LEWISTON – A Lewiston psychologist will be the featured speaker at the Wednesday, Nov. 9, meeting of Red Hot Mamas, a nationwide support group dedicated to menopause management education.

Dr. Deborah Taylor will discuss “My Sleep, My Memory, My Moods, My Self: Insomnia, Anxiety, Depression” at the group’s second meeting in the Lewiston-Auburn area.

Taylor is a member of the faculty of Central Maine Medical Center’s Family Medicine Residency Program. Prior to joining the residency program faculty, she served as director of Psychology Consultation Services at Ohio State University Hospitals in Columbus, Ohio.

She received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Southern Maine in Portland and earned a master’s degree and doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kan.

She served a predoctoral psychology internship at Ohio State University in Columbus, and a postdoctoral psychology fellowship at an industrial rehabilitation hospital in Ohio.

The Red Hot Mamas provides medical information and peer support to women, men and family members dealing with the physical and psychological impact of menopause, which usually affects women age 40 and beyond.

Its mission is to empower women to be educated healthcare consumers and actively manage their menopause.

All women, their partners and family members are welcome to the meeting, which will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Chairmen’s Room, lower level of the 12 High Street Medical Office Building next to CMMC.
