Super Seniors!

The Roswell-Alpharetta National Charity League honored their senior class. The class of 2016 volunteered more than 10,800 service hours since 2010 for the philanthropies their chapter supports. Through the mother-daughter relationship, National Charity League develops strong women leaders serving and impacting communities today and for generations to come.  “The NCL has taught me the importance of community service. No matter what stage of my life, I will always remember to go out and serve the people around me because of NCL,” notes Olivia Larner, NCL senior class president. Great work girls, we are so proud of you all! NationalCharityLeague.org. Congratulations to Sarah Boland, Olivia Larner, Mackenzie Newton, Reeves Holden, Ali Stall, Riley Ruppel, Kelly Hart, Erin Maicon, Nicole Schoettler, Camille High, Kylie Reed, Haley Harris, Claire Wruble, Kathleen Najim, Megan Holzgrefe, Katie Beiger, Lexi Kingree, Katie Weger, Taylor Hannon.  Not pictured, Allison Dooling.

Get Hydrated

IV.OLOGY opened its doors recently at the Windward Parkway location. You will also see their 41’ custom Mobile Hydration Unit around town at various cycling, running, fitness and community events. IV.OLOGY was founded by  Dr. Jeff Grenwood, M.D, a board-certified emergency medicine physician, who saw a demand for hydration therapy beyond the ER. As an avid hiker, runner, a former firefighter, and medical missionary, Dr. Greenwood learned first hand through his own experiences, and those of his patients in the ER, the value of intravenous fluids compared to conventional oral hydration therapy. Realizing how much of an epidemic dehydration and vitamin deficiency has become, he founded IV.OLOGY to offer Alpharetta and the surrounding area residents convenient and affordable access to customized IV hydration and vitamin infusion therapies.  From the serious athlete to the weekend warrior, to the wellness-minded, to those suffering from a cold or chronic illness, or those just needing a boost, IV.OLOGY can benefit just about anyone.  678.840.9105, 5530 Windward Parkway, Suite 1020. IV-OLOGY.COM

New Name, Same Great Service

After helping women for 10 years, Alpharetta/Roswell-based ISIS Women’s Health Care has changed its name to Nile Women’s Health Care.The Nile river holds strong historical significance. The Egyptian civilization was born from the banks of the Nile. It is said, Moses was afforded an opportunity to live when his loving mother placed him in the river. Today the Nile provides sustenance for 11 different countries. After a suggestion from a client, the name seemed to be a perfect fit for the practice moving forward. Formerly known as Isis, Nile Women’s Health Care will build on its reputation for providing women with the educational sustenance and care they need to thrive just as the Nile river has done for centuries. As they celebrate their 10th anniversary this year, the new Nile Women’s Health Care will remain a place where women can truly experience a new type of practice. The certified midwives lavish their clients with personal attention and specialize in providing holistic care to families seeking a more natural birth experience. The top-rated doctors spend extra time in the exam room to ensure they fully understand their clients needs then offer exceptional obstetrical, gynecologic, weight loss or hormone therapy care. Nile Women’s Health Care maintains two locations in Alpharetta/Roswell and Johns Creek/Suwanee. They can be reached at 770.521.2229 and Nilewhc.com.
