We’ll explore the state of women’s health in Ohio and the U.S. today and what can be done to improve it.

Ohio is ranked 32nd in overall health rankings for women (and children), according to a 2018 report published by America’s Health Rankings

The statistics can be alarming, but what can be done to reverse these trends and inequalities? What role do our lawmakers play in our health? Where do we go from here?
