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 is kicking off the week with our first ever Women's Health Week webcast on
Monday, 5 September from 7:30pm – 8:30pm AEST.
