We all know that women spend time year round caring for their families, their spouses, and even their friends
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) May 12, 2008
"We all know that women spend time year round caring for their families, their spouses, and even their friends," said Val Jones, M.D., senior medical director of Revolution Health. "We are focusing on women—moms and moms-to-be— to remind them not to neglect their own health and encourage them to start on the path to healthier living."
Each participating nonprofit organization in the Women's Health Expo will host a "health booth" with information, stories and resources about a range of conditions and issues that affect women. In addition, the Women's Health Expo will feature articles on women's health issues, tools to help track nutrition, physical activity, medications and mood, and a robust online community discussion of how to tackle some of the most pressing health challenges women face. To provide further assistance, RevolutionHealth.com features expert-led groups to help women meet health and wellness goals, such as losing weight, quitting smoking, decreasing stress and improving their relationships. The Women's Health Expo runs through the end of May.
Each time a visitor to the Women's Health Expo clicks onto a health booth, Revolution Health will make a donation to the nonprofit, for a total of up to $10,000. Nonprofit organizations participating in the Women's Health Expo are:
