Women's Health

The Chicago NOW Health team aims to have an impact on health issues that affect women disproportionately in order to improve the health of all women in Chicago. There are a myriad of issues that uniquely impact women and girls’, and it’s often challenging to draw out a few on which to focus efforts. The health team typically focuses on body image issues by celebrating Love Your Body Day. For the past few years, CNOW has sponsored an essay contest for Chicago Public School high school students for love your body day (loveyourbody.nowfoundation.org). This year, CNOW’s health team hosted the event at Phoenix Military Academy. The Sisterhood group at the Phoenix Military Academy enjoyed activities, discussion, and a short film by the Sister’s Empowering Sister’s group. In addition, the Health Team participates in current policy issues that affect women such as the Stupak Amendment and the Abbate trials.
