 Healthy body. Healthy mind. Healthy life.

In 1900 women’s life expectancy in Australia was only 54. Today it’s 85.

At 54, we’re just getting started. Our increased longevity means Australian women enjoy a “third act” their great, great grandmothers did not.

We’ll be celebrating the gift of living younger, for longer, by exploring different areas of women’s wellbeing each month – from the physical and emotional issues facing women in mid-life such as perimenopause and menopause, through to the financial, social and relationship changes that often accompany this chapter.
