• Save your eyes
The most important thing you can do for yourself is to get an annual eye exam. Most Americans do not know the risks and warning signs of diseases - like diabetes, glaucoma, cataracts and age-related macular degeneration - that could blind them if they don't seek timely detection and treatment, according to recent findings of the Survey of Public Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices Related to Eye Health and Disease.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services expanded Medicare coverage of evidence-based tobacco cessation counseling, removing a barrier to treatment for all tobacco users covered by Medicare.
Before today’s decision, Medicare had covered tobacco counseling only for individuals diagnosed with a recognized tobacco-related disease or showed signs or symptoms of such a disease. Under the new coverage, any smoker covered by Medicare will be able to receive tobacco cessation counseling from a qualified physician or other Medicare-recognized practitioner who can work with them to help them stop using tobacco. All Medicare beneficiaries will continue to have access to smoking-cessation prescription medication through the Medicare Prescription Drug Program (Part D).

Joe DioGuardi, Conservative Party nominee and GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate, today outlined his jobs agenda while touring the Hipotronics manufacturing facility in Brewster, N.Y. "Job growth is lagging because the government has absorbed private investment capital through increased taxes and a skyrocketing national debt," said DioGuardi. "We need to allow entrepreneurs, small business owners and large companies to invest in new product lines and a new workforce. Senator Gillibrand has voted twice to raise the debt ceiling and she voted for Obama's $787 billion 'stimulus' bill. Her actions in Washington have only placed heavier financial burdens on job creators and American taxpayers. She has not put New York back to work, but as one of the Empire State's two U.S. Senators, I will."
