Celebrate Women's Health Week


Women often serve as caregivers for their families, putting the needs of their spouses, partners, children, and parents before their own. As a result, women's health and well-being becomes secondary. As a community, we have a responsibility to support the important women we know and do everything we can to help them take steps for longer, healthier, happier lives.

This year, Buncombe County Health and Human Services, Asheville Buncombe Institute of Parity Achievement (ABIPA) along with local community partners will be celebrating National Women’s Health Week by hosting “Celebrate HER, a Women’s Health Day” on Saturday, May 18, 2013. The event will be held from 1 - 5 p.m. at the Pisgah View Community Center. 

The day is designed to give the community and individuals a better understanding of the health issues facing women and community solutions that are available. Organizations large and small will participate in the event, which will include free screening/assessment services, interactive activities, educational materials, and much more.

  • Hula hoop demos
  • Zumba
  • Line Dancing
  • Hand massages
  • Healthy food demos

Come join us as we celebrate and raise awareness about Women’s health and the importance of making health a priority.
