National Women's Health Week 2014

 

National Women's Health Week (NWHW), led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, seeks to bring together communities, businesses, health organizations, and others to promote the importance of women's health, and to empower women to make their health a priority.

Women everywhere pledged to get active, eat healthy, avoid dangerous behaviors and more; and being knowledgeable about breast cancer is another important part of being a well woman. Every year, about 40,000 women will lose their life to breast cancer in the U.S. That's one woman every thirteen minutes.

This year, Susan G. Komen and WWE teamed up for NWHW to make sure that every woman is informed about breast cancer risk, screening, warning signs and healthy lifestyle choices that may even reduce the risk of breast cancer. From May 11-17, Komen, WWE Superstars and WWE Divas shared ways in which women could get involved in their own health. On Thursday, May 15, John Cena invited individuals from across social media to join him in a "virtual workout."
