Dr. Julia Schlam Edelman graduated from Yale then received her medical degree from New York’s Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. She did her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital. She was a clinical instructor at Harvard Medical School and a member of the medical staff at Mount Auburn Hospital prior to starting her own practice in southeastern Massachusetts more than 20 years ago.

The North American Menopause Society selected Dr. Edelman as “Menopause Practitioner of the Year” for 2010. She serves on committees for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the North American Menopause Society, and is President of the Bristol North District of the Massachusetts Medical Society.

In Menopause Matters, Dr. Edelman taps into her 25 years of experience caring for women and her extensive knowledge of current medical research. Vignettes, typical of patients’ actual experiences, bring the material to life, making it a fine reference as well as a pleasurable and informative read.
