Menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats and other symptoms you may not even be aware of, are not trivial, short-lived or something for women to “endure”. They can be major life disruptions that we don’t talk about enough. Menopause also increases a woman’s risk for health conditions such as heart disease, osteoporosis and a range of genitourinary issues. Understand the menopause experience and challenges women face, and how to talk to your care providers about options that might help you.

This World Menopause Day, join Nese Yuksel and Christine Hughes from the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences as they discuss evidence-based information on lifestyle and treatment options, empowering you to make informed choices about your health.

Throughout this presentation, the term women is used but the symptoms of menopause can affect all individuals who experience menopause.

This event is open to all alumni and their guests.
