This month’s lecture will be presented by Dr. Jennifer Gordon, Department of Psychology, University of Regina, CIHR Canada Research Chair in Women’s Mental Health. Popular opinion suggests that most, if not all, women suffer from moderate to severe premenstrual syndrome (a.k.a.

How much do hormones like estrogen and progesterone really affect women’s daily mood? Come to this talk to find out what science has to say on the matter!
