National Women’s Health Week (NWHW) is a week-long health observance led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health (OWH). The Obesity Medicine Association is proud to partner with them and support women. This week — May 10-16, 2020 — serves as a reminder for women and girls to make their health a priority and take care of themselves, especially during the COVID-19 outbreak. We want all women and girls, especially those with underlying health conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular and respiratory conditions, and women 65 years and older, to pay close attention to their physical and mental health and take steps to protect them. Having underlying or chronic health conditions can increase the risk of illness, including COVID-19.
