Professor Szoeke is also launching her new book
‘Secrets of Women’s Healthy Ageing’

Cassandra Szoeke-professor of medicine, doctor, scientist and clinical researcher-is an expert in women’s health. She is director of the Women’s Healthy Ageing Project at the University of Melbourne and has published hundreds of academic and clinical publications.

 Secrets of Women’s Healthy Ageing draws on the findings of a unique study that has focused on the health of more than four hundred women in their mid-to-late lives. Over the past thirty years a team of international investigators has compiled a remarkable amount of data, aiming to raise awareness of modifiable risk factors in women’s health.

Their findings cover brain, heart and gut health, diet, sleep, exercise, and the benefits of socialising. But importantly, they highlight how the results relate directly to women’s wellbeing. In Secrets of Women’s Healthy Ageing, Cassandra Szoeke shares the wisdom revealed by this comprehensive study, showing how to promote overall wellness and providing the key ingredients for living a long and healthy life.
