Yes, aging is a fact of life, yet, for most women there is still a negative stigma associated with getting older. What can we all do to help change the conversation and learn to celebrate this time in our lives? The short answer is taking care our ourselves! It all boils down to cutting through the messaging which has been confusing at best and putting ourselves first. That begins with advocating for our own health so we can age smart and age well.
Beth Battaglino, RN is a women’s health expert and the CEO of HealthyWomen which connects and empowers millions of women in midlife across the country. They are the nation’s leading nonprofit educating and empowering women to make decisions about their health care.
Join Lauren and Beth as they have a refreshing conversation about: how we can age differently (and better) than our parents; ways in which osteoporosis is preventable; other preventable health issues for women; how to prepare and talk to your healthcare provider; where to find the resources you need to take control of your midlife health; the possible ramifications of not taking your health seriously; and how to truly celebrate this wonderful chapter of your life. This is a conversation you will NOT want to miss.
