Design the Second Half of Your Life: The Innovative Woman
A Real Women on Health online radio show interview with Kelley Connors, MPH, Womens’ Life Coach and Betsy Furler, CEO, Communications Circles Betsy Furler started out as a speech pathologist and delighted in helping young children and adults improve their ability to do well at school and feel good about themselves in their early years. However, as much as she enjoyed “being” a speech pathologist, she listened to her heart which inspired her and to expand her capacity beyond the school walls. It turns out that by experimenting with technology, she found herself immersed in the new field of digital health including using applications for a more inclusive society. Her interest grew as she witnessed the use of digital technology by a broader population of people, including the disabled and elderly to improve their health and wellbeing. Today, she shares her knowledge about using technology and app development to educate others to make a difference for the growing elderly population. She has spoken at many national and international conferences on the use of technology and disabilities including SXSWInteractive, While we sometimes get overwhelmed with the idea of reinventing ourself, by integrating the past with our emerging passions, we can see that all that is required is tuning in to your own desires and believing in what stirs you. The big question is: what is stirring inside you must be revealed with action, trying and learning. It’s all about curiosity and experimentation to live the journey you desire!

Spirituality of Age with Robert Weber, PhD, Carol Osborn, PhD
As we enter the years beyond midlife, our quest for an approach to aging takes on added urgency and becomes even more relevant in our daily lives. Empowering a new generation of seekers to view aging as a spiritual path, authors Robert Weber and Carol Orsborn reveal that it is by engaging with the difficult questions about loss, meaning, and mortality--questions we can no longer put off or ignore--that we continue to grow. In fact, the realization of our full spiritual potential comes about not by avoiding the challenges aging brings our way but by working through them. Addressing head-on how to make the transition from fears about aging into a fuller, richer appreciation of the next phase of our lives, the authors guide you through 25 key questions that can help you embrace the shadow side of aging as well as the spiritual opportunities inherent in growing older. Sharing their stories and wisdom to both teach and demonstrate what it means to feel energized about the possibilities of your later years, they explore how to find a constructive role for regret, shame, and guilt, realize your value to society, and embrace the freedom of your later years to become more fully yourself. Coming from Catholic Jesuit and Jewish backgrounds respectively, as well as drawing from the latest research in psychological and religious theory, Weber and Orsborn provide their own conversational and candid answers to the 25 key questions, supporting their insightful and compassionate guidance with anecdotes, inspirational readings, and spiritual exercises. By engaging deeply with both the shadow and light sides of aging, our spirits not only learn to cope--but also to soar.

6 Things You Don't Know About America's Caregiving Youth
Did you know that there are over a million kids under 18 who are caregivers in the U.S.? Find out the 6 Things these Million Kids Have in Common in this upcoming on-line conversation with Real Women on Health! These are children under age 18, at least 1.2 million, who caregive for an ailing parent, grandparent or sibling on an ongoing basis. For many of these kids, they are caring for at least one parent or grandparent, with a chronic condition or a disabled lifestyle, resulting in school dropouts or inability to get the most out of school on an ongoing basis. “The main reason why children undertake inappropriate caring roles is a lack of adequate support services for their ill/disabled relatives. If appropriate and adequate support services are not provided, most of the care and support required falls to family members.” Statistical profiles of young carers.
