L’Briut! — Women’s Health Day


UPDATE:  Did you see the coverage about AACI’s Women’s Health Day in the newspaper? Click here to read it! Thanks Haaretz!

Go to the AACI website  and type “health” into the search box. You will be surprised at the number of results that show up!

AACI is committed to promoting healthy lifestyles for our members and the general public. We offer:

  •  ongoing exercise classes several times a week, including Tai Chi, Feldenkrais and exercise for 50+
  •  information for new olim on the various kupot cholim (health funds) in Israel
  •  blood drives (the next one is coming up on March 25)

Now, in honor of International Women’s Day,* AACI is cooperating with Hadassah Medical Organization, Jewish Diabetes Association, Efrat Women’s Health Center, Bishvilaych and Ha’aretz to present an entire day dedicated to women’s health.
High-level experts, including physicians and researchers, will speak in English on a wide range of topics geared toward women of all ages.
