#HealthTalk: National Women's Health Week

Women’s Health Week is a national effort to raise awareness about proactive steps women can take to improve their health. We hosted a Twitter chat to inform women on how to make health a priority. Here are the highlights.


  1. Q1: What are some common chronic diseases that women are at risk for today?

  2. Q2: How does race have an impact on risk factors? Do African American, Asian, and Latina women have certain risk factors?
  3. Q3: Women are the gatekeepers of health for their families, but they put their health last. How can they be more proactive?
  4. Q4: What are some routine screenings that women in their 20s and 30s should get versus women in their 40s, 50s, and 60s?
