“Fitness, nutrition, mind, body and spirit are all connected,” said Hillcrest Employee Wellness Coordinator and RN, Rose Hosler. This week she provides tips for overall well-being during the holidays to help keep your weight steady while indulging.
Don't Diet: Because food temptations abound during the holidays, it is not the time to deprive yourself. It's difficult to say I'm not going to have that or I'm not going to have this, especially when you're at a party, explained RN Rose Hosler. She suggests changing your mind set from “deprivation” to “moderation.” “Just watch your portions and let go of it,” she said. Be Mindful: Take note of what you're eating. This is the time of year when people put out trays of food at parties and work. People pass by these foods and take one. Then they pass by again and take another. Then they go off to work and do the same thing. These empty-calorie foods add up, warned Hosler. If you have one or two holiday parties throughout a month and have a …

Men are particularly at risk if the breast cancer gene (BRCA2) runs in their family.
The focus of Breast Cancer Awareness efforts are focused on women -- the ribbons are pink, after all. But men can get breast cancer too. Patch sat down with a few local experts about male breast cancer: Patch: Why is it important to talk about male breast cancer? Dr. Lee: It's important because men don't think they can get breast cancer. They don't think they can receive a mammogram screening. The discussion should be focused on breaking the myths and informing people on what is fact versus fiction. Men will say to me “men can't get breast cancer.” So they tend to show up late, when the lump has been there for several months, which is usually stage 2 or later. And that means that it has already spread to the lymph nodes because they …

Brecksville-Broadview Heights athletes took part in a pilot of the app this fall.
This fall, Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School had another tool to help students on the sidelines. That tool came in the form of an iPad app created by researchers at the Cleveland Clinic to help doctors and athletic trainers spot a concussion. Brecksville-Broadview Heights was one of the districts in the pilot, which also included Solon and John Carroll University. A concussion is a complicated, “multi-symptom” event, said lead developer Jay Alberts, of the department of biomedical engineering and the Center for Neurological Restoration at the clinic. But often, people just check for memory loss after a possible concussion, asking the individual if they know what day it is. The app, called the Cleveland Clinic Concussion Assessment …
