National Women’s Health Week 2013

The 14th annual National Women’s Health Week officially kicked off Mother’s Day. The nationally recognized week started by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health is a call to women of all ages to make health a priority.

Women are encouraged to attend regular checkups, make healthier food choices, get adequate exercise, become aware of their own mental health and avoid unhealthy behaviors such as excessive alcohol consumption and smoking.

The Healthy Start Coalition understands the impact women’s health has on all members of the community.

Stay tuned to the Coalition blog for health information throughout the week for women, men and healthcare professionals.
