Aging Women

Our Track Record:

The Network is made up of hundreds of vintage vanguards who need to be seen, heard, and understood by our health care system. We have consistently led policy and public education efforts around health issues that disproportionately affect aging women, which was previously known as “older women,” from Parkinson’s Disease to bone health to hospice and palliative care.

What's Next:

The Network will continue to work hard to advance policies that support the well-being of an aging population, particularly around the following areas:  

  • Osteoporosis and other bone health concerns.  
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy and other issues surrounding menopause.
