David Anthony Miranda Shares Advice for Seasonal Wellness

David Anthony Miranda | Maintaining health and wellness is important year-round, but never more vital than during the cold, winter months. From remaining motivated to stay active, to battling the possibility of seasonal bouts of depression, Dr. Miranda explores five ways to remain healthy from now until spring arrives.

 

“First and foremost,” says Miranda, an emergency locum physician from Texas, “don’t let diet and exercise fall by the wayside.”

 

Healthy eating habits and maintaining a level of fitness are essential during the winter months according to Dr. Miranda, especially in the fight against colds and flu. “Look for foods high in omega 3 fatty acids which are a natural anti-inflammatory, and eat regular fiber as this is known to boost immune system function,” he adds.

 

David Anthony Miranda also recommends scheduling exercise ahead of time, perhaps on a weekly basis, and sticking to a routine. “Try to keep this up until spring,” adds the physician.

 

Next says Dr. Miranda, maintain regular hand washing. “Cold and flu viruses spread rapidly during winter, especially in warm indoor areas such as offices or other workplaces,” he adds. By engaging in regular hand washing, not only is an individual protecting themselves from a bout of potential illness, but they’re also preventing the spread of the same illness or illnesses between others.

Further to maintaining healthy eating habits, David Miranda also suggests vitamin supplements. “Vitamins C and D are especially good during winter,” he explains, “boosting immunity and countering the effects of the seasonal reduction in daylight.”

 

Vitamin D is also known to assist in the absorption of other important vitamins, especially helpful during winter.

 

Fourth, David Anthony Miranda advises focusing on sleep. “Getting adequate rest during winter is important, but it’s a struggle for many due to the changes in daylight hours,” he says. To counter this, the doctor suggests establishing a routine and abiding by it, taking time to wind down before bed and rising at the same time each day until spring comes back around.

 

Lastly, says Dr. Miranda, get social. “Winter can feel lonely and isolating for many people. So remembering to socialize regularly is a good way to improve mood, boosting feelings of well-being and promoting better overall health,” he adds, wrapping up.

A recent report has revealed what it’s claimed are this year’s top three Texas-based medical schools.

A recent report by U.S. News, a multi-platform publisher of news and information, has revealed what it claims to be the three best medical schools in the state of Texas. Named as the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and Baylor College of Medicine, Dr. David Miranda, a resident of Travis County, Texas, explores the results.

The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston ranks third, according to U.S. News.

Comprised of McGovern Medical School, the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, UTHealth School of Dentistry, UTHealth School of Nursing, UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics and UTHealth School of Public Health, the Houston-based science center ranks well with a faculty-student ratio of 1.4:1, boasting over 1,500 full- and part-time staff.

Dr. Miranda further reveals that the university has a current full-time enrollment of 966 students and an average tuition cost of approximately $26,000.

Rated second of the three, the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center sits on a 100-acre campus in Dallas. The institution is comprised of UT Southwestern Medical School, UT Southwestern Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and UT Southwestern School of Health Professions.

With a strong faculty-student ratio, the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center employs in excess of 2,650 full- and part-time staff. This puts the institution’s faculty-student ratio at 2.5:1, explains Dr. Miranda. Full-time enrollment is just below 940, with average tuition costs of around $32,000, according to the report.

Topping the rankings and named best medical school in the state of Texas for 2018 by U.S. News is Baylor College of Medicine.

Another Houston-based institution, Baylor College of Medicine is comprised of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, the School of Allied Health Sciences, and the National School of Tropical Medicine. Initially established in 1900, the school has a long and varied history, Dr. Miranda reveals. Enrollment of 736 equals an impressive faculty-student ratio of 3.1:1, with 2,785 staff and average tuition costs approaching $30,000.

A further report by U.S. News also ranks Baylor College of Medicine fifth in the U.S. in ‘Best Medical Schools: Primary Care,’ tied with Oregon Health and Science University, points out Dr. Miranda, who studied medicine at Cornell University Medical College, New York.

Over the course of 30 years in medicine, Dr. David Miranda has spent time in New York, Mississippi, California, and elsewhere across the U.S. He currently resides in Travis County, Texas. The physician is a partner of Fit-Life MD, a medical wellness and fitness clinic in San Antonio, Texas.

Dr. David Anthony Miranda explains care in medically underserved communities

By | David Miranda | No Comments

In serving predominantly rural, often medically underserved communities, Dr. David Anthony Miranda has traveled tens of thousands of miles across the U.S.

A highly experienced physician, Dr. David Anthony Miranda has spent three decades driven by a desire to care for underserved, predominantly rural populations. Subsequently, and as a direct result of his experiences, the doctor has gone on to forge a career as a highly respected emergency locum physician.

“Starting out as an undergraduate at the University of California in Los Angeles, I would volunteer tutoring math and science to disadvantaged high school students in the city,” reveals Dr. Miranda. Going on to attend medical school at Cornell University Medical College in New York City, followed by a residency at North Shore University Hospital, the doctor ultimately completed trauma rotations at Lincoln Hospital.

“At Lincoln Hospital, I found enrichment in taking care of individuals from economically stressed and medically underserved communities,” says the emergency locum physician of his time at the hospital.

Fresh out of residency, a young Dr. David Anthony Miranda took his first post-residency position in South Mississippi. “I quickly found myself working within rural populations and with very limited specialty back-up,” he explains. It was here, the doctor says, that he honed his ability to become independent in practice, going on to forge a career as a highly self-reliant emergency medical physician.

“More recently, I was selected by a prominent provider of emergency medicine and critical care services to leading hospital systems in the South Central U.S.,” says Dr. Miranda, “to spearhead their newly reorganized locums’ division.”

Dr. Miranda was selected after being identified as a fast, efficient, flexible, and dependable emergency physician, thanks in no small part to his time spent working in medically underserved communities.

With prior experience working in over ten different emergency departments within the region, the doctor went on to further hone his skills surrounding rapid adaptation. “Adapt and overcome was the goal,” he reveals, “starting up new contracts and turning around existing, distressed agreements.”

“This,” he adds in conclusion, “I was, therefore, able to do with great success.”

Over the course of 30 years in medicine, Dr. Miranda has spent time in New York, Mississippi, California, and elsewhere across the U.S. He currently resides in Travis County, Texas.
