She provided valuable insights into how women can manage the symptoms of menopause and the various treatment options available to them.

The second speaker, T. Lavanya, a Clinical Nutritionist, discussed how women can manage pre and post-menopause through their diet. She provided valuable tips on the types of food that women should include in their diets to help manage menopausal symptoms effectively.

It was heartening to see such esteemed experts come together to share their knowledge and insights on menopause.

Their talks were informative, and engaging, and provided women with valuable information on how to manage this natural transition effectively.

In conclusion, menopause is an important topic that deserves more attention, and it's great to see organizations like #AP Chambers Women Entrepreneurs, Andhra University, and JCI Vizag Steel City come together to create awareness and educate women about this natural process. We must continue to prioritize women's health and well-being and provide them with the necessary resources and information to manage menopause effectively
