Ministry Door County Medical Center (MDCMC) celebrates Women’s Health Week, May 8-14, with this year’s theme “It’s Your Time!” National Women’s Checkup Day is May 9, and women are encouraged to call for an appointment with their provider.
“Women are often caregivers for their families, putting the needs of spouses, children and parents before their own. We encourage women to take small, manageable steps to make their own health a top priority and lead longer, healthier and happier lives,” says Ann Bretl, Registered Nurse and Nursing Supervisor of the Women’s and Children’s Center at MDCMC.
“We salute the women of our community,” says Bretl. “One way we are doing that is through our expanded Celebrate Door County Women photography exhibit, on display right here at the Women’s Center.” Recently, MDCMC added 15 black and white photos, previously archived, to the exhibit that honors notable Door County women from all walks of life.
Women who visit The Women’s & Children’s Center during Women’s Health Week will receive women’s health information and a flower gift. Call 920.743.5566 for an appointment.
