Menopause Awareness Trainer and founder of Menopause Wellbeing NI Anne McGale RGN spoke with Patricia Thompson a fellow nurse colleague who is involved with running the healthy clubs programme in Bredagh GAC in south Belfast about delivering a community event – an awareness session to local women interested in learning more about the subject of ‘Menopause’.
Seventeen ladies of varying ages attended the educational session on 25 August 2022. Each person was given paper on entry and asked to anonymously put forward any and all questions that they wanted addressed during the session.
Symptoms and all treatment options were discussed as well as managing in the work environment.
The event wrapped up at 9.00pm and there was a very positive response to the information given.
This Menopause Awareness Session was hosted in the Parish centre at the Good Shepherd church on the Ormeau Road, Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Thank you to Bredagh, Patricia and the Good Shepard Church for making it possible for this session to take place.
