Here is a monthly health and wellness calendar with links to health and wellness resources

for you to plan your New Year's resolution action items to take care of your health:


National Blood Donor Month


American Red Cross


Cervical Cancer Awareness Month


In the United States, one person every two seconds needs blood.

You can give blood every 56 days and it normally takes about 15 minutes.


American Heart Month



Diabetes Awareness Month


Cancer Awareness Month


The National Cancer Institute provides A-Z information about all kinds of cancers.

You can find the latest cancer research studies, facts and statistics about different kinds

of cancer by select groupings, and additional resources for the treatment and risk reduction

for certain types of cancer.


Healthy Vision Month


You should have your eyes examined at least every two years or more often if your

doctor recommends it. There are many ways to protect your vision like wearing sunglasses,

 using a non-glare screen on your computer monitor, wearing safety goggles during sports

or around hazardous work environments, and using adequate lighting while reading.


Home Safety Month


June is the time for you to do some home safety evaluations and some home safety

precautionary action steps. Repair guardrails and patio railings that are lose or rotting.

Make sure slippery surfaces are covered with non-skid tape. Keep you home, garage,

closets, sheds, and play areas like yards, free of hazardous debris and chemicals that

are within reach of children. Place a screen over pool drains so children's hair does not

get sucked in and tangled in the drain. Replace the batteries and light bulbs in nightlights,

fire alarms, and flashlights. For more home safety tips, visit the web site above.


Summer Sun Safety Month

Did you know that one American dies every hour from skin cancer?



Immunization Awareness Month


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regularly publishes a vaccine schedule

 for infants, children, teens, young adults, older adults, travelers, and vaccines needed

for adverse safety events. Optional vaccines, like the vaccine for the prevention of cervical cancer,

are also explained at the CDC web site above.


Take A Loved One to the Doctor Month

Grandparents Day September 13


As people age, it becomes more difficult to remember and explain health and wellness concerns

with their doctor. It also becomes difficult to elderly people to understand any instructions their

doctor is giving them. Take time to help an elderly loved one by writing down questions they have

 for their doctor. Accompany them to the doctor and keep a journal of the doctor's instructions

 written in simple language. Keep your elderly loved one's doctor contact information on the refrigerator

 or by the phone in case your loved one needs to call with additional questions.


National Dental Hygiene Month


Take it from the American Dental Hygienist's Association: fluoride is good for your teeth.

Click here to see more facts about how fluoride helps prevent tooth decay.

Did you know that you should start taking your child to the dentist at around age one? Your teeth are the only part of the human body that if taken care of, will not deteriorate. Ask your dentist about sealant

applications to protect the chewing surfaces of your child's teeth. Also learn about baby bottle tooth decay,

which occurs when teeth are exposed to sugar-containing liquids for long periods of time.


Diabetes Month


Diabetes in children is a national crisis. If your child has any of the following type 2
diabetes symptoms,

you should see your family doctor right away:

Frequent urination
Increased fatigue
Excessive thirst
Extreme hunger
Blurry vision
weight loss


Stress Reduction Month


The holidays are always a stressful time of year. Whether you suffer from stress, anxiety,

or a variety of other health and wellness disorders that interfere with your holiday season,

you can get help. Remember to take some extra time for yourself each day during the holiday season.

Do something that is only for you. Do not plan more than you can accomplish. Plan healthy meals

and snacks over the holidays. If you need additional information about ways to handle stress,

visit the American Psychological Association link above and talk to your family doctor.
