The truth about flatter abs

I have been writing this column for over two years now and I have come to the realization that the topics that I want to cover are endless. There are just too many to choose from. The solution to this, I have decided, is to incorporate a Q&A into my column. I would like to know what is on your mind and what you would like to know more about that will help you achieve your fitness goals.

Your Assets – your plan or someone else’s?

“Just like the state, if you don’t have a plan in writing, the IRA has a plan for you”

If the distribution of your property is important to you, you can use a will or a trust to give instructions about who gets what when you die. If you die without a properly executed estate plan, state law will determine how the probate court will divide and distribute the things you own. Of course, the state of Georgia’s estate plan won’t take your particular wishes into account. So, most people prefer to put their own plan into place.

Protecting those we love and care for

Life insurance may not seem like a romantic gift, but it could be the most precious Valentine’s gift you ever gave a loved one should something unexpected happen. It protects from financial loss in the untimely death of an income earner, caretaker, or even a business owner or key employee. Life insurance can play a critical role in a successful financial strategy.

New Electrophysiology procedure lowers risk of sudden cardiac arrest

New Electrophysiology procedure lowers risk of sudden cardiac arrest

Lawrenceville, Ga. (February 5, 2014) – Gwinnett Medical Center (GMC) recently became only the second hospital in Georgia, and the first in North Metro Atlanta, to conduct a subcutaneous implantable cardiac defibrillator (SICD) procedure. Recently approved by the FDA, SICD has advantages over the conventional implanted defibrillators in that it does not require a wire into the heart.
