British Menopause Society 29th Annual Scientific Conference:  An integrated approach to menopausal care

The conference programme has been designed to provide a comprehensive range of lectures and workshops to refresh and broaden your knowledge of post reproductive health and to give you the confidence to manage the menopause in the way you feel is best.

The Programme Planning Group, jointly chaired by Miss Lynne Robinson and Dr Pratima Gupta, has produced an excellent line up including Managing menopausal symptoms: a cognitive behavioural approach; Obesity, menopause and hormones; the debate, which this year is This house believes complementary and alternative medicine does more harm than good; and the ever popular Menopause Café.

We are delighted to welcome Professor Walter Rocca from the Mayo Clinic, Rochester in the US who is delivering the BMS Annual Lecture: Bilateral oophorectomy, estrogen deprivation and accelerated ageing and Dr Rossella Nappi from the University of Pavia in Italy who will give the Pat Patterson Memorial Lecture: Sexuality in Premature Ovarian Insufficiency.
