May 8-14 is National Women’s Health Week, and MACo has rounded up resources for you to share and use to spread awareness.
On May 6, the White House issued a proclamation declaring May 8-14 as National Women’s Health Week, recommitting “to ensuring the health and well-being of women and girls across our Nation.”
During National Women’s Health Week, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health (OWH) is encouraging women and girls to reflect on their individual health needs and take steps to improve their overall health. Whether you continue your current activities or find news ones, now is a great time for all women and girls to focus on better health, especially those with underlying health conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular and respiratory conditions, and women 65 years and older. National Women’s Health Week is also a great time for family, friends, and the greater community to take actions to support women and help them achieve the best health possible.
Here are some of the many resources OWH offers for local governments and anyone interested in recognizing National Women’s Health Week (#NWHW):
