In this week’s installment of the Women Are Worthy Show, esteemed host Jacqlyn Charles has a conversation with the mayor of Kennesaw, Georgia, Derek Easterling. Spending his childhood in Ft Lauderdale, Florida, Mayor Easterling worked in the carpentry business and used to build furniture and cabinets. Once graduating from high school, he entered the Navy where he claims he really grew up. The Navy helped Mayor Easterling evolve, gave him new opportunities, and developed his sense of self. He talks about his stint as a teacher and how he manages his time well, balancing his teaching, family, exercise, and all of the other activities packed into his daily schedule.
Mayor Easterling stresses that his goal as not only mayor but a citizen of Kennesaw is to ensure that everyone is successful whether it be as a homeowner, entrepreneur, etc. The city’s job is to guide and aid it’s people on their journeys to achieve their desires as citizens and are there to provide the necessary tools. In order to better service the public, citizens must be involved and engaged in their local governments and inform such governments of their needs.
Inclusivity, new fresh ideas, and creating more businesses are just a few of the many things Mayor Easterling and the city of Kennesaw have to offer it’s people!
Dr. John C Lipman discusses fibroids and treating them on the Women Are Worthy Show with host Jacqlyn Charles. During this informative conversation, Jacqlyn briefly touches on her own journey with fibroids as a Jamaican-American woman. Dr. Lipman talks about fibroids being a major issue in more women of color, specifically African-Americans due to low iron and the body not producing enough blood to replace what has been lost. His most potent advice? No matter what your doctor tells you, you DO NOT have to get a hysterectomy if you have fibroids. Dr. Lipman has a non-surgical outpatient procedure to block blood flow to fibroids in the uterus called uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) or uterine artery embolization (UAE) that takes only 30 – 45 minutes to perform. Diet and exercise also play large roles into fibroids and the pain associated with them; eating foods high in hormones could cause your body to produce excess estrogen, which could aid in the development of fibroids.
