Welcome to the website of the Indian Menopause Society (IMS)
Indian Menopause society, a multi-disciplinary Society was launched in 1995 and since then has grown into an active, vibrant organisation with 36 chapters across the country and more than 2000 Life members from different specialities.
The theme for the year 2013 is ‘Stabilise and Strenghten’. I would urge all of you to help stabilize the health of mature women in our country and help strengthen them physically and emotionally so that they may face the coming years with equanimity. Women from all walks of life will then be ‘Fit at Forty, Strong at Sixty and Independent at Eighty’ as our Slogan encourages them to be!
I hope that all members and Chapters will work towards this goal and this would help to ‘Stabilise and Strengthen’ the Indian Menopause Society.
This year, we will concentrate on two of the issues where prevalence is increasing in our country : Diabetes and Breast Cancer. CME’s and Public Awareness meetings on both these issues will take place in all 36 chapters across the country over the next twelve months.
The focus will also be on increasing our work in Rural areas and also initiating Research activities to generate Indian data on several aspects of Menopausal health. We will have a CME on Planning a Research Project on 03 August in Pune.
The Zonal Conferences this year will be at Allahabad in April, Jodhpur in July, Calicut in September and Gurgaon in November.
The next National Conference will be in Agra in February 2014.
The website is a dynamic, interactive one and I would request all of you to use it effectively by logging on and reading all news, sending in your cases, questions and comments.
