About Women's Health Awareness Day 2016

Women Health Awareness Day 2016

As women, we take care of everyone — our spouses, children, parents, other family members, and even friends. However, we tend to neglect ourselves, especially when it concerns our health. This community event is FREE to the women of Durham, North Carolina and surrounding counties. It provides health awareness, education, information, resources, and on-site health screenings.


The event had the following objectives:

  • Inform and empower women to take responsibility for their health
  • Encourage women to understand their health options
  • Identify services, resources, and products that best help them prevent poor health, which reduces the number of health issues and creates health equity
