Say Yes! to your health this National Women’s Health Week by taking steps toward a healthier you.
Led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office on Women’s Health (OWH), National Women’s Health Week reminds women to take simple, manageable steps to improve their overall well-being. HHS OWH encourages women to:
* Visit a doctor or nurse for a well-woman visit (checkup) and preventive screenings. All Fordland Clinic and Tri-Lakes Community Health Center providers are currently accepting new patients.
* Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
* Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, texting while driving, and not wearing a seatbelt or bicycle helmet.
As women age, their health needs change. Whether you’re in your 20s or 90s, HHS OWH offers specific steps you can take toward a healthier you at every age. Decide that today is the day to take at least one step for better health, because you’re worth the investment!
