March 2011 news conference by members of the Texas Public Health Coalition, suggesting to Texas legislators how they can save money while saving lives this session. The group of physicians, nurses and other health care stakeholders endorsed several bills while opposing planned budget cuts to tobacco and obesity programs.
we're here today to lay out the coalition's position on parts of the proposed state budget and to announce our endorsement of eight key bills now the state of Texas faces a huge budget crisis the people of Texas face a huge health crisis We strongly encourage our senators and representatives to make healthy choices today that can both help them balance the budget and help Texans live longer healthier and more productive lives Texas can no longer afford to indulge the smoking and eating habits of some at a huge cost to all Texas taxpayers tobacco is the leading cause of preventable death in Texas period nearly 25,000 deaths each year in Texas are linked to tobacco the direct and indirect costs of smoking in Texas is 20 billion dollars a year the draft state budget in both the House and Senate cut about 23 million dollars in state and federal funds from tobacco control programs this cut amounts to four-fifths of our very meager tobacco control budget we oppose this cut as being penny wise perhaps but very pound foolish the cost to the state for these bills is absolutely zero but the savings are advanced a report that was released last week suggested that if we had an indoor smoking ban it would save Texas Texas legislatures Texas business and individual Texans and more than 400 million dollars a year prohibiting indoor smoking will make a big difference in the number of heart attacks in the number of asthma premature births and other diseases from which millions of textin suffer it would also make a huge difference in the state budget obesity costs Texas business is almost ten billion dollars and that's projected to exceed thirty two billion dollars by 2030 obesity is responsible for a twenty-seven percent increase in health spending more than five million texans are obese and that's expected to double over the next twenty years meaning that by 2040 at least seventy-five percent of texans will be overweight or obese increasingly this crisis is beginning in childhood and texas is tied for seventh place among states in the share of its children that are obese despite all this the draft state budgets are going the wrong way they would cut 4.8 million dollars that's all state funding for obesity prevention programs they would cut public school health programs by over two-thirds 65 million dollars once again we oppose these cuts as penny wise but pound very foolish

After answering many questions from patients about procedures, Dr. Gilmore began a YouTube channel in 2014 as a method of demonstrating many of the office procedures that are performed by Family Medicine physicians today. While words can be comforting, videos of actual patients undergoing procedures performed by Dr. Gilmore are invaluable in helping patients understand how various office procedures are performed. They are also helpful for patients in their decision-making about whether they would want the same procedure and how much discomfort they should realistically expect, if any. Dr. Gilmore is thankful for the patients who have volunteered to share their procedure experience in a video and takes care to ensure that the patient’s identity is never compromised.

ever go to the pharmacy and get sticker shock at the price of medication who has it right but guess what there are ways to get huge discounts on the medication you need that's if you know how Lauren Talarico shows us how tonight my suspicion is is they don't Blanche with pressure and I learned that there were medical videos on YouTube and I thought wow this is a great way to reach people we're usually magnified for eggs Gilmore uses it as a medical megaphone do like how to say big on medications I'm talking from 10 to 90 percent so there's lots of ways to find discounts on a medication here's how number 1 shop around what they don't realize is the price isn't the same everywhere call the different pharmacy chains and just ask them what's the cash prize half price means what we pay without insurance which brings us to number two don't assume insurance is the way to go if it's a generic product oftentimes and this is sad but true the copay and the price that they're going to pay for that medication with their insurance is more expensive than the simple cash price number three use a price comparison tool online like good rx calm or retailmenot.com and it will tell you who has the best price in the area and they even often will have a coupon that you can print right out $35 CVS $29 not with the online coupon we found this medication for 19 bucks Oh also your doctor the pharmacy and drug manufacturer might also offer coupons number four don't be afraid to ask your doctor for free meds if you need something to get you through that copay time or that beginning of the year time works a little bit more difficult ask for samples you'd be surprised what we can do I'm Lora Talarico and now you know hey folks you spoke and we listened here's what you had to say above meta 7 I love it so much gives me so much energy during the day I've noticed a change in my hair my nails my blood pressure there's no doubt that it is it's a benefit to me it gives me more stamina and actually helping lose weight now I haven't taken a nap in six months that's right Metta seven more and more people are sending in their testimonials weight loss more energy and generally feeling more alert during the day let's hear more I just recorded a 90 day supply I have more energy in a better mood it's natural it's amazing I feel motivated to get out and do things that I didn't before I'm not tired during the day I've worked 12-hour shifts just go go go all day it makes me great I love it and take it it's wonderful stuff if you haven't tried Metta seven yet it's time to order yours from Amazon time to boost your metabolism and kick your energy level into high gear there's an Amazon link in the description
