Footnote from Rowan

I have known each of the women on my team for an exceptional number of years. The younger members I have known from childhood and into their adult years. Each of my fellow directors have been in my life for over 35 years. This was so important to me, not only for reasons of mutual trust, understanding, respect and reliability, but for the greater success and longevity of the C.I.C.


All members offer me professional and at times, emotional support. Each bring a unique set of skills and perspective, and their ideas inspire me and lead to practical ways to help more women, and to educate everyone in the community on the subject of menopause. 


I am excited to see what we can achieve for the care of menopausal women now, and the generations of women to follow.
