Real Women on Health!
About This Show
Welcome to our on-line community of midlife women, healthcare professionals, healthcare and wellness researchers and book authors. Through candid conversations filtered with expert commentary, we empower women to be our own best health and wellness advocates. We highlight new science, medical research and "experts" who represent the stories of real women.
Sparked by the collective curiosity and wisdom of our members, we guide an intimate, informative "fresh" dialogue that is always respectful of women's lives, and fun. Join us or let us know about a topic or person who would be a great fit for midlife women. Thanks for listening!
