What is a Meetup?
A National Women's Health Week Meetup is an event or activity that promotes women's health. Anyone and any group can organize a Meetup. For example, if you work at a health clinic, you can host a free blood pressure screening Meetup. If you want to find walking buddies, you can organize a Meetup at your local park and invite other women to walk with you. For more Meetup ideas, check out our Planning and promoting your Meetup guide.
How can I get involved?
You can get involved by organizing a Meetup for women in your community. Or, you can sign up for one that's already taking place.

How do I join or start a Meetup?
Whether you're organizing your own Meetup or RSVPing to attend one in your community, you will first need to set up an account or log into your existing account. To join or start a Meetup near you, follow these steps:
Step 1: Go to the National Women's Health Week Meetup Everywhere page and in the top right hand corner, click on "Log in."
Step 2: If you already have a Meetup account, fill in your username and password. If you don’t have an account, click on "Sign up."
Step 3: When you click on “Sign up,” you’ll be given two options:
- a) Sign up using Facebook.
- b) Create an account that isn’t linked to Facebook. To do that, click on “Otherwise, Join Meetup Here.”
Step 4: Once you fill in all the required information, Meetup will send you an email to verify your account. Check your junk mail folder if you don’t receive it shortly after signing up. Then, click on the link in the email. You’ll be taken to your Meetup page and asked about your interests. Make sure to fill that out so Meetup suggests groups that are relevant to you.
- Step 5: Now that your account is set up, go back to the National Women’s Health Week Meetup Everywhere page where you’ll see a list of cities and towns. If your location is listed, click on it to see what the Meetups are being held in your area. You can RSVP to attend one or create a new one. Don’t see your city or town listed? Start a new community, and then schedule Meetups on women's health topics that are important to you.
