Make sure your body is all set for the Annual Bulldog 5K charity run at the McCarthey Athletic Center at Gonzaga University. You need proper preparation so that you can join and have fun with other runners, walkers, and joggers participating in the event to benefit Second Harvest. Without preparation, you might sustain injuries that could cut the fun short and bring you to a South Hill Spokane urgent care clinic. So, to ensure that you’re ready physically, mentally, and emotionally, follow these tips. Get Enough Sleep Excitement may build on the night before the event, so you may not sleep that much. This is why you need to start getting enough sleep two days prior. Take those days off and rest well. You need as much energy as you can, and lack of sleep can significantly reduce your energy levels.

Participating in Inlander Restaurant Week is a great way to try out new restaurants and different types of food. The money that you spend will also go to help Second Harvest, which helps to bring food to the tables of low-income families.

Providers at a walk in clinic in South Hill Spokane offer these tips on lessening your risk of food poisoning and knowing what to do if you become ill after dining at a restaurant.

Additionally, for individuals who are above the age of 65, a two-dose series of pneumococcal vaccines followed by a pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine six months later is best. Pregnant women, on the other hand, may get their flu shot during any trimester; however, the sooner an expecting mother is vaccinated, the better it is for her baby. While flu shots can be provided by a local hospital or clinic, individuals who would like to avoid the long queues may want to consider visiting a South Hill Spokane urgent care center for their flu shot instead.
