GCI Health has partnered with health information source HealthyWomen and Prevention magazine on a survey examining the rising amount of stress among women. The survey was conducted by #BeHealthiHer, which was launched by GCI Health and HealthyWomen in 2017. Close to two-thirds of the women surveyed (65 percent) said that they suffer from symptoms of stress daily, with 40 percent of them experiencing those symptoms multiple times a day. The study’s findings, which are being revealed on the Nov. 20 episode of ABC’s Tamron Hall Show, are also featured in the December issue of Prevention. In addition, GCI Health, HealthyWomen and Prevention are working together to provide resources aimed at helping women eliminate many of the common stress triggers in their daily lives.
