Dave Olday
is our walker for February. He is 68 years young and has been married to Cheri for 5 years. They moved here 3 years ago from Fargo, North Dakota, after he retired as a college teacher. They moved to Havasu because of our great weather!  Dave walks about 4 miles every Monday, Wednesday and Friday with several friends in his neighborhood or at Rotary Park. He has Coronary Artery disease and had a bypass 12 ½ years ago.  He walks for his health and has had no health issues since. He says he feels better physically when he is active.  Dave is chair of the Havasu Heart Society under the HCHF umbrella, which hosts monthly public educational forums. Dave thinks appealing to people medically is not effective in getting people active. He believes that forming walking or exercise groups and making it social is what works. So get several friends together and “Get On Your Feet!”

Havasu Community Health Foundation has an opportunity to partner with the Mohave County Department of Health by providing smoking cessation classes. We recently learned that Mohave has the second highest county smoking rate in the U.S. We want to help reduce tobacco use in our community. Volunteers are needed to go through the necessary training and become certified coaches for smoking cessation classes.

Interested volunteers will start with a very basic web-based training that’s done independently. This will give them a good idea of how to talk with smokers about quitting.

The Cancer Association of Havasu and the Havasu Community Health Foundation offer lab-screenings for our community.

Local residents who pay a low co-payment, can benefit from CA-125 (Ovarian Cancer, Lung Cancer) and PSA (Prostate Cancer) screenings supported by the Cancer Association of Havasu. These early-detection screenings are made available as a result of the successful fundraising efforts of the Cancer Association volunteers as well as voluntary donations.  Mammograms (screening and diagnostic) are available for low cost also. (For more information on mammograms click HERE )

Havasu Community Health Foundation makes a number of common wellness screenings available at a nominal cost: Hemoglobin A1c, Urinalysis, Complete Blood Count, Vitamin D, TSDH-Thyroid, Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP), and Lipid Panel. These tests are subsidized by HCHF funds gathered through local fundraising events and undesignated donations. (For more information on laboratory tests click HERE )

Undesignated donations to the Foundation will enable current screenings programs to continue as well as allow growth of new health-related programs and services.

To take advantage of these screening programs, individuals complete a form and pay all applicable co-payments at the Havasu Community Health Foundation Office located in The Shambles, 2126 McCulloch Blvd. Unit 7, Lake Havasu City, AZ.

(NaturalNews) We live in a world where corporate profit is more important than consumer health. Because our diets, for the most part suck, we turn to Rx drugs for health and survival. Before getting into why Rx drugs? Let's take a walk on the wild side...It's a Friday or Saturday night, nothing going on, so you decide to take in a flick. You get to the theater, buy your ticket and decide to get some munchies so you can enjoy the movie better. What are your options?
