May Is Women's Health Awareness & ACTION Month. Be Empowered

MAY IS WOMEN'S HEALTH AWARENESS & ACTION MONTH. BE EMPOWERED

During the entire month of May OneWorld will bring you a series of health awareness blogs and videos to enhance your knowledge of health issues that might be specific to women.  We also want you to know that our web site is filled with beneficial information and resources to help you to navigate the health system.  Remember, knowledge is POWER only when we use it. 

http://youtu.be/STP7nep_zPA  - Listen to these doctors; take their advice.  Help yourself. Then browse the women's Center on our web site to get much more information.  Please "like" our page on Facebook, and please SHARE this information.

Before we went on the air, this first group of women sat in the studio with a group of three women doctors; they asked a wide range of questions specific to women and to their individual situations.  Although some time has passed since we recorded these two programs, the information is still valid and accurate. 

Connecticut now has Expanded Medicaid (HUSKY D); we have the Affordable Care, and we have three separate health plans for various levels of affordability.  All of these plans: Bronze, Silver and Gold contain 10 basic covered benefits as required by law under the ACA.  Some people who have signed up for coverage pay as little as $18 per month.  Of course, some people pay more according to their financial ability and their family structure.   However, there is NO REASON why anyone in CT should not have health care coverage.   While the open enrollment period is closed, if you have had a significant change in your family or life circumstance since March 31 (such as a job loss, a divorce, or you have newly moved to CT) you can still contact Access Health CT and find out how to get health insurance coverage under the ACA.  Go to the link below or call the number.

1-855-805-HEALTH (1-855-805-4325) Call and learn how you may sign up for the ACA. 

While not all illnesses can be prevented, getting regular screenings and check-ups, and knowing your family history are all important and will help to detect problems sooner.

Women’s Health Month –Part 2 is about Gynecologic Cancers with Yale Physicians (Please SHARE this Video with women you know)

Decades ago most women who developed a Gynecologic Cancer were at least in their late 40’s.  That is no longer true.  In fact, some women under the age of 30 have developed Endometrial Cancer.  Family history is important. There is also the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) which is no respecter of age.  Watch the video as Drs. Rutherford and Schwartz answer questions asked by N’Zinga Shäni and a cross-section of women from the Greater New Haven community. Take notes, and follow the information on the screen.  We hope you will benefit from this program; you can watch both videos as many times as you wish.

Making Recovery Equitable

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones joined a panel of researchers and other experts brought together by the Philadelphia Fed to discuss how government at all levels can help small businesses recover from the pandemic, and how these programs must evolve to ensure equitable recovery. The webinar is part of an ongoing series examining best practices for bringing about equity as we emerge from the crisis.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
