Black Women’s Health Imperative

Studies show that one in two women and up to one in four men over age 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis in their lifetime. BHOF works to improve patient care and support for those who have broken bones due to osteoporosis and to educate the public to prevent osteoporosis and broken bones and promote strong bones for life.

National Menopause Foundation

National Menopause Foundation was created to be a place for women to gain knowledge, be inspired, connect with others, and ultimately, feel as prepared as possible for the changes that come with perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause. Approximately 1.3 million women enter menopause each year in the U.S. and it is estimated that with women’s current average life expectancy, they will spend one-third of their lives postmenopausal. Those figures are a call to action that we need to change the status quo and pay more attention to women in this stage of life.
