Menopause And The City is a Smart D8 pilot from Dr Louise Fitzgerald of Grafton Medical Practice/ The pilot aims to educate women and their family and friends about menopause so they can be empowered to manage their symptoms using self-management strategies but equally know when to seek professional help appropriately.

A project with truly scalable potential, Dr Louise Fitzgerald is aiming for Dublin 8 to become the centre of the first city-wide approach to positive menopause education and support.
