Feeling hot and bothered?

Issued: Fri, 02 Nov 2018 16:54:00 GMT

With the advancing age demographic, at any given time there are more women than ever experiencing the menopause, and peri-menopausal symptoms, at work. The University believes that it is important that these women feel supported, and that all staff have a good awareness and understanding of what this experience can mean for many women.

We are arranging a series of events to address these aims, the first of which will be running on Monday 19th November. This is a café-style event, where staff are invited to come along, share their experiences, and tell us what would make a difference for them as they work through the menopause.

We are delighted to have Professor Mary Ann Lumsden opening the event. Mary Ann Lumsden is Professor of Medical Education and Gynaecology, Head of the Academic Unit of Reproductive & Maternal Medicine at the University of Glasgow. She is an Honorary Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. She has a clinical and research interest in heavy menstrual bleeding and the menopause.

We will be hosting the event at 10.00 – 11.30 on Monday 19 November in the St Andrew’s Building, Rm 237AB.

Hot drinks and light refreshments will be supplied. Please register your attendance at the link below:
