Learn about Parkinson’s

Nearly 1 million Americans have Parkinson’s disease, according to the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation website. It is also estimated that 7 to 10 million people have the disease worldwide.
April is Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month, and since approximately 60,0000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with the disease each year, it is important that people learn about this disease.
Parkinson’s disease is a chronic and progressive movement disorder. However, treatments can help those living with the disease manage their symptoms.

U.S. healthcare needs reform

DeGrie, Elizabeth.jpg

More than 60 percent of people who go bankrupt in the United States, do so because of medical bills. At least, that was the case in 2007 before the Great Recession, according to a June 2009 Reuters article.
The article also said that 62 percent was an increase from 46 percent in 2001. Considering that, and the state of the economy, it seems safe to infer that those statistics have either held steady or gotten worse. I hate to infer, but I couldn’t find any statistics more recent than these.

Easter food fun safety tips

Judd, Cathy S..jpg

I remember the good old days when we hid Easter eggs all day in the hot sun with my family and friends. We would take turns hiding them and finding them, it was an all day ordeal — I have seven siblings and the neighbor kids participated too.
We didn’t practice food safety back then. I guess that explains the upset stomachs.
To help you have a happy hunt, remember proper refrigeration, cooking and handling should prevent most egg safety problems.

Are ‘terrific kids’ really terrific

in
Rosemond, John.jpg

If the frequency of my own sightings is any indication, those “My Child Is a Terrific Kid!”
bumper stickers are fast becoming ubiquitous. Curious, I did some investigating and discovered that Terrific Kids is a school-based character-building program sponsored by Kiwanis.
Terrific is an acronym that stands for Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive and Capable.

Spreading the word

Speaker visits for Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month

Chances are most people don’t really know much about Parkinson’s disease, except that Michael J. Fox has it and it involves uncontrollable shaking.
But, that isn’t the entire story, as like any other disease, Parkinson’s doesn’t necessarily affect all people in the same way.
For example, Bob Attebery, a member of the Lincoln Parish Parkinson’s Disease Support Group, isn’t easily tempted when walking by a pizza parlor.
