Episode #138 was highlighted by valuable information about Medicare Open Enrollment; Stroke Awareness and Prevention; and “Good News” coming from two familiar guests.
We were honored to have Dr. Paul Harlan Janda as a guest. He is one of the most respected neurologists in the Las Vegas Valley. His educational background includes Stanford University, UC Berkeley and Touro University Los Angeles. He also completed a Law Degree from the Boyd School of Law at UNLV. His insight about Stroke Awareness and Prevention was reinforced by both Naomi Wilson and Sharon Sanchez. Risk factors were outlined, especially the connection between Diabetes and Stroke. Be concerned with stress, sleep, weight high blood pressure and hyper-tension. Be aware if the warning signs. It is so important to listen to your body. If you feel that you may be having a stroke, call 911. Go to the hospital in an ambulance.
Significant discussion revolved around the complexity and confusion over Medicare Open Enrollment. Between now and December, Leslie Caprow will be a guest on many of our upcoming shows to point out the importance of learning about the do’s and don’ts when picking the right Medicare plan for you. Leslie encouraged listeners to call her at 702 503 0866 with any questions.
During the first half tonight Jenny Stiles announced that she had found a live kidney donor. She is in the process of scheduling immune treatments in preparation for her surgery. Jenny also promoted the upcoming Las Vegas Kidney Walk on October 22, 2017.
