With summer just around the corner, it’s a great time to reinvigorate your commitment to health and safety. Here at Get Healthy, Stay Healthy, we are looking forward to trips to the beach, relaxing weekends with friends and family, longer hours of sunlight, and all the wonderful activities the season brings, including biking, hiking, and traveling. And we are committed to participating fully in summer with a goal of staying healthy.
This summer, make sure you are up-to-date on a variety of health safety matters. Check out our new content on childhood injuries, family emergency plans, and bug bites. Our content on healthy aging will remind you that no matter what your age, it’s important to incorporate healthy living habits into your life.
Of course, we have all become much more conscious these days about protecting our body from the sun. Whether it’s a vacation to a sunny location or just a car ride during the day, make sure your skin is protected with sunscreen or clothing. If travel is on your radar, don’t forget to think about keeping your health a priority while traveling—so check out our content on medical travel tips. Finally, if this is the time of year when you have your routine wellness appointment, be sure to read our new content on optimizing your doctor visits.
We hope you have a great summer of fun and good health. Be sure to come back during these warm months as we continue to write about the topics that are relevant to your life and health.
As always, we’re very happy that you're part of our wellness community.
Caroline Pak, PharmD
