Summertime is right around the corner

Kirk Coverston, MDSummertime is right around the corner, and all the fabulous activities, family times and fun with our children being home from school will soon start.  Many of these activities include the sun, water and outdoor exposure, so keeping our children healthy during the summer is very important.

What should we be aware of?  Safety! I have seen so many accidents and injuries that could have been prevented if only small steps were taken.

Visalia Unified students take a
tour of VMC

Mt. Whitney High School Academy of Health Science students poured from buses and were escorted through various clinical and ancillary departments at VMC. Students were able to meet with providers and staff from VMC and see behind the scenes of the departments and practices. Students interacted and asked questions as they received up-close instructions and demonstrations regarding prosthesis and physical therapy in orthopedics, Ultra- sound images, MRIs and CT scans in radiology, diabetes education and blood sugar levels, proper foot care in podiatry and more.
