While half the population experiences menopause, it’s a stage of life that is not openly discussed and even widely overlooked in medical schools. In fact, a 2017 survey sent to U.S. medical residents found that 20% of them had not heard a single lecture on the subject.


Menopause not only impacts female employees, but also their employers with a staggering 99% of women reporting menopausal symptoms having a negative impact on their careers. So, let’s talk about it!
