Family Health Tools

If taking charge of your family’s health and wellbeing is your concern and responsibility, you may not realize that you actually have a title: Family Medical Officer. This term acknowledges the important role women perform in advising and caring for everyone in the family when it comes to medical matters.

The good news is there is growing acknowledgement of this vital role and an increased effort to provide tools to empower Family Medical Officers.

In this edition of Nurse Barb’s Daily Dose, Nurse Barb discusses several medical resources at El Camino Hospital, each of which can play a role in supporting Family Medical Officers. Barb speaks with these healthcare experts: Jack Black, senior librarian; Lily Servais, genetic counselor; and Dr. Caroline Stratz. Topics covered include:

  • Hospital health library advantages
  • Family medical history
  • Mobile applications
  • Primary care provider role
  • Preventative medicine
  • HealthPerks membership
