MOST RECENT

On this day in 1883, Dr. Emily Stowe organized the now infamous meeting to gain support for the establishment of a medical college for women - laying the foundation for WCH. #wch #healthgap

Health matters and especially when it comes to voting power.

https://buff.ly/2JoitBG "Add to this negative trend the fact that mortality among the poor increases during middle age — which is when citizens generally get more involved in politics. The premature disappearance of the poor, then, occurs precisely at the moment when they would be expected to reach their “participatory peak” in society. But they don’t live long enough to achieve that milestone.

Socioeconomics, longevity and political participation mutually reinforce each other, making it especially difficult for poor Americans to gain political clout.

So it’s not just a matter of people naturally growing more conservative as they grow older. It’s also a matter of the wealthier — and more conservative — people surviving more often, and for longer." @NewYorkMag

Seriously, don't even get me started. Why is the female reproductive system so tabooed in our society?

There's this known quote I see at every women's march that reads: "Women are our Future". But why is no one talking about infertility rates increasing amongst young couples these days (I know I can definitely give a few different/good hypothesis). But if these things aren't researched and talked about, how are we suppose to truely prevent the problem. Aiming for preventative care will not only save health care cost enoromously, but it will improve so many, if not all, female lives

Honestly, I feel like women's health is never a relevant topic until they're a part of 'that' population and that needs to change

Girls, ask yourself these questions -Do you know the relationship between mammograms, bone density scans and uterine health? -Do you know the early symptoms and/or causes on 'basic' things such as yeast infection, menopause and irregular periods? -Ruling out HPV, do you know any other reason that would cause an abnormal pap test result?

Health Inequality is more of a psychological issue than anything else. And the thing that needs to be addressed in order to bridge this “Health Gap” is a change in thinking and the ways we approach our health and fitness endeavors.

We’re gonna talk a lot about the gaps in women’s health this week. These harms of these gaps impact women all around the world, and most especially those without the resources to receive quality care. We hope to bring attention to these inequalities this week, and to showcase the importance of stopping them. 💊🌡💉🔬👩🏻‍🔬👩🏾‍⚕️

Your incredible support of the innovative research at @wchospital makes it possible for us to explore questions such as this: Can smart phone apps help close health gaps?

Here, a WCH patient uses a revolutionary virtual care platform as part of her care plan, allowing her to more easily and efficiently manage her symptoms.

"Gross National Product counts air pollution and cigarette advertising, and ambulances to clear our highways of carnage.  It counts special locks for our doors and the jails for the people who break them. It counts the destruction of the redwood and the loss of our natural wonder in chaotic sprawl...
Yet the gross national product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play.  It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages, the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officials.  It measures neither our wit nor our courage, neither our wisdom nor our learning, neither our compassion nor our devotion to our country, it measures everything in short, except that which makes life worthwhile." (Robert Kennedy 1968)

This is proving to be a very interesting read!
#epidemiology #publichealth #healthandwealth #healthgap

health inequalities that can be avoided are unjust. empower people in material, psychosocial and political ways. give people freedom to lead lives they have reason to value. key is education, education of women in particular. redistribution is pro-growth. #healthgap #michaelmarmot #empowerpeople #educationofwomen #redistribution

大学病院時代一人診察6分という規則がありました。患者様の診察室に入室退室時間が6分です。カルテ記載漏れがあるといけない、予約制の為時間がずれ込むと医事課からクレーム…かなりハードな研修医時代でした。医療現場には現実の厳しさがありました。私がパーソナルの医療コーチングを目指す理由はこの現状からです。相手の目を見て話す当たり前のことが難しい医療現場、医師も疲弊しています。それでも皆使命感を持って医療に従事しています。お医者様、患者様、どちらが上でもなく常に対等な立場だと思っています。テレビ健康番組の情報に一喜一憂するより今一度ご自身の血液検査や人間ドックの結果をじっくり読んでみて下さい。

Huge day!! Playgroup shed clean out, no sleep for the toddler (😳😵) and I was just go go go. So I am sneaking in a couple of the kids whole food chews!! These babies have changed our kids pallets, they drink more water, Layla hasn’t been sick in over a year! Best part is I don’t pay for these for Layla! She is apart of our #rainbowchallenge, where she gets these amazing whole food chews for free for 4 years, with my adult order. So not only am I looking after me and bridging my own health gap, I can do it with my kids for FREE! •
Did you know that only 4% of children actually get the RDI of fruits and veggies!! I believe this because even on our best days, I find it hard to fill that gap!! •
Still have some spot left for the #rainbowchallenge this month. DM or comment below and I can send you some information 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

What’s missing in women’s health? Intimate care conversations!

That is why Aviva Woman is here. We welcome intimate topics and work toward providing you the best care we can. #loveyourself #aviva #avivawoman #shareaviva #beaviva .
