What is World Menopause Day? According to The International Menopause Society, in collaboration with the World Health Organization, it has been designated World Menopause Day as a day that the IMS and the member national societies of CAMS, the Council of Affiliated Menopause Societies, distribute materials and organize activities to inform women about menopause, its management and the impact of estrogen loss. They have also designated the whole month of October to be World Menopause Month.
The focus this year is the impact of weight gain in menopause and why it is important to exercise and eat healthy.

Be on the look out for what others are doing today and the rest of the month:
Poise - The company has launched a new initiative called The 2nd Talk, trying to get women to talk more openly about this stage of their life as they have been taught in the past not too. Their facebook page today read "It's World Menopause Day! One day may not change everything; "progress" is what we're looking for. And over time, women will finally feel comfortable talking about their experiences, so they get proper treatments for conditions that are very real and not just "all in our heads", as we've been told for years."
