Havoc Reigns in DC

Provocative new documentary premieres in DC

Washington, DC (September 29, 2010) — On September 28, in front of a packed house at the Burke Theatre in the United States Navy Memorial, the provocative documentary Hot Flash Havoc premiered to an audience of prominent Washingtonians as well as out of town guests.

Hosted by the Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR), the film, which was both informative and entertaining, received thunderous applause at the curtain’s call. Following the screening, a panel moderated by SWHR president and CEO Phyllis Greenberger, MSW, and featuring distinguished physicians Alan Altman, MD, Pamela Peeke, MD, and Susan Wysocki, RNC, NP took questions from the audience on this important rite of passage.

“We are very happy with the turnout and reactions the documentary is receiving,” said Greenberger. “Producer Heidi Houston will be taking her film on a cross-country major market tour de force. The film is a must-see!”

The partnership between Hot Flash Havoc and SWHR will continue to raise awareness on menopause and available treatments.
