Ladies, mark your calendars: May 12-18, 2013 has been designated as National Women’s Health Week, and that means it’s time to focus on YOU. This week is the perfect week to make your health a priority by scheduling your check-up appointments with an Internal Medicine physician, with a Family Practice physician, or with your Gynecologist. In fact, Monday, May 13 is “National Women’s Check-Up Day” – your reminder to make the time to schedule those health care appointments.

National Women’s Health Week, coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health, brings together communities, businesses, government, and health care organizations like Cooper University Health Care to promote the importance of women’s health.
This week also is a great opportunity to learn more about your health and the recommended screening tests that are important for staying healthy. The Ripa Center for Women’s Health and Wellness at Cooper offers a wide variety of health seminars and fitness classes, and is a great resource for information to empower and educate women. Please check out the Ripa Center web page, for information on our upcoming classes and becoming a member (for free!). Also, look for updates on the expansion of our new Ripa Center, scheduled to open in Voorhees in summer 2013!
Please use National Women’s Health Week as a reminder to take care of yourself, and remind your mothers, friends and other important women in your life to make the time to take care of themselves too. Remember, taking good care of yourself is the best thing that you can do for you and your loved ones!
