SHARE OUR VIDEO ON THE MENSTRUAL CYCLE

Our fun, educational, animated video on the menstrual cycle is available on our public information website, You and Your Hormones. The site is a collection of useful and accessible resources for schoolchildren and the general public.

The Public Engagement Committee oversaw production of the video, to help achieve the Society’s key aim of engaging the public with the importance of endocrinology and its impact on their health.

Spread the knowledge by sharing the video with your family, friends, school contacts, students and colleagues.
