Communities and countries, and ultimately the world are only as strong as the health of their women. – Michelle Obama
In the early times, the air was fresh, people ate healthy and led active lives. But at present, the scenario is quite the opposite. Although women are seen in various fields now—working in corporates and leading the world, some stigmas are still prevalent.
As we see improvements in women's rights in modern times, we also see numerous diseases come into being. There have been various health issues concerning women, from ovarian cancer to polycystic ovary syndrome. The list is endless.
Women often discard issues like pain and discomfort as cramps or hormones. But what they do not understand is that those issues can be symptoms for some underlying disease. Therefore, even the smallest change in the body must be paid attention.
In this podcast, Michelle Smith discusses the rising health risks for women. She talks about how organizations should take the female workforce’s health into serious consideration.
