"At last we're breaking the M word taboo"
Published: 17th October 2019
In this new article from Good Housekeeping magazine, Dr Newson and Diane Danzebrink chat to Saskia Granville, founder of Mpowered Women, about why it's so vital that we are finally, openly talking about menopause. Together they discuss the importance of menopause education in schools and praise women in the spotlight who openly discuss their symptoms, leading the way on the road to menopause becoming a mainstream conversation.
Newson Health Menopause and Wellbeing Centre was founded by leading menopause specialist and GP, Dr Louise Newson, and officially opened in September 2018 by Liz Earle MBE. Created to help women receive the most appropriate, individualised treatment for their perimenopause and menopause, it has quickly become a centre of excellence, providing care to women of all ages, as well as running educational events for primary care clinicians.
Dr Newson is also the founder of the Menopause Doctor website, a free resource since 2017, providing the latest unbiased, evidence based information about the menopause and perimenopause for women as well as the most recent national and international menopause articles and guidelines for healthcare professionals. The website has been adopted by the Royal College of GPs (RCGP) as an official educational library aimed at patients and healthcare professionals wishing to learn more about the menopause.
Newson Health Research and Education is a not-for-profit organisation founded by Dr Newson, from which all profits gained from the organisation's activities, such as event sponsorship, delegate fees and speaker's fees, are invested back into the business.
