During Sleep Awareness Week 2015, the National Sleep Foundation’s trying to drive the broken-record medical advice to the public: Get more sleep.

March – “Be Aware”

From the desk of Adam Bruckman

Team,

The Be theme for the month- Be Aware- may seem a bit vague at first until you think about the many implications.  March is a month for several health awareness activities, which is a big part of our employer and employee education efforts. Thanks to both the Events and Wellness committees, we are bringing more awareness and activities to our offices to help us walk the wellness talk. But that’s just the beginning of how “Being Aware” can make us better individually and collectively.

By: Nicole Consiglio

Tracking steps, sleep and heart rate, oh my! Today’s technology in the wearable fitness arena is really quite impressive.  There are gadgets and gismos that track just about anything.  Not only are some of these items really sophisticated technology wise, they are fashionably sophisticated, too.  Plus, it doesn’t matter if you’re a newbie or a seasoned pro—there is something out there for everyone.

National Black History Month

By Jess Knight

“Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world…” serves as the opening line to the preamble for The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. All over the United States, civil rights museums serve as an avenue to create awareness and provide further knowledge on an important part of our nation’s history. As we celebrate National Black History Month, we encourage you to take time to visit or revisit museums dedicated to civil rights. If you are visiting DBA Cambridge or Wellesley, you can go to the Museum of African American History in Boston, MA. If you’re in Tennessee near DBA Memphis, you can visit the National Civil Rights Museum. Nestled between the Georgia Aquarium and World of Coca Cola in Atlanta, GA is the Center for Civil and Human Rights.

Be the Reason Someone Smiles Today

By Katie Prellwitz

People can’t seem to settle on where Pay it Forward came into play. Benjamin Franklin, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Lily Hardy Hammond, and Woody Hayes among others are credited with kicking off the phrase. It wasn’t until the blockbuster hit in 2000 starring Haley Joel Osment that launched a large movement from three little words. Whether it’s a big or small gesture, paying it forward is simply a random act of kindness.

B@W: Specialty Drugs: A New Frontier in the Battle to Control Healthcare Costs

By George Papagelis

In the science fiction classic television show Star Trek, Captain Kirk opened up each show with the following narrative:

“Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Its 5-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.”

One aspect of the show that amazes me though, is how Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy always had the most cutting-edge technology, serum, or potion to cure almost any illness or injury. Okay, maybe it’s just a television show, but in the real world, doctors and scientists continue to creep closer to remedy amazing medical results improving the quality and longevity of life.

Like A Girl

By Katie Prellwitz

Although the role of women in sports has significantly changed in the last thirty years, female athletes have been paving the way to their own championships for thousands of years. Mary, Queen of Scots was golf’s first lady, and introduced the “caddie”, a corruption of the French word “cadet” who used to carry her clubs. In today’s world, the CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi, played cricket and baseball.
