National Women’s Health Week: Make your health a priority

Schedule a checkup today

female doctor with patientI know what you’re thinking…“I don’t have time to go to the doctor when I’m sick, let alone when I’m feeling fine.” But there are many serious conditions that don’t always leave you feeling completely under the weather. Screenings and regular checkups are vital to the early detection of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, mental health, sexually transmitted diseases, and a number of other women’s health concerns. Screening tests, such as a mammogram, Pap, sexual health and bone density can find diseases early, when they are easier to treat. And some women need certain screening tests earlier or more often than other women.

This May, in honor of National Women’s Health Week and National Women’s Checkup Day, May 12, I felt this was the perfect time to encourage you to take manageable steps to improving your health. After all, what greater gift can you give yourself and those you love?

You can do it all in one day
We know you’re busy and we want to make taking care of yourself easy. Instead of having to remember when you’re due for your next cholesterol test, mammogram, sexual health or bone health screening, why not schedule it all in one day? It’s convenient and gives you peace of mind for the rest of the year. For the busy woman executive we also offer a full day Executive Health program.

Take control of your health

Checkups and screenings are important, but there many other easy things you can do to stay healthy year round. I encourage all women to:

  • get active,
  • eat healthy,
  • pay attention to your stress levels, and
  • get enough sleep.

To schedule your Women’s Checkup Day, please call (513) 475-UC4U.
