House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session

Subject: Menopause Education for Pennsylvania Women
Many women in Pennsylvania enter perimenopause and menopause without the tools they need to ensure their best health outcomes and without feeling appropriately prepared.  Despite being a natural progression in most women's lives, 32% of surveyed American women reported feeling there was not enough perimenopause and menopause information available to them before they underwent these processes. 
I want to ensure that all Pennsylvania women are prepared for these transitions by creating partnerships between the Department of Health and medical providers to educate women on the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, the biological changes behind the processes and how to talk to family and friends about the processes.  With this legislation, Pennsylvania women can enter their menopausal years with the skills they need to tackle and embrace these changes.
It is time we equip Pennsylvania women with the tools they need to live the healthiest, most fulfilling lives they can.  I urge you to join me in co-sponsoring this legislation that will help all women of our commonwealth. 

Introduced as HB2007
