On Call with Dr. Porter
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
