The U.S. Public Health Service's Office on Women's Health (PHS OWH)
invites you to test our new National Women's Health Information
Center, (NWHIC) during the month of February! Through a toll-free
phone number and the Internet, the NWHIC acts as a federal "Woman's
Health Central" for the public, health care professionals, educators,

specific program, concern, or disease, you can call 1-800-994-WOMAN.

Once you have made the connection with our new service, we would like
to hear your feedback! Were the specialists helpful? Were you able to
get your questions answered? Is the web-site user-friendly? Do you have
any suggestions on how we can improve the service? You can give us
feedback by e-mailing us via our FEEDBACK option on the website, or by
calling the PHS OWH office at 202-260-9275. We hope this pre-test
period will give the PHS OWH the information it needs to make this a
truly useful service for women, as well as help us assess the impact of
the service on other federal health agencies.
We would like to officially launch this new service in March/April.
Please help us reach that goal by testing and letting us know how it
