AMWA joined the Spring 2019 convening of the BOlder Women’s Health Coalition on May 14, 2019 which brought together 26 groups, including associations, federal agencies, industry leaders, and more.
The meeting was hosted by the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health. The mission of the coalition is to catalyze a new awareness of the health and wellness needs of older women and break down stereotypes that lead to further illness, social isolation, and diminished quality of life.
Work of the coalition will be based on 3 principles:
- Empower every woman with the knowledge she needs to grow older with health, vitality, and dignity.
- Empower every woman with access to and provision of quality of health care.
- Empower every woman with the social supports that are necessary for health and vitality.
