Busting the Myths Around Weight Loss Medication

YourUpdateTV

Obesity is one of the most common chronic health issues in the U.S. today, and can lead to or exacerbate many other significant physical and mental health challenges, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease and depression. But GLP-1 injections are an impactful new tool that can help people on their weight loss journey. Recently, Dr. Craig Primack, the Senior Vice President of Weight Loss at Hims and Hers, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the impact of obesity, common myths surrounding weight loss medications, and personalized options that can help. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/NGNz92bi7nY Research shows that even just 5-10% of body weight loss can improve blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, joint pain, sleep apnea, and other weight-related conditions. Weight loss drugs like GLP-1 medication are not only an exciting tool in the weight loss tool belt but can help to address the challenges associated with obesity. GLP-1 injections can support healthy weight loss along with a reduced calorie diet and increased exercise. Some common myths regarding weight loss medications, include: ● Many people assume that weight loss medications are magic. Weight loss drugs can be excellent tools for decreasing hunger and therefore reducing overall calorie intake, but their effects are not instant and should be combined with a healthy lifestyle approach, including a balanced diet and regular exercise. ● People also assume that the injections are painful. The injection is a very small needle that goes just under the skin. It feels like a small pinch, and is quite painless. For the most part, people do great with self-administering GLP-1 injections. ● Lastly, many people think that weight loss drugs come with dangerous side effects. Like all medications, there is a risk of side effects, but there are really only three common side effects associated with GLP-1’s, and they are generally mild: nausea, heartburn, and constipation. The benefits of these drugs far outweigh the risks for many, especially when compared to the health risks associated with being overweight. Hims & Hers’ personalized approach means custom treatment for individual needs to minimize these side effects. Known for its holistic, personalized approach to health and wellness, Hims & Hers is now offering access to GLP-1 injections designed for affordability and effectiveness. These are the four things you should know. ● Hims & Hers’ weight loss program is tailored to an individual’s needs and includes customized medication kits or GLP-1 medication, as determined appropriate by the healthcare provider. ● The science-backed and doctor-developed program is available 100% online for as little as $199 a month. ● Through the app, a licensed healthcare provider will work with you to decide the recommended treatment, plus provide realistic nutritional tips with easy to follow snack and meal ideas. ● Hims & Hers takes the safety of each customer very seriously. The pharmacies the brand works with provide sterile, single-use syringes with each GLP-1 shipment, and products are made with active ingredients from FDA regulated suppliers. And, injection medications are shipped in cold packs for temperature control in transit in the summer weather.

Loneliness Crisis Being Faced by Older Americans: AmeriCorps Seniors Believes Volunteering Fosters Connections and Conquers Loneliness

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/dcH7-VsQaYQ Older adults are especially vulnerable to loneliness and social isolation, which can have a serious effect on health, according to a recent report issued by the U.S. Surgeon General. Chronic loneliness (persistent feelings of isolation and/or a lack of companionship) can adversely affect mental, cognitive, and physical health, general well-being and even longevity. However, there are ways to overcome loneliness and volunteering might be the answer. AmeriCorps Seniors is helping older adults form connections in their community, provide purpose and improve their lives through volunteering. After two years of volunteering with AmeriCorps Seniors, 78% of those who reported more than five symptoms of depression at the beginning of the study said that they felt less depressed two years later. Of those who first described a lack of companionship, 88% said they felt less isolated after two years. AmeriCorps is the federal agency for national service and volunteerism. AmeriCorps Seniors focuses on engaging adults ages 55 and up in service in their local communities. Through three signature programs, RSVP, the Foster Grandparent Program and the Senior Companion Program, AmeriCorps Seniors provides a space for older adults to take charge of this moment in life and use their time in impactful ways. Each year, AmeriCorps Seniors matches more than 140,000 Americans with service opportunities. For example, Shelley Brosnan, a volunteer with AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP through Volunteer Fairfax, Fairfax, Va., said, “Giving back is so very important. I’ve been volunteering for most of my adult life. Volunteering allows me to connect with my community and make it a better place. I also love the social aspects and meeting people who share my interests. We have a chance to help others and form new relationships, which has grown my social circle.” RSVP offers flexible scheduling and a diverse mix of opportunities. The Foster Grandparent Program pairs volunteers with children and youth in mentoring and tutoring relationships. Lastly, the Senior Companion Program provides a helping hand to other older adults and those with disabilities. They also support caregivers through respite services.

Comcast Announces Live American Sign Language Interpreting Services at Eight Bay Area Xfinity Store Locations

Comcast California

As part of its ongoing commitment to digital inclusion and accessibility, Comcast today announced the availability of live American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting services at eight Xfinity Store Locations in the Greater Bay Area. Customers who need ASL support can stop into any of the select Bay Area Xfinity Stores, where representatives will utilize ASL Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) to access a live interpreter provided by partner, Communication Service for the Deaf (CSD). The Retail Associate simply taps the app on the store iPad and is connected in moments via video to a live interpreter who can translate from ASL to English and vice versa as the customer and Associate converse. “We’re proud to deliver an inclusive service solution that will help more customers better interact and engage with Retail Associates representing our Xfinity Products and Services, to provide them with a much better in-store experience,” said Thomas Wlodkowski, Comcast Vice President for Accessibility. “I’m also grateful to our partners in California — who are helping to close the digital divide for more members of our disabled community by working with us on a variety of digital equity initiatives.” Comcast launched the ASL VRI service as a pilot in select stores last year; it is the first telecommunications retailer in the country to offer live, on-demand, remote ASL interpreting services in stores to better serve customers. The company is expanding the service to additional stores across the country this year. The eight Xfinity Greater Bay Area stores that offer ASL VRI service include: San Jose: 1068 E. Brokaw Rd. # 50, San Jose, CA 95131 Sunnyvale: 301 W. McKinley Ave. Suite 140, Sunnyvale, CA 94086 San Jose: 1566 Monterey Hwy #20, San Jose, CA 95110 San Jose: 1600 Saratoga Ave., San Jose, CA 95129 Palo Alto: 2825 El Camino Real #100, Palo Alto, CA 94306 Fremont: 43325 Christy St., Fremont, CA 94538 Oakland: 3070 E. 9 th St., Oakland, CA 94601 Dublin: 4104 Grafton St., Dublin, CA 94568 “As part of California School for the Deaf’s mission, we are deeply committed to providing a language rich environment that maximizes communication access in order for our students to lead fulfilling lives,” said Amy Novotny, Superintendent, California School for the Deaf. “Access to technology and connectivity builds confidence and independence, and that’s why we are excited to partner with Comcast on opportunities to close the digital divide for members of our Deaf and hard of hearing community.” The American Community Survey (ACS) estimates that 3.6% of the U.S. population is “deaf or have serious difficulty hearing.” Additionally, according to Pew Research Center, 23% of people with disabilities say they never go online, with 57% saying they do not have a home broadband connection. That’s why, through its Project UP initiative, Comcast is working to address and eliminate the unique barriers to connectivity through a series of efforts, including Internet Essentials, Lift Zones, and skill development and training. In addition to announcing this inclusive retail experience for customers, Comcast donated $60,000 in digital equity grants to community partners, San Francisco LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, California School for the Deaf, and the World Institute on Disability. These grants aim to broaden the scope of digital inclusion and accessibility to students, families, seniors, and community members. “Assistive technologies are opening doors to greater independence for folks with a range of disabilities,” said Sharon Giovinazzo Chief Executive Officer of the San Francisco LightHouse of the Blind and Visually Impaired. “These innovations truly can level the playing field. Comcast has been a valued partner in delivering technologies and supporting our efforts to promote independence, community, and equity for blind and low vision people.” “Diversity, equity and inclusion are the guiding stars of what we do here at the World Institute on Disability, and it is gratifying to see partners, such as Comcast, who also believe that equity and accessibility go hand-in-hand,” said Marcie Roth, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, World Institute on Disability. “Technology continues to evolve rapidly, and we must continue to work together to invest in solutions, which will help support people with disabilities having equal and greater access to products and services in today’s world as well as laying the foundation for greater accessibility for future generations.” About Comcast’s Accessibility Program: For more than a decade, Comcast has invested in making its products, technology, and experiences accessible to the widest possible audience while opening new doors to independence for people with disabilities. These innovations include the Large Button Voice Remote, voted USA Today’s Best Accessible Design remote in 2023, and the Xfinity Adaptive Web Remote.

Culturelle® Probiotics and Re:wild Team Up to ‘Protect the Gut Microbiome’

YourUpdateTV

A new campaign from Culturelle® Probiotics and global conservation non-profit, Re:wild, is highlighting the similarities between endangered ecosystems on Earth and the endangered ecosystem within: the human gut microbiome. Recently, Dr. Robin Moore from Re:wild, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the new initiative. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/JT_Nv2wpwrU Earth’s ecosystems are what sustain us. They are our first line of defense against emerging diseases and climate chaos, and they provide everything from clean air and water to food and medicines. But research shows that the populations of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish have declined by nearly 70% since 1970. And a loss of biodiversity can significantly disrupt an ecosystem – lowering its productivity and quality. The gut microbiome – made up of trillions of living, breathing bacterial species – is also facing a loss of biodiversity and is under constant siege from a variety of modern-day stressors, like anxiety, lack of sleep, and poor eating habits, that can put it out of balance and hinder its ability to thrive. This led the Culturelle brand to make a poignant connection between the vulnerable state of our gut microbiome and the other ecosystems of the world. The gut is a critical ecosystem — and it's at risk. Culturelle Probiotics and Re:wild have teamed up to draw attention to the similarities between the endangered ecosystems of our world and the ecosystem within – the human gut microbiome – and raise awareness on the importance of protecting biodiversity in all ecosystems, both inside and out. To learn more about the campaign, visit ProtectTheGut.com. About Dr. Robin Moore Dr. Robin Moore blends his scientific training with his passion for photography and storytelling to connect a broad audience with the urgency and opportunity for saving endangered species and critical ecosystems. Recognizing the importance of communications for challenging perceptions and changing behaviors, Robin has spearheaded innovative campaigns to raise the profile of too-often overlooked species. The Search for Lost Frogs, a global quest to find species missing for decades, attracted significant media attention and inspired the book, In Search of Lost Frogs, which was named one of The Guardian’s best nature books of 2014. Robin is an award-winning photographer and Senior Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers. The Search for Lost Species, a signature initiative of Re:wild, builds on this success. About Culturelle® Probiotics For more than 25 years, Culturelle® Probiotics have helped individuals, children and families support their health. Covering digestive, immune, feminine, and pediatric health, Culturelle® product formulations are based on science, utilizing clinically studied probiotics to support the unique benefits of each product.
