NATIONAL WOMEN’S CHECKUP DAY

Led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health and as part of National Women’s Health Week, May 12, 2014 is National Women’s Checkup Day.

The goal of National Women’s Checkup Day 2014 leaders is to encourage all women to schedule an annual well-woman visit.

Yearly well-woman visits are important and should include discussions of your health habits and family history, setting health goals and scheduling or receiving screenings or necessary exams.  Screening would include blood pressure, cholesterol, cervical cancer and others.
