Laura Dirig, MSN FNP-C, Midi Clinician

There when patients need her most: “After dedicating two decades to nursing as an RN/NP, I pursued a master’s degree six years ago, specializing as a Family Nurse Practitioner with a focus on women’s health. My affinity for women’s health stems from years of experience in labor, delivery, and postpartum care, where I found comfort in supporting women through vulnerable moments. The issues experienced by midlife women, along with the lack of physician education, prompted me to dig deeper into menopause and perimenopause.”

On and off HRT: “While taking hormone therapy for my menopausal and perimenopausal symptoms, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I remember the feeling of how the body that I once knew had betrayed me. I was taken off HRT in order to go through chemotherapy and eventually received a double mastectomy. Because of my unique and challenging experience through menopause, I can appreciate both using hormone therapy or finding other holistic solutions.”

Crafting a comprehensive Care Plan: “I find great satisfaction in caring for women in midlife by meeting them where they are, validating their symptoms, and crafting an individualized plan. It goes beyond just prescribing medication, encompassing education about their body and suggesting lifestyle modifications.”
