Description

“Are you experiencing memory and concentration issues? Sleeping poorly? Feeling anxious? Going through a mood rollercoaster? Crying? Feeling powerless? Overwhelmed? Sad? Mad? It may be because there’s a lot on your plate, or if you’re over 40, it may be because of hormone fluctuations and decline during perimenopause and menopause.

I know, no one talks about menopause. I do -- because menopause is not a disease and all women will go through it, women should know what to expect from the menopause transition. Menopause affects the woman, her partner, her family, her kids, friends, relationships and coworkers.I would like you to join this conversation, break the menopause taboo, and learn how to deal with the physical, emotional and cognitive changes of menopause.”

Workshop Description

Menopause is not a disease but hormonal fluctuations cause physical, emotional and cognitive changes which affect women experiencing it—and their partners, children, family, friends, and work colleagues. The potential impact of this important life event should be taken more seriously, and talked about more openly. Women should be aware of the physical changes of menopause and know where to get education, information, treatment and support.

Employers can ensure that issues like menopause are highlighted. Inexpensive measures like adjustments to women’s physical working environment, providing information, support, and raising awareness about menopause with workers and managers, generates a positive cultural environment for menopausal women and those working with them.

Let’s talk about menopause—women have to be educators to change the workplace- if we don’t talk about it doesn’t exist!

BIO

Teresa Isabel Dias is a pharmacist and after 20 years of working in community pharmacy realized there’s a void in the health care system when it comes to the care and support of women in midlife, especially during the menopause transition, and she became a Certified Menopause Practitioner (NCMP) and the founder of MenopausED. Teresa provides education and support to women going through the menopause transition which can start in the early 40s.
