NB The 17th World Congress on the Menopause will run in lieu of the Annual AMS Congress in 2020.
I warmly welcome you to Melbourne and to the 17th World Congress on the Menopause hosted by the IMS with the support of the Australasian Menopause Society. The IMS Scientific Committee is preparing a program that will facilitate and stimulate discussion of the full spectrum of the physical, psychological, social and environmental factors that contribute to midlife and older women’s health and wellbeing, with menopause as a new beginning.
Bringing the Congress to Melbourne provides a unique opportunity to celebrate Melbourne’s rich history of research that led to quantum leaps in the understanding of the physiology of the menopause transition and its impact on women’s physical and psychological health.
Moreover, Melbourne is a wonderful city to visit. It is friendly, vibrant and multicultural, and famous for its blockbuster sporting events, gorgeous gardens and parks, fabulous restaurants, chic boutiques, lively cafes, and bars and music. The Melbourne Convention Centre, our Congress venue, is a state-of-the-art facility situated on the Yarra River, across from the city centre and surrounded by an array of hotels, serviced apartments, cafes and restaurants.
So, come to Melbourne to expand and share your knowledge about midlife women’s health. but make sure you take the opportunity to explore and enjoy this diverse, colourful city.
I look forward to welcoming you to Melbourne, my city, in 2020.
Professor Susan Davis
President of The International Menopause Society
and Chairman of the Organizing Committee for the 17th World Congress on the Menopause.
