Women's Health Week - "It's Your Time"

The 12th annual observance of National Women's Health Week from Mother's Day (May 8) through May 14, 2011 marks an important reminder to all women of all ages to take care of themselves. This year’s theme is "It's Your Time." Coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, this weeklong health observance empowers women across the country to make their health a top priority and take simple steps for a longer, healthier, and happier life.

We encourage you incorporate healthy choices in your every day living, including:

  • Getting at least 2.5 hours of moderate physical activity, 1.25 hours of vigorous physical activity (or a combination of both) each week.
  • Eating a nutritious diet.
  • Scheduling and keeping your regular checkups and preventive screenings. (We can help you with that!  Please contact us to schedule the appropriate screening appointments, including your annual exam, mammogram, etc.!)
  • Avoiding risky behaviors, such as smoking and not wearing a seatbelt.
  • Paying attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.

We are here to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle that incorporates proper gynecological care!  Access our Routine Care page for additional information! 

For additional resources from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office on Women's Health, visit their website dedicated to National Women's Health Week, and celebrate this week with the women in your life!
