National Women's Health Week happens every May, kicking off on Mother's Day.
According to the Office of Women's Health, "The week serves as a reminder for women to make their health a priority and build positive health habits for life."
In that spirit, we put together a Women's Health Week Toolkit with urology-related content that would be of interest to women. Share with the special women in your life, young and old!
