Reflecting and Thanking

As we reflect on 2016, we have much to be thankful for. The end of the year is the time to look back on major accomplishments and recognize the people who have supported us throughout the year.

We at Speaking of Women’s Health are very thankful for our national supporters, Clever Crazes for Kids, a wonderful non-profit advancing children's health, and Cleveland Clinic, a nonprofit, multispecialty academic medical center that integrates clinical and hospital care with research and education.

We are also so grateful for you, our online supporters who visit our site, read our columns, respond to our social media and download our free treatment guides.

Women’s Health Events, News, Content and More

We work hard year-round to bring you the latest in women's health. We hope you take advantage of all of our online content. Below are just a few of the many ways we connect with our readers online:


Have you heard of #GivingTuesday, yet? #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. It harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year.
