I have an amazing guest, Kerri Devine. Kerri is the founder of Hot in Charleston and a passionate advocate for supporting menopausal women through storytelling and narrative medicine. With a rich background in branding and community building, Kerri brings a unique perspective to the discussion around menopause.
During the episode, Kerri shares her insights on how healthcare providers can better understand the experiences of menopausal women, and why storytelling is such an important tool in bridging the gap between medical histories and the emotional and physical experiences women face during this stage of their lives. She also highlights the importance of sharing experiences to help normalize and raise awareness about the challenges women face during menopause, ultimately improving support for menopausal women.
