In the Women’s Health Initiative, we are passionate about women's health topics. We are a Patient Care initiative that focuses on educating the public on issues pertaining to women’s health and expanding women's access to health care. We speak to patients on many topics including HPV vaccines, birth control, pregnancy, osteoporosis, and preventative cancer screenings. We are excited about the new year and will present our information at as many health fairs as possible. This year we plan to partner with other patient care teams to provide more education on vaccines and how to talk to patients about them. We also are planning a recurrent tampon drive that will distribute feminine hygiene products to local women’s and homeless shelters and creating new handouts focused on women’s health issues. We are looking for volunteers who are excited about women's health and welcome all new ideas to help grow our operation!
