REMINDER: MEDIA ADVISORY: Michelle King Robson, Founder of Scottsdale-Based Women's Health Media Company EmpowHER, Featured Prominently in Award-Winning Documentary Premiering in Scottsdale on December 16

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - December 13, 2010) -

WHAT: Women's health advocate, philanthropist and EmpowHER founder Michelle King Robson of Phoenix, AZ will be featured in critically acclaimed "Hot Flash Havoc, A Film of Menopausal Proportions," which will premiere at an upcoming event in the Valley. The award-winning film is an enlightening, entertaining, humorous, and profound crash-course in what every woman or man needs to know about menopause. While this film is informative as well as funny, it also takes a serious look at the brutal effects hormone imbalances can have on women going through menopause or perimenopause. In the movie, Robson, 51, who had a hysterectomy that resulted in a severe hormonal imbalance in her early 40s, talks about the devastation and hopelessness she felt as a result of the hormonal health issues that she was unable to find proper treatment for. "I got worse than I ever thought I could," says Robson in the film interview. "And I got to a point where all I wanted to do was take my life." Thankfully, Robson was eventually able to find the help she needed to manage her hormone levels properly.
