Webinar: Women’s Health Behaviors and Decision-Making During and After COVID-19

HealthyWomen hosted a survey results discussion on "Emotional and Physical Health Behaviors and Health Care Decision-Making During and After COVID-19."

Programs

HealthyWomen recently convened an engaging webinar with thought-leaders across the health and wellness spectrum to discuss results of a survey it conducted on Women's Health Behaviors and Decision-Making During and After COVID-19. The survey and webinar, held Oct. 8, 2020, sought to truly understand women's emotional and physical health behaviors and health care decision-making during and after COVID-19.

HealthyWomen created and strategically fielded a national survey to over 3,000 women from across the country. The survey captured vital sociodemographic data points, like race, geography and economic status, to better address how these key factors play a critical role in COVID-19 health behaviors and decision-making among a broad cross-section of women.

Using survey results, HealthyWomen will create a detailed outcomes report and tailored educational resources to help meet the unique health and wellness needs of women in a COVID-19 environment.
