HTG Discusses Hemorrhoid Treatment for College Students

HTG Discusses Hemorrhoid Treatment for College Students










(PRWEB) January 04, 2014

Though many associate hemorrhoids with a specific age group or lifestyle, the condition is not a discriminatory one, and can affect people of all ages and lifestyles. To corroborate this, Hemorrhoid Treatment Group discussed hemorrhoid treatment options for college students, bearing the January 2nd Boston Globe article titled “Insurance Costs to Fall for Many Students” in mind. The article revealed the increasing likelihood of healthcare costs dropping for students, citing Massachusetts among the leader in developing more affordable healthcare options for young students unable to remain on their parents’ healthcare plans.

In the Boston Globe article, Marcella Bombardieri discussed Massachusetts healthcare for college students, revealing the measures being taken to ensure that students are able to receive affordable healthcare. Though the issue had long been plaguing Massachusetts, it wasn’t until students were revealed to have been dropping out of school due to high healthcare costs that the state began to pay attention to student needs, and began taking measures to allow students to find affordable healthcare while remaining in school.

College students, though many are in their teens and twenties, are not exempt from worry over contracting hemorrhoids—largely due to poor diets and high stress levels. Hemorrhoid Treatment Group encouraged college students suspected of having hemorrhoids (including any students experiencing pain or blood during bowel movements, and heat or swelling on or around the rectum) to consider their healthcare options. This may include using a parent’s insurance policy if under the age of 26, for some. For others who may be living out of state or unable to qualify for their parents’ health insurance, there are often university-based healthcare coverage plans. These are generally aimed toward students with little to no money, and are often affordable or offered at no cost. For all others, a private or public health insurance plan may be an option. As healthcare regulations change and alterations take effect in 2014, students may qualify for low-premium coverage, allowing students to find affordable, effective hemorrhoid treatment.

Marcella Bombardieri is a Boston Globe reporter. Her work is limited to higher education, providing news reports for higher education institutions and state and federal regulations as they relate to students. She has worked for the Boston Globe since 1999 as a staff correspondent.

Hemorrhoid Treatment Group encourages college students to seek insurance options when in need of hemorrhoid treatment. These options range in both coverage and ease of use, and may include a parent’s insurance, or university-based coverage. Though many college students fail to recognize their propensity for illness or health complications, securing a reliable healthcare plan is an essential aspect of transitioning into adulthood. For those in need of surgical or medical hemorrhoid treatment, health insurance is pivotal.

Foundation Financial Group Recycles With Blessings in a Backpack to Help Hungry Students

Foundation Financial Group Recycles With Blessings in a Backpack to Help Hungry Students












Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 26, 2013

Foundation Financial Group continues a year-long campaign to help the Blessings in a Backpack organization provide food to school children in need. So far, Foundation Financial employees across the nation have fed seven children for an entire school year by recycling.

“It’s humbling how the simple act of recycling can make a difference for underfed children in our communities,” said FFG Event Coordinator Megan Nau. “Blessings in a Backpack gives children a sense of security that comes from knowing they will have food to eat when they are hungry. Foundation Financial is honored to be part of helping students succeed.”

By recycling aluminum cans in the break room, FFG employees are using environmentally responsible habits to feed schoolchildren. Every FFG office located in a city with a local Blessings in a Backpack chapter is participating in the initiative. Foundation Financial’s Regional Sales Centers in Atlanta, Savannah, Jacksonville, and Rochester have contributed to the corporation’s Blessings in a Backpack campaign. When the designated blue recycling bin is filled, a representative from Blessings comes by to collect the cans. One full bag generates about $ 6 for the cause.

Blessings in a Backpack sends home a backpack full of food for elementary schoolchildren who are enrolled in the federal Free and Reduced Price Meal Program. The food items are easy-to-prepare or ready-to-eat meals such as microwavable pasta, oatmeal, cereal bars, and dried fruit. Backpacks are sent home at the end of the week to ensure the children have something to eat over the weekend.

Over 20 million American children are considered to be at risk for hunger or malnourishment. Child development is impeded by hunger. Poor nutrition contributes to a weakened immune system, increased hospitalization, lowered IQ, reduced attention span, and lowered academic achievement.

Blessings in a Backpack currently feeds over 63,000 children in 583 schools across 45 states. Blessings also supplies food to hungry children in Canada, Columbia, and Haiti. The program is sustained through private sector funding and public partnership carried out in public schools.

Foundation Financial Group’s contributions to Blessings in a Backpack will send meals home to children from the Atlanta Public School System (Atlanta, GA); Brunswick Public School System (Savannah, GA); Duval Public School System (Jacksonville, FL); and Greene Central School District (Rochester, NY).
