May 14 - 20, 2017

The US Department of Health and Human Services has chosen the week of Mother's Day to celebrate National Women's Health Week.  This is a chance for women everywhere to become empowered to take the necessary steps to improve their health.

  • Pap, HPV, mammography, osteoporosis, hepatitis, lung and colon cancer, blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes.
  • Getting active, eating healthy, and maintaining a healthy weight.
