‘Bring on the Heat: Charting a Course through Perimenopause Based on the Latest Science’ is a menopause talk series hosted by researchers and clinicians at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Iowa. The hosts of this seminar come from a variety of backgrounds including psychiatry, gynecology, exercise science, nutrition, and nursing. Each session will include presentations from these experts, discussions, and interactive activities. Topics will focus on the signs and symptoms of perimenopause such as mood, anxiety, physical and sexual health, cardiovascular risk, cognition, and body changes. Resources on evidence-based preventions and treatments will be provided.

This series will provide a space for the exchange of information and open communication among researchers, perimenopausal people, and the broader community.  The information shared will be relevant to perimenopausal people, including women, nonbinary folks, and trans-men with intact ovaries. Through this series, we hope to bring awareness and education to those experiencing symptoms related to menopause.
