  • Good Shepherd Medical Center Introduces an Online Childbirth Class

    Good Shepherd Medical Center is offering a new online childbirth class for expectant families. The internet-based program is a convenient alternative for those who are unable to attend an on-site class.

  • January is Cervical Health Awareness Month

    Good Shepherd Medical Center has joined a national campaign to urge every woman to make her health a New Year’s resolution.
     
    Each year nearly 13,000 U.S. women are diagnosed with cervical cancer, and more than 4,000 die as a result. Screening tests (Pap tests and, when appropriate, HPV tests) and vaccines exist that could essentially eliminate the disease, but are not always used despite provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) that require insurance plans to cover cervical cancer screening tests to women and HPV vaccines.

  • Use S.M.A.R.T. Goals When Planning for 2017

    A new year means new beginnings, and proper planning can make the difference between finding yourself eating quinoa or cookies come day 30 for even the most well intentioned New Year’s resolutions.
    When considering ways to make 2017 your healthiest year yet, remember to set S.M.A.R.T. goals: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely.
