(Hybrid) Breaking the Silence on Menopause with Dr. Mary Claire Haver and Kate Muir

Wed 24 May 2023 @ 19 h 30 - 20 h 30

Hybrid Hybrid Event

Two experts in menopause discuss the science behind it, the reality of experiencing it, and the importance of broaching the subject.

Menopause occurs in every menstruating body. Yet few know what to expect when they begin experiencing it, and even fewer understand the science behind the process. Lack of research and cultural taboos around discussions of menstruation have contributed to a general cultural ignorance surrounding the subject, which translates into ill-preparedness and inadequate treatment when it happens. Dr. Mary Claire Haver, MD, has devoted her life to developing nutrition strategies aimed at combating the adverse effects of menopause-induced hormonal changes. Kate Muir has written books and produced documentaries on the subject, aiming to promote awareness and challenge the Together, the two women will discuss the reality of menopause, the stigmas associated with talking about it, and the importance of breaking the silence.
