The Women's Health Initiative was the largest and most expensive study ever conducted to evaluate the effect of hormone replacement therapy on disease. This multi-center study enrolled participants between 1993 and 1998. The combination estrogen/progrestin arm was closed in July 2002 after 5.2 years of study. The interpretation of this data as well as medical advice was widely distributed in the lay media on July 7, 2002. Drs. Brinton and Arias will discuss both the effect of Women's Health Initiative on menopausal women as well as research on healthy aging.
