Whether you’re a man, woman or child, Women’s Healthcare Month should be important to you. After all, we can all think of at least one amazing woman in our life. The June awareness initiative aims to spread the word about common health issues for women.
What types of information can you help share? Numbers don’t lie, so teaching people about statistics in relation to women’s health is a great start.
- According to Women’s Health Magazine, young women say they’re more informed about popular music (33%) than reproductive health care (15%).
- The World Health Organization reports that the leading cancer killer among women between the ages of 20 and 59 in high-income countries is breast cancer.
- Women may have very different symptoms of heart disease than men, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
You can help protect the women in your life this June by spreading information like the statistics listed above via social media, blogs and even word-of-mouth. Printing valuable resources onto giveaways is a smart idea if you’re holding a Women’s Healthcare Month event.
What will you do to get involved this June?
