The importance of Women's Health

Author(s): Shalonda R. W. Scott

The contributions and achievements of women in this industry are exemplary and these achievements have made significant contributions to healthcare and society in general. These women are trailblazers. They may make contributions as physicians, police officers, firefighters, scientists, entrepreneurs, educators, authors, inventors, engineers, attorneys, astronauts, Vice-Presidents, and in many other ways that create impactful footprints in the world. All these positions require mental clarity, a certain level of energy, and durability. It is also important to ensure that there is a legacy of courageous women who can continue these contributions and achievements for lifetimes to come. One way to help increase the likelihood of this is by creating awareness and addressing health issues that impact women. Women face many health-related issues in their lifetime, some at disproportionate rates. Education, screenings, and regular check-ups can assist with early detection, prevention, and a better quality of life. Some of the most common health issues that women battle includes breast cancer, cervical cancer, and cardiovascular disease.
