Women play a vital role in the health of our nation. They make the health care decisions for their families and seek medical care more often than do men. They want to partner with their healthcare providers to make decisions, prevent, and jointly care for health problems. Women also are taking advantage of the Internet to search for health information, join support groups, and communicate with their health care providers.

Now you can use the valuable resources and tools in this section of our web site to strengthen your link to the world of women's health. You can:

  • empower your female patients with helpful, reliable information
  • keep handy informational tools at your fingertips, like links to medical dictionaries and women-specific medical journals
  • keep in touch with women-specific health conferences and events, and with what other health care professionals are saying about their professions and women's health
  • learn about aspects of women's health that you may not already be involved in, like immigrant women's health concerns or public health initiatives.
