May 12-18 is National Woman’s Health Week (NWHW). NWHW is led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Woman’s Health (OWH) and aims to remind women to make their health a priority and build positive health habits for life.

As part of the observance, OWH reminds women to:

  • Visit a doctor or nurse for a well-woman checkup, preventive screenings, and vaccines.
  • Get active.
  • Eat healthy.
  • Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
  • Practice safe behaviors, such as quitting smoking, not texting while driving, and taking steps to protect yourself from sexually transmitted infections.

Visit the Office of Women’s Health web page to learn more about NWHW and activities to participate in to take steps toward a healthier life.
