VaccinateVaccinate Teens
Vaccinate your Teens NOW against Future Cervical and Anal Cancers
Not one of my favorite, all-time subject lines but I hope it helped catch your attention.  According to date just released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only 40 percent of girls and 22 percent of boys ages 13-17 had finished their course of three shots for HPV by 2014. 
What you need to know is that while many people who get HPV do not develop cancer, the virus is the cause of almost ALL cervical cancers and 91 percent of all anal cancers. HPV is SO common that most people will get it at some time in their lives.  For many, HPV usually causes no symptoms so you can't tell you have it.  Others may experience genital or skin warts.  According to the CDC, for most women HPV will go away on its own; however, if it does not, there is a chance that over time it may cause cervical cancer.  
Prevention is easy and it's FREE to benefited CSI employees and their families because SelectHealth fully covers the cost of this series of vaccinations for both boys and girls ages 9 - 26 as a preventive service.  That means there is no copay, coinsurance, or deductible for vaccine and service charges. 
For questions about coverage through SelectHealth you may call Member Services at 800-538-5038 - the number listed on the back of your SelectHealth ID card.  For information about obtaining this vaccination series for your children you may contact the pharmacy where you commonly do business or your doctor's office. 
To learn more about HPV, check out this CDC site and also an article on vaccination rates by states

LongLong Hours at Work
Long Hours at Work are Killing You
This comes from one of m y favorite workaholic friends on campus.  J
Do you worry that yo ur workaholic ways are killing you? A new study says you may be right.
In an analysis of more than half a million men and women from around the world, those who put in long hours at the office were 33% more likely to suffer a stroke than their colleagues who clocked out earlier. Even those who worked just over 40 hours per week saw a significant increase in stroke risk, according to results published online Wednesday in the journal Lancet.
An international team of researchers gathered data on hundreds of thousands of workers in the U.S., Australia, Israel and eight countries in Europe who participated in various long-term studies. The volunteers told researchers how many hours they worked per week. Then they were tracked for several years. 
The researchers identified 528,908 people who were stroke-free when they joined a study. Over the next seven or so years, 1,722 of them suffered a stroke. But the odds weren't spread equally - the more they worked, the greater the risk. Learn more about it at: http://flip.it/kE4P3.
