Title Women, work and health: some challenges to health promotion
Date 1987
Description With greater proportions of women spending more of their working' lives outside the home, the worksite may be an excellent place for health education and promotion among women. Building' opportunities into the work day for information and counselling sessions, education about worksite health hazards, as well as programs for exercise, weight control, smoking cessation, and stress reduction could be an important means of addressing the health needs of working women. Given the longer life expectancy of women when compared to men, health promotion of this sort might enable more women to spend more of their lives in good health.
