Take the National Women’s Health Week Pledge

You may be wondering what’s special about May 8-14? This month, we at Women’s Health Partners encourage women to take the National Women’s Health Week pledge.

What Happens National Women’s Health Week?

Each year starting on Mother’s Day, the U.S. Department of Health and the Office on Women’s Health want to empower women to make their health a priority. For the entire week, women are encouraged to learn more about their health and take a pledge to take at one step towards better health.

Tips for Improving Your Health

When you take the pledge, the Office on Women’s Health recommends specific areas of your health to focus on by age. Follow Women’s Health Partners on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about ways to stay healthy at any age in life. There a few things that anyone can do to improve their health:

At 20 Years oldWomen's Health

You should have your first pap test at 21 if you haven’t already and have a sexually transmitted infection screening if necessary.

At 30 Years old

Be sure to talk with your obgyn if you are planning on getting pregnant. Continue to get an annual well-woman visit during your 30s.

At 40 Years old

Decide with your obgyn when you should have a mammogram, especially if you have certain risk factors. If you’re having perimenopause symptoms, there may be ways to manage these symptoms.

At 50 Years old

During your 50s, it is good to get a lung cancer screening if you are a current or past smoker. It is also time to have a preventative screening for colorectal cancer.

At 60 Years old

Continue to get regular mammograms and osteoporosis screenings during your 60s.

At 70 Years old

Be sure to get a seasonal flu shot, a shingles shot, and a pneumonia shot, as well as others your doctor may recommend.

At 80 Years old

Discuss with your doctor ways to prevent falls, and if you have any problems with your visions or hearing.

 

Contact our Boca Raton or Boynton Beach offices to schedule an appointment for a well-woman visit or if you have any concerns.

Your Safety and Well-being is our Priority

On behalf of all of us at Women’s Health Partners, in these difficult times, we want to thank you for your support and confidence in our practice.

We want you to personally know that our patients’ health and well-being has and always will be our number one priority. This reminder bears repeating in the face of any challenges and especially now, given concerns posed by the corona virus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being and that of our staff. To that end, we want to share some of the steps we are taking:

Furthermore, our staff will be asking several screening questions regarding your health. We ask that you do not enter our office if you, or someone in your family, or someone you recently were in contact with, has exhibited flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, severe muscle aches, shaking chills, or recent loss of taste or smell, or recently diagnosed with COVID19.

In order to help us participate with our social distancing effort, we are asking patients to enter the office without any visitors, including children.

You will also have the option of waiting in your car instead of the waiting room after you have checked in. The front desk staff will call your cell phone when we are ready for you to come in for your visit.
