Carla DiGirolamo spent most of her career focused on infertility, all the while being an athlete for her entire life outside of work. And it wasn't until recently she figured out a way to mix these 2 passions of hers.
She calls it Performance Endocrinology for Women, specializing in maximizing and optimizing performance in women in from reproductive age through menopause. We're learning now more and more in the fitness industry that women's performance is different from men's (of course), and it's based on and rooted in our unique hormonal physiology.
Dr. Carla DiGirolamo is a double Board-Certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist and Reproductive Endocrinologist who specializes in the care of reproductive-age and mid-life women. She also is the author of a free newsletter entitled Athletic Aging - https://www.athleticaging.blog/
Carla joins Pam to discuss the intersection of this work, the importance of fitness in women's healthcare, and fitness trends for 2023.
