Key West, FL (PRWEB) March 06, 2014
A professional evolution is brewing in health care that will take a quantum leap later this year. A decades-in-the-making shift in medicine made a sudden turn in 2011 when the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine (ACIM) decided to pursue the establishment of a formal specialty in Integrative Medicine with the American Board of Physician Specialties. The first-ever certification exams announced by the affiliated American Board of Integrative Medicine (ABOIM) received overwhelming positive interest causing a delay from May until November 2014 in scheduling for the numerous applicants who met the deadline for participation.
Dolly Garlo, founder of Thrive!! Coaching, Consulting & Training, sees this development as a win for patients and a significant opportunity for physicians called not only to treat illness, but to heal and promote health, particularly in collaboration with practitioners of numerous beneficial complementary healthcare practices. She adds, Its time for innovative health care leaders to step forward, build strong businesses around their professional practices, and sensibly market the availability of their cutting edge services so that regular people understand what they are and how to access them.
The so-called Towns vs. Gowns debate (certification vs. academia) has resolved in favor of specialty certification, which gives both referral sources and the public more they can rely on. That move is further supported by the decision of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine (ABIHM) to become an international academy called the Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine (AIHM) with a new mission to implement the science of health and healing into practice by bringing leaders of medicine and the healing arts together into an academic and clinically focused community including professionals from multiple disciplines. Not only MDs and DOs, it will support licensed and credentialed healthcare providers such as naturopathic physicians, chiropractors, acupuncturists, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dentists, pharmacists, psychologists, nutritionists, and dieticians.
Management consultant extraordinaire, Peter Drucker contributed two important principles to whats needed in health care in this country today when he said: Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things[; and] business has only two functions marketing and innovation.
To take advantage of the opportunities these important shifts represent, and better serve the public, the following tips will assist interested practitioners:

To mark International Womens Day, the United Nations Foundation, Johnson & Johnson, BabyCenter, and The Huffington Post are launching the Global Moms Relay today through Mothers Day on May 11. The Global Moms Relay is a virtual relay whose purpose is to inspire moms in the U.S. to take actions that help improve the lives of mothers and children around the world.
We all know that moms have the power to change the world – in their communities, homes and hemispheres, says Aaron Sherinian, vice president of communications and public relations at the UN Foundation. The Global Moms Relay gives moms, as global change makers, a chance to make a difference in the lives of women and children around the world by mobilizing their voices and their networks. Their stories and their actions will drive awareness and action on some of the most urgent issues of our time as we support the UN and its partners in building a better, healthier world for everyone, everywhere.
Following the success of last years relay, a number of inspirational voices are joining the conversation this year, including Amanda Peet, Annie Lennox, Priyanka Chopra, and Toyin Saraki, who will share their stories of how a mom changed their lives. Each time a post is shared through social networks, Johnson & Johnson will donate $ 1 to raise up to $ 250,000* to support one of three global initiatives:

Being accountable is a huge part of The Growth Coachs business and sales coaching process. Taking responsibility for your business and your leadership is a vital step in making lasting improvements. On the other side of that coin, The Growth Coach also knows its important to recognize a job well done.
Thats why The Growth Coachs corporate team presented three company awards at The Growth Coachs annual conference in San Antonio on Feb. 17. Michael Neuendorff, owner of The Growth Coach of the San Francisco Bay Area, was named Coach of the Year; Glenn Smith, owner of The Growth Coach of Houston was recognized with this years Go-Giver Award; and Diane Wagner, owner of The Growth Coach of Fort Mill, SC, was given the No Parking Founders Award.
Michael, Glenn and Diane are examples of the best of our franchise family. They really show that if you have the guts to be an entrepreneur and join a system like ours, you follow the process and you take pride in changing lives, youll be successful. We give awards like these because we think its important to recognize those people who are really the epitome of what The Growth Coach is all about, Growth Coach President Nathan Owens said.
The Growth Coach, the #1 business and sales coaching franchise for 2013 according to Entrepreneur Magazine, is dedicated to helping small business owners, business leaders, management teams, sales people and self-employed professionals to be more successful while finding the necessary balance between business and life. While The Growth Coach is the worlds largest provider of affordable group coaching workshops, their coaches also provide one-to-one coaching, remote coaching delivered via phone and web, and special project.
Coach of the Year: Michael Neuendorff of San Francisco
Michael Neuendorff is celebrating five years as the owner of The Growth Coach of the San Francisco Bay Area and his growth is outstanding. He performance is continually in the top five percent for the entire company and yet he finds time to work the Sales Help Desk, serve on the Presidents Forum Advisory Board and mentor new owners.
When I started working with the Sales Help Desk and the Presidents Forum last year, it ushered in a year of being much more involved. Id established my business and those two opportunities gave me a chance to work much more closely with coaches throughout the system. Its been a great experience, he said. Honestly being more involved has given me a renewed sense of confidence and energy.
I was completely surprised by the award. Surprised and very touched. Im not someone who craves recognition, but it is invigorating to hear about the positive impact Ive made on the system and my fellow coaches. Ive worked hard and I definitely appreciate the award, he added.
Go-Giver Award: Glenn Smith of Houston
Glenn Smith, owner of The Growth Coach of Houston, serves Sugar Land, Katy, Missouri City and the surrounding West Houston communities. Smiths business has grown substantially in the eight years hes owned his Growth Coach franchise, but he was named this years Go-Giver because he still always finds time to help the franchise. In the last year, The Growth Coach has counted on Smith to help with training materials, mentoring of new coaches, webinars and more. He also serves on the companys Presidents Forum advisory board.
I certainly didnt expect to win any sort of award for the work that I do within the system When Im asked to do those sort of things like work with the new owners I just dont think any different. Of course Im willing to help. Helping people is just part of being a Growth Coach, but I am honored to have been recognized, Smith said.
No Parking Founders Award: Diane Wagner of Fort Mill, SC
The No Parking Award is The Growth Coachs Founders Award and its not given out every year. The award, a play on the No Parking sign Founder Dan Murphy gives to new owners to remind them to get moving, was given to Wagner because of her commitment to getting out into her community and building her business. Wagner opened her Growth Coach franchise in November of 2013 after more than 20 years in corporate American and a decade as the owner of an insurance business.
I was totally blindsided by the award. The No Parking sign from Dan actually means a lot to me. I have it sitting in my office to remind me to get out, meet people, spread the word about The Growth Coach and build my business, she said. Its easy to spend time just getting ready, but you have to get moving. I take that very personally.
The Growth Coach of Fort Mill serves Fort Mill, Rock Hill and Columbia in South Carolina.
The Growth Coach was recently included in the Bonds Top 100 Franchises and was recognized in Entrepreneur Magazines Franchise 500 as the #1 Business Coaching and Consulting Franchise for 2013 as well as in the magazines Best of the Best and Top Home-Based Business listings. The companys Strategic Mindset Process is so effective that it comes with a money-back guarantee.

Healthandlifeinsurancequote.com has released a blog explaining the importance of having health and life insurance for seniors!
Health and life insurance are two important policies every breadwinner should have. These two plans provide essential financial security for the whole family. Health insurance covers medical costs, which are to be expected in the case of someone who is old, and life insurance pays a death benefit in case the insured loses his or her life.
Life insurance pays insurance money to the policys beneficiaries. The beneficiaries are named directly by the insured. They will receive the insurance proceedings tax-free and they can use the money to support themselves and cover the insured’s funeral costs and other last expenses. Life insurance is beneficial for other family members, but some plans can build cash value and provide financial income.
Health insurance is an important policy as it covers medical expenses. Health insurance plans can be bought through government programs or clients can buy an individual policy. Individual policies offer better coverage and more options for receiving health care. By comparing quotes, clients can find affordable health and life insurance plans.

A new website has been launched to help American consumers plan for the physical, emotional and financial burdens that Long Term Health Care places on family and loved ones. Mary Ann DeKing, regarded by many in the industry as the nations top Long Term Care Specialist, announced that her new website, http://www.planandcare.com, will provide consumers with information to help them start the process of Long Term Care planning.
It can be very confusing trying to determine what options are available. Most consumers understand that health insurance (including plans under the Affordable Care Act) and Medicare (the government health insurance plan for those 65 and older) do not pay for a majority of Long Term Health Care costs. Medicaid is the medical welfare program and it only pays for care after a person exhausts a majority of their assets. What many Americans are unsure of is exactly what other choices for planning could be open to them, DeKing said.
Planandcare.com provides consumers with information so they can start the education process. This allows people to include Long Term Care planning as part of their retirement plan. DeKing says that affordable Long Term Care insurance is just one of a number of solutions that could be available. A specialist, like DeKing, can help someone determine if they need a plan, health qualify for protection and then shop for the best coverage at the best value.
Other products, such as Critical Care plans and life & annuity products with Long Term Care riders are also potential solutions. The first step is to educate yourself to discover what solutions best fit your individual situation, DeKing said.
DeKing indicates that for most people, Long Term Care insurance will be the most affordable and comprehensive option. Unfortunately, many insurance agents do not understand how these products work or how they get used at the time of claim. In addition, she says every insurance company has different underwriting criteria and most insurance agents have trouble understanding these differences.
Many insurance agents and financial advisors make errors in policy design and product selection. Very few insurance agents and financial advisors have the level of experience that top Long Term Care Specialists have in this field. It is key to work with a specialist in order to get the proper recommendations in terms of coverage and price, DeKing said.
The American Association for Long Term Care Insurance recognizes DeKing as one of the nations top specialists. DeKing is routinely listed among the nations top 5 specialists and is her agencies number one specialist. She helps both individuals and companies find affordable Long Term Care solutions. Her new website, http://www.planandcare.com, has education sections for individuals and businesses plus a section on tax impact and recommended links for additional information.
Consumers can then get a personal education session to learn more and obtain plan design and costs. DeKing enables her clients to see her computer screen as they, on the telephone, learn about their options and shop all the top companies to find the best coverage at the best value. This makes this very convenient and safe for the consumer.
DeKing says she helps people, primarily ages 40 to 70, who wish to plan for their future retirement so they can protect their assets and never be a burden on their family. She says Long Term Care insurance is affordable if designed correctly.
The consumer watches my desktop on their own computer screen. I ask them questions in order to help me make the appropriate recommendations. If appropriate, I help design a suitable plan and we can make application electronically. There is no pressure just someone who can answer questions, DeKing said.
DeKing said since insurance rates in Long Term Care are regulated, every agent uses the same rates for each insurance company.
The main difference between me and someone else is my level of experience in Long Term Care, the fact I represent the top insurance companies and I can help people using this technology to make it simple, safe and convenient for the consumer, DeKing added.
Consumers can also reach her by phone, (888) 778-2905 or email at maryanndeking(at)planandcare(dot)com.
