Woman to woman: Family health
Katie Carpenter | 05.20.13
Women play many roles when caring for the health of their family.
Women are oftentimes the main healthcare provider for the entire family. That can entail making doctor and dental appointments, not only for the kids, but for a spouse, aging parents, and pets as well.
Judy Haverstick, RN, BSN, a Clinical Coordinator for Corporate and Community Wellness at PinnacleHealth System, provides some insight into balancing it all, based on her own experiences.
Haverstick says “I think one of the greatest rewards is seeing my family healthy. And, when they’re health, they’re happy. And, with our kids, we’re building a pattern with them of healthy habits that they will pass on to their family.”
She’s proud of creating a legacy of health with her kids, and says that playing the role of healthcare provider for her family is very rewarding.
