National Women’s Check Up Day!

Monday, May 13th marks National Women’s Check Up Day!

2-women4This nationwide effort, coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health encourages women to call and visit health care professionals to schedule and receive checkups; and promotes regular checkups as vital to the early detection of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, mental health illnesses, sexually transmitted infections, and other conditions.

How can I participate in National Women’s Check Up Day?

  • Contacting your current doctor to schedule a checkup or screening
  • Discussing which screenings and tests are right for you and when and how often you should have them.
  • Check out the preventive health screenings available with the Affordable Care Act
  • Take the Check-up Day Pledge and pledge to schedule at least one preventive health screening during May 2013.
