This year, National Women’s Health Week 2020 is celebrated during the week of May 10 to May 16. We invite you to join us throughout Women’s Health Week 2020 as we bring attention to the importance of health among mothers, daughters, sisters, girlfriends, etc. At Rosetta, we want to encourage women and girls to make their health a top priority. So, we are sharing four impactful ways that you can get involved in this important week for both women and girls.
1. Educate yourself and others
Learning something new about yourself and your health is an amazing way to spend your time this week. Consider reading books, watching Youtube videos, or speaking with a women’s health professional about these important issues. You can even go the further mile and make this a communal learning session. Get your family or girlfriends together for an in-person or virtual party to spread awareness about the benefits of taking care of ones’ health as women.
2. Get active
One of the best things for your health is moving your body. It doesn’t have to be fancy. You don’t have to become a fitness trainer or a gym rat straight from the beginning. Start by finding an activity that is fun, but will also get your heart rate up. Whether you try that group workout class you’ve been looking at or take a walk around your neighborhood each day, anything helps. This sets the perfect foundation for you to integrate exercise into your schedule beyond Women’s Health Week.
3. Schedule a health screening
If you are looking for an impactful way to spend this National Women’s Health Week, making a health screening appointment is at the top of the list. Taking responsibility for your health begins with preventative care. Common diseases among women such as breast cancer, cervical cancer, and osteoporosis can be prevented as a result of these exams. Some of the popular Women’s Imaging exams we provide at Rosetta Radiology are breast screenings, bone density scans, and Pap smears.
4. Get a well-woman checkup
One of the best things you can do for your health is to schedule a yearly well-woman visit with your doctor. These appointments are a preventative measure to catch health problems while they may be easier to treat. The annual appointment involves screening services, documenting health habits and history, getting a physical exam, and setting health goals for the future.
The most important lesson we want you to take away from this week is that staying on top of your health should be a main priority. National Women’s Health Week is a great opportunity to educate yourself and your loved ones about the value of taking care of yourself as a woman. We hope you will implement these ideas and enjoy a healthy and safe Women’s Health Week.
