Helping guide young women and men into adulthood. It's a tough and sometimes thankless job - but someones gotta do it. And Girls to Women/Young Men's Health and Wellness does a great job doing just that!
That’s a wrap on #UNTHSC Grand Rounds!

For our final session yesterday, we learned from Girls to Women/Young Men's Health and Wellness as they discussed their multi-disciplinary, patient-centered approach to adolescents with obesity/overweight status.
Our doctors are taking on some of the most searched health-related questions on the Internet. This week’s question is, “What foods should be avoided with ADHD?”

There are many truths and myths on the Internet about certain foods that can help children with ADHD, but making sure children maintain a balanced diet is still a good place to start.

“Children with ADHD need nutrients and a varying array of foods,” According to Carolyn Lentzsch-Parcells, M.D.

Find out more about what foods should be avoided with ADHD in this week’s segment of “Our Doctors vs. The Internet” series.

Dear GTW/YM Health and Wellness family,

As we continue to adjust to our new normal, we just want to take a moment to remind you that we are still open 5 days a week and available to meet all your healthcare needs. Your safety (and the safety of our staff) remains our top priority. At this time, we are not allowing anyone with known COVID-19 exposure into our office (in-car screening), and anyone with respiratory symptoms is being screened before being allowed into the building. Once screening has been completed, patients are escorted directly to the exam room where they will interact with one medical assistant and one medical provider.

We are here for all of your other needs as well. If you are not sure whether or not you need to come in for an in-person appointment, just call or send a portal message! While all providers are available via telehealth, some concerns still need an old-fashioned, in-person appointment. We will accommodate you as best as we can. Please know that we’ve done our best to keep the office environment safe and COVID-19 free.

We are all in this together; thanks for your continued support!

01/30/2020

We are currently experiencing trouble with our phone system and are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience. If you are a patient and need to reach our office please send us a message via your secure patient portal. Thank you.

Did you know that last month was Men's Health Month?

"The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This month gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury."

Transitioning from Pediatrics to Adolescent Medicine - Good Life Family Magazine By Dr. Kwabena Blankson, MD | Contributor There comes a time in every young man’s life when he walks into his doctor’s office and looks around the waiting room…hears inconsolable babies and sees snotty preschoolers…takes a seat on the brightly colored giraffe table…waits for his pediatrici...

NEW BLOG POST - 3 Creative & Healthy Lunch Ideas. A consistent theme in my office is not knowing what to eat for lunch. Often times it’s stemmed from having so many rules around food that it’s difficult to come up with meals that are enjoyable. On the blog I explain what I consider necessary elements to a creative and healthy lunch, plus 3 delicious ideas simple enough to quickly assemble during the week.
