Focussing on a patient’s wellness rather than just their illness could be more effective in targeting disease prevention in older women, according to the keynote speaker at the North American Menopause Society’s (NAMS 2020) Annual Virtual Meeting.

Dr James Hill (PhD), director of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Nutrition Research Centre, says considering wellness and ways to promote physical activity, healthy eating and other healthy lifestyle habits could be more effective than targeting disease.
