About Ellen Dolgen

Ellen Dolgen

Ellen Dolgen is an outspoken women’s health and wellness advocate, menopause awareness expert, author, and speaker.

After struggling through the silence that surrounds menopause, Ellen resolved to help women reach out and end the confusion, embarrassment, and less-than-lovely symptoms that come with “the change.” Her passion to be a “sister” to all women fueled Ellen’s book, Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness. As a result of her women’s wellness journey, and in response to the overwhelming thirst of her ever-expanding audience for empowering information, Ellen’s weekly blog, Menopause Mondays™ was born.

Menopause Mondays™ allows Ellen an expansive platform from which she broadens her discussion of menopause, women’s health, and life as a menopausal (and fabulous!) woman. Her weekly Menopause News Flash provides a one-stop shop for the latest menopause and women’s health news and research, allowing women the access and know-how needed to take charge of their health and happiness. In addition to Ellen’s ever-growing social media presence, EllenDolgen.com has fast become “the place” on the web for informative and entertaining women’s menopause and wellness engagement. In 2012 EllenDolgen.com was named first on the list of the “Best Menopause Blogs” by Healthline. Ellen is also a regular contributor to over a dozen leading women’s health blogs. Her motto is: Reaching out is IN! Suffering in silence is OUT!

She produces and facilitates Menopause Mondays Parties™ for organizations across the country. Through her Menopause Mondays Google+ Hangouts, she chats with women and answers their questions; she also connects with women daily on Google+, Facebook, and Twitter. Next on her schedule are Menopause Mondays Live events, launching this summer in San Diego.

Ellen has founded women’s health and wellness programs that provide corporate education events for businesses, healthcare institutions, and other organizations. In addition, she works with pharmaceutical companies in helping them understand and address women’s health needs. As an example, Ellen recently co-chaired a social media roundtable for Novo Nordisk.

Ellen has appeared on the “TODAY Show,” the “Rachael Ray Show,” “The Doctors,” Oprah Radio, Playboy Radio, NPR’s “Tell Me More,” Doctor Radio, and dozens of regional and national media outlets. Ellen is also one of the first regular contributors to debut on The Huffington Post’s recently added site, Huff/Post50, which targets 116 million Americans over the age of 50.
