About this program

Every month, our website features the Spotlight on Women’s Health — personal stories of women experiencing different health issues. In these personal interviews, womenshealth.gov asks the questions you’re interested in to give you an inside look at women’s health. Get a new interview sent to your inbox each month by subscribing to the News email updates.

How does it work?

The Spotlight interview offers an opportunity for anyone to share information about a health topic important to women. From doctors and nurses to students and stay-at-home moms, the Spotlight interviews give our readers a different perspective on a variety of health topics. For example, we might interview a dentist for a professional opinion about oral health, and we might also interview a breast cancer survivor to learn about her personal experience.

How do I participate?

Email us at womenshealth@hhs.gov for details on the interview process, for topics we’re interested in, and to be considered for the program. While we can’t interview everyone who is interested, we will do our best to see if you are a fit for our program. Also, we can keep your information anonymous if you would like to submit a story on a sensitive topic using a different name.

What is the process?

  1. After discussing your story or your health expertise, we will develop interview questions.
  2. We will email you the questions for you to answer or we can interview you over the phone, if you prefer.
  3. After you answer the interview questions, we’ll review them and discuss any necessary edits.

Here are some things to consider:

  • You do not have to be a professional writer to contribute to the program.
  • Your Spotlight on Women’s Health will reach thousands of women who share similar interests and enjoy reading about subjects that they can relate to.
