Health Focus for January 2012

Each month there are any number of health observances. This month we've chosen three to bring to your attention.

1) National Glaucoma Awareness Month - For more information on glaucoma contact Prevent Blindness America.

2) Thyroid Awareness Month - Learn more about thyroid awareness or contact Karen Pan at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists for educational materials.

Especially for Women
3) Cervical Health Awareness Month - Sponsored by the National Cervical Cancer Coalition. Encourage the women in your life to get their Pap smear. Women in Texas can contact the Texas Department of State Health Services to find out if they are eligible for free or low-cost exams

Also, be sure to mark February 1st and 3rd on your calendars as TWU will be Going Red to raise awareness about women's heart health!
