Hillary Clinton Discusses Health Care for Women Over 40 in Exclusive Interview with Women's Voices for Change
Date:10/25/2007

NEW YORK, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Reaching out to a key demographic, Sen. Hillary Clinton answered questions about her health care plan posed by Women's Voices for Change, the New York-based group that advocates for women over 40 with a focus on women's health and well-being in the menopause years. The interview and an op-ed by Clinton are available at http://www.WomensVoicesForChange.org.

"Right now, the uninsured are carrying a heavy burden in this country, and older women bear a disproportionate share of that burden. About 13 percent of women age 55-64 are without health insurance," says Clinton.

The candidate, who rolled out her new health plan several weeks ago, has made health care a cornerstone of her campaign. In the interview, she addresses the specific concerns of women over 40.

Elsewhere, the group asks Clinton about her main concerns as a woman about to turn 60 herself.

"Our best allies are friends and family who have been through the system themselves and as I get older, fortunately or not, more and more of my friends have those experiences to share. Women need to talk to each other about the importance of preventive screenings, regular check-ups, and healthcare choices -- no woman should lack the care she needs simply because she didn't know she had the option," she says.

Founded in 2005 and led by a group of prominent doctors, writers and financial leaders, WVFC aims to revolutionize attitudes toward women over 40 and to celebrate menopause as a time of renewal and reinvention for the millions of American women currently in this phase of life. WVFC covers politics, media, health and current events in its daily blog and publishes essays and poetry by renowned and emerging writers.
