A Week For Women’s Health

What are you doing the week of May 11–17? How about spending some time addressing women’s health?

That will be National Women’s Health Week, an observance led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health. The goal is to empower women to make their health a priority and take steps to improve both their physical and mental health, such as:

• Visit a health care professional for regular checkups and preventive screenings.

• Get active.

• Eat healthy.

• Get adequate sleep.

• Manage stress.

• Avoid unhealthy behaviors—smoking, texting while driving, not wearing a seatbelt or bicycle helmet.
