Content and Structure
Based on my original research study findings, it was evident that menopause education for women is lacking and is crucial for successful navigation of this life event. I have developed this 3-part series to address key interventions: basic menopause education, spousal support, and self-guided non-pharmacologic interventions women can utilize to address menopausal symptoms. My presentation is completely customizable, and each session is roughly 30 minutes with time for Q&A. Presentations can be done in person or remotely.
1: Menopause: Ready or Not
The aim of this presentation is to provide basic education on menopause, including symptoms and treatments with the goal that women will be armed with the knowledge to have an educated discussion with healthcare providers. Additionally, and very important is that younger women would participate so that they can be aware of what they might expect before they enter perimenopause and menopause.
2: Men and Menopause
Men are very much affected by menopause, but many men know very little about it. This presentation discusses the physiologic changes that are taking place as women go through menopause and educates men on resulting symptoms. The goal of this presentation is to provide men with the knowledge of what menopause is and how various symptoms can be treated, allowing them to provide support and be active participants in their partner’s treatment.
3: Menopause – Now What?
This presentation focuses on what women can do themselves (nonpharmacologic interventions) to help improve quality of life during their menopause journey. The main focus is on self-care.
“Thanks for this series. It has been very beneficial. I really appreciated the session today and last week."
“I literally cried…I am going through menopause and I have been feeling like I am going crazy. I cry all the time even when there is nothing wrong with me.”
“Again, thanks for these series. It helps to know that I am not alone.”

"As the dedicated health and wellness coach, my corporate client and I decided to create a webinar series for our members to share much requested information on menopause education and support.
I was delighted to have an opportunity to partner with Dr. Bremer who is very knowledgeable and has published original research and is abreast of the latest menopause science . Dr. Bremer is very passionate about empowering both men and women with the knowledge of what they can do to minimize symptoms associated with menopause and live well during this often-misunderstood stage of life. Dr. Bremer has created several engaging and informative presentations for our client population. Due to popular demand, we have already booked her for another program. I look forward to working with her in the future on additional projects and can’t wait to share everything I have learned with my own friends and family."
