Medical Services Resources
This week while I was at my first mammogram appointment I was blessed to have a Medical Representative named, Taylor assist me. I’ve shared previously that I had some anxiety but Taylor was great. We immediately stated chatting. I told her how about the Bawse Up Kween Community and what our mission is. Taylor was friendly but most of all very resourceful with information that I could share to with you. Sometimes our health goes on the back burner for whatever reason, “We’re too busy, I feel fine, the cost is too high, my insurance doesn’t cover it, procrastination etc...” Our health is so important and I know I have completely neglecting mine, at times. This year I’m making a conscious effort to do better and be in the know about my health. These resources are great.
