National Women’s Health Week

The 18th annual National Women’s Health Week kicked off on Mother’s Day, May 14, and is celebrated through May 20, 2017. National Women’s Health Week is an observance led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health. The goal is to empower women to make their health a priority. The week also serves as a time to encourage women to take steps to improve their health.
