As National Women's Health Week comes to a close, Sarasota Memorial encourages women to take steps to improve their health: Visit a doctor or nurse for a well-woman visit (checkup) and preventive screenings. Get active. Eat healthy. Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress. Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, texting while driving, and not wearing a seat belt or bicycle helmet.
