CHICAGO , IL – Whether it’s eating healthy, getting active or quitting smoking, Illinois Lt. Governor Sheila Simon is encouraging women across Illinois to make their health a priority during National Women’s Health Week.

“By making a couple of small lifestyle changes, women can greatly improve their health,” said Simon. “Simple things like wearing a helmet while biking, getting more sleep or getting a breast cancer screening are easy ways to improve wellness. I hope women throughout the state will celebrate National Women’s Health Week by making their health a priority.”

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), National Women’s Health Week is an observance with the goal of empowering women to make their health a priority. National Women’s Health Week also serves as a time to help women understand what it means to be well. Simon will recognize the week at a Prentice Women’s Hospital luncheon at noon on Thursday.

To promote wellness, the HHS Office on Women’s Health recommends taking steps to improve physical and mental health by visiting health care professionals to receive regular checkups and preventative screenings, getting active and getting healthy.
