opens at Seattle Center Pay 'n Save Corporation will join forces with private and public health care I organizations to launch a unique series of informative demonstrations, sit-down classes and free health checks in connection with the upcoming, free Show Me How Fair, January 28 to 30 at Seattle Center Coli- seum. This area of the Show Me How Fair will be called "Show Me Health" and is coordinated by the King County Nurses Association. "With health care costs at an all time high, we're glad to provide a place where people can receive free in- formation and health checks," said Alma Miller Ware, R.N., executive director of King County Nurses Association. "It's a fine example of the health community joining with the private sector to the benefit of the public." Among the highlights of Show Me Health will be a wheelchair obstacle course where fairgoers can learn firsthand what it's like to face common architectural barriers such as those which handicapped people must deal with regularly. The wheelchair course is spon- sored by Harborview Medical Center Rehabilita- tion Services. In a new program called the Brown Bag Project, sponsored by Washington Pharmaceutical Asso- ciation, the public is invited to bring samples of their medications to the Fair to be reviewed by registered pharmacists who will deter- mine if the prescriptions are outdated and advise where possible drug interactions may occur. Other features of Show Me Health will include lec- tures on health careers such as surgical technician, ophthalmic dispensing and physical therapy offered by area community colleges. Additionally, the American College of Nursing Mid- wives will discuss birthing alternatives. Fairg'bers will be dazzled by jazzercize demonstra- tions, a precision rope jumping team from Helen Keller Elementary School in Kirkland, Wash., and kids will enjoy the Mr. Yuk pup- pet show sponsored by the poison control center of Spokane's Deaconess Hospital. Plus there will be free blood pressure checks by King County Nurses Asso- ciation, Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) cer- tification and basic first aid classes by the American Red Cross, body fat testing by Seattle Dietetic Asso- ciation, lung capacity checks by Visiting Nurse Services and dental screen- ings by Seattle/King County Dental Association. The Show Me Health area will be located in the south- west comer of the Coliseum for the duration of the Show Me How Fair. The Fair is free and no goods or services will be sold. Fair hours will be 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday; 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Get free help with resolutions What are your New Down on Fats"; #661, Year's Resolutions?

So, why not cook it as care- fully as you shop for food? If food does not taste its best, you have really wasted a lot of time and money, says Jan Grant, King County Cooperative Extension Agent for Washington State University. How food is prepared determines the flavor and the food value. For exam- ple, how do you cook your vegetables? They are full of vitamins and flavor when you put them into the pan -- but how much is left when they are done cook- ing? If you add too much water, the vegetables can lose vitamin C and the B Quit smokin When women smoke dur- ing pregnancy, they are smoking for two, says the American Lung Association of Washington. The group will begin a special program and distribution of the "'Smoking and Pregnancy Kit" to help expectant mothers quit smoking More than 50 studies covering 500,000 births have shown that women who smoke during preg- nancy significantly increase their risks of miscarriage, stillbirth, having premature minerals. If there is any ex- tra liquid, save it for gravy or soup. Also, cook until the vege- tables are just tender, they'll taste better and have more food value. Grant says to save time and fuel, cook vegetables in a pan with a tight-fitting lid. The steam stays inside where it can do the job of cooking. However, if you want to preserve the bright green color of some vege- tables, leave the cover off for a few minutes, then put it on. Fortunately, cooking meat in no way hurts the protein -- even if you use a lot of water, as in stews. g while babies or babies with low birth weights, as well as respiratory disease syn- drome. In addition, children of smokers tend to be lower on math and ver- bal tests than children of nonsmokers. Close to a third of the 3.6 million women who become pregnant each year in this country are smokers. But neady half the women in a national survey did not know how smoking affects the outcome of pregnancy. The Smoking and Mark H. Cohn, O J). announces the opening of his Issaquah office for the practice of family optometry specializing in the fitting of hard, soft and extended wear contact lenses lost into the drippings -- which is a good reason to use those drippings in soup, gravy or sauces. By the way, you'll save more of the thiamine if you only roast meat to the rare stage in- stead of well-done. Have you ever wondered why the-package of rice gives such precise direc- tions for the amount of water to use? It's because some of the food value goes down the drain if extra water is left after cooking rice -- or other cereals. And, if you rinse the rice or cereal after you cook them, you do the same thing -- rinse food value down the drain, says Grant. in association with Theodore S. Kadet, O.D. 85 N.W.

THERAPUTIC - M-ASSAGIE- - by Christine O'e Marey, L.M.I", 1st visit Richard Michael Salon Rainer Square 623-6385 or 392-4748 The nation's largest consumer-governed health maintenance organization, Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound has taken steps to increase consumer involvement in its gover- nance by allowing indi- viduals covered by employee plans to become full voting members of the nonprofit cooperative. Group Health serves 290,000 people, approx- imately 12 percent of the population in the five- county Puget Sound region. Cooperative members are entitled to participate in GHC's governance system by voting for board members, bylaws and resolutions and by running for election to the board. Under the new policy established by its board of trustees, group subscribers $200, payable in monthly installments, as long as they receive covered health care services from Group Health Cooperative. Of the $200, $175 is refundable when cooperative members leave the program. Refunds are available as defined in the contract. Those who choose to take a health screening and pass are also offered lifetime eligibility for indi- vidual or family coverage. Currently, 76,700 of the 290,000 total are cooper- ative members. The new policy is meant to encourage greater partici- pation in the cooperatives unique method of gover- nance. According to Chief Executive Officer Gall Warden, "'Group Health's emphasis on consumer par- ticipation in decision- making is one of its become eligible to vote as. strengths. We want to insure cooperative members for that those who receive our services continue to have a strong and active voice in what those services are and how they are provided." As an illustration of how the membership can impact its own care, coverage of contraceptive drugs, devices and sterilization procedures was added to the plan in 1974 after GHC consumers documented the need, organized and con- vinced others to vote in favor of the new coverage. Since then, hundreds of group plans have included this benefit in their employee health packages with the Cooperative. Out- patient mental health ser- vices also were added to GHC's comprehensive benefits package as was a midwifery service after members proposed the benefit and recommended its inclusion at an annual meeting.
