Providing trusted health information is vital to helping women take control over their health.
And while over 80% of women make the Internet part of their journey for answers, expert information and trusted resources are often hard to come by – especially for issues that many women are reluctant to reveal or seek out help for, such as mental health.
Women’s College Hospital is Canada’s pre-eminent academic ambulatory hospital focused on women’s health. One of the most successful ways that Women’s College Hospital reaches out to women is through womenshealthmatters.ca – a source of reliable, up-to-date information on women's health and lifestyle issues that receives over 4 million visits per year.
We’re teaming up with a women’s health leader to bring more knowledge to more women on more issues—and help make all women healthier as a result.
In collaboration with Women’s College Hospital and affiliated experts, we’re supporting new initiatives aimed at increasing the level of understanding and treatment of women’s health issues.
- Shoppers Drug Mart WOMEN is becoming the premier sponsor of womenshealthmatters.ca, enabling this major resource to refresh and expand its offerings, and more effectively serve even greater numbers of women.
- In addition, we are working with Women’s College Hospital and its Women’s Mental Health Program to develop a comprehensive website focused exclusively on women’s mental health, complete with interactive tools and resources.
- Shoppers Drug Mart has prepared a national survey to explore women’s perspectives on their health, and serve as the foundation of our Women’s Health Report, which will offer insights and recommendations on what services and resources women need to achieve optimal health.
- To ensure that all these and other activities have the very best minds behind them, we will work with a women's health advisory panel, comprised of representatives from Women’s College Hospital.
