According to Parkinson.org, every year approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease but, because there’s no specific test for it, Parkinson's is one of the most difficult diseases to diagnose. Common early warning signs include shaking or tremor at rest, a change in voice such as increasing softness or mumbling and lack of facial expression. ⁣

Watch our video to learn more about what you can do if you have Parkinson’s disease.⁣

[Animation transcript: Parkinson's Awareness Month⁣

If you have Parkinson's disease, here are some important ways to manage your care...⁣

- Create a plan with your doctor or neurologist.⁣
- Look into receiving care from an occupational therapist, physical therapist or speech therapist.⁣
- Don’t stop moving! Regular exercise can delay further symptoms.⁣
- Surround yourself with support from loved ones! Social isolation can lead to depression and anxiety. ⁣

While there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, medications and other treatments can help with some of your symptoms.⁣

Be sure to check in with your doctor regularly.]

One-third of all U.S. births happen through cesarean delivery, which is also known as a C-section. During this surgical form of delivery, the baby is removed from the uterus via an incision in the abdomen.

C-sections are performed for a number of reasons, including complications during pregnancy or delivery, or certain health concerns. In some cases, C-sections are scheduled, but they can also be performed unexpectedly.

If you or a loved one is expecting a baby, here are five facts you should know about C-sections.

To learn more about a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) read our blog: https://bit.ly/3IXpAiM

If you are seeking medical attention after giving birth, it's important to let your care team know that you've recently had a baby and surgery.

#CesareanAwarenessMonth #HealthierTomorrows




[Animation transcript:⁣ 5 facts about cesarean delivery (C-sections)⁣

1. The mother will likely stay awake during surgery⁣
Most women remain awake and under regional anesthesia to numb them from the waist down.⁣
In an emergency C-section, doctors may administer general anesthesia, meaning the mother is completely unconscious. ⁣

2. C-sections are sometimes safer than vaginal deliveries⁣
Both planned and unplanned C-sections are performed to help protect mother and baby from potential complications of vaginal delivery. ⁣
Common reasons for an unplanned C-section generally include signs of fetal distress, placental abruption or cord entanglement.⁣

3. After a C-section, vaginal birth is still an option
Many women have safe vaginal deliveries following a C-section. The decision should be made in consultation with your delivery provider.⁣

4. Moms have scars after the procedure⁣
As with any procedure that involves an incision, a C-section leaves a lasting mark.⁣
The scar will become smaller and fade over time but if it’s bothersome, there are several treatment options to help minimize the appearance. ⁣

5. Recovery takes time⁣
After the procedure, women often stay in the hospital for three or four days.⁣
Most women are back to normal activities six to eight weeks after delivery.]

How often should you be screened for colorectal cancer?⁣

Evidence-based options may include a colonoscopy at 10-year intervals or a f***l immunohistochemistry test (FIT) annually.⁣

It's important to make screening a part of your health routine.⁣
