Kimberly-Clark has launched a new online program - the HAI WATCHDOG* Community - where healthcare providers can discuss best practices for defeating HAIs. The goal is to help eliminate these often preventable infections through discussion and education. The HAI WATCHDOG* Community allows members to start discussions, post photos, videos and even enter the 2010 HAI WATCHDOG* Awards. Entering the awards program not only allows healthcare providers to share and learn from each other, but also gives contest participants the opportunity to be rewarded for their efforts with an educational grant. Here's a microsite which explains everything and how you can help lead the fight against HAIs whether you're a consumer or a healthcare organication.

But some people are at greater risk for the disease. · People with a personal or family history of benign colorectal polyps. · People with a personal or family history of colorectal cancer. · People with a personal or family history of inflammatory bowel disease -ulcerative colitis or Crohn's. · People with a personal or family history of ovarian, endometrial or breast cancer. · People of African American and Hispanic descent, who are often disgnosed at a later stage of the disease. · Men and women over the age of 50. 6 Steps to Lowering Your Risk of Colorectal Cancer 1.

Last year, I had a colonoscopy, which was given by Dr. Charles Baughman. While discussing my prescriptions and supplements, we discovered we were both taking strontium for better bone health, and he gave me tips for adding vitamins D3 and Ultra K2 to make it more effective for my osteoporosis. From there, we began to establish a warm business relationship. I discovered he was opening a new practice in Peoria, on the outskirts of Phoenix, Arizona, in the field of Age Management Medicine (also called Anti-Aging Medicine). During our visits, as we worked on some documents for his new business, I learned more about nutritional supplements. I began listening to his ideas, and decided to add other vitamin supplements to my diet. When I did so, my energy level increased significantly. It's been a year since I began taking these vitamins, and I'm so grateful for that extra energy. No wonder, really. Dr. Baughman's knowledge of the human system is powerful, and he is passionate about helping people live life to the fullest. I've enjoyed learning about his ideal patients, men and women in their 30s and 40s who are concerned about some of the changes taking place in their bodies. Hormones mostly. Later, Dr. Baughman hired me to do a website makeover. His website is at http://www.BaughmanAgeManagement.com, and I've learned a great deal by working on all of his content. And his wife, Priscilla, offers some dandy healthful recipes in the Cami's Recipes section. I'm impressed with Dr. Charles Baughman. He is a wise, knowledgeable physician who chooses to work in the field of preventive medicine. He doesn't promise the sun, moon, and stars. He's just thorough, analytical, highly skilled relative to the human body, and passionate about helping people get their lives back. If you live in the Phoenix area and are looking for a solid Age Management Medicine/Anti-Aging physician, you'll do well to contact Dr. Baughman. And he even helps old people like me feel more energetic.
