Keep an eye on BBC Breakfast TV next week (6:50-9:20 am), as they will be doing a week’s worth of coverage on the menopause between 13-17th May. The coverage is to coincide with the European Conference on Menopause and Andropause, in Berlin. The conference aims to provide a new perspective of the medical and sociological aspects of women’s health and disease at midlife and beyond, with a view to how our changing society challenges or helps us in our daily practice.
Our project, Reclaim the Menopause and some of our women will be featured during the week. The programme will be looking at all aspects of the menopause so it should be really informative. Follow us on twitter @The Menopause and @Questlife2 next week to keep up with us.
BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour is covering the menopause all week so tune in to have your say or find out more. Here is the link for today’s phone-in show http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09lw30r
