Helping Women Take Responsibility for their Health
Women today are pressed for time. Many work outside the home, care for their families and often help care for other relatives as well. Because women have so many roles and responsibilities, they often place others' needs before their own.
At Baptist Health Lexington, we encourage women to take time for themselves - to exercise, prioritize their own health and wellness, eat right and manage the stress that so many conflicting responsibilities can bring. That's why we offer classes designed to enhance personal wellness, such as:
- Breast Health by Women is a program designed to promote early detection of breast cancer in its most treatable stages.
- Focus on Healing Through Movement and Exercise is a therapeutic exercise program for women who have had any kind of breast surgery, node dissection, radiation, chemotherapy or who suffer from chronic fatigue.
