The 18th of October—World Menopause Awareness Day—is a day of celebration for us at Womaness. But it is also a day of reflection. We’re here to change the conversation around menopause, from how we address it as a society, to how women share their stories, to how trusted information helps you ask better questions of your doctor. But there’s another change needed, too: doctors becoming more empowered to have the answers for you.
Studies show there is a need for increased knowledge on menopause issues in the country’s OB-GYN residency programs. That’s why Womaness has pledged to donate $25,000 to Mayo Clinic, a national leader in research and education for women’s health, including menopause. This gift will support efforts to deepen the medical community’s understanding of how to treat the symptoms of menopause—and is our next step forward in turning our mission into real action.
Menopause, meet your match.
