Tobacco dependence is a severe chronic illness. It reduces sports performance, stains fingers and teeth, increases cough, increases asthma, and decreases senses of taste and smell. Over the long term it causes cancer, heart disease, strokes, impotence, premature aging and early death. It harms not just the health of the smoker, but everyone around them.

Stretching has traditionally been an integral part of pre-game and practice warm-up routines. Today, most coaches employ a multimodal warm-up routine, that is, aerobic exercise (running), stretching, and ballistic (bouncing or hopping) movements. The conventional wisdom behind stretching is that it helps prepare the muscles for maximum effort, and helps to prevent injuries.
At Texas Children's Hospital, in addition to the care and safety of our patients, we also view the safety of everyone visiting and working in our hospital to be a top priority. That's why before opening outpatient services at the Pavilion for Women, we conducted realistic, emergency response simulation sessions to give our team valuable hands-on response experience in our new facility.
