Published: 28th November 2019
Dr Louise Newson rewarded twenty four members of her inspirational team at Newson Health Menopause & Wellbeing Centre in Stratford upon Avon, to a glamorous night out in support of the Royal Osteoporosis Society.
The Royal Osteoporosis Society Gala Dinner was held at the famous Banqueting Hall, Whitehall, London on Wednesday 27th November, to raise much needed funds for this important charity.
Guests, including superstar songstress Dame Shirley Bassey and Strictly Come Dancing Stars Aljaž Škorjanec and Janette Manrara, were entertained with an awe-inspiring performance by Welsh Mezzo Suprano, Katherine Jenkins and featured an exclusive catwalk show by fashion designer Julien Macdonald.
Novelist and former politician, Jeffrey Archer, hosted the charity auction which raised over £69,000 from a glittering array of donated prizes and comedy genius, Alan Carr, hosted the event.
Osteoporosis is a condition where your bones lose strength, making you more likely to break a bone than the average adult. As bones lose strength, they can break after a minor bump or fall. You may hear your doctor refer to these as fragility fractures. A broken bone and a fracture are the same thing. Living with osteoporosis means you are at higher risk of breaking a bone. But not everyone with osteoporosis goes on to break a bone. It’s not inevitable, and we’re here to help you live well with this condition.
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.
