Flavia Franconi has lived several lives. A graduate in Psychiatry, she taught Pharmacology at the University of Sassari. She then served as Health Councillor of Basilicata. But women’s health has always been at the center of her interests. Indeed, she is the “noble mother” of sex-gender medicine in Italy, and today she is also at the center of an international network as chair of the Women20 Health Commission. We asked her to tell us about the differences between the sexes when it comes to aging.
