At Celebrating Women Center in Oxnard, California, Dr. Adrienne Lara, MD, wants her patients to know that she went to medical school for you. She believes good patient care is collaborative and involves both the patient and doctor working together as a team to get to the same goal — patient wellness. Dr. Lara takes the time to listen to her patients to better understand who they are, so she’s not treating symptoms, but the whole patient, including their mind, body, and spirit.

Voted favorite MedSpa by the Ventura County Reporter and Best Med Spa Readers’ Choice County Star 2018, Celebrating Women Center offers a number of health and wellness treatments focused on regenerative medicine that allows patients’ natural beauty to shine through, including micro-needling, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and vaginal rejuvenation with advanced medical treatments such as laser therapy and surgical procedures.

After beginning her career in health care as a nurse, Dr. Lara then went to medical school at Boston University School of Medicine and completed her internship and residency program in obstetrics and gynecology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, which is part of Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Lara takes great pride in her community and believes as a doctor it’s her role to teach and share her knowledge so that her patients understand that they have options. Her integrity and authenticity when it comes to health care are why she’s so loved by all who see her.

Be Part of Women’s Health’s Next Virtual Health & Fitness Event

Women’s Health’s next virtual event is coming soon – and it’s going to be our biggest one ever.

Of course, we don’t want to give away too much just yet, but considering past events have seen tens of thousands of women tune in from the UK and beyond to work out with and hear talks by the likes of Jillian Michaels, Davina McCall and Kayla Itsines…

Well, you know this one is going to be *big*.

This time, we’re inviting brands to take part, and reach our audience – for starters, that’s a social media following of 1.4 million strong. Interest piqued? Here’s more info.

What are WH Virtual events?

While getting together to get sweaty is not an option, we connected with our audience in two groundbreaking virtual events in 2020.

In both, we’ve beamed fitness, health and wellness sensations like Jillian Michaels, Davina McCall, Kayla Itsines, Kelsey Wells, Dianne Buswell, Simone De La Rue and Jessica Skye straight into our readers’ living rooms for a series of thought-provoking interviews and star-studded workouts.

In our next virtual event – WH Weekenders – we’re looking to build on this incredible success.

What’s new this time?

We mentioned bigger, right? Instead of a two- or three-day event, our next virtual event will last four weeks.

Over the course of four weekends, we’ve scheduled in workouts with some of the world’s hottest trainers and celebs – but WH Weekenders is not all about getting sweaty.

Our audience will also be able to tune into fascinating panel talks with some of WH‘s editors and the UK’s top experts in fitness, health and wellness. We’re also spicing things up with several cook-alongs by top chefs, foodies and brands.

The line-up WH Weekenders will be announced in the coming weeks (and we can’t wait!)

Of course, the event length and line-up is not all we’re building on. We recognise that a big part of our in-person Women’s Health Live event was the opportunity for brands to showcase their products and services to our audience – so we’ve devised a few new ways for you to reach them. Virtually, of course.

1. WH Weekenders Marketplace

The first, our WH Weekenders Marketplace, will offer businesses the chance to exhibit with us. On the final weekend of January, event attendees will be able to attend our the online marketplace, where they’ll be able to shop and receive discounts to their favourite wellness brands.

2. WH Weekenders E-Zine

As an event bonus, our registered attendees will receive our free e-zine – a digital event guide and marketplace electronic magazine, which will feature a selection of our favourite wellness brands.

REGISTER YOUR BRAND

When + where is it happening?

The event will take place over the last 4 weekends of January 2021 – that’s Saturday 9 – Sunday 31 Jan.

The workouts, panel talks and cook-alongs will all be hosted on Women’s Health’s YouTube channel.

At a top hospital, Catholic restrictions on women’s healthcare are growing worse

Back in 2014, then-California Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris imposed a strict condition on the affiliation between Hoag Memorial Hospital and St. Joseph Health System, a Catholic hospital group: For the most part, Hoag was to be exempt from Catholic church restrictions on women’s healthcare services.

Doctors at Newport Beach-based Hoag say that condition has been flagrantly breached by Providence Health, the successor to St. Joseph — and the violations are proliferating.

Since 2015 and up to the present day, a managed health plan controlled by Providence has been refusing to pay for contraceptives prescribed by Hoag OB/GYNs for their patients.

We would like to be tops in women’s healthcare, but how can we be if there are certain things we will never be able to provide, based on our association with Providence?

Jeffrey Illeck, an OB/GYN at Hoag Memorial Hospital

The health maintenance organization, Heritage Healthcare, has cited the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services as grounds for refusing payment, even though the 2014 agreement under which Harris approved the affiliation explicitly states that Hoag would not be bound by the so-called ERDs then or “in the future.”

Frustration among Hoag OB/GYNs has been rising.

Several members of Hoag’s professional staff filed a confidential complaint with Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra’s office on Oct. 9.

The complaint asserts that “Providence has increasingly disallowed women’s health services when they involve any form of contraceptive care,” even when IUDs are prescribed for reasons other than birth control, such as heavy menstrual bleeding.

Providence also has refused to cover deliveries when they’re combined with sterilization procedures such as salpingectomies (the removal of one or both fallopian tubes), even though combining those procedures is the standard of care to avoid requiring a patient to undergo two rounds of anesthesia and recovery rather than one.

The complaint says that physicians’ staffs are spending many hours a day pursuing reimbursement claims for Heritage enrollees.

“We have seen IUD reimbursements, for example, pending for as long as two years, requiring multiple appeals and grievances on behalf of patients,” the complaint states. Billing staff “have never spent so much time trying to get reimbursements for IUDs. … In many cases, payment is never received.”

The Hoag doctors say that Providence established “an anonymous hotline for people to complain if they believed Hoag was committing so-called immoral procedures involving women’s reproductive health.” The hotline was connected to the Orange County bishop’s office, they say, adding: “We were never told of its existence.”

In sum, “Providence has established a history of broken trust in its relationship with us, with absolutely no end in sight,” says the complaint, which is not a public document but which I’ve reviewed.

Providence has refused to comment on any of these assertions.

Becerra has not responded to the complaint, even

Curves Celebrates 28 Years of Ingenuity and Innovation in the Women’s Fitness Industry

Enhanced membership options offer franchise owners additional revenue streams. New franchise opportunities for entrepreneurs extend beyond the reach of local clubs.

WACO, Texas, Oct. 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — This year, Curves celebrates 28 years of delivering a fitness solution designed specifically for women and 28 years of creating entrepreneurial opportunities for women who want to own their own business, provide for the financial needs of their families, and be a health resource in their communities. Krishea Holloway, President and CEO of Curves NA and Oceania, Inc., says that in 2020, Curves offers even more opportunities for entrepreneurs who have a passion for fitness and healthy living.

When Holloway took ownership of Curves in North America and Oceania in 2019, she introduced changes to help existing franchise owners better manage their businesses, increase their revenue, and improve their members’ gym experience. Now Curves is offering entrepreneurs new ways to engage with the Curves brand.

For franchise owners of local Curves clubs, Holloway’s upgrades include:

State-of-the-Art Operating System
Curves’ partnership with WellnessLiving offers owners an operating system that provides integrated CRM, payment, and member loyalty program tools and enables personalized webpages, reporting, and client communications.  

Enhanced Revenue Opportunities
The MyCurves on Demand program replicates the traditional Curves full body workout using a resistance band in place of the club’s circuit equipment for streaming workouts that can be done anytime, anywhere. When COVID-19 forced gyms to close temporarily, the at-home program provided an ongoing revenue stream for owners and a daily workout for Curves members. The MyCurves On Demand + Coaching Membership add-on includes weekly sessions with a Curves Coach. 

The Curves Health and Wellness Education Series allows Curves Coaches to become health resources in their own communities by delivering the most recent research on important health topics. Courses include dynamic e-leanings, weekly content review, and an extensive library of functional exercises. 

The Curves Strong (USA & Canada) and Curves Strong AU/NZ (Australia & New Zealand) apps provide Curves members with incentives to upgrade to premium status. 

For entrepreneurs looking for a more flexible franchise option, Curves now offers:
Curves Ambassador Program
Curves Ambassadors are independent contractors who develop a network of prospects and subscribers. They earn commissions for direct sales of Curves virtual offerings and products in areas with no Curves gym. 

Curves On The Go

Certified Curves On The Go Coaches lead group fitness classes at convenient “drop-in”, party, or corporate locations throughout their community. 

“I started my first Curves franchise at the age of 21, and I want more ambitious entrepreneurs to see Curves as a place to start and grow,” said Holloway. “My advice to aspiring business owners is, ‘It’s never too early or too late to start. Don’t count yourself or your financial situation out before you try.  I found a way to make the finances work on my own, even at an early age.’” 

Curves is famous for its 30-minute fitness circuit, with a Curves Coach at every workout and accountability to stay on

Indian women’s hockey team vice captain Savita Punia- The New Indian Express

By IANS

BENGALURU: Savita Punia, vice captain of the Indian women’s hockey team, has stated they had come prepared for a long camp when they returned to the Sports Authority of India facility following a six-week break in August.

“When we returned to SAI Bengaluru from a six-week break in August, we had come prepared for a long camp. This is good because we will get good continuity in our regime and we are working on rebuilding our game, fitness etc,” Savita said.

“The team is grateful to Hockey India and SAI for ensuring our preparations for the Olympic Games is unaffected despite the on-going battle with the pandemic. As players, we are taking several precautions during practice schedules, following the SOPs and we are taking extra care about ourselves too, in terms of recovery, rest etc in order to avoid injuries,” she added.

The team will begin their Olympic campaign against World Champions Netherlands next year in Tokyo. Though India has not faced the Dutch team in any major tournament in the recent past, they are very aware of how the team plays.

With both chief coach Sjoerd Marijne as well as analytical coach Janneke Schopman from the Netherlands, the duo is well-versed with the playing style of the Dutch national team.

“We have not played Netherlands national team in the recent past but we follow their matches closely and we end up talking to coaches Sjoerd and Janneke about the team’s playing style,” Savita said.

“Since both coaches are from Netherlands, they have a lot of knowledge about how the team plays. Netherlands are undoubtedly aggressive and tactically very sound. Our first match at the Olympics will surely be challenging,” she added.

In the upcoming FIH Hockey Pro League matches scheduled for 27 and 29 October in Amsterdam, the Netherlands will take on Great Britain.

“Both are very strong teams and it will be very exciting to watch them in action. I feel both matches will be quite closely fought. It will be interesting to see how both teams fair especially after not having played high-intensity matches in a long time due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We as a team will definitely be following these matches closely as it will provide great insights into their game,” Savita said.
