Angela DeRosa, DO, MBA, CPE

Dr. Angela DeRosa, DO, MBA, CPE, is a dynamic professional on a mission to change the face of Women’s Health and Wellness. As a respected, internationally recognized authority on women’s hormonal health, Dr. DeRosa understands the range of health issues women face leading up to and during menopause. She experienced early menopause at age 35, with symptoms beginning in her mid-twenties, while she was attending medical school. In her quest to find out what was happening to her, it became clear that understanding, research and treatment for this critical phase of women’s health was woefully inadequate.

Dr. DeRosa found her passion and embarked on a lifelong career specializing in women’s health with an emphasis on the importance of balanced hormones as a foundation for better health. While still in medical school, she developed the nineteenth women’s health residency program in the nation.

Dr. DeRosa worked for Proctor & Gamble as a medical expert to help launch osteoporosis treatments and testosterone replacement for women. During her years with the pharmaceutical division, she saw firsthand how women’s ability to get proper medical care and treatment is thwarted due to politics, gender bias and poorly trained physicians. Her mission is to teach women about what’s happening to them physically, how they can obtain proper treatment, and to change the paradigm of medicine so women everywhere can live healthier and happier lives.

Dr. DeRosa is a member of the International Menopause Society, European Endocrine and Menopause Society, International Society of the Study of Women’s Sexual Health and a researcher on women’s health issues. She is a frequent speaker for the osteopathic medical community on women’s health issues, and has spoken at the national American Osteopathic Association’s Continuing Medical Education meeting, the Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association’s bi-annual meeting, and in various other medical communities. She is Associate Professor at A.T. Still University, School of Osteopathic Medicine and Clinical Assistant Professor at Midwestern University, Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine, and Member at Large for the Board of Trustees for the Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association.
