In the 40th anniversary edition of this popular empowerment-oriented text, Dr. Prior's innovative research helped to inform and modernize the chapter on perimenopause and is given special attention on a page dedicated to her and her work.
Dr. Prior is recognized for her research that pushes the limits of traditional understanding of the perimenopause phase of life, including it being a time of estrogen deficiency, as well as the appropriateness and safety of estrogen therapy during this time.
