May Is Women’s Health Month
In celebration of National Women’s Health Month, we’d like to take a moment to remind women of all ages to make all aspects of their well-being a top priority and to take steps to improve their health. Older women have distinct health issues and prioritizing health has never been more important. Many people delayed or postponed healthcare during the height of the Covid pandemic, and the backlog that resulted is still causing delays in scheduling medical office visits and procedures. Pandemic restrictions on daily living also had and continue to have a profound effect on mental and physical health. This month, take action to achieve the best health possible.

- Ask your healthcare professional about bone density screenings and osteoporosis prevention
