaginal conditions, sexual concerns and contraceptive issues. She offers menopause support and educational talks to groups as a service to the community.
