National Women's Health Week

Why women should take care of themselves...

National Women’s Health week began this Sunday with celebrating our moms on Mother’s Day. Now, in an effort to encourage healthy living for all of the special women in our lives, the Department of Health and Human Services wants women to take steps to living healthier and happier lives.  
“We know that women are often the ones who make sure everyone — everyone else, that is — in our families are cared for. But too often, we put our own health last,” said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a press release.
She also continued to say that when women take care of themselves first, this will lead to them taking care of their families better. Eating right, exercising, and taking other steps to continually improve health is an everyday and constant effort that should be made.
