BCBS Looks For Children With Healthy Lifestyles

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is looking for kids who should be recognized for their commitment to living a health, active lifestyle.

And then each month, one inspirational child will be selected as their Michigan Kids Can Champion of the Month.

#MIKidsCan is Blue Cross' statewide initiative to encourage everybody in Michigan to help the kids in their lives make healthier choices, like choosing healthy foods and making sure they get 60 minutes of active play every day.

Seven–year–old Isabelle Sarkody of Woodhaven, Michigan was selected as the May champion of the month and now Blue Cross Blue Shield is looking for other children who make healthy habits fun, so they can become a model to everyone in Michigan.

"Building healthy habits in kids when they're young is so important to bending the trend that we're seeing, which is a bad one. We want to bend the trend of obesity in Michigan that drives up healthcare costs and impacts, in a negative way, people's quality of life," VP of BCBS Corporate Communications Andrew Hetzel said.

Nearly one in three children in Michigan are overweight or obese, putting them at greater risk for chronic health problems.

Blue Cross Blue Shield wants to change this and you can help by nominating a kid you know at ahealthiermichigan.org/mikidscan, for them to have a chance to win champion of the month and show off their healthy habits.

AHS ROV Team To Compete In NASA Headquarters

As previously reported, Alpena High School's ROV Team recently won the Marine Advanced Technology Education New England Regional ROV Contest and now they're getting ready to attend the MATE Center's 15th Annual International Student ROV Competition.

The AHS team will compete against more than fifty teams around the world using an ROV they designed and built this past school year.

The international competition is being held the weekend of June 23rd in Houston, Texas at the NASA Johnson Space Center's Buoyancy Lab.

This year the contest focuses on how technologies developed for use in the ocean, can also be used in outer space ... and vice versa.

This is the fifth year that AHS ROV Team has participated in the international competition.

"I think that this team really teaches the students a lot about engineering and marine life and kind of preserving and protecting eco systems, especially since it's through NOAA. I think from a team work stand point though we really learn how to work together and utilize each other's talents in order to get the job done," Sophomore Engineer Katie Nicholson said.

In NASA, at 200 feet long, 100 feet wide, 40 feet deep and holding 6 point 2 million gallons of water, the team will be piloting their vehicle in the largest swimming pool in the world.

Students plan to head south as soon as the school year ends in a few weeks, and we'll be sure to report their winnings when they return.

ARMC Pediatric Associates Moves To Main Campus

The office of ARMC Medical Group Pediatric Associates on Long Rapids Road is moving to a new location on the campus of MidMichigan Medical Center – Alpena.

This move has been in the works for a few years now, but starting June 6th patients should come to the new location for all appointments.

The new offices are located on the second floor of the Health Resource Center.

This new location offers patients convenient access to labs and other hospital services while enabling the pediatricians to be more accessible for inpatient care, including in–hospital visits for newborns.

"Having pediatricians on site, on our campus to care for either the ED or nursery patients as deliveries happen, to not have to jump in their car and drive over to the hospital is very important and so bringing them on sight was a goal for us so we're pretty happy to be able to do that," VP of Medical Affairs Dr. Richard Bates said.

Two physicians, Dr. Nicholson and Dr. Conboy and Nurse Practitioner Lacey Mersino will be moving to campus.

An additional pediatrician will be joining the group at their new location in July.

Patients can find the new office by using the health resource center entrance and then take the elevator or stairs to the second floor, right across from the OB/Gyn office.
