Dr. Angela DeRosa Is Helping Women Take Charge of Menopause

Hot flashes and night sweats and chills, oh my! 

If you didn’t know any better, you’d think you were the main character in the Wizard of Oz — the version where a forty or fifty-something (younger if in perimenopause) Dorothy goes off to see the wizard in order to find the magic solution for managing out-of-whack hormones.

For women going through perimenopause or menopause, hormonal imbalances may have you feeling like the Wicked Witch of the West one day and then Glenda the Good Witch the next (yes, those mood swings are the worst!). So when it comes to trying to find relief for the symptoms that comes with entering this stage in life, it’s crucial to find a doctor who has actually studied the effects and symptoms of menopause. We are proud to say that Belmar Pharma Solutions’ medical director Dr. Angela DeRosa, DO, MBA, CPE, or as she is affectionately known as in the hormonal health world, Dr. Hot Flash, is not only our advisor but is a leader in the women’s hormonal health sector where her credentials speak for themselves.

Dr. Hot Flash: The Woman Behind the Name

Dr. DeRosa isn’t your typical doctor.

She became an expert on hormonal health starting with her own life’s journey when perimenopausal symptoms began in her mid-twenties while attending medical school which then moved into experiencing early menopause at age 35. Dr. DeRosa not only totally gets navigating life while suffering from the effects of menopause, but is equally driven to research the unanswered questions that exist for patients and clinicians as women journey through the phases of menopause.  

Today, Dr. DeRosa is a well respected, internationally recognized authority on women’s hormonal health and has more than 20 years of experience in the medical field, both in clinical practice and in pharmaceuticals where her focus is not just on treating symptoms but rather understanding the systemic causes of those issues which more often than not is due to hormonal imbalance. 

But that’s not all. 

In 2018, Dr. DeRosa launched the Hormonal Health Institute: Executive Instruction for Medical Professionals or HHIwhich has allowed her to share her experience and research while training and providing community for healthcare providers and organizations who are positively focused on changing the face of women’s healthcare.

“I have dedicated my life’s work to understanding how hormones affect a woman’s body,” said Dr. DeRosa, “by offering research and solutions for managing the symptoms of hormonal imbalance. I am committed to educating patients, clinicians and organizations on how to manage menopause so each woman can experience all of life’s joys at every stage.” 

A truly amazing and much needed advocate for women, Dr. DeRosa guides us and inspires us daily so we can be the best support to all women who come to Belmar Pharma Solutions looking for answers.
