From:   About National Women’s Health Week

“National Women’s Health Week is a weeklong health observance coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health (OWH). National Women’s Health Week empowers women to make their health a top priority. With the theme “It’s Your Time,” the nationwide initiative encourages women to take simple steps for a longer, healthier, and happier life.”

For those interested, here is how to send a National Women’s Health Week E-card.

The US federal agency womenshealth.gov has compiled a list of free, online,  related health resources for women which includes these areas: 
General Resources, Cancer, Cardiovascular Health, Diabetes, Lupus, Menopause, and Smoking.  
An interactive health screening tool is also available.
