Join Women’s Philanthropy of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh and the Jewish Women’s Foundation for a one-hour interactive zoom session led by the book’s acclaimed physician-author, Dr. Vivien Brown.

A Passionate Advocate for Women’s Health

A Womans Guide to Healthy AgingDr. Vivien Brown is Vice President, North America of the Medical Women International Association, past President of the Federation of Medical Women of Canada, Former Chair of the Consumer Education Committee for the North American Menopause Society, and board member of the Women’s Brain Health Initiative.

The internet is flooded with tips about how to look younger, but what women of a certain age really need is an expert’s guide to healthy aging. A Woman’s Guide to Healthy Aging covers the top seven issues Dr. Brown believes are most important: nutrition, exercise and sleep, brain health, immunization and disease prevention, menopause, cardiac health, and osteoporosis.

Sweeping aside the myths and sales tricks that plague women every day, Dr. Brown’s session will offer sensible advice based on the latest scientific evidence.

The first 50 women to register will receive a free copy of A Woman’s Guide to Healthy Aging. 

This is a free event open to all women donors who give to the Pittsburgh Federation’s Community Campaign.
