STUDENTS HELP RED CROSS BY GIVING BLOOD

Details

Wayne High School's ROTC was honoring those who give blood. On May 19, Wayne assisted the local American Red Cross in their attempt to acquire 450 units of blood. Wayne students were encouraged to donate blood in order to learn the value of giving and most importantly to save lives. Wayne's goal was to receive 100 units of blood from the students and staff.

Some activities were required to help persuade the students to achieve the 100 unit goal. The most significant was from the faculty. They...

HERE’S TO YOUR HEALTH

Details

Doctor B. ended last week's "Here's To Your Health," article by saying, "I would not say this at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, but this is not an AA meeting, it's a scientific presentation!" AA does not discuss, nicotine or any other outside issue during their meetings. Bill W and Dr. Bob promised AA was an effective solution for chronic alcoholism and that's no small matter, but all else except alcohol, is an outside issue!

HERE’S TO YOUR HEALTH

Details

The next few issues of "Here's To Your Health" came from a medical doctor's taped scientific presentation made before other professionals. The doctor's name is Dr. B from Louisville and he's still practicing medicine in Louisville, KY.

Deadly Denial: What baby boomers should know about stroke

A recent American Stroke Association survey shows that many baby boomers do not recognize all five of the major warning signs for stroke. In a February 2003 survey of 1,000 adults, the American Stroke Association found that most baby boomers do not know all the stroke warning signs and do not know what to do if someone has a stroke. They are moving closer to the age — 55 — when their own stroke risk will begin to double with each...

HERE’S TO YOUR HEALTH

Details

Continued from last week...A little bit of this or that and I could nurse a drink all night without throwing up. In no time at all I had arrived, or so I thought. I had a bunch of friends to hang around with. We did exciting things: skipping school, taking road trips, and drinking. It was great for a while. Getting hauled into the principle's office or being questioned by the police, things I would have been ashamed of before, were badges of honor. My ability to come through these events...
