How to exercise during the pandemic – Lawrence County Press

Life changed overnight for millions of people across the globe in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, which shuttered businesses and forced many people to follow stay-at-home measures issued by their local governments. These measures not only affected the overall health of those infected with the virus but also those who experienced no symptoms and even tested negative for COVID-19.In recognition of the mental toll that social distancing and stay-at-home measures can take, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised people to exercise regularly. But opportunities to exercise seemingly dried up when stay-at-home guidelines were issued and gyms were shuttered. People without exercise equipment at home suddenly found themselves wondering how they could stay fit and keep their bodies in the best possible condition to fight a virus that has claimed thousands of lives. Thankfully, there are ways to stay fit and keep immune systems strong without violating stay-at-home measures. Access online exercise programs. Many gyms that were forced to close to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus began offering exercise tutorials and classes via social media or websites such as YouTube. Go back to the basics. Many people no doubt recall gym class from their school days. Such classes teach youngsters the basics of physical fitness without employing dumbbells or advanced exercise machines. Those same basic exercises that work for youngsters, including push-ups, sit-ups and lunges, can be effective for adults as well. Do some yard work. It might not feel as high-intensity as a spinning class or a Pilates session, but yard work can be a great workout. Dust off the push mower the next time the grass needs to be cut, and get to work on pulling weeds in garden beds. Go for a jog. Perhaps the simplest way to exercise during the pandemic is to go for a daily jog. According to the Mayo Clinic, aerobic exercise repeatedly moves large muscles in the arms, legs, and hips while engaging the immune system and helping it to ward off minor viral illnesses.Exercise can help people maintain their immune systems in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, and there are many simple ways to fit in a little physical activity even while social distancing.

Reverse your risk of prediabetes with virtual resources – KSDK.com

Health, nutrition and exercise dont have to be put on hold just because most of us are stuck at home.

ST. LOUIS Did you know there are virtual options available when it comes to reducing the risk of prediabetes? The Association Director of Community Health at Gateway Region YMCA, Kimberly Thro, is here to tell us how it all works.

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Diabetes Prevention Program is part of a larger campaign called the National Diabetes Prevention Program. The goal of these programs is not only to help people prevent diabetes, but also to help them increase physical activity, reduce their fat intake, and integrate healthy eating practices. Kimberly notes that these programs work to help people on the participants terms. The goal is not to force people into any lifestyle changes they dont feel they will be able to maintain.

In terms of proper nutrition during this pandemic, not much really needs to change. People should still be getting plenty of fruits and vegetables and focusing on whole foods. For exercise, it might be more of a struggle but there are plenty of online resources to keep you active at home.

Meet Jason Rybak and learn how he was able to transform his outlook and his size. Transformation Tuesday is back, and there couldn't be a better time for some positivity and inspiration! If you feel like you need a sense of control and structure for your life again, weight loss coach Charles D'Angelo teaches that you should start by taking control of what you can control yourself.

The goal of the virtual prediabetes program is that it will feel very similar to an in-person program. It will allow participants to build relationships with each other and with their lifestyle coach. Allowing people to connect from afar with technology means they dont have to wait to get started.

To find out if you could be at risk, visit reverseyourrisk.com. This will help you find your starting point. If you are interested in joining a virtual cohort or want to take a quiz to learn more, you can go to gwrymca.org/preventdiabetes. For any lingering questions you can email preventdiabetes@gwrymca.org.

Shareholders may bring one (1) or two (2) advisors to the general meeting, subject to the shareholder notifying this according to what is set out above.

As there is no requirement to include information regarding the record date in the Articles of Association, since this is regulated by the Companies Act (2005: 551), and as the current wording of paragraph 9 of the Articles of Association is not compatible with an expected change in the Companies Act which is expected to enter into force in 2020, the Board of Directors proposes that paragraph 9 of the Articles of Association shall be amended as set out above.

A valid resolution pursuant to this item requires that the resolution be supported by shareholders representing at least two-thirds (2/3) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the annual general meeting.

Resolution regarding authorizing the Board of Directors to resolve to issue new shares, issue convertible loan notes and/or issue warrants (item 13)

The board of directors proposes that the general meeting authorizes the Board to resolve, on one or more occasions, during the period and until the end of the next annual general meeting, to increase the Companys share capital through new issue of shares, convertible loan notes, and/or warrants to the extent permitted by the Articles of Association from time to time.

New issue of shares, as well as issue of warrants and convertible loan notes, shall be able to take place with or without deviation from the shareholders pre-emption right, against cash payment, for payment in kind, by way of set-off, or on conditions following from Chapter 2, Section 5 of the Swedish Companies Act. According to Chapter 16 of the Swedish Companies Act, this authorization does not authorize the board of directors to resolve on issue to Board Directors and/or employees of the Company.

A valid resolution pursuant to this item requires that the resolution be supported by shareholders representing at least two-thirds (2/3) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the annual general meeting.

Resolution on approval of the board of directors decision to issue new shares with deviation from the shareholders pre-emption right (item 14)

The board of directors proposes that the general meeting approve the board of directors resolution to increase the Companys share capital by no more than SEK 213,611.04 due to the issue of up to 2,591,140 new shares.

The new shares shall be issued at a subscription price of SEK 1.50 per share, which corresponds to approximately 21 per cent discount based on the closing price on 5 May 2020.

Subscription of new shares was completed on 18 May 2020 in accordance with the boards resolution. The right to subscribe for the new shares was, disapplying from the shareholders pre-emption rights, vested in Truls Baklid, Jakob Leitner and Thomas Seifried (employees of the Company) and to the board member Hans Othar Blix. In total, 2,524,474 new shares were subscribed for.

The reason for derogating the shareholders pre-emption right is that the employees and the member of the Board, through their own investment, should be able to access and work for a positive value development of the Companys shares and thus achieve alignment of interest with the Companys shareholders.

The new shares entitle the holder to a dividend as from the date on which the shares are entered in the share register maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB.

A valid resolution pursuant to this item requires that the resolution be supported by shareholders representing at least nine-tenths (9/10) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the annual general meeting.

Resolution to a) approve the Board of Directors proposed new share-based incentive program through b) directed issue of warrants and c) approval of transfer of warrants (item 15)

The Board of Directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to approve the Board of Directors decision on 6 May 2020 on a share based incentive program for certain employees and consultants in the Company and its subsidiaries (the Incentive Program 2020/2023A) in accordance with what is stated under section a) below.

In order to secure the Companys commitments under the Incentive Program 2020/2023A, the Board of Directors also proposes that the annual general meeting shall resolve on a directed issue of warrants in accordance with what is stated under section b) below and resolve to approve the transfer of warrants to certain employees and consultants in the Company and its subsidiaries as specified under section c) below.

a) Resolution on the adoption of a new share-based incentive program

The Board propose that the general meeting resolves to adopt the Incentive Program 2020/2023A on the following principal terms and conditions:

*The allocation of warrants in each category will partly be subject to each participant, holding warrants under the previous Employee Stock Option Program 2018 and/or the Employee Stock Option Program 2019, waiving all its rights under the Employee Stock Option Program 2018 and/or the Employee Stock Option Program 2019. In this respect, the allocation will be made on a 1:1 ratio, implying that each holder will be offered one new warrant in the Incentive Program 2020/2023A in exchange for waiving its right to one warrant in a previous program. For the avoidance of doubt, holders of warrants in the Employee Stock Option Program 2018 and/or the Employee Stock Option Program 2019 that are no longer active consultants or employed by the Company or its subsidiaries will not be subject for this offer.

b) Resolution on a directed issue of warrants

In order to enable the Companys delivery of shares according to the Incentive Program 2020/2023A and to secure related costs, primarily social security contributions, the Board of Directors proposes that the annual general meeting resolves on a directed issue of a maximum of 9,000,000 warrants and on approval of transfer of warrants on the following principal terms and conditions:

c) Resolution on approval of transfer of warrants

The Board of Directors proposes that the annual general meeting resolves to approve that the Subsidiary may transfer warrants to participants in the Incentive Program 2020/2023A without consideration in connection with warrants being exercised in accordance with the conditions under section a) above or otherwise disposing of the warrants to secure the Companys commitments and costs in relation to the Incentive Program 2020/2023A.

Additional information on the Incentive Program 2020/2023

The reason for the adoption of the Incentive Program 2020/2023A and the deviation from shareholders pre-emptive right to subscribe for new warrants is to be able to create opportunities for the Company and its subsidiaries to retain competent personnel by offering a long-term ownership commitment for the employees. Such ownership involvement is expected to stimulate employees to increase their interest in the business and the earnings trend and increase the sense of belonging to the Company.

The proposal has been prepared by the Companys Board of Directors. Stein Revelsby, CEO and director in the Company, has not participated in the preparation of the proposal.

The Board of Directors considers that the Incentive Program 2020/2023A will cause costs in the form of accounting costs and partly in the form of employers social contributions.

A valid resolution pursuant to this item requires that the resolution be supported by shareholders representing at least nine-tenths (9/10) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the annual general meeting.

Resolution to a) approve by shareholder Fougner Invest AS proposed share-based incentive program through b) directed issue of warrants and c) approval of transfer of warrants (item 16)

Fougner Invest AS, shareholder in the Company, proposes that the general meeting resolves on a share based incentive program for the board of directors in the Company (the Incentive Program 2020/2023B) on the same terms as the Incentive Program 2020/2023A in item 15 above.

In order to secure the Companys commitments under the Incentive Program 2020/2023B, Fougner Invest ASs also proposes that the annual general meeting shall resolve on a directed issue of warrants in accordance with what is stated under section b) below and resolve to approve the transfer of warrants to certain the board of directors in the Company as specified under section c) below.

a) Resolution on the adoption of a share-based incentive program

Fougner Invest AS propose that the general meeting resolves to adopt the Incentive Program 2020/2023B on the following principal terms and conditions:

b) Resolution on a directed issue of warrants

In order to enable the Companys delivery of shares according to the Incentive Program 2020/2023B and to secure related costs, primarily social security contributions, Fougner Invest AS propose that the annual general meeting resolves on a directed issue of a maximum of 450,000 warrants and on approval of transfer of warrants on the following principal terms and conditions:

c) Resolution on approval of transfer of warrants

Fougner Invest AS further propose that the annual general meeting resolves to approve that the Subsidiary may transfer warrants to participants in the extended Incentive Program 2020/2023B without consideration in connection with warrants being exercised in accordance with the conditions under section a) above or otherwise disposing of the warrants to secure the Companys commitments and costs in relation to the extended Incentive Program 2020/2023B.

A valid resolution pursuant to this item requires that the resolution be supported by shareholders representing at least nine-tenths (9/10) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the annual general meeting.

Resolution to authorize the Board of Directors to undertake minor adjustments of the resolutions (item 17)

Press Release: New telehealth model of care paves the way for increasing patient engagement and improving patient outcomes – PRWire

MEDIA RELEASE

27 May 2020

New telehealth model of care paves the way for increasing patient engagement and improving patient outcomes

Australian health care provider, Care Connected, has launched a new model of care that offersboth the telehealth technology platform, the tailored health care programs for remote consultations and the actual health professionals to deliver the health services. The model of care specialises in the key areas of supportive cancer care and mental health recovery.

The cancer support services provide a tailored approach for patients across the care continuum from early intervention to end of life care, and the mental health recovery programs utilise a stepped care approach in the assessments of every individual and are underpinned by recovery orientated practice and trauma informed care.

Michael Marthick,Founder and Managing Director, Care Connected, says, Our model of care draws on decades of best practice research and testing and is proven to bring better health outcomes to more people, for less cost. We have developed ourend-to-end care coordination approach as we know it increases patient engagement and ultimately improves patient outcomes.

Patient reported health outcomes are measured routinely using remote monitoring tools, this then enables programs to be adapted, and care delivery improvements can be made in real time.

Accessible now, Care Connecteds tailored health and wellbeing programsprovide a multidisciplinary care teamto patients anywhere. This multidisciplinary model of care is delivered via video calls, messaging, and remote monitoring using high quality, secure connections and may consist of Psychologists, Oncology nurses, Exercise Physiologists, Physiotherapists, Dietitians to name a few. This care team approach is integral to Care Connecteds model of care. An experienced oncology registered nurse then coordinates the care team, develops the care plans and provides support and advice for the duration of the program.

Mr Marthick continues, Telehealth has a vital role to play now and beyond the current COVID-19 situation.Digital health data is growing exponentially, feeding new knowledge and insights that can ultimately inform predictive and personalised care. All of this means tremendous things for maintaining wellness and delivering individualised healthcare that keeps people out of hospital and engaged in an active life, whether they live in metro, regional or remote Australia.

As Australias success rate in cancer treatment rises, the next challenge for our health professionals, and health care system is providing patient centredrecovery care models. Many people discover they need support after their cancer care treatment concludes, be it focussed on health and wellness, including mental as well as physical issues or reflecting on the cancer experience to dealing with the expectation of family and friends. An end-to-end care coordination and multidisciplinary care team telehealth approach provides the ideal solution.

Two weeks before Christmas 2015, Emma Bowen from the Atherton Tablelands, Queensland, was diagnosed with Stage III Hodgkins Lymphoma and underwent several cycles of ABVD chemotherapy treatment over the following seven months.

Emma was referred to Care Connected Cancer Support program in mid 2018 by her Life Insurer. With a history of complications that were impacting her quality of life,a tailored program was designed to improve fatigue, pain and improve Emmas physical and mental quality of life. PTSD and anxiety issues were triggered for Emma as a result of diagnosis and treatment, so she was enrolled in a Care Connected Mental Health Coaching Program in 2019, funded by her Private Health Insurer.

Ms Bowen comments, Initially, for my Cancer Care support program, I was provided with Exercise Physiology appointments, Psychology and Dietetic support. I found the Psychology sessions especially helpful as living in a rural region, I did not previously have access to a Psychologist who specialised in working with Cancer patients.

She adds, Before being referred, I never knew such a program existed in such a format to make it accessible to those of us in rural settings, most programs I saw were being run, face-to-face in cities. To have the ability to access amazing specialists as part of one telehealth care program in the comfort of my own home, without having to travel, has been a huge blessing in my post treatment journey.

Often with Cancer patients, the focus is on the treatment phase through to remission, afterwards, without programs like Care Connected we are often left to explore and navigate post-treatment options. My current program is continuing to really help me bridge this gap and rebuild my new life.

Care Connected offer services direct-to-patient, via referral from their Specialist, General Practitioner (GP), other healthcare professional or directly via the patients enquiry. Its programs are also designed to provide many benefits to insurers, healthcare organisations and health professionals.

We are looking forward to seeing members June 1 swimming in the pool, doing group exercise outside and teens and children connecting with each other in a safe camp environment, said Stephen Ives, President and CEO, YMCA of Greater Houston.

Community Partnership on Aging transitioning to virtual programming – cleveland.com

SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio -- The coronavirus and its demand for social distancing, especially among older members of the population, has created the need for some changes at the Community Partnership on Aging.

The nonprofit organization that serves seniors in six local communities finds itself in the position of having to change from its usual in-person programs to virtual, online programs.

Meetings held in person helped give seniors who may be isolated an opportunity to socialize with others, but holding such programs is -- at least for now -- not deemed safe.

Its a big change for us, said CPA Executive Director Wendy Albin Sattin.

Making the change a challenge is the fact that some seniors do not have computers, while others who have them are not able to utilize them to full capacity.

Across the county, we have a large percentage of people who are not computer comfortable, Sattin said. And, were finding that 67 percent of older adults dont have access to computers. We have to work to close that gap. Were finding that that gap runs along the lines of age, affluence and education.

At the same time, Sattin said, CPA is gaining some new seniors who are plugged in to virtual programs.

Sattin said the CPA is beginning the process of changing over to online programs with its book club.

Were going to monitor how it goes closely, she said.

Other planned online programs include virtual art museum tours, concerts, lectures and exercise classes. For a complete list, visit here.

Were doing some things to help us make the change to virtual programming. Were seeking funding to help us buy tablets, and were having our staff promote doing things on Facebook Live or YouTube so that people become more familiar with them," Sattin said.

The CPA serves South Euclid -- where it is headquartered at the South Euclid Community Center, 1370 Victory Drive -- as well as Lyndhurst, Highland Heights, Mayfield Heights, Richmond Heights and Mayfield Village.

For the past couple of months, CPA has been able to continue its food program via a drive-through program in which seniors can stay in their cars and pick up frozen lunches from volunteers in the lots of the community centers in each member community.

In normal times, the community centers, on designated days of the week, would welcome seniors 60 and older indoors and serve hot lunches.

Reservations are needed for curbside lunch pickup. To see a schedule and to learn more, visit here.

Another CPA undertaking is what Sattin called pop-up parking lot programming.

Were doing exercise programming in the parking lots of our locations, she said. "Were doing yoga, senior exercises and tai chi. And, were getting our walking club together.

We figured exercise is a good thing to start with for our outdoor programs. Nothing can happen indoors until the senior center is allowed to open.

Those 60 and older who are interested in participating in the exercise program can learn more by calling 440-473-5138.

Providing money for seniors groceries

Jim Lawless, president of the South Euclid Commission on Aging, said that the organization, which works with the CPA and helps raise funds for CPA programs, has begun a grocery voucher program to help those 55 and older who have an annual income of less than $16,000.

The vouchers can be spent at Daves Supermarket, 5100 Wilson Mills Road in Richmond Heights. Lawless said the SECOA is giving away 50 vouchers in the amount of $40 each, while Daves has donated an additional five vouchers.

We gave out 55 at Christmastime, and thats when I found out how many people were living on so little, Lawless said. So we wanted to do it again. Im delighted we can do it and help these people.

Sattin said CPA social workers have begun giving the vouchers to CPA clients in need.

The SECOA raises funds through its annual Taste of Cedar Center event, which has been held for five years at South Euclids Cedar Center North. Due to the coronavirus, this years Taste of Cedar Center has been canceled.

Weve made around $5,000 a year with our Taste of Cedar Center, except two years ago when it rained and we made about $2,000, Lawless said. I dont know what were going to do to raise money this year. We used to have card parties, but they would only raise hundreds of dollars, instead of $5,000.

Sattin said the money from the SECOA is used to fund the CPAs summer repair program, in which volunteers make repairs at seniors homes. Sattin said there is funding for this summers program, but she shares Lawless concerns about future funding.
