Did you know that over half of women age 50 and older experience issues with bladder or bowel control at some time in their lives? These symptoms should not be considered a normal part of aging or blamed on being a woman. The Franklin Health Department is offering Mind Over Matter: Healthy Bowels Healthy Bladder, a workshop developed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health. The sessions are designed to give women the tools they need to take control of their bladder and bowel symptoms.

This small group workshop consists of three 2-hour sessions that meet every other week. It provides information and group activities along with simple exercises and dietary changes to practice at home. Even if you don’t have leakage symptoms now, it’s never too early or too late to learn at-home techniques and exercises to help prevent or improve symptoms.
