Norwalk, Conn. (PRWEB) April 10, 2009
Three of the nation's top women's health advocacy organizations will discuss women's pelvic wellness as well as female sexuality and intimacy on Saturday morning, April 11th at 9:30 am EST. The three organizations, Women's Health Foundation, Red Hot Mamas, and the National Association for Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health, will be featured on the blogtalkradio show called RealWomen on Health!. The upcoming 30-minute on-line radio show, themed "Top Tips to Feel Sexy at Any Age" will be a talk show open to all women, especially those who enjoy speaking with women's health experts and participating through on-line chatting.
"Women cope with many conditions in mid-life as the body begins to naturally change. We'd like all women to be encouraged and supported with new information and perspectives to help them live life to the fullest. While change is normal and expected, there is much new research that supports women in being fit, sexy and in control of their bodies in a healthy way. All three of our organizations are celebrating the feminine...a time of change, celebration and empowerment through knowledge," says Missy Lavender, Executive Director, the Women's Health Foundation.
"Now with so many women taking on additional job responsibilities related to the changing economy, we want to support women in taking care of themselves. We hope the radio show will help women embrace their femininity despite the stressors," says Kelley Connors, MPH, President of KC Healthcare Communications and RealWomen on Health radio show host.
