WellCare Gives $12,000 to Marshall County, Kentucky Initiative to Improve Youth Activity and Nutrition


TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) April 16, 2015

WellCare Health Plans, Inc. (NYSE: WCG), a leading provider of managed care services for government-sponsored health care programs, announced today that it gave $ 12,000 to the Marshall County Health Department, located in Western Kentucky, to help fund an after-school program designed to increase physical activity, improve nutrition and promote good character. The program, called Team Ultra, is open to third, fourth and fifth graders in the county.

Team Ultra is offered at all six of the countys elementary schools and provides more than 300 students with 45 minutes of moderate physical activity and ten minutes of nutritional counseling, once a week. During the activities, coaches incorporate lessons to teach good character, such as self-respect and respect for others, courtesy, fairness and citizenship. The program also promotes preventive health by rewarding students with a pedometer when they participate in an annual well-child visit.

Team Ultra also reinforces healthy behaviors by encouraging at-home activities, such as creating and running obstacle courses (with parent approval), planting vegetable gardens, eating healthy and reading nutrition labels.

The Marshall County Health Department is grateful to WellCare for helping us make Team Ultra available to every student who wanted to participate this school year, said Paul Rudd, registered dietician for the Marshall County Health Department and program director for Team Ultra. The programs primary objective is to encourage personal responsibility to establish a lifetime of health and wellness to combat obesity, which is most often the result of poor eating habits and lack of physical activity.

WellCare is proud to make programs, which help to teach life-long healthy habits, available to even more children, said Dr. Howard Shaps, medical director for WellCare of Kentucky. The benefits of Team Ultra also extend to the entire family, as it encourages the children to share what they have learned to positively impact the overall health of everyone in the home.

High Performance Brain Magazine Celebrates One Year on the iTunes App Store


Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) March 26, 2015

With the release of its 7th issue in January 2015, High Performance Brain Magazine is proud to celebrate its One Year Anniversary on iTunes. This bimonthly digital magazine is available at the iTunes App Store under two categories: (1) Newsstand (Health, Mind & Body) and (2) Health and Fitness. Magazine issues are viewable on iPads or iPhones and automatically default to the ideal display mode depending on the device used a graphic-friendly format for iPads versus a text-friendly format for iPhones.

In the cover story of anniversary issue #7, Dr. Daniel G. Amen (a clinical neuroscientist, double board certified psychiatrist, brain imaging expert, and multiple New York Times bestselling author) outlines his best prescriptions for living a brain healthy life. Other articles in this issue include: “Your Brain on Chocolate: Brain-boosting benefits of eating dark chocolate,” “Brain Myth Busting 101: Why we use way more than 10% of our brain,” “You Snooze, You Lose: 4 tips for putting your snooze button addiction to rest forever,” and “The Musical Brain: Listening to music lights up your whole brain.” Issue #7 also includes the first in a series of live online brain training classes.

Back issues of High Performance Brain Magazine have featured a wide ranging menu of brain health approaches, such as: physical exercise, mindfulness, nutrient-dense super foods, sleep science, memory enhancement, musical training, stress reduction, and frontal lobe practices.

High Performance Brain Magazine is considered a premiere digital guide for optimizing brain health/longevity and brain fitness/performance because of the high calibre of its contributing authors. The tips and strategies offered in this magazine are written by the world’s top neuroscientists, doctors, neuropsychiatrists, and brain health experts. These world class scientists draw their information from up-to-date research in the frontiers of neuroplasticity, brain health, neurological rehabilitation, memory enhancement, and brain training systems. Cultivating an optimal state of brain performance using science-based practices can, over time, lead to cognitive benefits such as: better mental clarity, focus, concentration, memory power, and productivity.

Prominent neuroscientists say we’re in the midst of a “Neuroplasticity Revolution” because new research on the complex workings of the brain is being released at an unprecedented pace. The idea of ‘brain plasticity’ or ‘neuroplasticity’ the brains ability to adapt and rewire itself in response to new experiences and novel learning is the single “most important change in our understanding of the brain since the beginning of modern science, says Norman Doidge, New York Times bestselling author of “The Brain That Changes Itself.”
