Women's Health

Specialized health care for women

Women comprise more than one-half of the U.S. population and are at the heart of family health care. A woman's health is affected by all of the factors that touch her life — her family, relationships, work environment, spiritual values and community. Research over the last two decades has supported the fact that men and women respond differently to wellness and disease, and that gender-focused health assessments, education and interventions help everyone to be as healthy as possible.
