Happy new year! Yes, we’re still a few flips of the calendar page away from December 31st. But, hey, let other people look forward to watching the ball drop 4 months from now — if you’re a parent, you know the real new year starts the day your kids go back to school! Before the chaos of sports practices, spirit weeks and state testing, take a moment and appreciate the promise of a fresh start. This is a great time to sketch out goals and plans for the whole family and set some healthy checkpoints to keep you on track until next summer. Join us for a free health lecture with Eddie Needham, MD, FAAFP, to discuss recommended medical appointments and screenings that will help you feel ready and feel whole for the months ahead. If you’re healthy and happy, the rest of the family will have a good shot at being healthy and happy, too.
