2020 MEGSMENOPAUSE CONFERENCE – WHAT TO EXPECT?
In 2020 I will be hosting my third conference with all of its programme focused on the menopause. On this edition we will be giving special highlight to the osteoporosis as one of the biggest diseases amongst women menopausal aged, and therefore I will also be supporting the Royal Osteoporosis Society. Most of you already know how close to my heart this topic is since I lost my dear mom to osteoporosis, so it will definitely be a very special edition of my conference.
The alignment of speakers will be of great quality like in previous editions and will count with top medical experts such as Dr. Louise Newson (@menopause_doctor) and Miss Sarah Matthews. I will be updating the programme running up to the end of the year but am already excited to announce Pelviva will be one of our headline partners, joining voices with MegsMenopause to help tear down the taboos around bladder leakage. It will definitely be a great programme with many surprises and focus on women empowerment by giving them the knowledge and confidence to take on this time of their lives.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Takes place at Central Hall Westminster, it will be a day of taboo-busting, open conversation and the latest in scientific research on the menopause.
In 2018 I hosted the very first MegsMenopause conference which guest speakers and experts included: specialist menopause nurse and chair of the British Menopause Society Kathy Abernethy, founder of Menopause Matters Dr Heather Currie and renowned gynaecologist Dr Sara Matthews (BBC One The Truth About The Menopause). They were joined by the Daisy Network charity who are the foremost authority on premature menopause and Women Health Concern (WHC).
On the 2019 edition of MM conference I was also proudly supporting Daisy Network charity and was really pleased with the quality of our guests speakers and what an amazing engaging audience. Some of the speakers included Dr Louise Newson and Dr Saadia Meyer, menopause experts that covered the clinical side of the Menopause and how to get the best support throughout this journey. Additionally I also had Carolyn Gaskin opening the conference with me, to break the ice in the room so many of the attendees that bravely made it to the conference alone didn’t have to be feeling alone. The built up atmosphere was excellent, and I had life coach Michelle Zelli closing the session with an amazing talk on Women Empowerment and how you can shape yourself to reach better version of yourself.
