Hello everyone,

I have some exciting updates from the healthcare world. The latest news includes Obamacare enrollment breaking records for the third consecutive year, with over 20 million people signing up for Affordable Care Act marketplace insurance plans. This is a landmark moment for the 2010 health law, highlighting the significance of enhanced subsidies and the continuing reach of the marketplaces.

Additionally, the Biden administration is rolling out a new federal program to provide summer grocery money to 21 million children across 35 states, ensuring that students have access to food when they’re not in school. Although there are still about 20 million uninsured Americans, ACA plans have become more affordable, with some costing as low as $10 a month.

In other news, the WHO reported almost 10,000 COVID-19 deaths in December, emphasizing the need for continued vigilance and preventive measures. It’s important to note that the number of new cases of RSV is stabilizing, and there are very good vaccines and treatment options available to decrease the risk of hospitalization and deaths.

Lastly, the Defense Secretary’s secret battle with cancer has sparked discussions about the importance of spreading awareness and educating the public about the risks of prostate cancer, particularly among African American men. The healthcare world is constantly evolving, and it’s crucial to stay informed and proactive about our health.

Stay positive and informed,


Stay Well!
