How to show the women in your life a little love this week …


May 11-17 is National Women’s Health Week, an observance led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health. While there are many important health issues, a key focus of should always be on heart health. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women and nearly one in three American women have high blood pressure. Why not show a little love for your mom, your wife, your sisters or your women friends by encouraging them to schedule a Well Woman visit to get a checkup and to learn more about heart risk? For more on women and heart disease, check out The Heart Truth, a program of the National Institutes of Health. There are many great resources and tools available – why not share some of these important messages and excellent materials with the women in your lives – and also on social media!
