How the Youth Got Their Voice Back

26 Jul

Sorry everyone, I’ve been slammed with the International AIDS Conference these past few weeks and I haven’t had a chance to post, but I’ll make sure I post some more next week.  In the meantime some of you might be interested in my non-profit’s blog coverage of the AIDS2012 conference.  This is the first time in 20 years that the conference has returned to U.S. soil, so it’s a pretty big deal.

Specifically, you can see yours truly’s new piece about the youth movement within the HIV/AIDS movement.  GO CHECK IT OUT: http://www.smartglobalhealth.org/blog/entry/how-the-youth-got-their-voice-back/

There’s also a super short video to go with it.  I also want to take the moment to plug my organization, CSIS’ Global Health Policy Center’s website: www.smartglobalhealth.org in general, we’ve got lots of great videos and public health briefs covering every global health disease you could ever imagine!  You won’t regret it, I promise!

Till next time, keep sweating kids!

The Simplest Thing You Can Do TODAY To Improve Your Health

2 May

So it’s been a while since I wrote my last blog entry and I have a very good reason for it.  The past month I’ve been moving 3,000 miles  to our nation’s capital in Washington DC to start a new job working on global health policy.  It is a fantastic opportunity for me to get on the ground with health and see what’s really going on it our world.  So if I’m MIA for a bit it just means I’m in some really cool (and remote) place.  But I’m not here today to fill you in on my really cool job, but to talk about the simplest thing you can do to improve your health: WALK!

I was inspired to write this post after my wonderful boyfriend sent me a link to a funny or die video starring the cast of West Wing (we’re huge fans…who isn’t?).  They got back together one more time, this time for promote the importance of walking to improve your health.  See the video here:

As you can see it’s funny, but has a very serious point.  Walking for some combination that adds up to 30 minutes a day reduces your risk for many cancers, heart disease, diabetes, among others.

Now this is not new news to anyone, but hopefully through this fun and creative medium people will actually do it!  On top of daily exercise, it is a mile for me to walk to work (takes about 12 minutes), so I walk to and from work. It saves me the hassle and cost of public transportation, I get to be outside, and I know I’m helping my health.  If at all possible I encourage you to walk to work.  So what are waiting for? Get up and start walking, just like President Bartlett!

Keep Sweating!
