Monterey Program of Executive Health Offers World-class medicine, world-class destination

Dr. Geiler and Team Encourage Patients To Get Healthy

Monterey, CA, September 07, 2014 - A distinctive program designed to give clients an efficient and comprehensive medical evaluation in one of the most coveted resort and golf destinations in the country, The Monterey Program for Executive Health approaches preventative medical care with patients’ time and comfort in mind. The elite physicians at The Monterey Program spend a full day with the patient to complete comprehensive screening, imaging and other advanced diagnostics—all in a sanctuary setting.

“Our goal at the Monterey Program is to help our clients fully understand their medical picture, so they can convert that knowledge into action,” Dr. Geiler says.

In addition to undergoing the most advanced diagnostics in the medical industry, the client is given a comprehensive risk-factor assessment that analyzes family and patient medical histories and current lifestyle habits. Experienced, licensed professionals evaluate the status of patients’ nutrition and fitness levels and work with the physicians to create tailored lifestyle suggestions that integrate seamlessly into their often busy daily routines. The client and doctor will then work together to develop a personalized wellness plan that includes a discussion of risk factors and illness prevention.

When the evaluation is complete, the client receives an extensive, customized medical report with a health profile, results, interpretations and recommendations for follow-up care. This detailed report of the patient’s evaluation is conveniently stored as a digital file on a small flash drive.

As an additional service, the Monterey Program offers corporate packages for businesses to provide to their top executive officers. The program can turn essential preventative care into a productive and relaxing corporate retreat.

Tips For A Healthy You:
1. Find Your Motivation.  Get clear about what you want, and then use that to inspire you throughout your journey.

2. Have a Plan. Before January 1st arrives, outline the changes you want to implement and decide how you'll fit them into your schedule. Keep in mind that it may be best to take steps rather than tackle everything at once.

3. Make Goals. Goals help measure progress.

4. Track What You Eat. Looking closely at what you eat is often an eye-opening experience.

5. Use Reliable Resources. Find a reliable source of information to help you understand nutrition.

6. Eat Breakfast Every Day. Breakfast will give you more energy, lead you to make healthier choices during the day, and keep you feeling full so you eat less later on.

7. Fill Up on Vegetables. Vegetables are filled with nutrients, water, fiber, and very few calories.

8. Exercise. In order to burn calories at a faster rate and build a healthy body, you'll need to incorporate exercise into your life.

9. Take It Slow.  You want to make permanent changes, and these will take time to implement.

10. Be Prepared for Lapses. Every day is a new chance to start over, so return to your healthy lifestyle immediately.

Sankofa.Org Issues Statement Urging Artists and People to Stand up and Demand Social Justice in Ferguson

We at, along with the rest of the world, have been riveted and dismayed upon witnessing the blatant oppression in Ferguson, MO of people, mostly Black Americans who have attempted to peacefully demonstrate and stand up for the violation of their natural civil and human rights.

New York, NY, September 07, 2014 – We at, along with the rest of the world, have been riveted and dismayed upon witnessing the blatant oppression in Ferguson, MO of people, mostly Black Americans who have attempted to peacefully demonstrate and stand up for the violation of their natural civil and human rights. Sankofa is deeply heartbroken that yet another black mother and father has suffered the pain and death of their unarmed child as a result of a questionable and unmitigated act of violence. Our hearts go out to all the family and friends of Michael Brown. applauds the courage and bravery of the Ferguson community who have united together and also galvanized a national and international outcry to end the militarization by the police and restore hope and peace in their community.

“We appreciate all the artists and people alike who are heeding our call and speaking out to answer the question, What Do You Stand For?” says Co-Director, Gina Belafonte. One of’s core missions is to end systemic violence in our society. believes, like its founder Harry Belafonte, that as a community of artists we must be a counterbalance, a communication channel, to inform, educate, inspire and empower. intends to do its part to re-ignite the kind of activism that just doesn’t petition for a “more perfect union,” but demands it. As Martin Luther King, Jr., stated succinctly, “Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom."

Raoul Roach, Co-Director stated, “Although we applaud the move by the Justice Department to open a Civil Rights investigation into policing practices in Ferguson and surrounding communities, we see this as only a first step.” It is now the people’s responsibility to make the “State” (i.e., local, state and federal authorities), accountable to its citizenry, and make it clear that we demand swift action. That demand will only be taken seriously if we make the State uncomfortable in its ability to delay justice and allow oppression to continue in communities like Ferguson. is working and building coalitions on the ground in Ferguson and around the country. The organization recently sent artists and activists to Missouri to assess, connect and identify indigenous leadership and work with them to find tactical solutions that will hopefully bring true and lasting empowerment to the Ferguson community. is also continuing to convene meetings beyond Ferguson to identify meaningful support and resources. urges citizens of the United States and the world to join this necessary movement, to be fervently persistent and to let the people’s voices ring loudly and continue to demonstrate for justice. We encourage artists and activists to speak out, organize and use their tools and craft to support communities like Ferguson. We will not end social injustice unless we maintain our vigilance and leverage our political, economic and cultural strength to demand and achieve non-violent and lasting change.

Sankofa is a social justice organization founded by iconic activist/entertainer Harry Belafonte that enlists the support of today's most celebrated artists and influential individuals in collaboration with grassroots partners to elevate the voices of the disenfranchised, and to promote peace and equality.
