On Call with Dr. Porter

Wellness Update - - Contents -

Try not to smile when you see a tod­dler joy­ously nav­i­gat­ing an elec­tric car through a maze of ob­jects with a giddy grin on his face as wide as the Grand Canyon. There’s some­thing in­fec­tious about an in­no­cent smile. This month’s is­sue of What Doc­tors Know will cer­tainly bring a smile to your face when you read our cover fea­ture about Dr. Cole Gal­loway, an as­so­ci­ate pro­fes­sor of phys­i­cal ther­apy at the Univer­sity of Delaware who gives kids with spe­cial needs mo­bil­ity and joy. No more be­ing pushed in a mun­dane wheel chair. Th­ese kids lit­er­ally take con­trol of the wheel and hap­pily nav­i­gate from point a to point b with lit­tle ef­fort. Sum­mer is here so we’ve in­cluded some im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion about Sum­mer Safety. Read about skin care tips and the im­por­tance of hy­dra­tion. Speak­ing of hy­dra­tion, there are a lot of myths about the flu­ids we drink to beat the heat. To help you “re­think your drink”, we’ve in­cluded a com­pre­hen­sive fea­ture on liq­uids in this is­sue. This should help you not only be safe in sum­mer, but it will help you live healthy as well.

Stay safe and stay healthy this sum­mer. Steve Porter, MD Publisher and Chair­man
