Let's admit it - we all dread the week that just passed. The "springing forward" is always harder than the "falling back." Regardless of the promise of more daylight and spring being right around the corner, Daylight Savings Time is like a mild case of jet lag - which is why my 3-, almost 4-year-old is not going to sleep until after 9 p.m. It usually takes my family at least a week to adjust and we are all a little cranky about it.
February 15… the day after Valentine's Day. If you are one of the 62% of Americans celebrate Valentine's Day, happy day-after. This is when all that Valentine's Day chocolate goes on sale! If you have small children, you spent the days leading up to Valentine's Day in a frenzy of glue and glitter.
My super-busy life began seven years ago when my dad was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. At the time, his diagnosis was really scary for our family.
The color of February is red. Not for Valentine's Day (though that is so romantic that you thought that). No, the color of February is red… for women's heart disease.

There is a large and somewhat disturbing truth in Georgia that's hard to talk about, but we must start the conversation.
Obesity is a global epidemic affecting people of all ages. According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one-third of Americans are considered obese, while Statistics Canada notes about 25 percent of Canadians are obese.
Spring is not only a beautiful time of year, but the flowers, trees and plants create a lovely and healthy environment.
YMCAs throughout metro Atlanta are seeking participants in a Type 2 diabetes management program developed at Stanford University and shown in studies to help lower blood sugar, reduce emergency room visits and improve communication with caregivers.
HEALTH is a six-letter word that most of us think we know exactly what it means. However, when you actually start talking with people about health, you find a very wide range of ideas about what it means to be healthy.
Springtime brings warmer weather, outdoor family fun, BBQs, ballgames and, for many Americans, the start of allergy season.
Health is the opposite of fear.
Ruth Walker's message to anyone who is battling breast cancer: "Don't think there is no hope."
Dr. Amanda Bauer has seen an angry patient or two in her time as a breast radiologist. Cancer is an ugly word, and breast cancer comes with its own weight, so emotions can run high. But when they do, Bauer is unfazed. She has a secret weapon.
The Women's Diagnostic Center is offering mammograms at a reduced cost during October and November.
Most screening mammograms include two views of each breast taken from different angles. Diagnostic mammograms involve taking more views than screening mammograms. Even if you have a lump in only one breast, pictures will be taken of both breasts. This is so the breasts can be compared and so that the other breast can be checked for abnormalities. If you've had a mammogram before, the radiologist should compare your old mammogram to the new one to look for changes.
Since October became Breast Cancer Awareness Month almost 30 years ago, pink has most certainly found its way into the spectrum of colors - the oranges, golds and browns - associated with autumn.
