Aging Smart, Aging Well: How Women Make Decisions About Their Health in the 21st Century

HealthyWomen and WebMD present findings from a nationwide initiative targeting the health and well-being information needs of women ages 40 and older.


HealthyWomen and WebMD have partnered to create a nationwide initiative targeting the health and well-being information needs of women, ages 40 and older. From bone and heart health to mental and sexual health—and everything in between—this comprehensive survey of more than 3,100 respondents reveals women's health experiences, concerns and intimate conversations with health care professionals to shed light on how their most important and individual health care decisions are made as well as surface startling gaps in women's health knowledge and care.

The presentation will include an engaging panel discussion on the survey findings and how health care stakeholders can collaborate to put these findings into action to help drive more impactful conversations between women and their health care providers.
