While women are the ‘Chief Healthcare Officers’ of their households, they don’t always prioritize their own health. In fact, over 60% of women admit that they procrastinate on their health, often because they spend more time managing the health of others in their family. Meanwhile, during the global pandemic, over 33% of women with major health issues (i.e. heart disease, diabetes) admit to delaying or canceling their doctor appointments or screenings.1
Understanding the tremendous pressure women have in today’s fast-paced society, and the dismal consequences of neglecting one’s health, the Know Where to Go, Know What to Do coalition was created to help women identify reputable and mission-driven organizations that provide resources, support, and education to simplify their path to greater health.
American Bone Health is proud to partner together with like-minded entities to amplify the coalition’s mission of providing women with the tools and resources that will help them succeed in all matters of health. As a participant in this coalition, American Bone Health has the opportunity to provide more resources to the women within its community, while inheriting a powerful platform to share its offerings with those outside of their community. This will allows allowing more women to discover the helpful resources that American Bone Health has to offer.
“There is so much health information available online that it can be overwhelming. American Bone Health is proud to be part of the Know Where to Go, Know What to Do coalition because it points women to member organizations that provide resources women can trust for reliable information,” said Cheryl Hostinak, executive director of American Bone Health. “We also know that many people don’t realize how important their bones are to their overall health, so being a part of this coalition gives us a chance to reach more women with information they need to support their busy lifestyles.”
Women can visit Know Where to Go, Know What To Do to find hospitals that meet the highest standards based on robust criteria that include relevant clinical performance, patient satisfaction and appropriate accreditations, and to find educational, financial and emotional support from trusted organizations on a variety of health conditions such as Bone Health, Breast Cancer, Celiac Disease, Eating Disorders, Fertility, Fibroids, Headaches, Infant Loss, Kidney Disease, Lymphedema, Obesity, Skin Cancer, Sleep Health and more.
Participating organizations like American Bone Health recognize the importance of helping women prioritize their health, and the impact of collaboration to bring about great change. As such, this coalition graciously unites dedicated and progressive organizations in the joint mission to educate and empower women.
