    One Year and Still Going

    One Year and Still Going

    Wow, it has been one year since this website was launched and I have to say it has been a great year. I have received positive feedback from many of you and would encourage each of you to spread the message. I believe to accomplish our primary mission of reducing health disparity through education and empowerment will require each of us to take an active role and that can be as simple as sharing the information with those that you think will benefit.

    As I mentioned in the first blog dated July, 26, 2015, this is our website and it exists for the purpose of disseminating information that will be helpful for anyone who needs the tools for healthy living. On December 27, the blog titled Looking Back, Moving Forward reviewed the five most popular blogs from the first 6 months of launching the site. I would like to use this opportunity to review the most read blogs in the past 6 months.

    The Men in Our Lives In honor of Father’s Day, it was a reminder to all of us to encourage the men in our lives to get their preventative care and screening tests.

    So, What’s Your Excuse – You can only be inspired when you hear the story of Ms. Ida Keeling who at 100 years old is still setting records in track-and-field

    Take the Pledge – Make Your Health a Priority – As women we are so busy taking care of everyone around us that we often forget to take care of ourselves. If we want to be great care takers, our first priority is to take care of ourselves.

    What is the Third Leading Cause of Death – It was a shock to learn that the third leading cause of death was medical error. This blog offered advice on tips to help prevent medical errors while in the hospital

    Health and the Declaration of Independence – What does it mean to be endowed with unalienable rights – Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness?

    I am looking forward to the next year, but I do need your help. If there are health topics that you want addressed, please contact me. This website is for all of us. We need to be educated to be empowered.

      My sisters…Doctors and their medical staff are human just like us, therefore we need to communicate with them and know that the only dumb questions are ones not asked.

    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.
