This is PERIOD Podcast, episode 31. I am so pleased to bring you this week’s episode with guest Dr. Julie Hennegan. Dr. Julie Hennegan is a Research Associate at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. In this episode, Dr. Hennegan and I talk about the concept of menstrual hygiene management, and how what we assume menstruators need isn’t always what they actually need. I also really appreciated what Dr. Hennegan had to say about making sure that the evidence we collect on menstruation is good. You’ll see what she means in the interview - have a listen!
