1 App That Might Save Your Life

By Bob on October 31, 2013 4:17 AM

Sometimes you need your phone to do more than Instagram your lunch at Taco Bell and channel your Twitter musings. How about an app that could save your life? What would you say to that?

You'd say "thanks Dr. Moskowitz," because that's just what this physician has done by developing a truly beneficial and potentially life-saving iPhone app: Emergency Medical Center Locator (EMCL).

This why-didn't-I-think-of-this app helps you find the specialized emergency medical center closest to you in the event of an emergency.

There are six specialty areas in the EMCL app: Trauma, Stroke, Eye, Pediatric, Cardiac and Burn. Only the most advanced and state-of-the-art emergency care facilities with improved patient outcomes are included within the app. 

The FREE EMCL app directs you to the closest medical center best qualified to take care of your specific emergency ANYWHERE in the world.

You can view the information by looking at its map screen or directory listings. Either way, the information you need is right at your fingertips, right when you need it. 

What I Like About It

It's a comprehensive app that's already done the emergency homework for you. The app directs you to the very best care for your emergency.

Would I Use It

Yep. It's loaded on my iPhone but I hope I'll never have to use it.

Why It's Great

It's incredibly easy to use - just 2 taps on the screen gets you a list of care centers and/or a map showing their locations. Tap on the screen 3 times and you'll have complete turn-by-turn directions and the emergency center's phone number.

Why You Need It

Why WOULDN'T you need it? It's a great tool to have in the event of an emergency and best of all it's FREE.

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
