About Women's Health Awareness Day
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 was FREE to the women of Durham, North Carolina and surrounding counties. It provided health awareness, education, information, resources, and on-site health screenings.
In this WTVD channel 11 interview, Joan Packenham, Ph.D. discusses the programs and services available at the 2017 event.
- 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
