Why Election Funding is Important in the 2024 Election

Brianna LennonOur first guest is Brianna Lennon, county clerk of Boone County, MO. She will discuss the role of election workers as frontline defenders of democracy. Election officials across the country are hard at work preparing to uphold the security and integrity of our election system. Americans want fair elections, and 2024 is a very important election for our Republic.

Did you know that on Thursday, June 13th, the House is expected to zero out election funding for the FY25 federal budget?  This will put even more strain on election officials, who already face many challenges that could disrupt elections this year. It is so important that we all do our part this year by volunteering at the polls. You can also learn as much as possible about the candidates in your state running for office locally and nationally and where they stand on the issues that affect you and your family. For more information on what is happening in Congress, go to Faces of Democracy, and for more information on our Brianna Lennon, visit meet-the-faces-of-democracy-brianna-lennon.


Dealing with Chronic Pain

Tony MatoskaOur second guest is Tony Matoska, PT, DPT, CMPT, Certified Manual Physical Therapist, and Spine Specialty Program Manager at Athletico Physical Therapy. Were you aware that approximately 20 percent of adults in the United States are living with persistent chronic pain lasting months and even years? Chronic pain, including low back, joint, and muscle pain, can affect every aspect of daily life. Recent studies suggest it’s even more common than diabetes, hypertension, and depression. The good news is that there’s freedom from pain, and the secret is not found in a prescription or surgery: it’s movement.

Today, Mr. Matoska will discuss his PT-approved tips for effectively managing and treating pain. Tony explains why daily exercise and staying active is the best way to help prevent and reduce pain, this includes walking, weight training, yoga, Pilates, biking and much more. He also discusses your lifestyle factors, such as how your sleep, nutrition, and stress management impact chronic pain. Tony tells us why Physical therapy is so important, how you can find a holistic and tailored approach to treating pain, and why often without even needing a referral from a doctor or prescription to start treatment.
