Balance - Dr Newson to launch new app for menopausal women
Published: 18th October 2019
Today, on World Menopause Day, Dr Newson is delighted to announce that in Spring 2020 she will be launching Balance; an app that allows perimenopausal and menopausal women to log and share their symptoms, seek advice from an expert and find and support other women.
Speaking of the launch, Dr Newson said "For too long, women have been struggling to find the support, information and guidance they need to help them through the menopause. But not for much longer.
At Newson Health, we’ve spent the past the past year helping women who are struggling with perimenopause and menopause. Now, we’re setting out to help the millions of women across the world who need that extra support.
Today, on World Menopause Day, it gives me great pleasure to announce that we’ve been busy working on an app for women that gives them all the information and support they need to make the right decisions for their unique bodies. Our app is designed by women, and based on real womens’ experiences of perimenopause and menopause. Our purpose as a team has always been to provide women with the knowledge and guidance to know what’s right for their bodies and help them to restore equilibrium in their lives - that’s why we’ve called our new app ‘Balance’.
Our ambition is to make an app freely available to all women, and we’ve already been overwhelmed by the generosity of supporters who have volunteered funding for this next stage of the project to help make the Balance vision a reality. With the right support we’re aiming to launch in Spring 2020. If you’re interested in getting involved, then head over to our new website, where you can sign up to be the first to know about any exciting new updates. We can’t wait to share it with you!"
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.
