HHN Joins Forces with Menopause the Musical®

For women going through the “change of life,” managing menopausal symptoms is no laughing matter: A recent national survey by the Hormone Health Network found that 72 percent of women experiencing troublesome symptoms have not received treatment, and another 60 percent are not discussing treatment options with their doctor. To help bridge this conversation gap, the Network teamed up with Menopause the Musical®, a light-hearted look at four women coping with their menopausal symptoms, at the Warner Theater in August to introduce the Menopause Map to its Washington, D.C., audience. Attendees had the opportunity to complete the online, interactive Map on-site, and received the Networks’ patient fact sheets on menopause.
