Zac Efron Is A Seksi & Sweaty Doctor In Intense Parkland Trailer!

Filed under: Film FlickersZac Efron

Zac Efron's condition is critically seksi as he plays a doctor in the new trailer for Parkland! He can certainly give us a physical any day o' the week!

Zac plays the young attending physician on duty at the Parkland Memorial Hospital the day JFK was shot, and brought under his care. In addition, Parkland is where JFK's assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was sent after being shot himself, and where he also died just two days after JFK.

Parkland harkens back (and to the left) to that fateful November day in 1963, telling the tale of the Presidential assassination through the eyes of the lesser known but influential men and women who endured that awful day in Dallas.

We can't wait to see Zac and the rest of his stellar fellow cast members when this historical movie comes out on September 20th!

In the meantime, ch-ch-check out some stills from the movie (BELOW)!

Walmart May Or May Not Become A Major Healthcare Provider

Filed under: Business BlitzHealth

Walmart healthcare

Walmart is making MIGHT be making moves to become a major healthcare provider!

Sources reported that the largest retailer in the U.S. sent out a request for potential partners last month that would help the chain become "the largest provider of primary care services in the nation." According to the document from the company:

"Walmart intends to build a national, integrated, low-cost primary care healthcare platform that will provide preventative and chronic care services that are currently out of reach for millions of Americans. Walmart intends to do this in an affordable and accessible way while maintaining or improving quality outcomes. Walmart seeks partners who have a care model or capability that can help dramatically drive down the cost of care, while maintaining or improving quality on a national level."

Shoppers could have expected services including simple physicals, urine tests, and vaccinations, but now we're not so sure.

Since the story broke, Walmart is DENYING their healthcare expansion plans and have called the document that outlines their plans "overwritten and incorrect."

In a recent statement, the senior vice president & president of Walmart U.S. health & wellness said, "We are not building a national, integrated, low-cost primary care health care platform."

Hmm…guess we'll have to wait and see what Walmart has up their sleeve!

Fran Drescher's Fit Tips For A Healthier Lifestyle

Regular visits to the doctor are an integral part of maintaining good health. Without that trip, you might not find out about life threatening illnesses or diseases until it's TOO LATE!

For some people, however, going to the doctor is scarier than death itself!

Lorraine from New York is having trouble overcoming her fear of the doctors office, so she wrote FitPerez health correspondent Fran Drescher for advice, asking:

I know I should go to the doctor, but I’m just so nervous to go. How do I overcome the fear?

According to Fran:

Tina, nobody loves to go to the doctor. (Unless he/she is a good looking, single and loves your dog Fluffy!) But you need to realize the only person who can take care of your body is YOU!

Bring a trusty friend with you to your appointment and always go prepared with questions, especially if you haven’t been feeling like your usual self. And believe me, your body WILL tell you when there’s something wrong. If you don’t feel like your doctor is giving you the attention or answers you deserve, find another physician.

It’s not personal, it’s your life! Your doctor should make you feel comfortable, informed and motivated to be and stay healthy.
