June 19th is World Sickle Cell Awareness Day

Were you aware that June 19th is World Sickle Cell Awareness Day? In fact, June 19th has been set aside as World Sickle Cell Awareness Day for more than a decade. Beginning in 2008, World Sickle Cell Awareness Day has been observed on a yearly basis in order to help boost the general public’s fund of knowledge and increase awareness of Sickle Cell Disease (SCD).

In addition, the World Sickle Cell Awareness Day observance brings some much needed attention to the painful, time-consuming battles that the afflicted people and their loved ones go through on a regular basis. SCD affects millions of individuals globally, including both adults and children. In the United States, nearly 100,000 individuals are afflicted with SCD.

SCD, the most prevalent form of a genetically inherited blood disorder that causes the shape of red blood cells to be abnormally crescent-shaped like a sickle, is a potentially lethal disease process. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), SCD is one of the leading causes of early death among children under the age of five in multiple African countries.

Healthy people who are not affected by SCD have normal, round, dome-shaped red blood cells that possess enough flexibility to move swiftly across small blood vessels without causing blockages. The abnormal hemoglobin that characterizes SCD leads to sickle ‘C’-shaped red blood cells. Sickle-shaped cells are inflexible and often become stuck in small blood vessels, resulting in occluded blood flow, blood clots, chronic pain and infections.

The blood clots that form in the bodies of people with SCD can lead to horrendous pain in many areas such as the hands, feet and trunk. The occluded blood flow can also result in damage to the bones, muscles and organs (WHO, 2017). SCD sufferers frequently have fatigue, weakness, tiredness and pallor. They sometimes seem to have a pale or ashen appearance and the whites of their eyes and skin often have a yellowish undertone.

To observe World Sickle Cell Awareness Day, people can use the hashtags #ConquerSCD!, #WorldSCDawarenessDay and #WorldSCDay to spread awareness about the burdens of sickle cell disease on social media outlets such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. People can also visit local a children’s hospital due to the reality they may encounter one or more chronically ill children who have been hospitalized because of SCD.

June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month

Screenshot 2019-06-09 at 9.00.24 AM

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. In other words, the month of June is the perfect time of the year to show unwavering support for the millions of unfortunate sufferers globally who are afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia. The month of June is also a prime time to acknowledge caregivers for the diligent work they do behind the scenes for those struggling with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.

According to the UCSF Memory and Aging Center (2019), dementia is a general term that describes any disease process that causes changes in memory skills and/or thinking skills that is severe enough to impair an individual’s daily functioning. Some aspects of daily functioning that can be profoundly affected by dementia include routine tasks such as driving, grocery shopping, managing household finances, maintaining employment, communication, and so forth.

In addition, multiple types of dementia are in existence. The most common type of dementia is Alzheimer’s dementia, better known as Alzheimer’s disease.  The part of the brain that contributes to the formation of new memories tends to be affected very early on in the Alzheimer’s dementia disease process, and this is one of the reasons why short-term memory loss is normally one of the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s (UCSF Memory and Aging Center, 2019).

Since June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, what can people do to show their support for the millions of persons who suffer with dementia, as well as their brave caregivers? There are a number of actions people can take during the month of June to show support and spread awareness regarding the truly devastating Alzheimer’s disease epidemic. Some ideas to display steadfast support for dementia sufferers and their devoted caregivers have been listed below.

  1. Wear purple to show support for the themes and purpose that revolve around Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. Purple is the official color.
  2. Offer to volunteer at a memory care center or nursing home that specializes in dementia and memory care issues. These residents often enjoy volunteers.
  3. Utilize the hashtags #EndAlzheimers and #EndAlz on social media outlets such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to spread awareness.
  4. Participate in a walk to end Alzheimer’s disease. These walks are organized and held in more than six hundred communities across the United States yearly.
  5. Discuss preventive and protective techniques. Measures such as regular exercise, healthy eating, low alcohol intake, ample rest, maintenance of good sleep/wake cycles, stress reduction, and social engagement are all excellent ways to potentially prevent Alzheimer’s disease and practice self care at the same time.
  6. Do not forget about the myriad of other health problems that have a detrimental impact on the brain. Illnesses that can negatively affect the brain, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol, need to be treated if present (UCSF Memory and Aging Center, 2019).

Choosing a Healthcare Career

Screenshot 2019-06-07 at 2.23.00 PM

Let’s face it: the choices we make tend to play an integral role in our day to day lives. Also, no one can deny that some choices definitely carry more long-term significance than others. For instance, the choice to have turkey bacon and lightly scrambled eggs for breakfast has less long-term fallout than the decision to obtain higher learning or job training. In other words, some of the choices we make can have a profound impact on our outcomes in life.

An individual should always proceed with caution when making decisions. In addition, important lessons can be gleaned from each choice that an individual has made. One choice that many people make is the option to train or retrain for a new career. Many questions arise that revolve around this monumental decision. Why do I want a new career? Which career path do I choose? Which school do I attend? How much will this cost? How will this decision affect the people around me?

Career training might not be a matter that requires decision-making on a daily basis for most people. Nonetheless, multiple aspects exist that contribute to the choices we make with regards to our jobs and/or careers. The choice to enter a certain field or industry can lead to either a lifetime of rewards or many years of major headaches. Since most people spend approximately one-third of their lives on the job, it is crucial to work in a field that is enjoyable and stable.

In general, the majority of individuals cannot go wrong by choosing to pursue a career in the healthcare industry. Jobs in the healthcare field are plentiful and offer perks such as steady pay, career mobility, educational progression, and opportunities to advance. For example, a certified nursing assistant (CNA) can return to school to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN), registered nurse (RN), or physician (MD). Thus, the choice to enter the healthcare field to become a CNA is extremely wise.

By examining the variety of healthcare career choices that can be made and paying close attention to the benefits and drawbacks associated with each, the major task of making a final decision on medical field job training can become a much more informed process. The potential lessons a person can learn by making deliberate career training choices often plays an enormous part in how future encounters will be managed in relation to the employment marketplace. Choose wisely!
