Watch: Menopause Roundtable with Sarah Parish
At DR.VEGAN® we’re passionate about health, nutrition and wellness, and part of our mission is to break taboos and lift the lid on subjects people should be talking about, but don’t. Menopause is one of them.
In our recent survey of over 1,000 women going through menopause, we asked 'What more can employers do to better support women going through menopause' and the #1 answer was 'Provide education on menopause for all employees'. So we held the DR.VEGAN Menopause Roundtable, hosted by Sarah Parish.
Menopause impacts every person in the world - it’s not just a subject for women going through menopause. Husbands, partners, colleagues, employers, friends, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters should all be aware of how menopause can affect the women close to them at home, at work and across society, so we can all better understand and support all women going through menopause.
