“Given today’s longer life expectancy, Canadian women will spend more than one-third of their life after menopause. Our goal is to provide women with the information and the therapeutic options they need within a medical, educational, and integrated health environment.”
Dr. Nishi Dhawan
Dr. Dhawan graduated from Dalhousie Medical School in Halifax in 1991 and then served in the department of family medicine at the Women’s Health Centre, first as a clinical instructor and later as the department head. She was instrumental in establishing a menopause program in the Fraser Valley and an obstetrics clinic in Eastern Canada. Her undergraduate degree in psychology along with her interest in women’s health made her realize the need for a holistic approach to practicing women’s medicine. She is a certified menopause clinician through the North American Menopause Society (NAMS), has advanced bioidentical hormone training, and is a certified Ayurvedic medicine wellness counsellor from the Deepak Chopra Institute and the Kerala Ayurvedic Academy. She has also taken additional training in cognitive therapy for the treatment of mood disorders and has attended numerous medical workshops on mind body and preventative medicine.
