Health Survey Reveals Needs of Working Women

WASHINGTON- Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW) and HealthyWomen teamed up for a health survey to understand needs of working women. Results revealed that most women want information on diet and nutrition, fitness and exercises and issues around aging.

The Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW) will apply related resources on its website and social media outlets.

More than half of participants said they seek out information online for health news and issue analyses on Facebook. It was reported that of the survey respondents, 566 were CLUW members from 45 unions.

CLUW truly believes that empowering union women means making sure they have health information for themselves and their families that they need and want. The outstanding response to the survey makes it clear that we have to hit on a topic of particular important to union women. Many thanks to everyone who answered the survey, as well as everyone who got it out in the labor movement,” President Connie Leak said.

There were nearly 2,000 people who participated in the survey, and those results will be the main topic during CLUW’s convention in Sacramento, California on November 18-21. Panel speakers will discuss CLUW’s “Spread the Word” campaign on women’s health issues.
