Summer Celebrations

A Note from the Medical Editor

If your summer celebrations include a day at the beach, barbecuing with friends, or watching the fireworks this 4th of July, remember to bring along plenty of sunscreen and water while enjoying the great outdoors under the sun.

After the brutal winter we had, it is time to enjoy the warm weather, be safe, and have fun.
