January Health Days Calendar
The human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. In fact, many people who contract the virus never know they have it because they don’t have any symptoms. Share information about HPV with your audience to help increase appointments for diagnoses and prevention.
- Birth Defects Prevention Month
While there is no way to completely prevent birth defects or other health issues, education and regular doctor’s appointments will help with early detection and sharing resources with parents.
Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood, according to the American Red Cross. Blood donations are used for accident victims, as well as cancer, organ transplant and surgery patients. People with chronic illnesses need blood, too. Discussing information about how blood donations help people of all ages and can very literally save a life.
Winter sports such as snowboarding and skiing can cause concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Use Winter Sports TBI Month to discuss the vital importance of safety equipment and the precautions to take when enjoying winter sports, as well as what to do in the event of an accident.
- Diet Resolution Week (Jan 2nd-8th)
As people set their New Year’s resolution to lose weight and live healthier, many consider new and trendy diets. Hospitals and health organizations can connect with their audience online and drive traffic to their website by providing information about these diets, as well as tips on the healthiest ways to lose weight.
- Healthy Weight Week (Jan 16th-22nd)
The number one resolution that people make in the beginning of each year is to eat healthier and to reach a healthy weight. By answering questions about proper caloric intake and healthier food options, hospitals and health organizations can help people to reach their weight goals and create habits that contribute to a healthier lifestyle.
It’s soup season! While people are craving warm, comforting dishes, use the opportunity to share healthy recipes that will drive engagement and boost traffic.

Cauliflower and Leek Soup:
The mellow flavors of leeks and cauliflower make this a satisfying soup for lunch or a light dinner. Just a touch of coconut milk gives the soup a creamy texture without a lot of fat.
