Health Matters: Heat-related Illness

Heat-related disease and illness affects people of all ages. From toddlers to teens and seniors, summer temperatures are a major factor in health issues. This week Mark Adams, environmental health director for the City of Canton, is our guest on the Health Matters program. Mark discusses the importance of hydration in people with chronic illnesses as well as mosquito-born diseases and how to safely remove ticks. The Medicine Center Pharmacy focuses on patient health, and whether you’re spending the weekend camping, swimming, fishing or gardening, we want our listeners to stay healthy this summer.
