LOCAL PROFILE: Turkey Day Fitness Tips

 

ATLANTA – Next week marks the start of the season many of us look forward to, year round. People love this season, dubbed “the most wonderful time of the year”, for a number of reasons. For children it could be the toys and gifts they receive or the annual visit to Grandma’s house. Or for adults it could be the abundant holiday cheer or the abundant holiday food it's okay to consume for the mere sake of the holiday. For some, the holidays can be too cheery and many end up heavier than they were before they started. 

Was the holiday food really worth a holiday gut? Think again.

Many people struggle with this issue, year in and year out. Some go on crash diets before the holiday or workout until they’re fatigued to “make room” for their Thanksgiving Feast but Amy Henry at FORUM Fitness in Buckhead thinks they’re all “wasting their time”.

Atlanta Opera and Emory partner for middle school voice program

Atlanta Opera and Emory partner for middle school voice program

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Opera has partnered with the Emory Voice Center to create a program for middle school choral students.

This two-month "Vocal Immersion Program" (VIP) focuses on teaching opera knowledge and skills to up-and-coming singers at Atlanta's Coan Middle School.

"We hope this program will provide an arts and science approach to enhance vocal understanding and vocal health to these choral students and their teachers," said VIP creator Dr. Adam Klein, assistant director of the Emory Voice Center at Emory University Hospital Midtown.

Coan Middle School recently lost its budget for a voice teacher, which makes it even more important for the students to gain exposure for the arts, Klein said.

"We also hope that this program will benefit children in other schools suffering from the same curriculum challenges," he added.

Take-back event yields 3,800 pounds of drugs

Take-back event yields 3,800 pounds of drugs

ATLANTA -- The third National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Oct. 29 was a huge success in Georgia.

Participants turned in about 3,794.35 pounds of unwanted and expired medication for safe disposal at numerous sites across the state.

This amount exceeded the weight of the drugs collected at the second event in April, which was about 3,509 pounds.

"The total number of drugs taken back in Georgia speaks volumes about the problem of unused and unneeded prescriptions, the danger they pose to the community and the communities' commitment to making prescription drug abuse a top priority in the state," John Comer, acting special agent in charge of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Atlanta Field Division, said in a statement.
