Vim & Vigor - Winter 2019 - GMC - 2

FROM THE EDITORIAL BOARD

BE PROACTIVE
ABOUT YOUR HEALTH
Improving wellness starts with taking control of your well-being
There comes a point when each of us learns the importance of proactive
health. For Sterling K. Brown, the celebrity featured in this issue of Vim
& Vigor, this lesson came when he was just 10 years old. That's when his
father, who struggled with type 2 diabetes, smoking and drinking, died of a heart
attack. Since then, Brown has committed to a life of lasting wellness by developing
everyday health habits and sharing those with his family.
This is just one example of how proactive behaviors can make a world of difference
in your personal health, as well as that of your family. Although we are lucky enough to
be a part of an organization that prioritizes health and well-being, that isn't the case for
everyone. That's exactly why Northside Hospital is continually striving to make health
information, educational resources and preventive health services more accessible-to
empower community members to be proactive about their health.
One example of this is our 10 Gwinnett Medical Group primary care practices that
are conveniently located across the area, from Suwanee and Snellville to Hamilton Mill
and Peachtree Corners. Whether you have questions regarding day-to-day wellness
habits or you need help keeping track of upcoming screenings, you can count on our
primary care providers.
But this is only a small part of what primary care providers can do. As a part of
their role in supporting the proactive health of their patients, GMG Primary Care
providers also utilize the vast educational resources and specialized care available
through Northside Hospital.
For instance, if a person smokes, your physician will help you connect with our
smoking cessation program. We offer this free, expert-led program with the goal
of educating participants and giving them necessary tools and strategies to quit
smoking for the long term.
On the other hand, if someone has been diagnosed with diabetes or prediabetes,
he or she can turn to our Diabetes & Nutrition Education Center-one of the premier
programs of its kind in the region. With the help of specialty-trained professionals
and registered dietitians, people can learn how to control their condition while also
developing a diet plan, implementing healthy habits and maintaining a healthy weight.
Maintaining good health isn't always easy. Finding the right health care provider,
staying up to date on routine screenings and utilizing the educational programs
available in your community, however, can all help. Here at Northside Hospital, we
strive to be the source you count on for all of the above and more.
