Health Department Highlights



Happy New Year from the North Shore Health Department!  


Want to start the new year off right? Try one of these to improve your health in the new year: go to bed earlier, eat more fruits and vegetables, exercise more, watch less TV, eat less sweets, or cook at home more and eat out less.  Remember it takes about 21 days to make a new behavior a habit.  Stay focused and don't give up.


When it is bitterly cold outside, and you're staying inside, consider making an emergency kit.  If you haven't prepared an emergency kit for your home and car, do so now.  Go to the following web site for what's needed:  http://emergency.cdc.gov/disasters/winter/


Flu activity usually peaks between December and February, but can last as late as May.  While we hope most of you have had your flu shot, there still is time to get the flu vaccine.  It takes 2 weeks for the flu vaccine to work with your body to build up your immunity.  Call us at 414-3271-2980 to make an appointment soon!

Quotes of the Week

"May your walls know joy; May every room hold laughter and every window open to great possibility."

 -Mary Anne Radmacher-Hershey

Health Tip 


Resolve to stay in touch  with friends and family. While you may not equate this with your health, keeping in touch with those close to you provides you with the emotional support you may need all year long. 

Environmental Tip


Get off the bottled water craze. The water isn't healthier but the bottles create a huge amount of waste.
