Is legal cannabis a game-changer for women’s health, what should women know about sexual health after menopause?
Those questions and more will be discussed and debated this Saturday, Oct. 13 during a first-of-its-kind summit focusing on perimenopause and menopause, organized by Shirley Weir, of Port Moody, who is also the founder of Menopause Chicks.
“The event really grew out of my online community. Women are very active, they are asking lots of questions. We created this event to appeal to those women, they are embarking on mid-life and they want health education or they’re through menopause, and in their early 50s, [and asking] now what.”
Called MOKITA: Empowered for Midlife, (with Mokita meaning elephant in the room), the event will be held at the Diamond Family Auditorium on the SFU campus in Burnaby, but will also be live-streamed with similar conferences being held in Toronto and Seattle.
