"Menopause, or the 'change of life,' is different for each woman. It is not a disease that needs to be treated, but you might need help if symptoms are bothersome. Due to changing hormonal levels, symptoms can last for years," a news release notes.

The monthly Healthy Life Workshops are open to the public. The free educational sessions are held the first Thursday of each month featuring physicians, dieticians and other healthcare professionals covering a variety of topics, including diet and nutrition, exercise and flexibility, women's health issues, and other health topics. Light refreshments are served, and reservations are not necessary.
