The nurse aide training program (NATP) prepares students to obtain state certification as a certified nursing assistant. CNAs are vital members of the healthcare team who work under the supervision of licensed nurses to deliver basic nursing care and assistance with activities of daily living such as feeding and personal hygiene. CNAs assist clients with mobility, meal service, grooming, exercises and other aspects of care.

CNAs can be found working at a wide range of healthcare employment settings. CNAs secure employment at assisted living facilities, clinics, personal care group homes, hospitals, hospice organizations, skilled nursing facilities, managed care organizations, insurance companies, home health companies and other healthcare settings. Job openings are plentiful and expected to continue to increase due to the aging of the Baby Boomer generational cohort.

The phlebotomy technician training program prepares learners to obtain national certification as a certified phlebotomy technician (CPT), also known as a phlebotomist. Phlebotomy technicians are allied healthcare professionals who collect blood and non-blood specimens by way of blood withdrawal (venipuncture), finger and heel sticks (capillary puncture), and other methods.

Phlebotomy technicians are multi-skilled allied healthcare professionals who tend to find employment at an impressive range of healthcare settings. Phlebotomy technicians can be found working at acute care hospitals, reference laboratories, blood banks, mobile donation centers, plasma centers, clinics, multi specialty medical practices, and other types of healthcare settings.

International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking: June 26th

The International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, a global observance that takes place on the 26th day of June during each year, was started back in 1987. The overall goal of the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking is to increase awareness regarding the societal ills and other problems that often arise due to the use, trafficking and sales of illegal substances.

According to the International Narcotics Control Board (2018), the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking is an annual reminder of the significance of worldwide efforts to prevent and alleviate suffering caused by drug abuse and  trafficking as well as the importance of assuring access to controlled substances for medical and scientific use.

Drug abuse and trafficking can be terribly destructive to individuals, families, schools, communities and societies as a whole. Drug use disorders are a major public health problem. Drug addiction is a dreadful disease process that destroys peoples’ health statuses, destabilizes families, places enormous burdens on the healthcare system and causes undue strains on the limited resources of various social services agencies.

Moreover, drug abuse and trafficking can be extremely detrimental to the safety and security of people, including those who become innocent victims that get caught in the crossfire. Drug trafficking, once seen primarily as a social and criminal issue, has been transformed in recent years into a massive threat to the health and safety of people and regions (United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe, 2019).

Allied healthcare workers can have a beneficial influence on children and young people by providing education on the risks of illegal drug use, identifying risk factors, noticing risky behaviors and intervening in a timely manner to help prevent and/or treat substance abuse issues before they burgeon into more serious problems. Thus, people who work in the healthcare system are integral to the fight against illicit drugs.

International Widows Day: June 23rd

June 23rd had been designated as International Widows Day by the United Nations back in 2010. International Widows Day is a worldwide observation that takes place each year on the 23rd day of June to increase awareness of the onslaught of problematic issues that many widows tend to experience in various countries around the world after their husbands die.

Widows in the United States and in other countries around the world often face a number of traumatizing challenges in regards to to their health statuses, finances, social situations and personal safety. Therefore, it is time to bring the plights associated with widowhood into the spotlight on a worldwide scale. After all, knowledge is power. The more people know, the more they can potentially help.

Some widows end up living in abject poverty soon after their husbands have died. Poverty has a profound impact on a widow’s health status. According to the World Health Organization (2019), poverty creates poor health since it forces people to live in squalid environments that make them sick, without decent shelter, clean water or sufficiently adequate sanitation.

In certain countries with more traditional societies, widows may be denied the rights to inheritance of marital assets such as money and land. All too frequently, widows and their children are forced out of their marital homes, shunned, stigmatized and subjected to acts of personal violence such as sexual assault and battery. Widows need to be empowered instead of marginalized.

The overarching point of International Widows Day is to initiate positive changes that will lead to full rights in widowhood, more research, elimination of violence, minimization of discriminatory practices and reduced levels of poverty inflicted upon widows and their families. Another goal of International Widows Day is to formulate widespread policies that substantively deal with the negative issues suffered by widows.

Public Service Day: June 23rd

Public Service Day is a worldwide observation that takes place on the 23rd day of June every year. The date of June 23rd also provides the public with a very opportune chance to show their heartfelt appreciation of public servants for all their hard work, diligent efforts and steadfast devotion to the continual betterment of the communities where they live and serve.

To recognize the hard work of the world’s vast number of public service workers such as nurses, schoolteachers, firefighters and city administrators, the United Nations created the Public Service Day observation back in 2002. It is an unfortunate reality that, at times, the amazing contributions of public servants can go unrecognized by the very same individuals that seem to benefit the most from their selfless actions.

Without the assertive actions and strategies made by those in the public service field, the initiation of positive changes and advantageous policies would be slow to come. Also, the public’s lives and well-being simply would not be nurtured. In essence, June 23rd is the perfect day to thank the hard-working public servants in your city who work to enhance the lives of the people in their local communities.

 

International Day of Yoga is June 21st!

Friday, June 21st is when the International Day of Yoga is observed. Since yoga tends to be spectacularly outstanding for peoples’ minds, bodies and spirits, an entire piece has been devoted to the International Day of Yoga. The primary purpose of the International Day of Yoga is to boost awareness on a global scale regarding the myriad of benefits connected with regularly practicing yoga.

For those that may still be unaware, yoga is a series of multifaceted exercises that work together to combine many physical, mental and spiritual elements. The word ‘yoga’ is derived from Sanskrit and means to join or unite, representing the union of body and consciousness (United Nations, n.d.).

The inclusion of yoga into a daily routine can improve an individual’s health status, increase strength levels, enhance flexibility, and assist in improving posture and breathing. Practicing yoga on a routine basis can also help adherents to reduce stress levels, minimize depression and control anxiety symptoms while enhancing concentration and mental clarity.

Yoga exercises had originated in India many generations ago before subsequently being introduced to the Western world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The number of yoga adherents, also known as “yogis,” began to sharply increase in the 1980s and has been growing rapidly each succeeding year. The United Nations (UN) finally declared June 21st as the International Day of Yoga back in December 2014.

The theme for the fifth annual International Day of Yoga is climate change.
