Public Seminar: 'Menarche to Menopause' - Reproductive health across the lifespan

May 5, 2016 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm

The HMRI ‘Menarche to Menopause’ Public Seminar shines a light on the sexual and reproductive health of Australia’s women using 20 years of data from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health. The breadth of ALSWH data is nationally representative and provides insight into health trends, needs, experiences and tendencies of Australia’s adult female population. The community will have the opportunity to ask questions of the expert panel of presenters about the current climate around this integral aspect of health and the public health consequences of their findings.

The ‘Menarche to Menopause’ Public Seminar will be presented Thursday 5 May, in conjunction with the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health (ALSWH) Inaugural Scientific Meeting.

  • Professor Jayne Lucke (La Trobe University) will discuss the different trends around family planning and contraception uptake and use by young women
  • Associate Professor Deborah Loxton (University of Newcastle) will discuss the reproductive health experiences more generally of Australian women throughout their child-bearing years
  • Professor Gita Mishra (University of Queensland) will address the transition through menopause and the impact it has on women
