Men and Women’s Health Awareness 

This year, National Women's Health Week begins on May 8 and National Men's Health Week on June 12. While men and women have the same goal of being healthy, it’s important to acknowledge the different biological and social factors of both genders as well as understanding the differences in order to take necessary steps for a healthier lifestyle.

Fuel for the Future

National Nutrition Month is celebrated every March to raise awareness about the importance of healthy eating and physical activity. This year’s theme is Fuel for the Future. “This message encourages us to think about making food choices that are both good for the future of our health as well as the health of the earth and the environment,” said Susan Jones, RDN, HJAHC resident nutritionist. By making sustainable food choices, we can help reduce our carbon footprint and contribute to a healthier planet.
