Talk to healthcare professionals in your community (i.e., doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and even school nurses for children’s needs). Also, government and public health officials are usually great sources for learning about local and national resources.
Visit trusted websites for valuable health information, such as The National Women’s Health Information Center – www.womenshealth.gov, or the National Women’s Health Resource Center – www.healthywomen.org.
Lastly, remember to enjoy life and your family. After all, laughter is the best medicine.
