Along with the extra hustle and bustle of the holidays comes an increased likelihood that injuries will occur. People are distracted, moving quickly, gathered together in closer quarters, and often times over caffeinated and loaded down with sugary treats. Integrity Urgent Care has a few ways to avoid some of the most common holiday injuries because, as much as we love our clients, we don’t want you to miss out on any time with family and friends!
A day at the beach is something many people look forward to about summer. It’s a great way to spend time together as a family for a few hours or several days. But, like many things, there can be a “down” side to spending time at the beach if you end up with a sunburn, jellyfish sting, water-born illness, or some other not-so-fun souvenir of your time. Being safe can prevent injuries and drowning.
Our last blog focused on the importance of staying safe during these summer days – or any days – when you’re out in the sun. Using sunscreen anytime you’re outside probably doesn’t even require a second thought, but this blog will discuss a few of the finer points of sunscreen use to help you choose the one(s) that’s right for you.

We’ve moved beyond the availability of information at the touch of your fingertips, to availability using the sound of your voice. What are the implications of voice command technology for healthcare? Voice command assistants have the potential to revolutionize patient care – both at home and in inpatient settings – by increasing efficiency and allowing for easier access to medical information.
It’s February, and hearts are everywhere urging you to spread the love! But we’re not talking only about the feelings of love between families, friends, and the special “someone” we celebrate on Valentine’s Day. February is also American Heart Month, a national observance sponsored by the American Heart Association to promote awareness about heart disease and steps people can take to prevent it.
Along with resolutions for the New Year come predictions on trends for everything from fashion to home furnishings to relationships to food and diet. In 2018 we saw trends like kombucha, veganism, and Latin American cuisine. At the beginning of 2019, virtually every facet of the food and beverage industry “weighs in” on what the year’s hot trends will be. While some of these trends seem to be little more than a wild guess, there is some agreement on what will make the in-list. But remember, food forecasting is in no way an exact science.
