An Introduction to the Guide to Women’s Health

With the fast pace of life, it can be difficult for many of us to find the time to take proper care of ourselves. Although there is a plethora of health-related information available on the Web and in the media, it is often challenging to identify helpful and precise information on which to base our healthcare decisions.

Several years ago, the Men’s Health Initiative created a Guide to Men’s Health that has been very well-received. Consequently, it seemed fitting to proceed with a women’s version of the Guide to provide brief and accurate information for the women in our community.

Contained in this booklet is information ranging from nutrition, alternative medicine, cancer screening and treatment options to treatment of urinary incontinence and pelvic prolapse. The chapters are brief, but are designed to provide core information to keep you and the women in your life updated on fundamental issues that may affect their overall health and well being.

We hope you find this Guide to be helpful and would welcome any feedback should there be other topics that might be useful!
