BE AWARE OF:

- The intersection of diet and lifestyle in the menopause transition
- The post-meal responses in peri- and post- menopausal women and how they relate to disease risk
BE ABLE TO:
- Translate dietary advice to peri- and post- menopausal women
- Understand key disease risk factors which are elevated in post-menopausal women to provide targeted dietary and lifestyle advice
- Evaluate the benefits of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for peri- and post- menopausal women
