National Women’s Checkup Day is Monday, May 14

National Women's Health Week is a nationwide initiative that calls attention to the importance of women's health. St. Luke’s Health System is encouraging women across its service area to schedule a regular checkup on Monday, May 14, (National Women’s Health Checkup Day) if it has been more than a year since their last visit.

Once women have scheduled their appointment, they can visit www.stlukesonline.org to register to win fun prizes, including Boise Music Festival concert tickets, an overnight stay at Cactus Pete’s and much more!

Regular checkups provide women of all ages with the routine care and screening tests that can help lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and other serious diseases.
