How To Stop A Nosebleed

With the recent cold burst and weather fluctuations, I've seen an increase in nosebleeds. Nosebleeds are extremely common and usually do not require medical attention. About 60% of people experience a nosebleed at some point in the their life, and only 10% of nose bleeds are serious. With this is mind, I am sharing a helpful article from the AAP to manage and prevent a nosebleed.

Health Advisory: Stop Vaping Now!!

Vaping is a serious problem and it's never to early to share the dangers and facts with your children. The CDC says e-cigarettes should never be used by youth, young adults, pregnant women or adults who do not currently use tobacco products. The American Lung Association warned that "e-cigarettes are not safe" and can cause irreversible lung damage and disease. I have included a link for parents to get the facts and an age appropriate link for teens to learn the dangers of Vaping. Thank you for your time. 
 
Kindly,
