Educating the Specialists
This month I had the pleasure of presenting three lectures at the 28th Annual Conference of the British Menopause Society on the subjects of menopause in the workplace, menopause training and education for GPs, and treating women with early menopause.
Consultant Gynaecologist, Mr Michael Dooley (pictured above), gave the key lecture at this, the largest annual conference in Europe on menopause and post-reproductive health, and there were also lectures about cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis, both important conditions that are far more common in menopausal women.
I was delighted to be part of the event and I’m excited to be working with other menopause specialists to achieve the integrated health team advances outlined in Mr Dooley’s very inspiring quote.
