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 arrange a talk by a leading expert and public speaker.

Norma Goldman BPharm. (Hons) MRPharmS. MSc. (health promotion), founder and director of The Menopause Exchange, has a pharmacy degree and is a qualified health promotion specialist. She is available for talks and workshops on the menopause, for women, men, healthcare professionals and journalists. Her talks can be organised by workplaces, women’s groups, exhibitions/conferences and health spas and clubs. Norma travels to many parts of the UK.

‘Understanding the menopause’ talks are suitable for women at or approaching the menopause, women who have had a premature menopause (before 40) or a hysterectomy or anyone with an interest in midlife health. Post-menopausal women attend talks too, and men are always welcome. Every talk 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. Attendees can ask questions, take a factsheet home and hear about other women’s experiences. Topics covered include:
• General information on the menopause
• Menopausal symptoms
• Health promotion advice and self-help lifestyle tips
• Complementary therapies and medicines
• Nutrition
