Our Mission | Take the Pledge | Share Your Story | Read Real Stories

The first step in creating change is committing to it. Your Health Promise encourages you to take a good look at your health care experience and ask

  • Are there ways I can improve my health?
  • Am I currently receiving the care that I want?
  • Are there options available that better align with my health care needs, values, and preferences?

Starting today, you can make a difference in your health by making the Your Health Promise pledge to become a more active health care consumer by recognizing that you have choices and becoming aware of the women’s health care services and providers available to you.

Your Health Promise

Take charge of knowing what your options are—it’s your body and your health. Make a promise to yourself today to be the most informed health care consumer you can be. You deserve it!

  • I promise to take control of my own health. I will make decisions for myself based on facts and the type of care that means the most to me in maintaining my health.
  • I promise to better understand the choices I have in managing my health care.
  • I will learn more about my personal health preferences and explore the care options available that can best meet my health needs.
  • I promise to be an active decision maker in my care. Medical procedures performed on my body without my knowledge or understanding are not acceptable.
  • I promise to put my health first. I will educate myself on ways to improve or maintain my high standard of health and talk to my care provider about how they can help me meet these goals.
  • I promise to improve my health care experience. I will become informed about different health care providers and approaches to care and use this information to improve my own experience as a health care consumer.
  • I promise to encourage others to take charge of their health. I am a force for change and will inspire my friends and family to better their own health through awareness and action.
