Women often serve as caregivers for their loved ones, putting the needs of their spouses, partners, children and parents before their own. As a result, women’s health and well-being can become secondary.
The 14th annual National Women’s Health Week kicked off yesterday—Mother’s Day—and runs through Saturday, May 18. Coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health, this observance empowers women to make health a priority and encourages them to improve their mental and physical health.
Support the women you know—your mother, sister, aunt, daughter and friend—and help them take steps toward longer, healthier, happier lives.
