Menopause at the Medical School
Published: 5th October 2020
A Menopause at the Medical School event was held recently at the university of Warwick and led by the Athena Swan Menopause Task Force and Unit of Academic Primary Care.
The seminar, held for staff and students at the university, was attended by over 100 people on the day and highlighted the importance of menopause in the work place.
Speakers at the seminar included Dr Louise Newson (Menopause Specialist and GP), Mr Anthony Parsons (Consultant Gynaecologist at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire) and Ms Julie Robinson (Founder of Menohealth).
Dr Sarah Hillman who co-lead the event said " It was fantastic to see such great engagement from staff and students at the university, the event highlighted just how important the menopause is in our workplace".
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.
