    That Time of the Year

    by Ngozi Osuagwu, MD | December 25th, 2022

    That Time of the Year

    We have reached that time of the year when we review the most-read blog over the past six months. In addition, I also decided to add a bonus, the least-read blog.

    5. It Takes A Team – November is National Diabetes Month. This past November, the theme for the month was Diabetes Management: It Takes A Team. This blog reminds those with diabetes are not alone, and the key to managing diabetes is to create a team where the team is committed to having the person with diabetes at the center.

    4. The Potent Drug – Gratitude – There are health benefits to expressing gratitude, reducing stress, and reducing depression. To get the full health benefits of gratitude, there must be action behind the gratitude. Learn some different types of gratitude exercises.

    3. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month – Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women. An excerpt from the book, Sincerely Gynecologist is shared which illustrates the consequences of Domestic Violence.

    2. November 1, 2022, is the New Date – After a long delay, Sincerely, Your Gynecologist was finally released. In this blog, there is an explanation of how the cover was chosen.

    1. October is Health Literacy Month – (most read blog over the past six months) – Health literacy is a shared responsibility between patients and providers. Each must communicate in ways that the other can understand. Learn how Ask Me 3™ can help.

    The least-read blog was titled Bone Health is Important for all Ages. One in two women over 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis can be prevented. Fractures can be prevented. Learn what needs to be done at all ages. 

    The first day of Kwanzaa honors Umoja, which in Swahili means Unity. When I think of Unity, I think about all of us coming together to keep our sisters Alive and Healthy. Thank you for taking the time to read the blog and share the information with those you believe will benefit.

    Wishing you and all who hold your affection the best in the coming year

      Good morning! I don’t remember reading “That Time of the Year “ at this time last year! Yesterday, a dear, younger sister-friend shared information with me about affirmations for oneself, in the New Year, vs. resolutions for the New Year. I will share them with you, via email, b cause I like the idea so much!

    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.
