Learn more about the menopause

There are many myths and misconceptions surrounding the menopause, so it’s essential to know the facts – and a great way to do this is to attend a webinar by a leading expert and public speaker. In addition to presenting talks, workshops and webinars to workplaces Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange, is now hosting her own regular webinars for women interested in the menopause, called ‘Understanding the Menopause’.

Norma Goldman BPharm.(Hons) MRPharmS. MSc. (health promotion) has a pharmacy degree and worked as a pharmacist for several years and is a qualified health promotion specialist. She has been presenting talks and workshops on the menopause for over 23 years, when she founded The Menopause Exchange, and her in-depth knowledge has helped thousands of women enjoy a more comfortable menopause.

Norma’s ‘Understanding the menopause’ webinar is suitable for women at or approaching the menopause, women who have had a premature menopause (before age 40) or a hysterectomy, or anyone with an interest in women’s midlife health. Post-menopausal women attend presentations too. Every webinar provides impartial, reliable, up-to-date and practical information on all aspects of the menopause, to help women make informed decisions about coping at this time of life. If women join the webinar, they’ll be able to ask questions, receive a factsheet and hear about other women’s experiences. The webinars are not designed for healthcare professionals and those in the healthcare industry. The webinars are accessed through Zoom.

Topics covered include:
• General information on the menopause
• Menopausal symptoms
• Health promotion advice and self-help lifestyle tips
