For immediate release: 14 April 2015

Learn more about the menopause and related topics

If you, your friends or your work colleagues want to learn more about the menopause, it’s time to arrange a talk by a leading expert. Norma Goldman BPharm (Hons) MRPharmS MSc (health promotion), founder of The Menopause Exchange, pharmacist and qualified health promotion specialist, is available for talks, seminars and podcasts. Her in-depth knowledge has helped thousands of women enjoy a more comfortable menopause. You can organise talks and seminars in your home, workplace, organisation, health spa, health club or local women’s group. Talks are also presented in GP practices and hospitals, for journalists and at exhibitions.

The 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 a general interest in midlife health. Often, post-menopausal women attend the talks to obtain information on post-menopausal health. The talks are also ideal for healthcare professionals.

Every talk provides impartial, reliable, up-to-date and practical information on all aspects of the menopause, to help you make informed decisions about coping at this time of life. You can ask questions, take a factsheet home and hear about other women’s experiences. The topics covered include:
• General information on the menopause
• Menopausal symptoms
• Prescribed medicine alternatives to HRT
• Complementary therapies
• Nutrition and exercise
• Self-help lifestyle measures.

Examples of positive feedback:

"I have benefited from the health promotion information especially dietary advice." (Attendee from a health organisation)
