EmPowerHer Initiative

Help a Woman You Know Make Better Health Decisions

The EmPowerHer initiative aims to inspire women to lead healthy lives. Every day, they do so much for family and community. While women focus on others, Harmony is committed to helping women focus on their own health and wellness. Along with our community partners, we give women the knowledge and support they need to stay their healthy best.


Get preventive screenings

Regular breast and cervical cancer exams are key to staying healthy. Other health concerns need attention, too. That includes:
  • asthma
  • diabetes
  • prenatal and postpartum care
Some important things to know to keep you and your family healthy are listed below.

Asthma 

Do you or someone in your family have asthma? It’s important that you follow the asthma action plan from your doctor. And take your daily medicines as prescribed.

Diabetes 

Type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed with a healthy lifestyle. That includes:

  • staying at a healthy weight
  • making good food choices
  • getting regular exercise
Breast Cancer Screenings 

The risk for breast cancer goes up as you get older. Mammograms can find some breast cancers early. At that point, the cancer may be easier to treat. See you doctor for advice on screenings.

Prenatal Care and Postpartum Care 

Regular prenatal care helps decrease health risks. Care during pregnancy increases the chance of a safe and healthy delivery. Be sure to see your doctor within 6 weeks after delivery. Some mothers face physical and emotional changes while learning to care for a newborn.

Well Child Visits & Childhood Immunizations 

Well-child visits are important to track growth and development. These visits can also spot and address any problems early on. Six or more well-child visits are advised by the time your child is 15 months old.

Cervical Cancer Screenings 

Cervical cancer is one of the easiest cancers to prevent. Just be sure to get regular screening tests and follow-up. A Pap test is advised for all women between ages 21 and 65.

Colon Cancer Screenings 

Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the U.S. It occurs most often in people over age 50. See your doctor about what type of screening is right for you.
