National Women's Health Week

National Women's Health Week, May 9–15, 2021

National Women's Health Week (NWHW) serves as a reminder to women to make their health a priority and build positive health habits for life. It is also a reminder to clinicians and biomedical researchers to consider sex/gender in the diagnosis and treatment of disease and during all stages of biomedical research. ORWH is committed to assisting women, clinicians, and researchers on the journey to better health for women. Throughout the year, the Office will provide tools and resources for helping women to reach their full health potential. We encourage visitors to this site to take the opportunity to review all of the materials below and support NWHW and ORWH's critical mission to improve the health of women.
