New Medical Home Model: Places Patient at Center of Health Care

“I finally match the way I feel inside,” says Mary Heiska-Ryan, who in real-life radiates the adage, “beautiful inside and out.” She’s lost more than 100 pounds in the past 12 months, and she continues to lose weight. “The stars were aligned right for me,” she says. Last year during a visit to Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Hartford Health Center, Heiska-Ryan asked her doctor about finding a program for weight loss. “If I could’ve done it on my own, I would’ve.”

Dressing for Your Career- No Hard and Fast Rules

The days of a closet full of formulaic matching 2-piece suits are long gone. But, what to wear instead? In my business, we dress a lot of powerful women. They understand that while they know how to run a company or a department, they don’t have the knowledge (and/or time) to dress themselves! What they do understand is that they owe it to their clients and to those they mentor to look their very best each and every day. Career dressing varies by industry. Bankers, financial advisers, and healthcare employees are in a conservative environment. Women in advertising, interior design, and real estate have more latitude in the way they dress. There is no doubt that things have become more casual in all work environments. I’d say “dress like your boss,” but I’ve seen some really powerful women dressed in power suits from the ‘80s! I subscribe to the axiom, “When in doubt, overdress.” (There’s nothing wrong and a whole lot right with being the best dressed woman in the room.)

Giving New Hope to Young Cancer Patients

A cancer diagnosis can be devastating news. It raises lots of questions and uncertainty. Simply put, it’s life changing. Dr. Nicole Longo, internist and onco-fertility point person at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) in Philadelphia, says throughout her career she has started to see a new trend; her patients are getting younger. “The patient average age is getting younger and the kinds of cancers they have are more aggressive,” she says. “For females, we’re starting to see more 25-year-olds and 35-year-olds more consistently.”

Sale Shopping: Do no harm!

It’s SALE time! And what woman doesn’t love a SALE? But, how about some due diligence before we head out in search of bargains? There is a fashion adage that says we could get rid of 80% of what’s in our closet. Horrifying, right? But, when you stop and think about it, you’ll probably be nodding your head in agreement. We tend to wear the same few pieces over and over – hopefully, in different combinations.
