The Health Hut strives for more

For the past four months the Health Hut has been cruising around Lincoln Parish offering free medical services to parish residents who find themselves without insurance for whatever reason that might be.
So far more than 900 residents have walked through the mobile unit’s doors to be examined.
While Health Hut founders Dr. Leonel Lacayo and his wife, Lisa, started the program as a way to help the numerous residents who can’t afford insurance in the area, the group is now working to help area businesses that can’t afford to offer health insurance to their employees thanks to the state of the economy and the ever-increasing rates of insurance premiums.

Listening issues need addressing

Rosemond, John.jpg

Question: My 5-year-old daughter is in “rehab” for some listening issues at school. When she comes home with a note from her teacher indicating one or more of these incidents at school, she is confined to her room for the rest of the day. What should I do if she is constantly calling me, wanting to ask me something, wanting me to get something for her and so on? She isn’t coming out of the room, but she is constantly trying to engage me. It’s driving me nuts.
