Women's Health Day 2020

02.06.20

On January 29, providers welcomed 37 clients to our annual Women's Health Day! Attendees enjoyed pizza, relaxing crafts and even a photo booth while getting information on crucial health care like pap smears, HIV/HCV testing and flu shots. One attendee stated, "I plan to talk with my primary care provider about more health questions. I have gained so much knowledge from the Women's Health Day."

Every attendee also left with a homemade sugar scrub. Put your self-care front and center, too, by following the recipes below.
