Although Emergency Medical Services (EMS) systems have been around for decades, it is still perceived as the stepchild of health care services. It is one of the lowest paying professions with little room for advancement, yet high in demand by the citizens who need prompt pre-hospital emergency care. However, over the years EMS systems have made several advancements, making EMS more progressive and modern. Since the White Paper was release in 1966, several improvements have been made, including education in EMS.

The perceived benefits were good among participants; they agreed that eating a healthy diet and exercising for 30 min a day was one of the best methods to prevent heart attack or stroke (Poudel & Sumi, 2017). Participants with a low educational level perceived more barriers than others which point to that as knowledge increases, perceived barriers decrease. Poudel, and Sumi (2017) study concluded that educational intervention must pursue to eliminate common misconceptions about heart disease and mainly help to promote awareness about risk management for CVDs among young adults, women, and minority
The awareness of the inclusion of zinc in the management of childhood diarrhea among health care providers has been reported to be high in some developing countries. The use of zinc to treat diarrhea has the potential to avert up to an estimated 400,000 deaths annually and has been recommended for treatment of children with diarrhea in developing countries by UNICEF and WHO. A major concern is that ORT does not affect morbidity. Zinc has been found to reduce the duration and severity of diarrhea episodes and to lower incidence for the next two to three months . WHO identified a number of management practices and these are breast feeding, Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT) and weaning practices.
By doing so, it is more convenient for all members because by filling out a water bottle once, it can last more than an hour. Therefore, they do not need to fill out water in a small cup so many times. Also reusable cups and glasses reduce energy use by 98 percent based on 1 million beverages served in glasses, including environmental impacts of manufacturing, using and washing glasses. Both Ceramic and glass reduce water pollution by 99 percent. Ceramic only can reduce water usage by 64 percent.

In this regard, Hughes (2008) emphasizes that, “Epidemiologic studies continue to demonstrate the favorable cost-benefit ratio and positive effects of simple hand washing for preventing transmission of pathogens in health care facilities” (p. 938). Despite its proven efficacy, the research to date also indicates that clinicians only wash their hands according to recommended hand hygiene protocols about 40% of the time on average, with an alarming range of between 5% and 80% (Hughes,
According to the website I read “ putting fluoride in the water decreased the number of cavities in children.” Fluoride is actually in water and foods already. When cities add fluoride to the water not only are the adults all getting the same amount of fluoride in one glass of water but the children get the same amount as the adults. The adults might drink more water than the children but per glass of water it is distributed evenly. What are the benefits of adding fluoride to the
Participation in afterschool programs has been associated with positive health outcomes, including reduced obesity (Mahoney, J., Lord, H., & Carryl, 2005).Working families and businesses also derive benefits from afterschool programs that ensure that youth have a safe place to go while parents are at work. Parents concerned about their children’s afterschool care miss an average of eight days of work per year, and this decreased worker productivity costs businesses up to $300 billion annually (Brandeis University, Community, Families and Work Program, 2004 and Catalyst & Brandeis University, 2006). Statement of Purpose & Objectives The purpose of this project is to evaluate the benefits of after school programs, specifically programs facilitated by the City of Fresno Parks and Recreation Department in the Fresno Unified School District. Evaluating the well-being and confidence of its participants and to explore the potential benefits of this program for the participants in other districts such Clovis Unified and/or Madera Unified. The following objectives will be used to conduct this research: 1.
