About NAMS

Founded in 1989, The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) is North America's leading nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the health and quality of life of all women during midlife and beyond through an understanding of menopause and healthy aging. Its multidisciplinary membership of 2,900 leaders in the field – including clinical and basic science experts from medicine, nursing, sociology, psychology, nutrition, anthropology, epidemiology, pharmacy, and education – allows NAMS to be uniquely qualified to provide information that is both accurate and unbiased, not for or against any point of view.

We are pleased to be recognized as the preeminent resource on all aspects of menopause to both healthcare providers and the public. NAMS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

This website is totally funded by The North American Menopause Society. No commercial advertisements are accepted.
