The president has issued a proclamation declaring this week “Women’s Health Week.” In an official press release, directives were outlined that may help “break existing barriers” and “improve the health of American women for generations to come.”
Some of those steps include:
- Lead a healthy life and set an example for young people.
- Take advantage of preventive care with routine screenings and checkups.
- Practice simple everyday activities like using sunscreen, exercising regularly, and eating healthy.
- Emphasize the role of women in promoting the vitality of our children and communities.
Online resources were also cited for promoting the goals of women’s health week, including the Whitehouse Council on Women and Girls, womenshealth.gov, and girlshealth.gov.
