Medical Mutual of Ohio Screening Program

A first-of-a-kind, three-year, community-wide wellness initiative is being launched in the city of Solon by Medical Mutual of Ohio, a leading provider of Ohio individual health insurance. Called "Healthy Solon," this project involves screening citizens for illness, tabulating data on illnesses and the rate of occurrence, and recording the results of any treatments people choose to undergo.

Paula Sauer, Medical Mutual's vice president of Care Management, said the health of Solon residents will be tracked over the duration of the three-year wellness initiative.

"Through an early health risk assessment (HRA), residents will have the opportunity to identify a potential health issue," said Sauer. "Health awareness and early detection programs will figure prominently in the first year of the pilot program. Solon residents will be offered blood pressure and cholesterol screenings, along with heart disease, diabetes, lung, skin and prostate cancer screenings," said Sauer. "Residents will also be encouraged to take part in walking for wellness programs, cooking and nutrition demos, smoking cessation, and stress prevention."

While Medical Mutual will not be including treatment or medication for any illness discovered during the screening process, it will advise participants of treatment options, allowing them to assess their Ohio healthcare insurance plan for appropriate inclusion

Sauer said at the conclusion of the three-year pilot program, benchmarks will have been established to measure the health of Solon citizens and the overall success of this effort. "Through screenings and HRA's, if we identify one person at risk or get one person to quit smoking, we will have done our job," said Sauer.

In addition to Medical Mutual, others supporting Healthy Solon include: Cleveland Clinic Solon Family Health Center, Solon City Schools, Hillcrest Hospital, South Pointe Hospital, AstraZeneca and Pfizer.

Founded in 1934, Medical Mutual of Ohio is one of the oldest health insurance companies in America. Based in Cleveland, Medical Mutual serves its customers through high-quality, flexible, and affordable group and personal health insurance plans, and third-party administrative services to self-insured group customers.

SuperMed One, Medical Mutual's personal health insurance product has a variety of deductibles, coinsurance, and co-pays to meet the needs of any individual or family.


How to make money blogging while you work from home

When talking about online business, work from home or affiliate market, none of these topics is complete unless the word blogging has been exhaustively used. Many bloggers run into trouble thinking that they can make loads of money by blogging but fail to put in the necessary effort.

A blog can be a cash cow. Many people have realized this and converted a hobby into a money making venture. This does not come easily though, and you need to invest a lot of effort, hard work and disappointments into the blog and blogging activity to see any outcome.

How to make money using your blog

If you learn a couple of rules and you already have or are willing to come up with a blog, then you are on your way to making money in a source that least expect. As long as you are determined to be successful, your blog cannot only be your hobby; it can be a very reliable income source. You must come up with a good blog design and take good care of it in order to see the returns it gives.

Where most entrepreneurs fail is not in setting up or the initial design of the blog but updating and improving the design. Failing to update your design will mean that bloggers will eventually get bored to visit and every time run into the same line. Changing the contents is not all that is necessary to make the blog appealing and attractive, the graphics, format and layout and pictures play a big role in making the blog look new each time and make a blogger want to visit over and over.

Advertising your blog

To get targeted traffic to your blog, you have to advertise it. If you do not advertise your blog, how will visitors even know that it exists in the first place? Once you have advertised your blog and are getting enough traffic, advertise on your blog. Adding a Google Adsense is the easiest way to generate income by directing visitors to sites that they are interested in. To get Google Adsense advertising, you will need to sign up with a Google Adsense account and they will verify that your site meets all the requirements before setting you up with an Adsense account.

Services and products

If you are selling certain products and services of your own, it is best to advertise them on your blog. Blogging regularly will ensure that search engines will index your blog and you will appear on the top results of search engines, hence more traffic. More traffic will translate to sales and that is what every entrepreneur wants.

Affiliate products

One very common way to generate blog income is through selling affiliate products. Pick products and services that pay well and are related to the contents on your blog and place their links on your blog. The commission that you will generate from these referrals can be more than you expect! hot news and trend
