Heart Disease: What Women Don’t Know (Comic Strip for Heart Disease)

Heart disease is the leading killer of women in the U.S. Our engaging and creative comic strip, a learning tool trending within the health space, walks women through a conversation between a mother and daughter talking about heart health in an everyday setting. We brought the information to our readers in a digestible, easy to follow way in hopes that we can prevent future heart-related deaths among women.

Not sure what to expect during your first mammogram? Watch this video to find out.
Spoiler alert: It’s true. They do flatten your breasts like a pancake, but getting a mammogram is worth it because they’re an important screening tool for breast cancer and early detection can save your life.
Many women fear things related to their health because they don’t know what to expect. They’re apprehensive about what’s going to happen and how it’s going to happen. Our goal with creating this digitally innovative video was to give women a resource to learn about what exactly a mammogram will be like so they can dismiss their fears and make smart choices for their health, like getting an annual mammogram.

Half the world menstruates. But talking about periods is still taboo. And that's a problem. HealthyWomen seeks to encourage, empower, elevate and normalize the discussion about menstrual health.
Launched in May 2021, this two-part video series aims to break the taboo around periods and seeks to encourage, empower, elevate and normalize the discussion around menstrual health. Our first video, Understanding Your Period, and second video, Let’s Talk Periods, are a series moderated by two incredible women and includes an esteemed group of panelists that discusses what’s normal, how to be confident in this conversation, the ways your cycle changes throughout your lifespan and how schools and communities can play a positive role in supporting people with periods.

Our animated video between Mom and Daughter goes through a conversation on how having osteoporosis and falling tend to go hand in hand. In this animated voiceover video they work together to go through the home and identify both risks and solutions so that a fall is less likely to occur. It can be a stressful time in both parties' lives and we hope this dialogue offers some communication ideas and gives people a sense of what to look out for.

What can you do to keep your family safe? In our new extensive digital education program, we share the facts you need to know and the questions to ask your healthcare provider about AMR. We turned to Dr. Maria Isabel Rosas Garcia, a pediatric infectious disease specialist, to explain more about why AMR should be taken seriously and what you can do to fight the growing health concern. Our webinar, “Antimicrobial Resistance: The Global Threat and Why Women Need to Know About It” includes leading experts who discuss the basics of AMR, how we need to raise awareness, appropriate use of antibiotics and what women can do for themselves and their families.

Through our Reclaim Your Wellness campaign, HealthyWomen and the Black Women's Health Imperative in collaboration with the Obesity Action Coalition are changing the conversation around living with obesity. More than 93 million Americans are living with obesity. Yet it’s often perceived by society and the healthcare community as a result of poor personal choices, rather than the complex, chronic disease that it is. Because of the stigma, bias and misinformation surrounding obesity, far too many people do not have ongoing access to the care they need. Together, through the Reclaim Your Wellness campaign, HealthyWomen,The Black Women’s Health Imperative, and the Obesity Action Coalition are giving a voice to women living with obesity. On our Beyond the Body hub you’ll find six videos of women telling their unique stories of living with obesity and see a recorded Facebook Live Q&A in which our panelists answered questions and spoke to even more of their personal journeys.
