Up until the most recent decades, health studies were primarily performed on men, as well as measured and interpreted by men. While this was and still is a result of societal influence, it is time women get more recognition in healthcare.
As a result, Megan-Marie Handmade donates a portion of profits to Women's Health Research, which is the study of health across a woman’s lifespan in order to preserve wellness and to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease. It includes all health conditions for which women and men experience differences in risk, presentation, and treatment response, as well as health issues specific to women, such as pregnancy and menopause.
Women’s health research considers both sex and gender differences and how these differences affect disease risk, pathophysiology, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment.
MISSION: The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) is dedicated to promoting research on biological sex differences in disease and improving women’s health through science, policy, and education.
VISION: Make women’s health mainstream.
As a consumer and wearer of Megan-Marie's jewelry, you are contributing to her wellness and purpose, as well to the causes she finds meaningful today.
As a holistic healthcare provider by primary degree, Megan-Marie speaks frequently of the value of creativity, community, and giving back for cultivating foundational happiness and health.
In fact, Megan-Marie Handmade was created from a deliberate effort to find more balance in her "life's ecosystem" using creativity. As a result, this outlet grew into a second business, and one where she intentionally prioritizes creativity over profits.
Currently, The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) is where she donates a portion of her profits. Just as the ecosystem of our mind and bodies is the foundation for our health, the ecosystem of our earth is the foundation for humankind.
WCS's goal is to conserve the world's largest wild places in 14 priority regions, home to more than 50% of the world's biodiversity. Below is their Instagram. Please consider following!
MISSION: WCS saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature.
VISION: WCS envisions a world where wildlife thrives in healthy lands and seas, valued by societies that embrace and benefit from the diversity and integrity of life on earth.
