Is There a Doctor in The House?

The doctors are in the house! 

You have asked for it and here it is! Black Girl's Guide to Surviving Menopause is so excited to bring you all this fantastic interview with OB/GYNs Dr. Cindy Duke and Dr. Arianna Sholes-Douglas. We talked about what menopause is and what it is not, sex and menopause, menopause health/support and health disparities experience by Black women, femmes and non binary people. We hope this episode provides some clarity around how to navigate menopause from a healthcare provider perspective. 

Meet the doctors! 

Cindy M. Duke is America’s only dual accredited Fertility Expert & Virologist.

A M.D. Ph.D trained Physician Scientist, Ob/Gyn, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) specialist, Dr. Cindy is a very effective communicator with a dynamic personality and outstanding people skills. She consistently works well with teams across specialties/disciplines.

Dr. Duke has been (and continues) to be the beneficiary of many outstanding mentors/role models throughout her career. As a result, outside of her clinical work and research, Dr. Duke understands the value of giving back to her community and empowers women and girls from disadvantaged backgrounds to reach for the sky by encouraging their continued interest in careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and encouraging Women and Girls!

Arianna Sholes-Douglas, MD, FACOG has dedicated much of her career to helping women through the stages of life that are largely neglected by most of the medical community: menopause and perimenopause. She is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Maternal-Fetal Medicine and has been practicing medicine for three decades. She is the author of the best-selling book, The Menopause Myth: What your mother, doctor and friends haven’t shared about life after 35. Dr. Arianna specializes in integrative women’s health. She incorporates evidenced-based, alternative medical therapies to promote healing. Her practice of medicine recognizes that the mind, body, and spirit all greatly affect overall health. She takes a holistic approach to patient care, combining her extensive knowledge of women’s health with the field of integrative and functional medicine.
