We are pleased to present the August issue!

It is interesting to see how the uterus can provide information on the status of other organ systems. For example the relationship between uterine myometrial arcuate calcifications and carotid artery intima-media thickness is described in a paper by Akilli et al.  In another study by Ai et al, an incidental finding by ultrasound  of endometrial thickness of 10 mm was associated with increased risk for endometrial cancer in asymptomatic women. Also included in this issue are two papers on hot flashes----one looking at whether reducing inflammation would reduce vasomotor symptoms and a brief report on whether a cooling blanket could reduce vasomotor symptoms and improve sleep.  We hope you will also read with interest the latest Practice Pearl from NAMS looking at lifestyle changes to reduce breast cancer risk.  Finally we include an interesting case report on the largest ovarian tumor ever reported in China in a postmenopausal woman.

We hope you enjoy reading all the papers included in this issue and look forward to seeing many of you at the upcoming NAMS Annual Meeting this October in Atlanta.
