Why bring up influenza when we are still grappling with the lingering effects of COVID-19? One of the reasons is the potential seriousness of this seasonal viral infection – something that is easy to forget when COVID-19 is still with us.
Congratulations to Dr. Sousa! The Massachusetts Medical Society awarded Dr. Sousa, a pulmonologist and critical care practitioner, with its 2022 Community Clinician of the Year for the Bristol South District. The annual recognition is given for a physician’s professionalism and contributions to medicine. We are proud to have him here at Truesdale Health.
We believe that youth sports and other activities that shape healthy minds and bodies, and health education that trains future medical professionals are important to a vibrant Fall River community.
It has officially hit the time of year where you get in your car and frantically open the windows and blast the air conditioning. While these few minutes may be uncomfortable for a grown person, it’s fatal for your child or your pet.

In Summer Sense, Volume 1, we talked about the different mechanisms the body uses to lose excess heat, the environmental conditions that can cause them to not work, and the resulting heat-related illnesses that can arise.
