Many of the top women’s health risks, including heart disease, obesity and diabetes, are often preventable. That’s why it’s so important to be proactive when it comes to your health.
Women's health programs in the Public Health Division work to ensure all women in Oregon have the necessary knowledge, resources and opportunities to optimize their mental and physical health. We assess the health and health needs of Oregon women across the lifespan, and promote programs that increase awareness of women's health issues among the public, researchers, educators and health care professionals.
