first posted July 2 2014



Last year  I was involved in a Fundraiser for Gerdine Graham  Foundation, a fundraiser for Leukemia And we will be doing it  again on March 18, 2016.

My original post  was regarding letting individuals know about the importance of giving blood. Especially at a time when popular Reggae artist J Capri was in urgent need of  blood. 

 J Capri Lost her battle and passed away December 3, 2015,  my prayers are with her  Family AND friends. 



Awareness regarding the importance of donating blood has not been covered well within the Caribbean, and other ethnically diverse Communities.     As your advocate,  I felt it necessary to bring you up to speed on the facts about donating blood. DID YOU KNOW  that there are over 80 diseases that require Blood and stem cells? The goal is to reach  out to our  community  and get you all  involved in a vital process that is needed to help  individuals who require Blood.  I want you to  spread the word about donating blood.What greater…

HEALTH VS FITNESS IS IT THE SAME THING? GET THE FACTS

Image
Hello, all it's your Your Health and Social  Advocate here,  I would like to have a candid discussion  about fitness vs Health. I  appreciate all of  my readers and I wanted to say thank you  for reading my blog.  


Health literacy has been defined as:“The ability to access, understand, evaluate and communicate information as a way to promote, maintain and improve health in a variety of settings across the life-course” (Rootman & Gordon-El-Bihbety, 2008, p. 11).

Lower health literacy leads to the ineffective use of services, poorer health due to lack of understanding of health problems and treatment, and increased frequency of hospitalization 


As your health care advocate, it is important for me to take the lead in providing health information,   Family Health and Literacy is emerging as a growing concern throughout the world, but of course with my 15 years of Nursing experience, this is becoming more evident than ever. For many, accessing and understanding health information and s…
