For those who want to live independently as long as possible and maybe be capable of helping a family member in need, it's important to stay healthy. During National Women's Health Week, May 14 -20, 2017, women of all ages are encouraged to get a health check up. There is no perfect age for optimum health, so visit the Office on Women's Health website to find out what you can do to feel great!
