National Women's Health Week
What is National Women's Health Week?
National Women's Health Week is a weeklong health observance coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office on Women's Health (OWH).
National Women's Health Week empowers women to make their health a top priority. With the theme "It's Your Time," the nationwide initiative encourages women to take simple steps for a longer, healthier, and happier life.
During National Women's Health Week, communities, businesses, government, health organizations, and other groups work together to educate women about steps they can take to improve their physical and mental health and lower their risks of certain diseases.
National Women's Checkup Day is May 11.
If you are overdue, HAP encourages you to make an appointment to visit your health care professional to receive or schedule a checkup
This week also kicks off the 8-week WOMAN Challenge.
Thousands of women across the country will embark on an 8-week physical activity challenge for better health. They will be part of the WOMAN Challenge: Women and girls Out Moving Across the Nation.
