DON’T skip the doctor
In addition to an annual physical and gynecological checkup, be in the know on which health screenings are recommended for your age group. Some screenings require a doctor’s referral. Need a physician? Watch profile videos and find a doctor that’s right for you at rushcopleymedicalgroup.com.
DO skip the diet soda
A recent study found that postmenopausal women who drink two or more diet drinks a day are more likely to have diabetes, high blood pressure, and a higher BMI than those who consume diet drinks in moderation or not at all. Find flavored water recipes to swap your soda with in this month’s Healthy Connections. You can also check out these water recipes.
