Menstrual Toxic Shock Syndrome (MTSS)

March 29 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

“The Mysterious and Momentous Times of Menstruation: Keeping the Information Flowing” on March 29 starting at 11:45 a.m. The Webinar will cover a variety of essential topics that center on menstrual health advocacy.

Guest speakers will include Dawn Massabni, from “Don’t Shock Me” the foundation Massabni established to raise awareness about Menstrual Toxic Shock Syndrome (MTSS)

Maddy Massabni, a former Brookdale student, was 19-years-old when she died from MTSS. Her mother, Dawn Massabni, educates women, doctors, and the public about the early warning signs and steps one can take to prevent this deadly syndrome. She also advocates for laws requiring doctors to be educated on the dangers of MTSS and to ask if patients are currently or have recently menstruated.

The history of menstrual products, the chemistry and composition of ingredients in these products, and legislation and policy will also be discussed. The panel discussion will be followed by an audience Q & A.
