Only One Month to go until World Menopause Day 2014
22 September 2014
We know many IMS Members and CAMS join us in celebrating World Menopause Day each year. This year’s campaign is entitled “Prevention of diseases after menopause”.
Lead author of the White Paper, Professor Roger Lobo:
“At the menopause, women have a chance to take steps which will help determine whether they go on to live a healthy and active life and many have the opportunity to review their health and lifestyle to make changes which will benefit their future wellbeing”.
“Many of the measures a woman can take are simple, but effective”, he continued. “Do a little more exercise, eat a little less, if you consume alcohol, do so in moderation”.
An educational toolkit of materials has been developed to support local country initiatives throughout the month of October to raise awareness of this potential health issue and many have been translated into key languages to ensure the campaign has a truly international perspective.
- A White Paper - ‘Prevention of diseases after menopause’
- A short accompanying Slide Kit
- An awareness raising poster –’Maintaining health and preventing disease after the menopause’
- And a Patient information leaflet
