RED BANK, N.J., Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- HealthyWomen's new Family Health & Wellness Guide provides insights and information on everything from first aid to medication safety to preventive health screenings and caring for aging parents. With women regularly tasked with taking care of the entire family's health in addition to their own, this guide provides a central resource where answers to questions that arise throughout life's ages and stages are easily accessible.

"Getting kids to eat right, keeping track of their vaccinations, helping your parents cope with aging concerns while trying to fit in your own mammogram can be overwhelming for women who are the chief health officers of their families," said Elizabeth Battaglino Cahill, RN, executive director of HealthyWomen, the nation's leading nonprofit health information source for women. "So we developed a new online Family Health & Wellness Guide to assist you in answering those pressing health questions that come up throughout the lifespan and cross over topics from wellness to first aid to disease management."

The guide is broken down by newborns and children; tweens and teens; women in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s+; men in these same age ranges; and seniors 65 years and older. For a full listing of content and resources, check out the guide online at

The guide was developed with the support of Sanofi U.S.
