OSU Women's Health Center promotes health and wellness

National Women's Health WeekAs part of National Women's Health Week, May 12-18, the Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences is offering tips to make health a priority.

"Most women are caregivers for their families but forget to make their own health a priority," said Regina Lewis, D.O., director of the OSU Women's Health Center. "Our goal during this week is to empower the women of our community to take simple steps for better health."

Lewis encourages women to take the following steps to improve overall health:

  • Visit a health care professional to receive regular checkups and preventive screenings.
  • Get active and eat healthy.
  • Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
  • Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, not wearing a seatbelt or bicycle helmet, and texting while driving.

The OSU Women's Health Center focuses on the overall health and well-being of women and provides comprehensive care and services like physical examinations, prenatal care and mammograms. To make an appointment, call 918-561-8543 or visit the OSU Women's Health Center website.
