Yoga for Health

The Office of Women’s Health (OWH) was established in 1998 to improve the health status of women in Los Angeles County by providing education and promoting resources, programs, and policies that are helpful and responsive to women, reducing health disparities and increasing access to culturally competent, comprehensive health services.

Why Prevention Matters

Chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer make up the largest portion of the disease burden in L.A County. Illnesses associated with (lack of preventive care) impacts quality of life and substantially increases the cost of providing healthcare. The largest portion of health care resources is still spent on the diagnosis and treatment of chronic disease while only a very small amount is spent on prevention efforts. However, prevention, which includes screenings, health education and strategies to promote a healthy lifestyle and environment, is an important way public health programs can improve health and wellness. The L.A County Office of Women’s Health has launched a “Prevention Matters!” campaign with a focus on heart health, the #1 killer of women. The goal of the campaign is to help reduce the burden of chronic disease among women over age 40 by raising awareness, providing education, promoting advocacy and policy recommendations, and increasing access for the age-appropriate screenings of low-income women. This multi-cultural, multi-lingual awareness, education, advocacy and screening campaign targeting low-income women is being implemented in increments over several years.
