| Activity Objectives|
|Dr. Greenblatt examines reproductive changes associated with aging in HIV-infected women. In the course of this talk, she discusses how HIV-infected women experience menopause and how reproductive aging affects HIV, including the difficulty of defining menopause in the context of chronic disease, gendered differences in immune function, and the high prevalence of autoimmune disease among women. Clinical considerations in caring for aging HIV-infected women are addressed as well, such as ART management during menopause, low bone mineral density, cardiovascular disease, and cognitive dysfunction.
