Lifting the Lid on Cancer and the Menopause
Published: 7th February 2020
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.
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.
