How the Fiscal Cliff Will Impact Kansas

The Kansas Hospital Association produces video for congressional members
As we near the end of the calendar year, Congress continues to wrestle with many important issues, including the impending "federal fiscal cliff" and continuation of several Medicare extenders. Many of the issues that remain unresolved will have a direct impact on Kansas community hospitals and your community.

The Kansas Hospital Association recently distributed this informative video to our congressional members outlining the potential Medicare cuts and the resulting impact that it will have on our community hospitals. This three-minute video  urges our delegation to protect hospital payments in the federal budget. 

If you have any questions please contact csamuelson@kha-net.org.The Kansas Hospital Association is a not-for-profit association of health care provider organizations and individuals that are committed to the health improvement of their communities. KHA membership includes 217 member facilities, of which 126 are full-service community hospitals. Founded in 1910, KHA maintains its vision of "an organization of hospitals working together to improve access, quality and the affordability of health care for all Kansans."

Better Health

When should my child be training? 

"There are different 'peak seasons' you should be training. For instance: If you are playing volleyball right now, you should only be training one time a week. In that one time a week we work on flexibility, recovery, making sure things are staying strong from your summer training. 


If you are not playing and you are not training, the body does not retain it...you are loosing everything that you have gained. Train more on off seasons, less in season." Adam Rolf, DPT, ATC, CSCS

 

Better Health is produced by Lawrence Memorial Hospital and Freestate Studios, a division of WOW, to promote healthy lifestyle and health topics that are of interest to our community.
