Why Women's Health? | Speak Up | Patients Speaking Up | Prizes
Welcome to Speak Up for Women’s Health, a two week campaign to raise awareness about topics within women’s health that are often shied away from.
Far too often women suffer with pain in silence. Whether they think pelvic pain is part of the aging process or they’re too embarrassed to talk about when they should get a mammogram, many women do not speak up.

We are asking you to take the pledge to Speak Up for Women’s Health! Women pledge to talk to their doctor, even if it feels like an awkward conversation. Men and women pledge talk to a woman in their life to help them work up the courage to further take control of their health. Get your megaphone today!
Whether they think that it is part of the aging process or they’re too embarrassed to talk about it, many women do not know that leakage when laughing is not normal or that you’re supposed to get your first mammogram at age 40. More often than not, women don’t speak up about these issues and we’re here to encourage them to do so.
Why Women’s Health
Ladies, you have no problem advocating for your loved ones’ health so why not yours? Yes, it can be uncomfortable talking to your doctor about how sex can be painful or you’re not sure when too much cramping is bad during periods – but it is important that you do. When you don’t, you could be doing more harm than good. NorthShore’s experts share health tips on when to go to the doctor, how to manage symptoms and more. Check out these health tips, and while you're at it you can make your appointment too.
