Obama chooses family physician from Alabama as next surgeon general

This is going to affect all of us----President Obama has chosen Dr. Regina Benjamin, a family physician from Alabama, as his choice for Surgeon General. Click here to read the article on Yahoo News. Hmmmmm, a 51 year old woman---think she is peri/menopausal?? I know it's somewhat wishful thinking at this piont, but I am desperately hoping for some upper level government officials to go to bat for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy----I still firmly believe some day, hopefully in our lifetimes, that doctors will prescribe bioidentical hormone therapy for women as routinely as they now order antidepressants or just tell their patients to suck it up.
