The Woman’s College Alumnae Health and Wellness Study attempts to identify the factors that have affected the health and quality of life of the alumnae as they have aged.

We developed a framework to guide the study.  This framework proposes that women’s health is affected by the multiple roles they play over the course of their lives including:

  • mother
  • spouse/partner
  • caregiver
  • employee
  • scholar
  • community volunteer

For this study we investigated the way the women’s roles affected their health and quality of life.
