The 12th annual National Women's Health Week will kick off on Mother's Day, May 8, and will be celebrated until May 14. The theme is "It's Your Time." This weeklong health observance empowers women across the country to make their health a top priority and take simple steps for a longer, healthier, and happier life.

In observance of Women's Health Week, several local organizations have planned an event to remind women in Marion and Washington counties just how important it is to take time out for their health. The Washington County Cancer Coalition, along with Spring View Hospital, Marion and Washington County health departments, and Kentucky Cancer Program will be hosting a Women's Cancer Awareness Event. The program will be held at Spring View Hospital on Thursday, May 12, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Several speakers will be on hand to discuss various women's health topics and to answer questions from audience members. In addition to the panel of guest speakers, refreshments will be served and several door prizes will be given away.
