Menopause Film Rescheduled for Feb. 3
The documentary on menopause and question-and-answer session with Northwestern Medicine physician experts has been rescheduled for Feb. 3. (The program was originally planned for February 2.)
The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, February 3, at the Thorne Auditorium, 375 E. Chicago Ave. on the Chicago campus of Northwestern University. The evening includes a wine reception with red boas and is a benefit for the Institute for Women’s Health Research at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
The film is “Hot Flash Havoc, A Film of Menopausal Proportions.” After the film, the audience will be able to ask questions of Northwestern experts in menopause and perimenopause.
The Institute for Women’s Health Research supports much needed research on health issues that affect women throughout their lifespan. The institute also funds the Illinois Women’s Health Registry, which provides a pool of potential study subjects for researchers to study diseases in both sexes as well as those specific to women.
In the past, women often were excluded from clinical research. The registry hopes to overcome that with a ready bank of motivated and willing participants.
