On the heels of Mother’s Day, women’s health takes top priority across the country from May 10-16 for National Women’s Health Week. Locally, the Magnolia Project has a week full of activities to celebrate women and encourage good health.
The national effort is organized by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ Office of Women’s Health. The goal is to empower women to make their health a priority and help women understand what steps they can take to improve their health.
Magnolia, a special federally-funded Healthy Start initiative to improve the health and well-being of women during their childbearing years (15–44 years old) in Jacksonville’s Health Zone 1, will be holding the following activities:
- May 11: Community & Project Participants’ Appreciation Day, 11am-2pm
- May 12: Mental Wellness & Beauty, 9am-3pm
- May 13: Healthy Eating, 10am-1:30pm
- May 14: Open House (11am-2pm) & Health Screenings (8:30am-4pm)
All activities will take place at the Magnolia Project, 5300 N. Pearl St., Jacksonville, FL 32208. For more information, contact 904.353.2130 x1005.
