National Women’s Health Week is celebrated each May as a week long health observance to promote and empower women to make their health a priority. The week kicks off with the National Women’s Check-up Day encouraging women to improve their physical and mental health and lower their risk for diseases by visiting a health care professional to receive regular checkups and preventative screenings.
In celebration of National Women’s Health Week, the PHMC Center for Data Innovation and the Community Health Data Base (CHDB) are highlighting data from the 2012 Household Health Survey on the health of women, 18 years or older. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Household Health Survey is administered by telephone in more than 10,000 households in the SEPA region, including Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties. Every two years, this survey collects key health information on SEPA residents to support health programs across the five county area.
