As a female warfighter, it’s critical to maintain your health, fitness, and wellbeing to optimize mission readiness. Some health concerns affect women differently than men, regardless of age or ethnicity. When women are aware of gender-specific health concerns, they can devise a plan to take better care of themselves. Female Sailors and Marines should take charge of their health, making their health a priority by adopting healthy living habits that include eating a well-balanced diet, being active, maintaining a healthy weight, managing stress, staying injury free, practicing safe sex, only drinking in moderation, being tobacco free, and getting a well woman exam each year.
