Monday, June 22nd Fort HealthCare welcomed the event, “Girls Talk – Adolescence to Womanhood” for the first time. Our local women’s health physicians spoke about topics pertaining to what it truly means to be healthy through the adolescent stages of life. Having had open discussion, physicians answered questions about any and all young women’s health needs over healthy snacks and beverages provided by Fort HealthCare. During the seminar, our providers discussed body image including: the nature of puberty, the importance of healthy eating, body changes, as well as preventative care, and how to better enhance the patient provider relationship. Everyone had a nice time, spoke about important health issues regarding women’s health, and enjoyed speaking with their trusted physicians and getting to know one another better. Thank you to those that attended and participated in this event, making it relevant, useful, and engaging. It was a real treat to see so many ladies join us for our first Girls Talk event. We look forward to seeing you at future talks and sharing new ways for women of all ages to continue healthy lifestyles.

Safe fun in the in the sun!

A sunscreen protects from sunburn and minimizes suntan by absorbing UV rays. Using sunscreens correctly is important in protecting the skin. Consider the following recommendations:

Choose a sunscreen for children and test it on your child’s wrist before using. If your child develops skin or eye irritation, choose another brand. Apply the sunscreen very carefully around the eyes.

A sunscreen protects from sunburn and minimizes suntan by absorbing UV rays. Using sunscreens correctly is important in protecting the skin. Consider the following recommendations:

Choose a sunscreen for children and test it on your child’s wrist before using. If your child develops skin or eye irritation, choose another brand. Apply the sunscreen very carefully around the eyes.

Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen that filters out both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays.

Apply sunscreens to all exposed areas of skin, including easily overlooked areas, such as the rims of the ears, the lips, the back of the neck, and tops of the feet.

Use sunscreens for all children over 6 months of age, regardless of skin or complexion type, because all skin types need protection from UV rays. Even dark-skinned children can have painful sunburns.

Apply sunscreens 30 minutes before going out into the sun to give it time to work. Use it liberally and reapply it every two hours after being in the water or after exercising or sweating. Sunscreens are not just for the beach – use them when you are working in the yard or participating in sports.

Use a waterproof or water-resistant sunscreen and re-apply after swimming or sweating heavily.

Use of a sunscreen with SPF of 20 to 30 offers substantial protection from sunburn and prevents tanning. High SPF sunscreens protect from burning for longer periods of time than do sunscreens with lower a SPF. Talk with your older child or teenager about using sunscreen and why it’s important. Set a good example for them by using sunscreen yourself.

Teach your teenager to avoid tanning beds and salons. Most tanning beds and salons use ultraviolet-A bulbs. Research has shown that UVA rays may contribute to premature aging of the skin and skin cancer.

MIND. Body. Soul. Why Take Control?

“As long as the mind is enslaved, the body can never be free. Psychological freedom, a firm sense of self-esteem, is the most powerful weapon against the long night of physical slavery.”
