TALLAHASSEE -- May 24, 2012 -

David Huang, M.D., a Tallahassee pulmonologist in private practice and director of a local sleep diagnostic center, kicks off the first in a series of monthly awareness campaigns for Health by the Numbers: 95210, which is a community initiative.

The 95210 community partners are focused on letting our community know how important it is for children to get nine hours of sleep each night. According to Dr. Huang, “Adequate sleep is fundamental to other areas of health, it is also a largely overlooked component of a healthy lifestyle. While most adults need anywhere from 7.5 - 8 hours of sleep each night, children and teenagers need at least 9 hours. Unfortunately, on average, our children and teens are not getting anywhere near that amount of rest. It is estimated that only 20 percent of our nation’s adolescents get the recommended 9 hours of sleep each night.”

Dr. Huang will be joined by a person who has found it difficult to sleep and who found methods to help. He will also share tips finding the solutions to sleeping issues.

95210 is a community wide strategy for promoting life-long healthy habits. With simple health messages behind each number, 95210 communicates key behaviors that promote healthy weight and overall good health. 95210 makes it easy to remember some of the most important steps families, community organizations and workplaces can take to promote healthy living.

    FINALLY SOMEONE ASKED HIM THE QUESTION! ON "ABC-TV" DURING THE "NETWORK SPECIAL ON HEALTH CARE".... OBAMA WAS ASKED: "MR. PRESIDENT WILL YOU AND YOUR FAMILY GIVE UP YOUR CURRENT HEALTH CARE PROGRAM AND JOIN THE NEW 'UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE PROGRAM' THAT THE REST OF US WILL BE ON ????" THERE WAS A STONEY SILENCE AS OBAMA IGNORED THE QUESTION AND CHOSE NOT TO ANSWER IT !!! IN ADDITION, A NUMBER OF SENATORS WERE ASKED THE SAME QUESTION AND THEIR RESPONSE WAS."WE WILL THINK ABOUT IT." AND THEY DID. IT WAS ANNOUNCED TODAY ON THE NEWS THAT THE "KENNEDY HEALTH CARE BILL" WAS WRITTEN INTO THE NEW HEALTH CARE REFORM INITIATIVE ENSURING THAT THAT CONGRESS WILL BE 100% EXEMPT ! SO, THIS GREAT NEW HEALTH CARE PLAN THAT IS GOOD FOR YOU AND I... IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR OBAMA, HIS FAMILY OR CONGRESS...?? WE (THE AMERICAN PUBLIC) NEED TO STOP THIS PROPOSED DEBACLE ASAP !!!! THIS IS TOTALLY WRONG !!!!! PERSONALLY, I CAN ONLY ACCEPT A UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE OVERHAUL THAT EXTENDS TO EVERYONE... NOT JUST US LOWLY CITIZENS.... WHILE THE WASHINGTON "ELITE" KEEP RIGHT ON WITH THEIR GOLD-PLATED HEALTH CARE COVERAGES.
