Mother's Day Health Message: May 9 National Women's Checkup Day

As part of National Women’s Health Week which begins on Mothers Day, May 9 has been declared the ninth annual National Women’s Checkup Day.

“The day is dedicated to encouraging women to visit health care professionals to receive or schedule a checkup and to promote regular checkups as vital to the early detection of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, mental health illnesses, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and other conditions,” according to, the website of the Office of Women’s Health, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS). There you can find more information about this event, and join the pledge drive being sponsored by HHS.

A separate Mother’s Day Health Message is being sponsored by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), on its website. It includes health information for Mothers, as well as a Mother’s Health Quiz.

For family members, the CDC also offers a free e-health Mothers Day Card. This is an electronic greeting card with the cover message, “Thanks for all that you’ve done to keep me safe and healthy. Now it’s your turn…,” in which you can personalize a health message for Mothers in your life.
