  • HEALTHY TODAY | Concussions
    Now that football season is in full swing, the conversation about head injuries and sports is on many people’s minds. While football gets a lot of attention for concussions, the truth is concussions can occur in any sport or physical activity. 
  • Many years ago, our country designated 65 years of age to be our customary retirement; this was many years before life expectancies increased to 80-plus years of age. Reaching age 65 is still a milestone. It may be surprising to you, but every day, 10,000 baby boomers turn 65.  
  • NEST (North East Seattle Together), which strives to build intergenerational communities, will have its first Northeast Seattle Resource Fair on Saturday, Oct. 11, at Aljoya Thornton Place (450 N.E. 100th St.), from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

  • GUEST COLUMN | Preventing foot, ankle injuries in fall sports
    As the fall sports season begins, parents rush to ensure that they have the best gear for a successful season. But more importantly, parents must prepare their kids for a safe season as well. 
  • HEALTHY TODAY | E-cigarettes: A double-edged sword for public health
    E-cigarettes are marketed as a healthy alternative to tobacco smoking — a way to reduce cigarette consumption or even quit smoking. It sounds promising, so why the controversy? 
  • AGING WITH CARE | Scammers target trusting seniors
    In caring for the aging, I confront a multitude of issues. One of the most troublesome is the financial and emotional exploitation of seniors. It baffles me how a person can stoop so low that he/she would exploit our most vulnerable and most honored citizens. 
  • The University Family YMCA (5003 12th Ave. N.E.) will offer free classes for children and adults during its Fun and Fitness Families Week, which runs Monday, Sept. 15, through Friday, Sept. 19.

  • Neighborcare Health will break ground and plant trees on Friday, Sept. 5, at 10 a.m. at 10501 Meridian Ave. N. Sen. David Frockt (46th District) and Neighborcare Health executive director Mark Secord will speak during a brief program. 
  • The Seattle Animal Shelter will host a pet licensing and vaccination clinic from 3 to 6 p.m. on the fourth Friday of each month, beginning Aug. 22. 
  • HEALTHY TODAY | School nutrition
    It may seem like summer just started, but back-to-school is just a couple weeks away. Transitioning back to a school schedule — such as getting back on a regular sleep cycle and doing nightly homework — can take weeks. 
  • AGING WITH CARE | Set up a supportive network
    Due to aging baby boomers, seniors are the largest growing sector of our population. Every day, 10,000 baby boomers turn 65. This is the generation that was known to have said, “Don’t trust anyone over 30!”

  • HEALTHY TODAY | Take care of your feet this summer
    Whether you stay local and take a hike to enjoy the breathtaking views of the Pacific Northwest, visit a theme park or take a vacation out of town, there’s a good chance that there will be a lot of walking involved. 
  • I feel it is truly a blessing when an aging person continues to have sharp memories, can enjoy a good conversation and has rock-solid reasoning skills.
