Women Growing Older: Our Bodies, Ourselves

With increased longevity, women over 60 have new needs, norms, expectations, challenges, and opportunities. This workshop will explore some of the key aspects that affect our health and social, emotional, and sexual well-being. Together we need to embrace aging, change the aging paradigm, and affirm women’s potential for growth and development in the second half of life so that women over 60 can age well with a sense of power and purpose. The format will be a presentation with time for participants to share their experiences and questions. Instructor: Joan Ditzion
