Seminar on Aug. 21 to Focus Testosterone Treatment for Aging

Ventura, California, 07/24//2012

Is testosterone treatment for the prevention of aging snake oil or is it the Fountain of Youth? Community Memorial Health System is holding a free seminar on Aug. 21 focusing on the controversial topic.

Rebecca Z. Sokol, M.D., specializing in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology will lead the seminar that will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the eighth-floor Nichols Auditorium at Community Memorial Hospital, located at 147 Brent St. in Ventura.

Dr. Sokol, who is an internationally recognized expert in the field of testosterone treatment, male reproduction and fertility, will discuss the common symptoms of low testosterone in men and women and how the diagnosis is made. She also will cover who would benefit from testosterone treatment and why, as well as the risks of testosterone therapy.

Dr. Sokol received her medical degree from the University of Southern California School of Medicine and completed her residency in Internal Medicine at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center of the UCLA School of Medicine. Dr. Sokol is a professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the USC Keck School of Medicine and is a member of the CMH medical staff.
