NEW YORK, May 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of Women's Health Month in May, Fidelis Care announced today its Being Healthy is BeYOUtiful initiative, focused on the importance of empowering women to make their health a priority. The program will feature a Facebook Live series, community events across New York State, and special information and resources focused on key health topics for women.
"Making their health a priority is one of the most important things women can do for themselves and their loved ones," said Fidelis Care Medical Director and Cardiologist Dr. Camille Pearte. "Being Healthy is BeYOUtiful is a wonderful platform to support women as they take their own approach to better health."
From healthy eating to regular exercise to annual checkups, there are many areas where women can focus on being proactive in taking care of their health and wellness. Mental health is just as important as physical health, particularly as women typically juggle many roles and responsibilities.
