More than 6 million women in the United States experience menopausal and postmenopausal symptoms annually. Although up to 80% of women experience vasomotor symptoms, there continues to be stigma surrounding conversations of menopause and its associated symptoms. Due to this pervasive taboo, women often dismiss or ignore their symptoms. This neglect leads to greater utilization of healthcare resources and increased productivity losses with an ultimate economic burden of more than $810 billion in the US. Studies have shown that when empowered with education women feel better prepared to manage their symptoms. This project aims to dismantle the stigma by providing women with resources and education regarding menopause to empower them to seek support and guidance as they progress into this next stage of their life.
