Women: prime candidates for stress-related diseases

200341856-001Whether you’re a successful executive or the one who runs your home, you’re constantly looking for ways to improve your family life and/or business to ensure future prosperity. Why should your personal health be any different? Working women are skilled at making impactful decisions in the board room, court room and family room, but their own health is often pushed to the back burner while they focus on other key priorities in their work and personal lives. Some studies show that female executives don’t even have time to go to the doctor. A survey of approximately 400 chief financial officers (CFO) released earlier this year by research firm East & Partners, found most male respondents—77 percent—had visited their doctor in the past year; only 34.8 percent of women had seen their doctor. More astounding: 43.2 percent of female CFOs couldn’t recall their last doctor appointment.

Women in Health Care, a 10-year study of 22,000 female health care professionals at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital—the first of its kind—spells out the risk: women with high job strain had a 38 percent higher risk of experiencing a “cardiovascular event” than women with low job strain, and a 70 percent higher chance of a heart attack.

This month as we launch our Women’s Executive Health & Wellness Program, we encourage all women, executives and non-executives, to dedicate one day in the coming year to your physical and mental health. Our efficient, personalized program is tailored to the time-pressed needs of women. And considering that women executives are prime candidates for stress-related diseases, there is no better time than now.

The Women’s Executive Health & Wellness Program offers a comprehensive physical and medical history, diagnostic testing, and in-depth physician consultations with a team of integrated medical professionals—all in one day—perfect for the busiest women. This unique program also includes genetic, nutrition, behavioral health/stress management, and fitness consultations. And depending on your stage of life, you’ll receive a consultation in gynecology, perimenopause, menopause, bone health, or fertility. You’ll also get to choose two additional consultations that best meet your individual health needs. Your choices include:

  • Hormone replacement
  • High-risk breast cancer
  • Skin care
  • Dermatology
  • Plastics
  • Weight management
  • Sexual health
  • Sleep evaluation

At the end of the day, you’ll receive a detailed report outlining the results of your diagnostic testing and an overall health assessment. You’ll also receive a personalized plan complete with recommendations on how to manage and optimize your health. You’d be hard-pressed to find another program like it, so take advantage while you can. For additional information or to schedule an appointment, please call (513) 475-UC4U.
