Mission, Vision and Bylaws

The North American Menopause Society (NAMS)


NAMS Mission is to promote the health and quality of life of all women during midlife and beyond through an understanding of menopause and healthy aging.


NAMS Vision is to serve as the definitive, independent, evidence-based resource on midlife women’s health, menopause, and healthy aging for healthcare professionals, researchers, the media, and the general public. The Society strives to:

  • Stimulate, recommend, recognize, and support research on physiologic, medical, genetic, psychosocial, behavioral, ethnic, and cultural aspects of menopause and healthy aging and translate this research into clinical practice.
  • Promote the exchange of multidisciplinary scientific knowledge of menopause and healthy aging through efforts that include the Annual Scientific Meeting and the journal Menopause, and collaboration with other scientific societies.
  • Delineate the scope of, promote excellence in, and recognize expertise in menopause-related clinical practice and health-promotion strategies for women as they age.
  • Develop and distribute continuing professional education for healthcare providers, researchers, and educators that increases understanding of menopause and healthy aging.
  • Collaborate with academic groups to establish standards and provide appropriate menopause and age-related curricula in women’s health care.
  • Empower women with culturally sensitive, scientifically accurate information so they can actively participate in menopause and age-related healthcare decisions.
