Safeguard women's health. Things you can do at home for Women’s Health Week.

Wednesday, May 13 2020

To feel pride in Hadassah and hope for the future, take a look at the incredible ways our members are making an impact in the face of COVID-19. We are out there helping to heal the world in any way we can.

Part of Hadassah's ongoing healing work is our longstanding commitment to women's health. This week is National Women's Health Week, and Hadassah is once again a proud national supporter. Even from home, you can fight for women's health and make your voice heard. Advocate for nurses, physicians, and allied health professionals, and improve the quality of medical research for all.
