“A woman’s wellbeing is influenced by so many things. Our environments are not the same as our mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers. Each woman has her own story. From infancy to puberty, reproductive life to menopause, there are many factors that influence our health. Every woman is unique in her health care needs.”
