In this episode you’ll meet Claire Gill, founder of The National Menopause Foundation. After more than 20 years in marketing and public relations for both nonprofits and Fortune 500 companies, Claire founded the organization in September 2019. Can you believe it didn’t exist until then? No wonder I had no idea that another name for menopause is the climacteric.
Claire was not only fun to talk to, but she is positively full of knowledge. Her goal is to help women thrive at every stage of their lives with access to information and networks that help make menopause a positive, inspiring and empowering time in every woman’s life.
When Claire, who is also CEO of the National Osteoporosis Foundation, realized there was no national nonprofit dedicated solely to women’s journey to and through menopause, so she set out to create one. The National Menopause Foundation is working to create a positive change in how people perceive, understand and experience menopause through education, peer-to-peer support, activism, and research.
Check out the foundation’s website, The Positive Pause podcast, The Hot Flash newsletter, and its online community, The Menopause Metamorphosis for tons of great info that will make you feel less alone and be more informed on your menopause journey.
