I want to thank all the courageous and inspiring runners on the RunAcrossUSA team as they get ready to start the first leg of their important cross country journey tomorrow. Please show your support by liking and sharing this photo and heading over to their page to follow them. I encourage you to learn about each of their stories and share “WHY” they are running (to raise awareness for childhood obesity and inactivity)!
The George & Anne Ryan Institute for Neuroscience was recently established at the University of Rhode Island (URI) on November 14, 2013. This new partnership will help boost the brain power of the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program (INP) at URI which gathers researchers and educators from a wide range of disciplines—faculty who work to pose and answer key questions about nervous system development, neural function, injuries of the nervous system, mental health, and disease processes.
The other day I was out for a run with my 11 year old son and we were pushing it a little hard on hills. The trail was challenging and was “off the beaten path” a bit and I suddenly came to the realization (as my heart was pounding out of my chest) that I didn’t have a great emergency response plan in place if I went down and became unresponsive. I’d like to think that the patient ID card I carry that identifies I have a septal occluder would be found on me, but I also have doubts it would have enough data on it to matter to a first responder. Read this post and you’ll see from my endorsement after the video why RoadID quickly became the ID I carry to give myself and my family peace of mind. It gives responders instant access to all the medical data and contacts I wish to share in emergency. It is easy to register,set-up and modify your information. Read this full post to see how you can get my top pick for the best emergency ID for stroke survivors and help support your favorite charity too.
