Zika- Awareness is the Answer-

Aedes Aegypti Mosquito

      Dr. Lee cautions that especially women who are pregnant or planning pregnancy should be very careful to avoid mosquito bites this summer. "We may  have a vaccine next year" she said, "That is if Congress ever moves on funding of the research that is being started through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC). This is a real risk (not like Ebola that was so far away) and the harm to babies can be prevented."

Loren Eisley was a twentieth century academic and writer. The following is a paraphrase of a well-known story that he wrote as the “Star Thrower” and then revised a few times:


A writer, while walking along the shore early one morning, spotted a stranger repeatedly pick starfish from the sand and throw them one-by-one into the sea. “Why are you throwing starfish into the water?” the writer asked. The stranger answered, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. They will dry and die here.” The writer pointed out there were thousands of starfish on the beach, one person could never make a difference."I made a difference for that one”, the stranger answered, tossing another starfish into the welcoming sea.


Making a difference can happen in many ways. Each of you can help “throw starfish back into the sea” by supporting Family Health Care’s work with the vulnerable who happen to be part of our community.
