Global Public Health

Johnson & Johnson’s Continued Commitment to Global Public Health

I have talked about my family’s love of Johnson & Johnson countless times on this blog because I love the brand’s products, the company’s history, and what they stand for. Now what I have learned about the impact they have made on Global Public Health makes me love this brand even more! As a mom of a child with chronic health issues, I am constantly thinking about how to keep my family healthy and happy. Knowing the impact Johnson & Johnson has had on public health, as well as knowing that they continue to stay committed to Global Public Health today is something that makes me a loyal consumer.

How I am staying Intouch With Family and Friends

Hey sports moms, has fall practices started for your family yet?  My daughter’s cheer schedule came out last week and it has me sitting on a field for 2 hours a night 4 nights a week.  Now I love to support her and I am fully decked out in team colors and spirit sticks on game days and at competitions, but sitting on those bleachers at every practice can be the epitome of boredom.  I tried working from the field last year but it drained my data quickly and I realized I don’t have the concentration to work as my daughter is getting thrown in the air and my son and getting tackled.  Then there was social media and other mindless games that I tried, I was still bored and feeling kind of guilty about the chunk of time I was pretty much wasting because I am not allowed on the field.  Then this week I downloaded Words With Friends 2 and now I am totally hooked!

Johnson & Johnson Making History in the 8’s

I have been learning a lot about the amazing history of Johnson & Johnson recently. While I have always expressed that Johnson & Johnson has been a trusted brand in my family, that loyalty was based on the generations before me using their products. Now that I am learning more about how much of an impact Johnson & Johnson had in moving our country forward in health care and equality, I realize that the brand loyalty that was started generations ago probably had little to do with how great their baby wash smelled.

Health and Wellness of Women generations

Caring for the Health and Wellness of Women for Generations!

I grew up like most children, being bathed with the trusted yellow bottle of Johnson’s Baby Shampoo. When I was pregnant with my oldest child, the first thing my grandmother bought me was that same bottle of baby shampoo. I always knew that Johnson & Johnson was a trusted brand throughout generations in my family, like many other families, however, I never knew the story of Johnson & Johnson and how much of an impact they have had on the health and well-being of women for well over a century.

As a society we have come a long way with women’s health and well-being, however, a lot of that began with Johnson & Johnson. From maternity kits, BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages, and sanitary napkins to providing women a workplace, for over 130 years, Johnson & Johnson has become a trusted brand in so many homes because so many generations have been touched by their products and brand.

What-is-Sepsis

What is Sepsis

Infections put you and your family at risk for a life-threatening condition called sepsis. Anyone can get an infection, and almost any infection can lead to sepsis. Did you know that more than 1.5 million people in America get sepsis each year?  That number alone seems astonishing, but the fact that at least 250,000 people die as a result is heartbreaking.

I spent a lot of time in and out of hospitals with my grandmother in my late teens and early twenties.  I was her healthcare proxy and one of her main caregivers. I remember some of the faces I would get when I showed up at the hospital after getting a phone call in the middle of the night.  I got quite a few comments from nurses about being an 18-year-old taking on medical decisions, but most people just didn’t understand the bond my Nana and I had.
