World Menopause Day 2022

Menopause: Continuing the Conversation

After years of silence the menopause has gone mainstream – and opening-up, whether it’s with friends, family or work colleagues is a cause for celebration. And we want to continue that conversation. Produced in partnership with ITN Business, in our news-style programme we'll be talking about the businesses who are making changes in the workplace, why lifestyle changes can help improve symptoms and how HRT isn’t for everyone. Our programme will cut through the misinformation to give straight talking, practical advice with British Menopause Society health professionals.
Louise Minchin presents ‘Menopause: Continuing the Conversation'.
