MAPA January 2020 PSA


January is Thyroid Awareness Month

Up to 20 million Americans have a thyroid condition — and up to 60 percent of them don't know it. The thyroid can be either overactive or underactive and both conditions can lead to big health problems.

Symptoms of underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) can include extreme fatigue, depression, forgetfulness, and weight gain. Symptoms of overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) can include irritability, nervousness, shaking, muscle weakness, sudden weight loss and sleeping problems.

If you are experiencing symptoms of thyroid dysfunction your PA, or other health care provider, can request a variety of lab tests to evaluate the situation.

MAPA February 2020 PSA


February is National Children's Dental Health Month

Even though tooth decay has been on the decline for the past 30 years, it is still one of the most common chronic diseases for children from age 6 to 19. Protect your children’s teeth by following these tips:

  • Have your children drink tap water that contains fluoride.

  • Avoid sugary foods and drinks especially between meals.

  • Make sure your children (over the age of 2) brush their teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.

  • For children younger than 6, watch them brush their teeth. Make sure they only use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste and always spit it out rather than swallowing it. Help your child brush until s/he has good brushing skills.

  • The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that your child visit a dentist for an initial check-up by the time they are 1 year of age.
