Making the Healthy Choice
Warm weather means getting out and enjoying the outdoors. But before you have some fun in the sun, check out the online collection of videos and articles from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) in Boston with tips to stay healthy, safe and stress-free this summer.
In this special “Summer Health” section on BIDMC.org, BIDMC experts offer insight on heat-related illnesses, Lyme disease and other summer health concerns. You can also learn about protecting your eyes from the sun and avoiding common summer mishaps, such as sunburn and poison ivy.
BIDMC's online content partners — WCVB-TV Channel 5, WBZ News Radio 1030 and Boston Magazine — are also sharing summer health articles, videos and interactive tools from BIDMC experts this month.
So before you head to the beach, the mountains or just your own backyard, take a few minutes to learn how to enjoy your summer safely by going to http://www.bidmc.org/YourHealth/Health-Notes/Summer-Health.aspx.
