The goal of National Women’s Checkup Day is to encourage women to visit a health care professional to receive preventive services and screenings.
The 12th annual National Women’s Checkup Day is today, Monday, May 12, 2014, during National Women’s Health Week.
All women should participate in National Women’s Checkup Day including moms, aunts, sisters, spouses, and best friends.
National Women’s Checkup day provides a perfect opportunity to get the preventative care you, or women in your life, needs. Screenings can find disease early, making them easier to treat. Screenings can also identify other problems and help lower the risk for many conditions.

- Schedule a visit with your health care provider.
- Learn what screenings you need.
- Encourage the women in your life to participate.
