Women's Health Week

5-9 September, 2016

The Jean Hailes Women's Health Week is a week to focus on your health, learn more and take action. 


The theme of this year's Women's Health Week is:

Am I normal?

A question, we know, every woman at some stage asks herself, whether it's about weight, body image, mental health or sex. So let's get rid of the elephant in the room and start talking about these topics and more. Get the facts during the week from 5-9 September.

What's normal when it comes to women's health?

Jean Hailes kicked off the week with our first ever Women's Health Week webcast 'What's normal when it comes to women's health'. You can watch the recorded version as Jean Hailes experts delve into the topics of weight management, body image, anxiety, worry and sex. The webcast is 55 minutes long.
