Summer has arrived and spending time outside is a great way to be physically active, reduce stress, and get vitamin D. This is a great time to highlight that July is UV Safety Month!

Migraines impact about 40 million people in the United States, and one billion people worldwide.

National Nursing Assistants Week is a special time set aside annually to celebrate and recognize the important work that CNAs do all year long. Nursing Assistants go by many titles (CNA, LNA, RNA, HHA) but they all provide hands-on care to others who need assistance with daily tasks of care.

Now more than ever, attention is being directed to the care of our elder and disabled citizens and greater attention also is directed to the workers who provide hands-on care. This week we recognize the hard work of our Nursing Assistants.



June is National Men’s Health Month. It’s a time to raising awareness of preventable health problems and encouraging early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a whole month dedicated to making mental health is something everyone should care about. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the mental health of people of all ages.
