LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – The official observance of Women’s Health Month doesn’t arrive until May.
There was a preview Tuesday in La Crosse as two women shared their insight into the unique health challenges facing women.
Dr. Margaret Grenisen and Dr. Stephanie Faubion spoke about advances in women’s health and why this topic is so important.
Women’s health centers may be common now, but were revolutionary when introduced in the 90s.
Dr. Grenisen says women have different needs from men, with more known chronic illnesses and psycho-social issues.
Dr. Faubion focused on women’s sexual health and pointed out that this topic is important to health and quality of life overall and is worthy of more attention.
