Taking Charge of Menopause with Dr. Sharon Malone

We’ve got a true legend in the world of Menopause and women’s health here – it’s Dr. Sharon Malone!

Dr. Sharon Malone is a legend in the world of menopause and we couldn’t be more thrilled to learn at her feet. If you’ve been following Hysterical for a while you will have heard from a legion of experts about everything from brain health, the truth about HRT, why women need testosterone to how to navigate your life with values as an operating system. We’ve covered a pantheon of topics related to women’s health at midlife and are thrilled that Dr. Malone is here as our final guest in Hysterical’s Menopause Cannon. Dr. Malone is an advocate for women and marginalized group’s and is here to share her new book Grown Woman Talk. With a broken medical system, becoming the expert of our own bodies and what we need in order to better advocate for our health and getting the care we deserve is a non-negotiable. If you or anyone you know has ever felt confused, ignored, neglected or patronized as you effort to feel better, this is the show for you.

Dr. Sharon Malone is a DC -based OB/GYN and Certified Menopause Practitioner on a mission to empower women to take charge of their health.

Dr. Sharon Malone is a nationally known expert in women’s health and the author of Grown Woman Talk. She is the Chief Medical Advisor at Alloy Women’s Health, a telehealth company that focuses on women over 40. Before joining Alloy, Dr. Malone was a partner at one of the oldest and most successful OB/GYN medical practices in Washington, D.C. She is board-certified by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and certified by the North American Menopause Society as a Certified National Menopause Practitioner. Throughout her professional career, she has been active in advocating for reproductive rights, reducing teen pregnancy, and eliminating health care disparities.

Dr. Malone is the youngest of eight children. During World War II, her parents, both of whom were raised in the rural south, moved to Mobile, Alabama, during the migration from farms to cities. She has seen health care from both sides– as a physician and a child of parents who negotiated health care for themselves and their families in the Jim Crow South. Despite living next door to two hospitals, preventative health care was never a part of her family’s life. As a result, Dr. Malone’s mother would lose her life to colon cancer, diagnosed too late for treatment. This searing life experience has informed how Dr. Malone has chosen to practice medicine and brought focus to the healthcare issues she has chosen to pursue.

In addition to her interest in women’s health, Dr. Malone is an avid reader, an amateur genealogist, and a lover of music. She is married to former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. and lives in Washington, D.C. They are the parents of Maya, Brooke, and Eric III.
