Influencer Inspires Women to Live Healthy and Active Lifestyles That Center Around Family

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 18, 2020 / Stress can significantly deteriorate the physical, mental, and emotional health of an individual. Some choose to take the more chaotic and busy route due to the mistaken notion that contentment and success can only be achieved this way.

Megan Call, a lifestyle influencer, disagrees with the status quo and firmly believes that individuals can live a healthy and active lifestyle with their families. Their young little family lives in the beautiful North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. She and her husband work from home through their influencer business.

With Facts Ahead of Politics, Family Medicine Wins

Before our pandemic summer swings toward what threatens to be a chaotic fall election, I want to recognize an encouraging family medicine victory this season.

On June 30, Oklahomans voted to expand Medicaid, potentially giving some quarter-million Sooner State residents increased access to affordable health care. It’s a timely win, given the shattering effects of COVID-19 on public health and employment.

And contributing to it was the Oklahoma AFP,(okafp.org) which counted among its resources data and materials from the AAFP’s Center for State Policy — marshalled for what turned out to be a swift drive.

“One thing we ran into was not knowing whether expansion would be on the ballot,” Oklahoma AFP Chapter Executive Kari Ames Webber told me this week. “Then we were in a two-month crunch once it got on the ballot.”

Gov. Kevin Stitt, a Republican, was pushing for his own health care plan but vetoed

Family Medicine Specialty

In the increasingly fragmented world of health care, one thing remains constant: family physicians are dedicated to treating the whole person. Family medicine’s cornerstone is an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship focusing on integrated care.

Unlike other specialties that are limited to a particular organ or disease, family medicine integrates care for patients of all genders and every age, and advocates for the patient in a complex health care system.

The AAFP represents 136,700 physicians and student members nationwide. It is the only medical society devoted solely to primary care. Family physicians conduct approximately one in five office visits — that’s 192 million visits annually – 48 percent more than to the next most visited specialty.
