SILVER SPRING, Md., and GAITHERSBURG, Md., Aug. 30, 2018
SILVER SPRING, Md., and GAITHERSBURG, Md., Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- White Oak Pediatrics (http://whiteoakpediatrics.com/) has more than 30 years of serving children, youth, and young adults in Maryland. Recently, Julianne Greene, a pediatric nurse practitioner with White Oak, was featured in an ABC7 News segment.
The feature was about preventing back-to-school illnesses in children. Greene, who has been with White Oak for 22 years, noted that early August sees the clinic swamped with sports and back-to-school physicals. However, it's when school starts in September when the appointments go from preventative, to treating illnesses.
A lot of the cases are preventable, Greene pointed out on the segment. When students are in a crowded environment like school, hand washing and keeping the immune system strong with a good diet, plenty of sleep, and water are imperative. Sleep, she noted, is an often-overlooked component of good health.
