If road works are taking over pedestrian walkways, pedestrians must not be left in the lurch, and forced to walk into traffic. As part of the planning, ensure uninterrupted pathways for pedestrians. This is crucial to pedestrian safety, as without these, they are forced to  negotiate deep ditches, sharp metal, and heavy machinery.

Consumer Awareness - Hypertension: Women at higher risk

New research indicates that women run a higher risk of #hypertension over the age of 50. Not only does this have to inform health policies, but also personal action. Women, don't ignore your health. Have your blood pressure routinely monitored. #FindItFixIt
