Dr Newson said: ‘The perimenopause and menopause are life events that every woman will go through – with 47 million globally this year alone .
‘Menopause is a global issue, and that’s why I am so excited to be presenting to fellow clinicians in Iceland about the menopause.
‘Education for healthcare professionals on the recognition and management of menopause symptoms is crucial, as well as the impact of low hormones can have on future health.
‘I’m also really honoured to be asked to appear on Icelandic TV, which is another great opportunity to spread awareness and open the conversation up around the menopause.’
The balance website has also translated a range of free information posters into Icelandic.
The posters are designed to be downloaded, printed and shared in the workplace with colleagues, or even among friends and family, and cover topics such as unexpected aches and pains, low mood, anxiety and depression, bone, heart and brain health, and genitourinary symptoms.
