Health

Often, women are the healthcare decision makers in the family and are so busy taking care of everyone else, they often forget to take care of themselves.

In an effort to encourage area women to indulge in a little “me time,” ProMedica Bay Park Auxiliary will hold a the 10th Annual Women’s Wellness Day Saturday, April 22 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the hospital, located at 2801 Bay Park Dr., Oregon. The event is intended to give attendees a little time to relax, have some fun and educate themselves on a variety of health and wellness topics.

Lucas County Children Services will sponsor activities to raise awareness that April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

LCCS encourages Lucas County residents to participate in “Wear Blue Day” on April 12 to raise awareness about child abuse. Now in its sixth year, the initiative urges people from all walks of life to wear blue on this day to show their support for keeping kids safe from abuse or neglect. 

LCCS is asking people to post photos of themselves wearing blue on April 12 on the agency’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/LucasCountyChildrenServices, to tweet their photos using the hashtag #WearBlue or to email images to information@co.lucas.oh.us.

 

Paint Your World Purple

All area residents are invited to participate in a Virtual 5K in support of the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Ottawa County.

As the weather begins to warm, and we start getting the itch to be outdoors more, we begin to look in the closets for the spring wardrobe and a change of clothing to reflect the seasonal change. And one of the critical pieces of clothing are the shoes, right?

Well, when it comes to shoes and socks, we all need to make sure that, along with everything else, these necessary fashion items, continue to fit properly. When you change or remove socks, it would behoove one to do a little inspecting of the “dogs” to make sure they, too, are in good shape.

Not only is it spring, but it is also National Foot Health Month. Before you get excited about the upcoming “sandals” season, take a few minutes to make sure your feet are, and will remain healthy. Something as simple as changing your socks can often mean the difference between healthy feet and serious problems, especially if you’re a diabetic.

Russians

Do you think the Russians tried to influence the 2016 presidential election?
