The response was so overwhelming that Dr. DeRosa decided to launch the Hormonal Health Institute to share her knowledge with physicians and other medical healthcare providers in order to help change the face of women’s healthcare.

“As someone who’s long been impressed with Belmar’s dedication to patients’ health and its commitment to quality without compromise, I’m very excited to serve as its Medical Director,” Dr. DeRosa said. “While I’ve had a very diverse career path, one constant has been my commitment to the understanding of hormones and the role they play not only in the quality of life, but at preventing chronic illness. As Belmar Medical Director, I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with Belmar’s providers.”
