LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – The second Monday in May is National Women’s Checkup Day. A day for women to make their health a priority.
The day was created by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to remind women to take care of themselves and their health. One of the ways to do that is by scheduling appointments with your health care providers.
Gundersen Health System Dr. Kimberly Lansing, MD, PhD talked about some of the proper screenings and exams women should be getting.
Checking your blood pressure is important. You can have high blood pressure and not necessarily know it because it doesn’t really have symptoms.
The CDC said the best thing to do is see your primary care provider. Because you could find a problem before it starts.
National Women’s Checkup Day is celebrated annually on the second Monday of May as part of National Women’s Health Week. For more information visit this website.
