Mitzi's Message:  Taking Action 

Last month, I promised that I would form my thoughts around reproductive thoughts and share them with you in this newsletter.  I have always contended that women’s health is significantly impacted by policy and legislation, whether that be through addressing reproductive health, access to care through insurance, or the amount of money appropriated to women's health research. But the most pressing issue today is the impending decision of Roe v Wade, as this ruling could have far-reaching implications not only on reproductive health rights and women's health, but also in regards to privacy considerations, workforce issues, and even investment in healthcare companies.  


I wanted to find a way to highlight these issues for our community and others so that we can understand these implications, know how to take action, protect ourselves, and be equipped with critical knowledge. As a result, I decided to host a webinar focused on the unpredicted consequences of the pending Roe v Wade decision. Notably, every guest I reached out to was enthusiastic to be part of this event. 


I invite you to join me for this webinar, Aftershocks: Predicting the Unexpected Consequences of the Roe v Wade Decision, on July 6th.  You'll hear from a wide range of experts who will provide important information and share ways that you can take action in a meaningful way.     

Innovator Spotlight: OsteoBoost - a Bone Health Breakthrough

In the US, 1 in 2 women will experience a bone fracture sometime in their life due to low bone density or osteoporosis. What if you could slow your loss of bone and thus reduce the risk of fracture by wearing a device for just half an hour each day? This episode introduces listeners to Laura Yecies, CEO of Bone Health Technologies, which manufactures OsteoBoost, a breakthrough, non-drug treatment device using vibration to reduce bone loss.

Featured Article: Bone Health Matters More Than You Might Think

When considering health, people tend to think about leading causes of death such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Contrary to common belief, you may not realize that caring for your bones is just as crucial as taking care of your heart, brain, and other body areas. In this article, you’ll learn about bone health and what happens to the body when bones become unhealthy. In addition, we provide details about osteoporosis, including its risk factors, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
