Celebrate National Women's Health Week! (May. 12th, 2008)

National Women’s Health Week: May 11-17, 2008

The 9th annual National Women’s Health Week kicked off on Mother’s Day, May 11, 2008 and is being celebrated until May 17, 2008. National Women’s Check-Up Day is Monday, May 12, 2008.

National Women’s Health Week empowers women across the country to get healthy by taking action. The nationwide initiative, coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health (OWH), encourages women to make their health a top priority and take simple steps for a longer, healthier and happier life. During the week, families, 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 prevent disease, like:

Engaging in physical activity most days of the week
Making healthy food choices
Visiting a healthcare provider to receive regular check-ups and preventive screenings
Avoiding risky behaviors, like smoking and not wearing a seatbelt
