National Blood Donation Month

23 Jan

This post was originally going to be about National Blood Donation Month. I wanted to encourage you to donate blood and help those in need. But, in the wake of the Haitian Earthquake tragedy, the always important need for blood donations seems even more urgent.

There I was, getting ready for work this morning as CNN told the story of a 15 day old baby who’s mother was killed in the earthquake, her father was too distraught to leave the house, and her uncle was literally running through the streets yelling for a doctor who could tend to the baby’s head injury. Doctor and reporter, Sanjay Gupta tended to her, but her story is one of literally millions right now.

Knowing that this month is National Blood Donation Month, I thought, surely blood donations are needed for Haiti. However, I discovered that is not the case. All blood requests at the present time are being met. Of course at the local level, there is always a need for blood, and I encourage you to donate this month, but I couldn’t help but wonder if the coincidence of a publicized month of donation requests could be helping with the fulfillment of blood needs in Haiti. Perhaps in a time of despair and need, our simple American publicity has actually been timely and useful.

While donation requests are currently being met, if you would like to donate blood to the Haitian disaster, all blood requests are being handled through the Armed Services Blood Program. There are only 20 blood donation centers in the US, but if you live near one, please consider donating to through them.

National Eye Care Month

9 Jan

January is National Eye Care Month, and the stats are flying at me fast and furious! This week, I thought I’d share with you some of the interesting statistics I’ve come across.

According to the Vision Council of America (2006), of the total adult American population:

• 64.0 percent use eyeglasses
• 19.0 percent use contact lenses some of the time
• 85.6 percent use non-prescription sunglasses
• 14.0 percent use pre-made “drugstore” reading glasses
• 12.1 percent use clips for sunglasses
• 4.4 percent use computer glasses

From these statistics, it’s clear that eyewear touches the lives of nearly everyone in the United States. More than 2/3 of the U.S. population wear glasses, alone!

Eyewear is just the tip of the eye care iceberg, though. Millions of people are impacted by eye problems, injuries and diseases every year.

For instance, over the age of 40, 20 million people have a cataract in one or both eyes, and 2.2 million are affected by open-angle glaucoma. 1.8 million Americans over the age of 40 have Macular Degeneration.

Thousands of Americans encounter eye problems due to injury, as well! Of the 9,000 people injured by fireworks each year, 30% incur an eye injury, and 25% involve vision loss or blindness.

Lack of proper protective eyewear causes thousands of injuries each year. In the workplace, 2,000 workers experience job-related eye injuries each year. While playing sports, 42,000 eye injuries occur each year. But maybe most interestingly, from 1998 to 2000, eye injuries due to paintball guns rose from 545 to 1200 injuries a year—More than doubling the injury rate!

All of these statistics lead me to one conclusion. Although we often take our vision for granted, it is certainly not something to be taken lightly. This month of eye care acknowledgement certainly offers us an opportunity to pause, pay attention to what we are lucky enough to see around us, and of course, schedule an appointment with our favorite eye care professionals!

But perhaps you are one such professional already, and I am preaching to the choir! Well, then may I please direct you to the Welch Allyn Ophthalmoscope area of our website?

Scrubs Fashionista

5 Dec

I read an article a few days ago about ideas for jazzing up your scrub wardrobe. Wearing monochromatic scrubs can get rather monotonous, and after reading this article, I thought I would put my style talents to work. Since Cherokee makes great scrubs that appeal to almost everyone, I took advantage. I love Cherokee scrubs for the same reasons you probably do. They always seem to have a great fit, wash well, and there is a style for just about everything and everyone!

So without further ado, here is my attempt at working as a Scrubs Fashionista!

How about this V-Neck top in the Eco Floral Pattern with these cute straight legged cargo pants in chocolate brown?

Or check out this “keyhole” top. It looks like a classic tunic with the mild v-neck and side vents. It would look great paired with these “Touch” drawstring cargo pants in turquoise. These pants have the added benefit of being soft as can be!

Here’s another cut I really like from Cherokee—the empire waist top. Pair this top in the “Papavero” or “Modern Dot” print with these low-rise flare leg scrub pants in black and you could almost stop at a happy hour on your way home from work!

What is your favorite Cherokee inspired outfit?
