    Habari Gani

    I have several sister friends celebrating Kwanzaa this week. I greet them with Habari gani, which is a Swahili phrase meaning what is the news? And they respond with the principle of the day. The third day of Kwanzaa when this blog is released is Ujima which means collective work and responsibility. It reminds us that we all have a role to play in the community, society and the world. Each time you read this blog and share the information, you are practicing Ujima. You are working towards a healthier world.

    This past year we have all been affected by the pandemic in different ways. I am extremely saddened by the loss of life and pray for those that lost a loved one that you will find peace and strength to face the New Year. For some of us, it has given us a time to slow down and reflect on what does it mean to be able to wake up in the morning and take a deep breath and be alive. I want to thank each of you for your continued commitment to live the purpose and mission of this website and weekly blog – disseminating information that would be helpful to those who need the tools for healthy living. You inspire me to write weekly.

    As we have always done semi-annually, below is the list of the top five most read blogs over the past 6 months:

    It Has Been Approved –Discusses the approval of the COVID-19 vaccine and why I am more confident about the vaccine.

    My Ask – Breastfeeding saves lives and saves money. Learn how you can be a Community Breastfeeding Champion.

    Wakanda Forever – Take Action – We were all surprised about the death of Chadwick Boseman at age 43 due to colon cancer. We talk about ways to decrease the risks of colon cancer.

    Why Run if You Can Walk – We can all walk and the health benefits are amazing.

    Do You Have ‘Pandemic Fatigue’? – Provides information on how to deal with the stress of COVID. Please do not let your guard down.

    Thank you for all that you do to keep yourselves and those in your circle healthy. This is how we make a difference in our community, society and the world.

    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.
