    A New Remedy for Urban Minority Health Disparities

    in Education

    Dr. Sadeaqua Scott obtained her Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Biology from SUNY Downstate Medical Center in 2011. She has over 14 years of experience working in various scientific research laboratories that study genetics, entomology, HIV, macro and molecular, environment, as well as cancer.   Shortly after completing her dissertation Dr. Scott began working with her partner, George Leonard Bess who has been a practicing naturopathic healer for over 9 years.  He has real-time research experience in reversing diagnosed physical and mental illnesses through his study of macro-environmental effects as it relates to the body’s microenvironment.  He was recently awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the Aboriginal Medical Association of North America for his development of the break-through health paradigm entitled the Nutrient Retention Rate which Dr. Scott assisted in refining.

    On a special edition of 'This Week in Health Innovation' at 1PM Pacific/4PM Eastern March 25th 2015, join @efuturist Douglas Goldstein and me Gregg Masters @2healthguru for an impromptu and raw wrap-up with key takeaways from the 15th Annual Population Health Colloquium organized by David Nash, MD, MBA the founding and current Dean of the the Jefferson School of Population Health on the campus of the Thomas Jefferson University.


    This was an amazing conference in the 'City of Brotherly Love' aka Philadelphia.  We conducted no fewer than 15 interviews with keynote speakers to session moderators and toured the landscape from the implications of global risk contracting to incremental progress from the fee for service to fee for volume paradigm shift.


    Join us for an informal recap of this no 'Johnnie come lately' to the Population Health conversation and discovery journey. In fact, some may say the event is perhaps the 'grand-daddy of them' all.


    Enjoy!

    Colon Cancer Prevention & Health Awareness

    in Health

    TUNE IN NEXT SATURDAY FOR ANOTHER INFORMATIVE PROGRAM BY ALPHA HEALTH MINISTRY,


    Among cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon or rectum) is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Every year, about 140,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and more than 50,000 people die from it. But this disease is highly preventable, by getting screened beginning at age 50.


    What You Can Do



    If you’re aged 50 to 75, get screened for colorectal cancer regularly. Screening tests help prevent colorectal cancer by finding precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) so they can be removed.
