Happy New Year! Wishing you and your loved ones in 2023 and beyond!⁣

Making New Year's resolutions is easy but many of us struggle to stick with them. Use these tips to stay on track with healthier habits in 2022:
One way you can do this is by following the SMART model, which stands for Specific, Measurable,, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-oriented.

Specific. What do you plan to do? For example, perhaps your New Year’s resolution is to walk more to improve your heart health. But be even more specific so the plan is clear. For example, you plan to walk 20 minutes at lunchtime Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Measurable. You need to be able to measure your goals to see your progress. If you can mark it on your calendar or a chart, you can measure it at the end of the week to see how successful you were.

Attainable. Don’t make your resolution a goal that is too hard to reach. Make your goal a series of small steps so that the end goal is easier to achieve.

Realistic. Only set goals you know you will be able to achieve. Instead of beginning as a new runner (or someone who is recovering from a medical event) with a resolution of running a marathon, you may want to start with one mile and set incremental goals from there.

Time-oriented. Pick a time frame for completing your goal. It helps to have an end in sight, and preferable a relatively short one. If your New Year’s resolution is a long-term goal, are there interim goals you can establish to give you successes along the way?
We wish you and your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday season!

We wish you and your loved ones a happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving! Today, we’re sharing some of the reasons why we’re thankful.

Tulane Health System employees donated hundreds of pounds of non-perishable food items to Second Harvest Food Bank - Feeding South Louisiana. We used some of the cans to create a food sculpture. Gumbo isn’t just a tasty New Orleans soup; it’s essentially an edible metaphor for the people and culture of New Orleans and a perfect visual representation of this year’s Tulane Food Drive theme – A Heart of Service. Gumbo is a diverse blend that feeds many and brings warmth, flavor, and nourishment, and that is what Tulane Health System employees seek in serving our patients and community.
? November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer is the second most common type of cancer (not counting skin cancer) and the leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S.

We are proud to announce that Tulane Health System was this year's TOP fundraising company for the New Orleans area Heart Walk! And our Tulane Lakeside team was the overall top fundraising team, collecting more than $5,000! Thank you to everyone who donated and came out on a cold, rainy morning to walk with us.
Savoring a delicious Thanksgiving meal with loved ones is a cherished tradition for many of us. Fortunately, your spread can be both scrumptious and healthy.

When it comes to preparing nutritious dishes, you don't have to sacrifice flavor. Simple ingredient swaps and different cooking methods can add nutritional value while keeping meals tasty.

Here are three Thanksgiving recipes to freshen up your feast: https://bit.ly/3XjlXf9

? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1 in 10 Americans have diabetes and about 1 in 5 people with diabetes don't even know they have it. Learn more about the A1C test, an important screening tool for prediabetes and diabetes.

? You don’t have to be certified in CPR or engage in mouth-to-mouth contact to save the life of someone who collapses from sudden cardiac arrest.

The American Heart Association - CPR & First Aid has simplified recommendations so that almost any bystander can perform CPR on an adult using a hands-only method.

Watch our video to learn how you can save a life using hands-only CPR.
? Flu season can last until May. Doctors recommend that anyone 6 months or older get a flu shot each year. This lowers your chances of getting the flu and reduces your symptoms if you get it.
