March is Women’s History Month and what an excellent time to focus on health care issues affecting women. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) have conducted research, implemented programs, and developed strategies to help women live healthier lives. These activities have helped address a variety of health issues, including cancer, heart disease, HIV/AIDS, pregnancy, smoking, violence, workplace safety and more. For details on the research that has been conducted go to the CDC website at: www.cdc.gov/women/observances/
Also, March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and March 10 is Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.
