Atherleen Gooding wants her body to last a long time, so she takes good care of it.

She is 66 and has been lifting weights for 35 years. She walks three miles every day. She eats lots of fruits and vegetables and has given up red meat.

To make certain her hard work is paying off, she attended the health fair sponsored by Christiana Care at the Wilmington Senior Center. Gooding received free screenings for bone density, diabetes and hypertension, as well as a flu shot.

“It’s good to get tested on a regular basis,” she said. “You can find out if there is a problem and take care of it right away.”

The event took place on Oct. 27, which is Make a Difference Day, an annual observance in which citizens are encouraged to band together to help other people.

Carmen Campbell receives a free blood-glucose screening, which tests for diabetes, at the Wilmington Senior Center health fair.

Christiana Care makes health care convenient and accessible to people in the community all year round through its outreach and education programs. By removing barriers to care, people can get the help they need when illnesses are in their earliest, most treatable stages.

People also can learn to prevent diseases through healthy behaviors, such as not smoking and practicing safe sex.

Deborah Hassler, an advanced practice nurse who treats trauma patients at Christiana Care, says texting and driving is a dangerous practice that contributes to accidents and serious injuries that are sometimes fatal.

“We are here to make people aware of just how serious this problem is and to ask people to sign a pledge that they will not text while driving,” she said.

Attendees also could learn their body mass index, or BMI, an indicator of obesity, as well as tips on starting an exercise regimen. Christiana Care residents gave quizzes on suggested portion sizes in a nutritious diet. For example, a serving of meat should be no larger than a deck of cards.

“How big should that serving of cheddar cheese be?” asked Amit Patel, M.D.

The answer: the equivalent of four dice.

In all, more than a dozen residents and attending physicians participated in the day’s events, including staffing Ask the Doctor tables, where people could get answers to common questions about health and wellness.

There were two presentations: Ina Li, M.D., a gerontologist who operates a Christiana Care practice at the Wilmington Senior Center, discussed how to age gracefully. Karla Testa, M.D., and Himani Divatia, M.D., two residents at Christiana Care, talked about health and wellness for all ages.

Linda Brennan-Jones, a Christiana Care social worker, connected people at the health fair to resources, including homeless shelters and the Community Access Healthcare Program or CHAP, which provides discounted care for people who don’t have insurance. Attendees who don’t have a primary care provider were linked with a medical home where they can receive routine care.

Seniors were encouraged to bring friends and relatives to the event.

“A lot of grandparents are raising children, so we are reaching out to people in all age groups,” Jones said.

Doris Murphy, 81, of Wilmington, took home information on screenings for colorectal cancer. She had her heel scanned—a quick, painless screening designed to detect bone loss—and was reassured that her bone health is good.

“Knowledge is power,” said Stacy Adams, a Christiana Care radiologic technologist certified in bone-density testing. “If someone gets a negative result here, we refer them for a more extensive test.”

As for Gooding, she learned that her lifestyle is paying off. Her bones are strong, and her blood pressure and blood glucose are at healthy levels.

“I’m happy that I came,” she said. “It only takes a few minutes to get screened—and now I have peace of mind.”

Is it fair for schools to restrict the kinds of foods children may bring in their snacks and lunches? Why?

Question by : Is it fair for schools to restrict the kinds of foods children may bring in their snacks and lunches? Why?
Some schools only sell low fat and zero calories food, in order to keep students healthy or whatever reason. Do you agree with it? Why or why not?

Best answer:

Answer by ❧ Reagan
i agree to a point. people are feeding their kids three times as much as they should these days, not to mention it’s a ton of junk. at least the school is doing SOMETHING. i don’t agree that they shouldn’t allow kids to eat what they bring, that’s going a little too far.

as for the school actually providing a healthy alternative, though – good job. i wish more parents would. maybe then so many kids wouldn’t be obese. YES, OBESE.

Fair Food: Growing a Healthy, Sustainable Food System for All

Fair Food: Growing a Healthy, Sustainable Food System for All

A host of books and films in recent years have documented the dangers of our current food system, from chemical runoff to soaring rates of diet-related illness to inhumane treatment of workers and animals. But advice on what to do about it largely begins and ends with the admonition to “eat local or “eat organic.”

Fair Food is an enlightening and inspiring guide to changing not only what we eat, but how food is grown, packaged, delivered, marketed, and sold. Oran B. Hesterman shows how our system’s dysfunctions are unintended consequences of our emphasis on efficiency, centralization, higher yields, profit, and convenience–and defines the new principles, as well as the concrete steps, necessary to restructuring it. Along the way, he introduces people and organizations across the country who are already doing this work in a number of creative ways, from bringing fresh food to inner cities to fighting for farm workers’ rights to putting cows back on the pastures where they belong. He provides a wealth of practical information for readers who want to get more involved.
