McKenzie Healthy Living Event on June 16 to Focus on Summer Safety and First Aid

While summer is full of sunshine, adventure and fun, it can also be a season of increased accidents, sunburns and hidden dangers. To make summer safer for everyone, a team of community paramedics will participate in the next McKenzie Health System (MHS) “Healthy Living Together” virtual series on Summer Safety and First Aid. The event will be held on Wednesday, June 16 from noon to 1 p.m.

The free webinar is live, with the chance to watch via Zoom or listen to via phone, and it will also be recorded and shared on the McKenzie YouTube channel and Facebook page after the event. Participants will have the opportunity to type interactive questions and comments for the Q&A discussion.

“We are lucky to have some wonderful, skilled paramedics who will provide simple and effective tips for having a safer, healthier summer,” said Louise Blasius, LMSW, LPC, Director of Human Services at McKenzie Health System and Healthy Living Together Chair. “Whether you are looking for general tips or have questions about specific first aid techniques, our pros are here to help!”
