The MENOPAUSE TRANSITION - IHC Virtual Educational Series

Reminder if you haven’t already reserved your spot.

FREE & Limited spots!  Email to reserve your space.

April 5th 6:30-7:30 pm (via zoom)

hosted by Dr. Erin Rurak ND, NCMP 

Hot flashes, mood swings, sleeplessness, a reduction in libido, and pain during sex are just some of the symptoms that women may experience during the menopause transition. It’s a transition that all women will face. Unfortunately, many women go through this life phase with little more than the occasional complaint to close friends and family - many whom advise to grin and bear it - and late-night internet dives.

Dr. Erin Rurak, ND, an experienced doctor certified as a North American Menopause Practitioner, will help shed light on the menopause transition, and insights on how best to manage the many symptoms experienced. Wear some comfy clothes, bundle up on your own couch and have a cup of tea ready, as we will end the discussion with an open question and answer period. What an opportunity! This is intended to be the first in an ongoing IHC Virtual Educational Series.

Again, to reserve your space, email and type MENOPAUSE TALK in the subject line.

Paul is asked to drive his wife’s 93-year-old Grandpa “Bud” all the way from Calgary to his retirement trailer in Mesa, Arizona. Paul hopes to find strange, roadside diners and sleep out under the stars. Bud wants Denny’s and Motel 6.

Paul and Bud spend five days together, navigating the predictable turnoffs on the Interstate while discovering their need for each other, sharing their lives and experiences, their hopes and dreams. This will be Bud’s final year in Mesa, and Paul is his chauffeur.  Suzanne Hepburn directs this staged reading. Bud is played by Vancouver Actor Norm Grohmann and featuring Chris Schuessler as Paul.
