    A Little Bit of Introspection

    by Ngozi Osuagwu, MD | December 26th, 2016

    A Little Bit of Introspection

    Every year I send a Holiday Letter to my associates at work and this year towards the end of the letter I wrote the following:

    …this time of year always brings fellowship but it also calls for a little bit of introspection. Please spend time enjoying your family, friends, and colleagues. Spend time on contemplation, focusing on what truly matters…

    I have been thinking about this website and whether I have been true to its purpose and mission. The purpose is to disseminate information that would be helpful to those who need the tools for healthy living.  Its primary mission is to reduce health disparity through education and empowering women.

    This is blog # 74 and the feedback has been great. Some prefer to send an email directly to me rather than make a comment on a particular blog and that is ok. Some choose to read the blogs without joining the family and that is ok. I hope the information is helpful to you or someone you may know.

    Every 6 months, I like to share the most read blogs from the previous 6 months. The top five are:

    GYNECOLOGY 101: WHAT IS THE ‘INSIDE SCOOP’?  – There are just somethings you cannot find in book, you really need to hear it from someone that works in the system.

    GYNECOLOGY 101: PAP SMEAR, PELVIC EXAM AND THE WELL WOMAN EXAM – IS THERE A DIFFERENCE? – It is so important to understand what is being done when you see your gynecologist or primary care physician. This blog will help.

    A DIRTY LITTLE SECRET – One in 25 hospital patients on any given day has at least one health care- associated infection. The ‘do-it-yourself” vaccine is the key to prevention.

    DO YOU HAVE DIABETES OR PREDIABETES? – One in three people have diabetes and do not know they have it and 9 out of 10 people with prediabetes do not know they have it. Learn about the symptoms and how to get tested.

    WILL YOU BE GETTING THE MONEY? – Knowing your numbers – body mass index (BMI), blood pressure and hemoglobin A1C and working to get it normalized may results in money at the work place.

    Thank you for being part of the family and sharing the information with those close to you and beyond. May God bless you and those that hold your affection. I wish you and your family peace, love and happiness for the rest of the year and for 2017.

    Secure Your Copy of Letters to My Sisters by Dr. Ngozi Osuagwu.

    The book discusses common gynecological and women’s health issues in a series of witty and entertaining letters. These letters, all educational, offer suggestions on what approaches to take in tackling the medical problems that typically bring women to an ob/gynecologist. The letters are spiced with art, a poem and quotes. Although its emphasis is on gynecology and women’s health, it touches on some other medical issues that make women visit their doctors.

    The second half of the book briefly discusses the most common gynecological conditions and also provides an overview of sexually transmitted infections. A list of annotated websites dealing with the different topics in the book is provided for the reader who wants to pursue each subject in depth.
