I want handshake with all of you in my working with all of you the way I intend Society to function for whole of the year at all levels .

All our past Presidents have worked hard by putting in best of their efforts at all fronts, be it Academic, public awareness, social media to reach these heights. Since last 25 years, all of us associated with IMS have been making efforts to create awareness about menopause related health problems and its management in clinicians, Paramedics as well as lay people, we are successful too!
MANY PEOPLE KNOW WHAT TO DO
- ONLY FEW DO WHAT THEY KNOW
“Our mothers were largely silent about what happened to them as they passed through this midlife change. But a new generation of women has already started to break the wall of silence.”
― Trisha Posner
Our goal is to be the initiators of change, change without which there happened no evolution in the history.
Our team has decided to come out with a series of events with some new and innovative concepts.
