For Patient Care AAFP is the Answer

Family physicians understand all too well how easy it is for time to pass while focusing on family, career, and life in general. However, it’s important for your patients, especially women, to not brush off health concerns.

This excellent overview advocates for women to take an active approach to their health as they age.
