    Don’t put off regular eye exams because your eyes feel fine, or if you don’t wear glasses or contact lenses. Signs of some eye diseases, such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), can be present before you might notice any symptoms. In addition to eye diseases, vision and required refractive corrective prescriptions change regularly.

    Blog Omnigraphics Alzheimers 72 300x175 Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month: Early Warning Signs and Prevention

    Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and is the most common type of dementia. Dementia is a term used to describe the impaired ability to remember, think, or make decisions that interferes with doing everyday activities. 

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that about 5.8 million people in the United States have Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, with 5.6 million aged 65 and older and about 200,000 under age 65 with younger-onset Alzheimer’s. As our population ages, unless new ways to prevent or delay the progression are discovered, the percentage of people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s is expected to increase. The number of Americans with the disease is projected to rise to 7.1 million people by 2025, an increase of nearly 22% from 2020.

  • April Is Stress Awareness Month: Tune into Stress Symptoms and Take Action for Better Health!

    Blog Omnigraphics AprilStressMonth 0422 300x175 April Is Stress Awareness Month: Tune into Stress Symptoms and Take Action for Better Health!

    We typically think of stress as being a bad thing, which is not necessarily the case. All stress is not created equal, and stress responses are not always problematic. In fact, positive stress responses help us adjust to new situations, keep us alert, help us build resistance, enhance motivation, help us avoid danger, and improve cognitive function. Researchers have identified two different types of stress: ”distress,” which refers to negative stress (a breakup), and “eustress,” which refers to positive stress (starting a new job). Negative stress is the “bad” stress and is a major contributing factor to both physical and mental health problems.

    In celebration of Black History Month Trailblazing African American inventors who changed our world 300x169 In celebration of Black History Month learn about trailblazing African American inventors who changed our world!

    The contributions that African Americans inventors and scientists have made throughout history have had a tremendous impact in the world. It is important to note that historically African American contributions have been muted or undocumented as a result of slavery, and discriminatory laws and practices. In particular, there were numerous African American inventors during the Industrial Revolution (mid-19th century through the early 20th century) who have been left out of historical records resulting from the widely accepted racial bias during that time.  This is considered to be one of the most innovative eras in world history, with major advances in agriculture, transportation, manufacturing, and electricity, and although African Americans were contributing to these world-changing, modern inventions, they were not receiving the support, recognition or in some cases patents, that their white counterparts received.
