Creating Awareness and Providing Resources to Empower Women's Health and Wellness

NEW YORK, May 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of National Women's Health Week (May 8-14), EmblemHealth, one of the nation's largest nonprofit health plans, wants to inspire women to make their health and wellness a priority. During the course of the week, Emblem will feature on its "Who's Caring for You" blog a compelling series from expert contributors focused on a robust range of topics geared toward women. Additionally, Emblem's four Neighborhood Care locations in the city – Harlem, Cambria Heights, Chinatown, and Crown Heights – will feature a selection of free women's-only wellness classes during the week.

"Women are the family caregivers, but often they put aside their own health and wellness needs as they care for their loved ones," said Karen Ignagni, President and CEO of EmblemHealth. "This week provides the perfect time to encourage women to take care of their own health. We're proud to offer programs and information to empower helpful health care decision-making."

Next week, Emblem's blog will delve into how women are the owners of family health and the importance of understanding their priorities in order to provide the benefits and care that are attuned to their holistic needs. Additionally, a range of topics written by health and medical experts from AdvantageCare Physicians – Emblem's partner – will cover nutrition, reproductive and sexual health issues.  Also, on Mother's Day, as a lead-up to National Women's Health Week, each Neighborhood Care location will offer special events and activities for women. 

Emblem is committed to supporting health and wellness across the New York tristate area.  The tools, resources and support offered through Emblem, Neighborhood Care and AdvantageCare Physicians, provide innovative solutions to an array of health care needs.
