Many people are familiar with the pharmaceutical company I work for because of a certain saying at the end of commercials for AstraZeneca (AZ) products. At the end of every AZ advertisement, it says, if you can’t afford your medications AstraZeneca may be able to help you.
I am always looking for another opportunity to draw attention to matters of the heart especially as it pertains to women’s heart health. I found the perfect occasion, Tuesday, September 29 is World Heart Day.
The World Heart Federation Day is part of an international campaign to spread awareness about heart disease and stroke prevention. World Heart Day was founded in 2000 to inform people around the globe that heart disease and stroke are the world’s leading causes of death, claiming 17.3 million lives each year.
I had a sweet birthday! All because I celebrated my birthday in Hershey, Pennsylvania, the sweetest place on earth. I wanted to commemorate my momentous milestone occasion with relaxing and sweet memories.
Stop Googling your symptoms! Is it time to go see that medical professional? It troubles me when I learn of people who have illnesses in advanced stages. Why ignore signs and symptoms? Since the advent of the internet, we obviously have no excuse to not have access to medical information.
Although I don’t possess an advanced degree in medicine, I believe my nearly 18 years in the pharmaceutical industry has afforded me knowledge. Remember the old cliché knowledge is power.
Information is power when used correctly. One can arm themselves when signs or symptoms develop but review with a qualified medical professional.
In case you don’t recall at this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the May 4 Costume Institute Benefit Gala, Rihanna was queen of China. I never paid attention to this red carpet event probably not until I started to attend the Costume Institute exhibits three years ago when my daughter moved to New York City. I say Rhianna was looking east for her fashion inspiration for this year’s Met Costume Ball’s Exhibit China: Through the Looking Glass.
Ce quelle heure est il? Every new season brings a hot new list of fabulous clothes to wear. The food industry is no different in bringing new seasonal treats. Even though autumn doesn’t officially start for a few more weeks. Word on New York City streets is, It is time to try the get reacquainted with MacarOn Café flavors! You may recall my first encounter with these delicious treats. In my best french accent, I say, Qui qui to tasting my surprise shipment from New York City.
All tell-tale signs that the season is changing are here: the farmers markets are selling mums, the crisp temperatures in the morning and late evenings, ragweed season started. Not to mention, the sun now sets around 7:45 p.m.
And even though I see fall creeping in with acorns already falling from the oak trees (during my 13,000 steps a day walks through my neighborhood), there is still plenty of time to #SeeSummerBetter.
Thanks to Warby Parker.
2015 marks nearly 18 years working in the pharmaceutical industry. During that nearly 20 year span of time, I developed a vested interest in the healthcare especially as it pertains to women.
What I love about my job is that I do not sit in an office all day. I can’t complain about not getting fresh air and sunshine everyday. During my annual physical earlier this year, my complete blood count (CBC) showed I have an insufficient level of vitamin D. We hear all the time about the benefits of being outside in the sunlight. From my research for my personal challenge, please read on to see why Vitamin D is the mighty D.
Anyone else lured into online discount deals offered by Living Social? I was! A photography class offered by the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center was a sure shot (pun intended) for me.
