Dr Louise Newson will be joining Trekstock, Young Adult Cancer Support, in London on February 26th for an event that aims to lift the lid on what it’s really like going through the menopause in your 20s and 30s.

The event is being hosted by Lauren Mahon (GIRLvsCANCER, and host of the BBC's award-winning podcast You, Me and the Big C) and Dr Newson will be speaking at the event on a panel of renowned menopause experts. She will be joined by Dr. Heather Currie from The British Menopause Society and Menopause Matters, Dr. Marie Gerval from The Daisy Network and Samantha Evans, sex expert and founder of Jo Divine. The event will also include stories from Lydia Brain and Becki McGuinness - two young women who are going through it all right now. This special event is a chance to learn from those in the know, and get your own questions answered.
