Who We Are
HealthyWomen (HW) is the nation’s leading independent health information source for women. For more than 20 years, women have been coming to HW for answers to their most pressing and personal health care questions. Through our wide array of online content and print publications, HW provides health information that is original, objective, reviewed and approved by medical experts and reflects the latest advances in evidence-based health research.
HealthyWomen’s long history of providing unbiased and accurate health information has earned the trust of consumers and health care providers as well as nonprofit and corporate partners and the media. HW (formerly the National Women’s Health Resource Center) is widely referenced in print, broadcast and online venues and its Web site, www.HealthyWomen.org, was named the top women’s health Web site by Dr. Mehmet Oz in O, The Oprah Magazine and Good Housekeeping magazine. In addition, HealthyWomen has a strong network of women’s centers, clinics, health care systems and other health-delivery partners across the country through which it distributes its print materials.
How We Succeed in Helping Women
HealthyWomen’s award-winning Web site, www.HealthyWomen.org, was one of the first sites dedicated solely to women’s health and is recognized nationally as a go-to source for trustworthy health information for women. This dynamic, comprehensive resource gives women the latest health information, including news updates, health tips, resources and extensive coverage of hundreds of health topics.
In addition to our online content, HealthyWomen produces print publications in English and Spanish. Our standard publications and specialty guides offer insights, tips and guidance on topics ranging from cervical cancer to skin health to flu. In addition, HW provides subscribers with a monthly, lifestyle-focused e-newsletter and updates on new health programs and resources. The National Women’s Health Report, HealthyWomen’s well-respected analysis of new developments in women’s health, provides an additional online, interactive resource for women.
HealthyWomen excels in conducting nationally recognized public health education campaigns. In partnership with other organizations, media, government agencies and corporations, these campaigns raise awareness of a variety of women’s health conditions.
Insight from Research
HealthyWomen regularly surveys women to learn about their attitudes and behaviors through online polls and our annual Women TALKÒ study. Findings from this research guide development of HealthyWomen content and publications. As part of its public health education campaigns, HW also routinely conducts national research studies to understand women’s knowledge and beliefs about particular health topics.
Building Bridges to Strengthen Health and Raise Awareness
HealthyWomen develops partnerships and affiliations with health care professionals and organizations in the medical community, as well as other organizations dedicated to supporting women’s health, through the establishment of various councils and review committees. These councils include our: Women’s Health Advisory Council, made up of leading health care experts; Women’s Center Advisory Council, made up of leading women’s health centers; Consumer Liaison Council, a group of nearly 20 nationwide consumer organizations; and our Corporate Advisory Board.
