The holidays are in full swing, which means celebrations, gatherings, time with loved ones, and… cold and flu season (womp, womp). With various illnesses going around and more time spent in groups, it’s more important than ever to build up a strong immune system that will carry you through the sick season and remain healthy and thriving.
As flu and cold season approaches, maintaining the health of the immune system is vitally important. In this seminar, registered dietitian Christaney Townsend will address proper nutrition for enhancing and supporting the immune system to help prevent winter illnesses and to stay as healthy as possible through the coldest months of the year.
PALM has been approved to administer the vaccine, and we are eagerly awaiting news as to when we will receive it. Once we do, we will offer it to PALM members who meet the requirements of each phase of the rollout. For more information on the phases of vaccine rollout, please refer to the State of Missouri planned phases.
Our Chief Medical Officer and PALM Health medical team have put together a list of frequently asked questions about the new COVID-19 vaccine, in order to keep you updated and informed with the latest information.
What more can you do to stay healthy? Dr. Sita Kedia and Dr. Lauren Dal Farra recommend these tips to support your immune system: eat well, hydrate, sleep, reduce stress, maintain healthy nutrition, and protect your mental health.
The health and happiness of our PALM community continues to be at the forefront of my mind each day. With the pandemic enduring at a greater intensity than hoped, we are all coping with chaos and new daily challenges. It’s clear that COVID-19 has impacted us all, but to varying degrees: some among us have lost loved ones; others have been sick; some have suffered from isolation; others have lost jobs; and everyone has had to modify plans and social interactions.
As we move into the middle of summer, we are all witnessing COVID-19 continue to spread throughout the country. I am sure this has raised concerns and questions for you and your loved ones, as it has for so many in our community. I’d like to take this moment to address some frequently asked questions, and hopefully provide you with knowledge that can help you feel informed and empowered.
The health and safety of our members and staff continues to be our top priority. To that end, we are gradually reopening services based upon our confidence in maintaining a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for all. Please read below for details.
