One of our Uechi instructors invented this neat medical medallion. <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote

If you or someone you know has a medical problem, this medalion might be something you should have. <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote
Following an accident or injury, precious time is often lost by emergency responders, as they seek answers about the person's blood type, whether he or she is on medication, has a pre-existing medical condition or has allergies. Some medical procedures must be withheld until certain information is obtained on their accident victims.

I'm looking to wear a medallion that certifies I am in perfect health. Nothing less will do.

That is a great idea!! How about this one. What I have is a bracelet, like an ID bracelet but it has a medical medalion on it. I typed out all my important medical history on the computer, small type. It has my Dr., where I am treated, my illness, all my medicines and dosage, who to contact in emergency, address, phone number and any other important info. It is all folded up like an accordian and put in the bracelet. I can bring it up to date, having saved the info, make any changes as necessary. The doctors and hospitals love it, whenever they ask what meds you are taking, just hand them the paper and they copy it. Since then, I have made up an info card for my wife, about the size of a driver's license, and then laminated it with that clear plastic stuff. She keeps it in her wallet and again just gives it to the doctor and they copy it. Saves all kind of time and keeps everything up to date and solves the problem of forgetting some meds or other important info. Try it, you'll like it!!
