by family physician Dr. Aletha Cress Oglesby,
exploring and sharing the HEART of health in ways that are
like watercress -unique, zesty, and nutritious.
I help people navigate health care with information and inspiration to transform health challenges into health opportunities.
Watercress is one of several types of cress, edible green plants that grow near water. Although not widely eaten in today’s diets, nutrition experts tell us it’s rich in vitamins and minerals and may play a role in cancer prevention and controlling high blood pressure and diabetes, the two most prevalent chronic diseases. So the title Watercress Words seemed to fit a health blog; and besides, my family name is Cress.
