National Women's Health Week serves as a reminder to all women and girls to make your health a priority and take care of yourselves. It is extremely important for all women, especially those with underlying health conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular and respiratory conditions, and women 65 years and older, to take care of your health now. CURE is here for you, this week and all year long!
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the US but is highly treatable if detected early! The AAD recommends regular self-exams using the ABCDE's of melanoma and seeing a dermatologist annually. As we head into sun season, take steps to protect your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays and reduce your risk:
- Seek shade
- Wear sun-protective clothing
- Apply sunscreen every 2 hours
Happy Earth Day! This day and everyday, we can all find one small act we can do to restore our Earth. Plant a tree, pick up some litter, or buy some Earth-Friendly products. And of course - REDUSE, REUSE, RECYCLE!
Created by the American Heart Association as a way to help improve health of Americans everywhere, National Move Month is aimed at getting more of us to hit 10,000 steps everyday or, even better, to hit that 20-minutes of aerobic exercise mark everyday.
