Excellence award-winning article “Hormone replacement makes sense for some menopausal women”

For covering the hormone replacement for menopausal women, Aimee Cunningham received an award of Excellence in Science and Medical Journalism at the annual meeting of Endocrine Society.

The article written by Cunningham “Hormone replacement makes sense for some menopausal women”, highlighted the benefits of getting hormone replacement therapy after the issue of “Women’s Health Initiative study’ which spread fear among the patients and stopped many women from getting the therapy. The treatment of menopause symptoms was missed out by the women because of the fear of the therapy.

In the past, Cunningham covered material science, chemistry, biology and environmental science for Science News. She also had the experience of being a freelance writer for multiple outlets including Scientific American Mind and NPR etc. Also, she was endowed from the University of Michigan, a degree in English. Moreover, she also had a master’s degree from New York University in science journalism.
