Menopause. Traditionally, menopause has been something we don't really talk about. It has been something that women have had to deal with quietly and often on their own. Today - we're going to TALK about it!
Join us for an eye-opening conversation with Dr. Dedeshya Holowenko, a family physician with a special interest in women's health. We dig into some important questions: What is menopause and why it is important for women's health to understand it? What are some of the common symptoms? Why does it affect women differently? What can women DO to manage symptoms for a better quality of life during the peri-menopausal and menopausal years of their lives? Why is it sometimes so hard to get help during this time? To be healthy is to be well-resourced - and this is certainly one time of life that finding quality of resources is key to well-being.
A friend of the podcast, Dr. Holowenko spoke to us in Season 1 about Breaking Down Barriers for Women Accessing Healthcare and again as the Covid19 pandemic was emerging as a global health emergency: Covid19 - What You Need to Know Today. She brings a welcome perspective to all our discussions!
