Hadassah Celebrates National Women’s Health Week

National Women’s Health Week is celebrated every year in May to encourage women and girls to prioritize their health and make the choices that are right for them when it comes to their well-being. While it’s only one week, this year on May 14-20, Hadassah makes women’s health a priority all year long. Advancing women’s health through education, advocacy and research is a cornerstone of Hadassah’s mission.

From helping to advance federal protections for reproductive freedom and championing access to infertility care, to leading the way with groundbreaking research and treatments and educating people about women’s health, Hadassah and the Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO) are saving lives.
