On May 10, Military Spouse Appreciation Day, women’s health advocate and menopause expert Ellen Dolgen will speak to military families about perimenopause, menopause and other women’s health issues at the Naval Base San Diego (NBSD) in California.

Military Spouse Appreciation Day was created to honor the spouses of those who serve, be it in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard.  They are the warriors who stay at home and are the glue who hold their families together as their spouses are deployed.

“Military spouses play a vital role in our country,” said Ellen, pictured left, who will also be giving away free copies of her book Shmirshky: think inside the box. “They deserve our gratitude and also our commitment to help them live long, healthy lives so they can continue to be the backbone of their families.”

Ellen, along with other medical professionals and wellness experts, will address over 100 military spouses on a variety of topics that affect women’s health and wellness. In addition to these attendees, and with the assistance of They Serve 2, a non-profit dedicated to supporting military service families, Ellen is able to donate thousands of her books to spouses of servicemen, servicewomen, and civilians supporting the military.

After struggling with her own severe menopause symptoms and doing years of research, Ellen resolved to share what she learned from experts and her own trial and error. Her goal was to replace the confusion, embarrassment, and symptoms millions of women go through–before, during, and after menopause–with the medically sound solutions she discovered. Her passion to become a “sister” and confidant to all women fueled Ellen’s first book, Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness. As a result of the overwhelming response from her burgeoning audiences and followers’ requests for empowering information they could trust, Ellen’s weekly blog, Menopause MondaysTM, was born.
