Osteoporosis/Med Adherence

5/1/2024
Every episode on our podcast addresses a new topic important to your health and well-being, bringing in doctors, specialists and other health experts who offer advice and answer your most pressing questions. Today’s episode features two such topics – both quite different, yet as we’ll see, totally related. May is National Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month, so it’s the perfect time to learn more about the most common type of bone disease. And our second topic impacts virtually every topic we have on this podcast, but few more than this one, so there’s no better time than now to address the issue of medication adherence – that is, how faithfully we take our medications as prescribed. Our expert on this topic today is Bethany Wallen. Bethany Wallen is a registered nurse and star ratings coordinator at Health Alliance in Champaign, Illinois.

National Hispanic Month

9/1/2023
Welcome to Hally Healthcast, the wellness podcast from Hally® health – your partner in helping you live your healthiest life. Today’s episode is all about awareness of Hispanic heritage and culture. National Hispanic Heritage Month begins in September, so it’s the perfect time to learn more about this important topic. Let’s begin with some awareness about the month itself. Did you know that unlike most monthly observances in this country, National Hispanic Heritage Month begins at midmonth and ends at midmonth, as it is celebrated every year from September 15th to October 15th? The reason is because September 15th is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, while Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16th and September 18th, respectively. Columbus Day, which celebrates the anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ arrival in the Americas, at Guanahani, an island in the Bahamas, on October 12th, also falls within this 30-day period. All right, now for some personal perspective on National Hispanic Heritage Month, here with us is Jessica Arroyo. She’s a bilingual Medicare sales associate for Health Alliance. Welcome, Ms. Arroyo, and thank you so much for being with us today and sharing your knowledge, perceptions and experience.
