The Menopause in Colour: Time for an Inclusive Conversation

This event has finished

Missed our brilliant webinar with My Menopause Centre's Dr Tonye Wokoma and Dr Manisha Singh? You can catch it here.

While the menopause is something that every woman will experience, there is still a lack of awareness of the menopause transition, symptoms and treatment options – especially for women of colour. In this joint Rest Less and My Menopause Centre webinar, Dr Tonye Wokoma and Dr Manisha Singh share their first-hand experience and expertise to help you understand:

  • The stages of the menopause transition (perimenopause, menopause, postmenopause)
  • The symptoms of menopause and what the data says about how symptoms may differ by ethnicity
  • How culture can impact the taboos around the menopause and what needs to be done to tackle these
  • The range of ways to manage symptoms
  • HRT – benefits, myths and risks
  • How to make the most of your GP appointment

Dr Tonye and Dr Manisha also answered many great questions in the Q&A toward the end of the webinar.

Knowledge is power and this session highlighted the need to shatter the stigma and taboos around menopause through education, empathy and compassion.
