October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month -- a time to remember that prevention is a woman's best protection. Monthly breast self-exams take only a few minutes, and are easy to perform. These checks -- along with an exam by your health care provider and routine mammograms -- can detect breast changes at their earliest and most treatable stages. Talk to your doctor for more information about your next screening.

August is National Immunization Month! Did you know that Immunizations are not just for kids! In fact, the CDC recommends flu vaccines to keep people of all ages healthy! The vaccines are available earlier this year so that you can get yours early and be protected for the entire year.

Designed to get kids active, fit and poised to carry good exercise habits into adulthood, campers run a mile each morning and for every five miles logged, the children receive necklace charms to mark their progress. Campers at all 32 of Miami-Dade County’s Fit2Play camps are off and running for the summer and AvMed couldn’t be prouder to support them for a fifth consecutive year! http://on.fb.me/1BKI9TW

This June, celebrate Father's Day by scheduling a physical for your Dad. Routine screenings can reduce the risk of developing heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and other conditions, and can add years to his life! He’s protected you your whole life…encourage him to take steps to protect himself, and schedule a screening today!

AvMed has denied my spouse coverage under my employees plan because we are a same sex couple! This is 2015 not 1957

School is in full swing, so it's important that your kids get at least nine to ten hours of sleep to rejuvenate their minds and bodies. Good sleep habits can improve attention, mood, and behavior. Create a routine to wind down at the end of a busy day, and make sure your child’s bedroom is conducive to sleep. Lastly, try to get your child to go to sleep every night around the same time.
Dr. Carol Ash joins TODAY to offer tips on how to break free of carefree summer schedules and get back into a regular sleep schedule.

While much attention is focused on fireworks safety (and rightfully so), there is another cause also in need of attention. July is National Purposeful Parenting Month.
