Studies suggests that there are racial and ethnic differences in how and when patients experience menopause. For example, Black patients are at greater risk for earlier menopause with more frequent and severe hot flashes. Projects that will be considered for Pfizer support will focus on increasing awareness and understanding among health care providers about racial and ethnic differences in patients’ menopause experiences. Closing these knowledge gaps are important to help ensure that patients receive proper diagnosis, appropriate treatment and optimal care.It is not our intent to support clinical research projects.
Projects evaluating the efficacy of therapeutic or diagnostic agents will not be considered.
