Some of Next Avenue's most-read health content has focused on the challenges of menopause. It's a topic that's not discussed nearly enough, but either affects each of us or someone we love. In today's newsletter, a smart neuroscientist shares how some negative aspects of hormonal and metabolic shifts can be alleviated.

Has the pandemic cancelled your favorite adult learning opportunities — or maybe inspired you to pursue them? For you, we offer
an abundance of resources from great organizations that are stepping up to offer virtual classes and distance learning opportunities.

We also share important information about how the pandemic is making food insecurity a very real worry for millions of families and how COVID-19 is making some people rethink their living wills. All that and more, just a scroll away.

Thank you for reading.
