Augusta Gynecologist Receives International Research Award
AUGUSTA – Ga. Murray A. Freedman, M.D., a gynecologist with Augusta GYN PC., is the recipient of the 2008 North American Menopause Society/Novo Nordisk Health Research Award.
This award is designed to recognize an individual whose research has made a significant contribution toward increasing the understanding of gynecological health in perimenopausal or postmenopausal women, according to Mary A. Nance, Education Services Manager for the organization.
Founded in 1989, the North American Menopausal Society (NAMS) is North America’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the health and quality of life of women through an understanding of menopause. Its multidisciplinary membership of 2,000 leaders in the field – including clinical and science experts from medicine, nursing, sociology, psychology, nutrition, anthropology, epidemiology, pharmacy and education – allows NAMS to be uniquely qualified to provide information that is both accurate and unbiased, not for or against any point of view.
Dr. Freedman, who practices at University Hospital, was honored at the 2008 NAMS Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla., where he received his award.
