WomensHealthMonth.jpg

May is a special time to celebrate and honor the women in our lives. Women are the health care decision-makers in most families, but often in their busy lives, they do not take time for self-care.  Moms, grandmas, aunts, sisters, and even the women who step in to be moms, deserve our love and attention. At Tucson Medical Center, we know that their health is important to you, too. That's why we designate May as Women's Health Month at TMC.

Making healthy decisions is easy with the wide variety of classes offered at TMC in May. From classes on running and pregnancy to strengthening our bones to prevent falls to learning about stroke prevention, there is something for every important woman in your life - including you!

See the list of classes below, make your pick and register today. We know that healthy looks good on you!
