National Women’s Health Week

Let’s face it ladies – many of us are guilty of it. We take care of everyone else before ourselves and often neglect our own health. But not this week. May 8-14 is National Women’s Health Week and it’s a time to focus on prioritizing our own health – both mental and physical.

A key to staying healthy is preventive care. At Washington Regional Medical Center, we want to help you stay healthy whether that’s through annual check-ups with your doctor or routine screenings to prevent health problems or detect them early. The Norma Lorraine Avignone Women’s Health Center offers a growing range of diagnostic services all focused on women’s needs, including 3D mammography.

Once you’ve scheduled your screening or visit with your doctor, take a look at other ways you can build a foundation of good health for National Women’s Health Week. Here are just a few:

  • Get moving and stay active – Focus on getting your heart beating faster through moderate intensity exercise 20 minutes a day.
  • Nourish from the inside out – Make sure your diet includes important nutrients like vitamin D and calcium.
  • Find healthy ways to manage stress – Spend a few minutes each day doing your favorite calming activities like yoga or listening to music.
