Board Certified Gynecologist and National Certified Menopause Practitioner

Dr. Tara Allmen is a Board Certified Gynecologist, National Certified Menopause Practitioner, Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and CEO of The Allmen Foundation.

After earning her bachelor's degree from Johns Hopkins University and her medical degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, she completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, San Francisco.

Dr. Allmen started her professional career in a private obstetrical practice but ultimately decided to follow her passion for menopausal medicine. She joined The Center for Menopause, Hormonal Disorders and Women's Health in New York City in 1999, focusing her practice on perimenopause and menopause.

In the last decade, Dr. Allmen has educated thousands of medical professionals around the country on menopausal medicine. She has also been featured on television, both in the United States and internationally.

In 2006, Dr. Allmen established The Allmen Foundation, a nonprofit organization. The Foundation supports causes involving women's health, childhood education and animal welfare. The North American Menopause Society, the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to mid-life women's health, refers to Dr. Allmen as a "Visionary" contributor.

Having identified the frustrations of many women regarding objective, scientifically-based advice on menopause or access to professionals who specialize in menopausal medicine, Dr. Allmen created a video called Menopause in an Hour.

Dr. Allmen lives in New York City with her husband, Lawrence M. Kimmel, their two children and a small dog named Sadie.
