September 29, 2010
National Women's Health and Fitness Day

National Women's Health and Fitness Day is the nation’s largest annual health promotion event for women of all ages. The next event is set for Wednesday, September 29, 2010, and in future years, will always be held on the last Wednesday in September.

This unique national program — with participation by local organizations throughout the U.S. — focuses attention on the importance of regular physical activity and health awareness for women.

Women’s Health and Fitness Day will also be part of a new National Women’s Health and Fitness Week, to be held annually the last week in September. On Wednesday, September 29, 2010, more than 1,400 groups across the country will host women’s health and fitness events at senior centers, hospitals, health clubs, park and recreation districts, local health and service organizations, schools, retirement communities, houses of worship, and other community locations. An estimated 40,000 to 100,000 women are expected to participate in these local activities.

Physical health and inner health go hand-in-hand. As health-conscious women, it is important for us to be aware of what is going on inside us to stay healthy and treat or prevent diseases at any age!! You can get screening tests that will assess organ function as well as screen for common cancers (such as ovarian cancer) and conditions (such as heart and liver disease and diabetes). A lot of women don't know that you can order these tests online, without having to go to your doctor! It's much more convenient and it saves you time and money! If you go to, you can order a Complete Female Checkup test or, for women over 50, an Ultimate Female Checkup test.

These comprehensive panel of tests are so important, ladies! Top health experts from the US Preventive Services Task Force recommend all women get screened to help them stay healthy at any age! Use coupon code LAB4NF for additional discounts when you order the tests.

What better day than today, National Women's Health and Fitness Day, to take charge of your health?!

Thank you Nicole. I agree testing is so very important for early detection, prevention and treatment.

I've never used an online lab before. Have you used the lab you mentioned? If so, how reliable are they?
