May: A Time to Celebrate Mothers & Womanhood
Mother’s Day is a time to reflect on all your mother did for you. It is also a time to think about your own role as a mother and a daughter. As women, we have an incredible community that we built for ourselves.
As the director of Women’s Health services at Beebe Healthcare I would like to invite you to enjoy a new online community created just for women. Beebe’s Women’s Health microsite is a place to find health information, read stories of other women in all stages of life, and enjoy blogs written by women in our community. This month, I invite you to visit the microsite online and engage with some of our bloggers as they write about their experiences as mothers and children. May is a great month to recognize the incredible work of mothers and women!
We are proud at Beebe to offer a wealth of services and programs for women in our community. And, we know that health is more than just a destination, it is something that represents something different to each of us.
Health is not an elusive goal to seek, or some way to cross a finish line, as if to say, “I’ve made it! I’m finally healthy!” It happens in your everyday decisions. It happens in the ways we shop at the grocery store and plan meals for our families. Health happens in almost every moment, whether as a reminder to get up from your desk and stretch or to call your neighbor who just started her chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer.
Health means knowing that even in the face of chronic illness or disease, we can enjoy each day to the fullest. We want Beebe to be accessible. This is a conversation and journey we’re embarking on together. Your health is important to us, every single day. Whether you’re getting a check-up or just taking a walk on the boardwalk, you are part of Beebe’s community.
The good news is that no matter where you are on your wellness journey, Beebe Healthcare is committed to being there to provide you with state-of-the-art programs and services, the latest health information, and a large selection of excellent providers.
Our online Women’s Health website is JUST FOR YOU! This site was designed to provide you and your family with the latest health and wellness information. It will also allow all of us to be connected to each other through blogs and other forms of communication as we share and discuss what matters to us in our daily lives. You will have access to your own personal wellness journal designed to guide you through the emotional, intellectual, and practical aspects of life’s challenges, and you will be invited to engage with us through the blog and our social media pages, including a new BeebeWomensHealth Instagram page where we share motivational images and fun tips.
I hope you will join me in signing up for this exciting online community by visiting www.beebehealthcare.org/be-there. Let’s start the conversation and take this journey to health and wellness together. BE THERE!
Beebe is celebrating a “Month of Mothers” throughout May. Join the discussion on our blog and find resources, information, and stories about motherhood on our Women’s Health microsite at www.beebehealthcare.org/be-there. Follow along on Beebe Healthcare’s Facebook page and follow BeebeWomensHealth on Instagram.
