It’s National Women’s Health Week, the annual event in which millions of women take steps to improve their health. The week serves as a reminder for women to make health a priority and build positive health habits for life. As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, now is more fitting than ever to consider the health and well-being of all women, and what we can do to make positive and lasting changes today.
