Asthma Awareness Month

May is World Asthma month. Our area has a significantly higher prevalence of child asthma compared to other rural counties in Ohio.

Do you know if your child or someone in your family has asthma? Asthma is a disease that affects the lungs. Symptoms include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest pain or pressure. It can be triggered by viruses, allergies, particles in the air and other factors. Asthma can be life threatening if not managed properly.

Genesis Lung Services can help you recognize the risk factors and identify lifestyle modifications to manage asthma.

It's a Stall World After All

It’s a stall world after all. Do you spend an inordinate amount of time in the bathroom stall? Overactive bladder (OAB) and other voiding disorders can keep you from doing the things you love because you constantly live in fear of being too far away from a restroom. Using the restroom so frequently can also be embarrassing.

In general, voiding disorders can affect your overall quality of life, lead to embarrassment, and force you to live in a “stall world.” Join Benjamin Gibson, M.D to learn the latest treatments for an over active bladder.

Walk With a Doc

Saturday, June 13

If you’re looking for a way to get some exercise, then come out and Walk with a Doc. The monthly sessions begin with a local doctor giving fitness tips and/or health advice then leading a 30- to 40-minute walk. You’re welcome to walk as far as you’d like. Doctors will also answer questions during the walk. The walks are the second Saturday of each month, starting at 8:30 a.m. and lasting about an hour.

For more information, call Sharon Francis, Heart & Vascular Rehabilitation, at (740) 454-4336. To find out dates and locations for the next walk, visit the “Calendar and Events” section.
