    Led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health, National Women’s Health Week (NWHW) empowers women to make their health a priority.

    It is also an opportunity to help women understand steps they can take to improve their well-being:
     - Receive regular checkups and preventive screenings
     - Get active, eat healthy, and get enough sleep
     - Pay attention to mental health, including managing stress
     - Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking and texting while driving

    AAHP is a proud supporter of NWHW and works throughout the year to encourage healthy lifestyle choices in Montgomery County. From childbirth and breastfeeding education to health screenings and referrals, we provide a variety of resources that promote women's wellness in our community.
