Chester Springs Family Practice: Why Choose a Family Practice?

Unlike other physicians who specialize in treating one particular organ or disease, your family physician is uniquely trained to care for you as a whole person. In addition to diagnosing and treating acute and chronic illnesses, your family physician provides routine health screenings and counseling on lifestyle changes in an effort to prevent illnesses before they develop. And, if a health condition arises that requires care from another specialist, your family physician will be there to guide you and to coordinate all aspects of your care.

Doctors, such as Dr. Darlene Ouattara of Chester Springs Family Practice here in Eagleview Town Center, create an ongoing relationship with their patients which helps the doctor allow for faster care considering they already are familiar your medical history. Dr. Ouattara is a Board Certified Family Medicine physician and serves the needs of children ages 12 and up, adults, and seniors. She provides comprehensive preventive care, management of acute and chronic medical conditions, and teaches and encourages healthy lifestyle living.
She also supports MeMD which allows you to receive treatment from your home or office virtually!  Sign up to receive treatment from your webcam capable device for minor ailments!

Which Halloween Treats are the Healthiest?

Check what our friends are saying about Halloween candy.

Some candies are nutritionally better than others.

With big differences in calories, sugar, and quality of ingredients used, it’s just not true that all Halloween candy is the same.

“None of them are exactly good for you, but we’ve done some close analysis of common competitors to see which options are best from a nutrition perspective.”

Candy Cheers and Jeers:

  • PayDay over Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups: Reese’s Cups contain polyglycerol polyricinoleate (PGPR), a commercial emulsifier used to reduce cocoa butter. PayDay is the only candy to list peanuts, not sugar, as the first ingredient.
  • Kit Kat over Twix: They’re similar in calories and sugar (and both include PGPR), but Twix’s ingredient list is long. Also, Twix is marketed as a biscuit topped with caramel and chocolate, but there’s no caramel on the ingredient list.
  • M&Ms over Skittles: Both contain artificial colorings and wax. M&Ms offer a small amount of calcium and protein and less sugar.
  • Baby Ruth over Snickers: There’s no real winner here–Snickers has partially hydrogenated oil, and Baby Ruth has high-fructose corn syrup and the preservative TBHQ. Snickers loses out simply because the portion is larger and so more caloric.
  • Mounds over Almond Joy: Mounds has a shorter ingredient list and does not have the partially hydrogenated oil found in Almond Joy.
  • 3 Musketeers over Hershey’s Milk Chocolate: The Hershey Bar has PGPR, while 3 Musketeers includes real cocoa powder.
  • Whoppers over Milk Duds: Milk Duds will stick to your teeth, so they’re a non-no for anyone with dental issues. Whoppers’ smaller serving size saves some calories.

How To Put Corporate Wellness To Work For You and Your Company

While there is no simple solution to the nation’s growing health crisis, it is evident that if everyone were to become physically active, the savings for individuals, employers, and the nation would be dramatic.

Working adults spend a substantial portion of their week in the workplace. In 2014, U.S. employees were on the job an average of 7.8 hours per day, or about one-half of their waking hours. This makes the workplace a useful and practical setting for introducing health and wellness-related initiatives that will benefit employees and their families, as well as employers.

Under the Affordable Care Act, employers with a qualifying wellness program can lower healthcare premiums up to 30% to encourage and reward participation. Companies also can offer employees incentives for participating in educational seminars or biometric screenings, as long as they are not tied to specific outcomes or results. Proven corporate wellness programs, like the ones offered at acac, are a win-win for all involved. Continue reading

Help Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern PA Reach its Goal of Recruiting 100 Male Volunteers to Celebrate its 100-Year Anniversary

We know children will find mentors, but why leave it up to chance? 1,200 children in the Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties are waiting to meet their Big Brother or Big Sister.  Can you mentor one? 

The time commitment is just 2 – 4 times a month, and you spend time with a child doing things you both enjoy, like cooking, playing sports or just talking.

The best part is it works. Independent research proves children with Big Brothers and Big Sisters have greater confidence, do well in school and have better relationships with their friends and family.  In fact, 81% of former Littles surveyed agreed their Big gave them hope & changed their perspective of what they thought possible.

Help “Make It Big” this year. Sign up to attend an information session to learn about becoming a volunteer. 
Contact Garfield Jackson at 484.404.2457 or gjackson@bbbssepa.org.

Learn more about Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern PA by visiting www.makeitbig100.org or calling 215.790.9200.

Why You Should Support Independent Bookstores

“There are lots of reasons to support local businesses, whether it’s mom-and-pop hardware stores or neighborhood farmers’ markets. But when you buy from an independent bookseller, you’re doing something more. You’re helping to keep alive an important force in making our national literary culture more diverse, interesting and delightful. Your shelves are full of books that wouldn’t be there if not for indie booksellers you’ve never met, struggling to get by in shops you’ve never heard of. That’s why it’s so important to support the one next door.

Squeezed first by chain stores like Barnes and Noble and later by online retailers like Amazon, these beloved neighborhood staples are a dying breed. ”

We have two great independent bookstores here in Eagleview Town Center. The Wellington Square Bookshop and The Eagle’s Nest Christian Bookstore. Supporting independent businesses  and watching them grow is something that Eagleview finds valuable. Smaller bookstores have the flexibility to help out the up and coming writers get their name out there. Everyone has a dream and sometimes these big chain stores get in the way of allowing smaller companies to grow.  Our bookstores help our community come together through book clubs and other events that our bookstores host. Make sure you check them out and thank them for being there to help make our Eagleview community great!
