National Women's Health Week - Pledge, Challenge and Screen


National Women's Health Week is a week long health observance coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office on Women's Health. It brings together communities, businesses, government, health organizations, and other groups in an effort to promote women's health and its importance. It also empowers women to make their health a priority and encourages them to take steps to improve their physical and mental health and lower their risks of certain diseases:
