Women's Health Unplugged

May 28, 2020

Shirley Weir knew she couldn’t be the only woman experiencing brain fog, poor concentration, and mood changes at menopause. Instead of settling for what was offered, she turned her goals of feeling better into a passion project that is bringing the conversation about menopause to centre stage. Her online community Menopause Chicks has become a home and community for over 20,000 women seeking a deeper understanding of their menopause experience.

In this episode, we uncover some of the challenges women face in the cost of their health care, the lack of attention this stage of life gets in medicine and how women can start a learning process for themselves that will help them learn to support themselves while they advocate for better care.
