Focus Total Health Founder Helps Women Across the World

Dr. Melissa Miskell, owner and founder of Focus Total Health in San Antonio and New Braunfels, Texas, investigated the healthcare needs of women around the world.

San Antonio, United States - September 12, 2019 /PressCable/ —

Dr. Melissa Miskell, is the owner and founder of Focus Total Health. Focus Total Health is a gynecology and hormone replacement medical practice in New Braunfels and San Antonio, Texas. While her normal day job keeps her busy with women needing general gynecology services here in the United States, she began to look at the healthcare needs of women around the world.

What she discovered was shocking. Cervical cancer screening doesn’t exist in most developing nations. One of the simplest healthcare services that women here in the U.S. get (a pap smear), is not even possible in these nations. This causes a high mortality rate for the women, who are the primary bread winners and caretakers of the family unit. In fact, cervical cancer killed 265,000 women last year.

Dr. Miskell decided that she needed to make a difference. So over 9 years ago, she began to work with an organization called PINCC (Prevention International No Cervical Cancer). This group organizes trips into developing nations to teach the local medical personnel how to identify and treat signs of cervical cancer. To be precise, PINCC leads teams of five to fifteen volunteers to hospital and clinic sites in Africa, Latin America and Asia. Teams are composed of physicians, mid-level practitioners, educators, and volunteers. PINCC focuses on medical education in tandem with treatment.

Today, Dr. Miskell is the head of PINCC. She has trained approximately 700 medical personnel. She certified 40 clinics in Africa, Latin America and Asia to identify and treat cervical cancer. PINCC sites continue to provide services to thousands of women every year.

PINCC creates sustainable programs that continue to be ongoing throughout the world. Cervical cancer kills 265,000 women every year and is expected to increase by 67% to 450,000 in the next 12 years. Cervical cancer is a global issue that affects world economy. Why? Women are the primary source of income and stability in developing countries. PINCC has ongoing training sites in Kenya, Tanzania and Cambodia. Proposed sites include Ghana, Rwanda, India and Guatemala.

Dr. Miskell encourages every woman to make sure that she gets her annual gynecology exam. “Cervical cancer screening is such a simple process that saves lives,” she says.

Sep 18, 2019

NEW YORK — The new television season hasn't begun yet, but the football season has, and it's carrying the networks in the interim. The Nielsen company says four NFL games finished among its top 12 prime time shows last week, led by the Sunday night matchup between Philadelphia and Atlanta.

NBC won the network ratings race for the week with football and "America's Got Talent."

Beckham puts on show in MetLife return, Browns top Jets 23-3

Sep 18, 2019

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Odell Beckham Jr. had an 89-yard touchdown catch and a spectacular one-handed grab in his return to MetLife Stadium, and Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns did just enough to beat the short-handed and banged-up New York Jets 23-3 on Monday night. Beckham, traded from the Giants in March, helped the Browns (1-1) bounce back from a 30-point loss to Tennessee in their opener to top the Jets (0-2). New York lost quarterback Trevor Siemian to an ankle injury in the second quarter, and Luke Falk — promoted from the practice squad earlier in the day...

Video deleted from Minnesota first lady's tense policy forum

Sep 18, 2019

ST. PAUL, Minn. — A deleted video from a forum that turned tense over racial issues demonstrates some of the political risks in Minnesota first lady Gwen Walz's push for criminal justice reform. Walz and staffers in the governor's office wanted to promote an upcoming PBS documentary about rigorous college coursework for prison inmates because they want to replicate the concept in Minnesota — and to raise her profile as a leader on criminal justice issues. But not everything went according to plan. Minnesota Public Radio reported Monday that a forum at Twin Cities Public Television one day last May...

Morgan Spurlock takes a second bite of the fast food world

Sep 18, 2019

NEW YORK — Last time out, documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock ate only fast food for a month. This time, he's the one dishing out the fried stuff. Spurlock has gone from being an avid Big Mac consumer in "Super Size Me" to serving his own chicken sandwiches in "Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!" — a sober look at an industry that processes 9 billion animals a year in America. "I think the intention is to kind of give you a different perspective of the fast-food world — the fast-food commodity world — from a much more corporate point of...
