    THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT SURVIVES

    by Ngozi Osuagwu, MD | March 26th, 2017

    THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT SURVIVES

    What a week. I held my breath for two days and finally exhaled on Thursday evening. The Affordable Care Act Survived. Who knows what is going to happen in the future, but this is what we have now and it is important that we take full advantage of what it has to offer.

    If you have not scheduled your annual well woman exam, maybe this will serve as a reminder. Please click here to see what is covered without any cost sharing through the Affordable Care Act.

    As, I mentioned in an earlier blog, we will be taking Spring break. You can use this opportunity to catch up on the any part of the series that you missed or you can just relax. I will be relaxing.

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

    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.
