Taking steps for good health
Women’s Health Week is the biggest week in Australia dedicated to good health and wellbeing for women and girls, and supporting the people who care for them. Celebrating its 10th year, the week is an important reminder for women to put their health first.
According to Janet Michelmore AO, CEO and Patron of Jean Hailes for Women’s Health, so many of us put our own needs aside as we juggle family, jobs and all our other responsibilities day to day.
“To get the most out of life and be able to help others, you need to take care of yourself. We know that it can be hard, which is why we invite you to join us and thousands of women to celebrate Women’s Health Week and find the support, information and connection to focus on good health, one step at a time.”
“Women’s Health Week in 2022 will run from 5-11 September, so make sure you have the date in your diary and start thinking about how you might celebrate the week,” says Ms Michelmore.
Being part of Women’s Health Week is easy. Just sign up to receive free online health tips, articles, podcasts, recipes and more. You may like to run an event or get-together with your friends, networks or colleagues, or join in some of the hundreds of events happening Australia-wide.
