Women’s Health…Sometimes We Need A Reminder

Although both men and women may share some of the same health concerns, there are some that only affect women, or are more likely to affect women. In addition, certain medical conditions may affect woman differently than men, and so they require unique and individual attention. Sometimes, we need a reminder of how to treat ourselves. Be good to yourselves, ladies!
