Finding Relief from Painful Spine Fracture
Nancy is one of more than 10 million Americans with osteoporosis, a disease marked by porous, brittle bones that can break more easily than healthy bones. Women over 50 have a 1-in-2 chance of breaking a bone due to osteoporosis.1 Osteoporosis is sometimes called a “silent disease” because it has no symptoms before a fracture occurs.2 That’s what happened to Nancy.
Stay at Home with Home Health Care Services
The availability of home health and hospice services can help patients retain their residence of choice, which is often their own home, but it’s important to have a clear understanding of what each benefit entails.

Astronomy: Fun and Educational for All Ages, Through the Ages
Humankind has been looking up at the night sky forever in awe and wonder. The earliest records of this date back thousands of years — Cave drawings have been found showing constellations, to which some cultures gave names of gods and animals. Others used the movement of the sun and stars to determine when to plant and when to harvest. At the same time, astronomers were asking questions about the nighttime sky — especially, “What’s out there?” Astronomy is an ever-changing science as we learn more and more about not just the Milky Way Galaxy that we live in, but our entire universe. Aristotle learned that the world was round by studying the phases of Venus. He noticed it would cycle like our moon. The famous Hubble Telescope Deep Field image is a great example of our knowledge being changed forever. Hubble was pointed at an area of the sky about the size of a postage stamp, expecting not to see too much. To our amazement, the image was filled with thousands of galaxies pictured at right.
