Rotary Happenings: COVID-19 truths, best practices topic of meeting
The guest speaker for the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club’s recent meeting was Dr. Julie Rosenberg, who spoke about “COVID-19: Truths and Best Practices.” She relocated to Sanibel from Connecticut in 2019 and is presently advising leaders and organizations on how to maintain personal and organizational health through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rosenberg shared statistics about the American public and how they are affected by COVID-19, along with best practices in order to prevent contracting the virus. Her suggestions were to wear a face mask while out in public, preferably a N95 mask or properly fitting cloth mask that is washed daily, and to clean and disinfect touch points. Rosenberg recommended taking care of yourself by boosting your immunity by getting enough sleep, regularly exercising, practicing yoga and meditation to help with stress management, and staying connected with people. Also, eat a whole foods, unprocessed diet – as food choices are important and sugar wreaks havoc on bodies – including beneficial herbs and spices, as well as supplements.
Rosenberg is a global healthcare leader who presently serves as a senior consultant in the pharmaceutical industry. An expert in oncology drug development, she is delighted to share her passions for healthy lifestyles and well-being.
