Menopause Information Evening, Oct 18 2018, Dumfries
« on: October 11, 2018, 12:17:50 PM »

WORLD Menopause Day 2018 is being marked with a special information evening in Dumfries, Scotland, on Thursday 18 Oct 2018.

The event at 'The Usual Place' on the corner of Lover’s Walk and Academy Street, Dumfries, is an opportunity to spread the message that women can help manage their menopause by making changes in a variety of areas, such as diet and lifestyle.

One of the speakers at Thursday’s event is our own Dr Heather Currie, Associate Specialist Gynaecologist with NHS Dumfries and Galloway, Trustee and past Chairman of the British Menopause Society and Founder and MD of Menopause Matters, who said:
“The menopause affects all women and can have significant effects on quality of life, impacting on home life, work life, social life and sex life as well as later health. It is essential that women access information so that they can make informed choices about diet and lifestyle changes as well as treatment options to help manage their menopause. There’s a wealth of information out there which can help make a real difference in how a woman experiences the menopause. It’s not a subject which receives a lot of public attention, or where you see information being publicly shared and discussed - despite the fact that this will inevitably be experienced by more than half the population. So I’m delighted that World Menopause Day is being marked on Thursday October 18 with this Menopause Information Evening.”
  • The event runs from 6 pm to 8 pm on October 18 2018 at 'The Usual Place', 6 Lover’s Walk, Dumfries. For directions, see the Google map here.
  • Also speaking at the event is Katrina Martin, a Specialist Menopause Nurse.
  • In addition to providing information, the evening is intended as a social event, with women able to share experiences and enjoy refreshments.
Dr Currie said: “We’ve already seen really strong interest in the event, which is terrific, so we’d ask anyone seeking a space to please contact us in advance.”

There is a charge of £2.00 per person to cover venue cost, and anyone interested in attending is asked to email:
