Hot and hazy summer days are upon us, so it was excellent timing for a team from White Plains Hospital, led by Dr. Anita Mannancheril, to be on hand at the North Castle Public Library recently to discuss and answer questions about sun safety, dehydration, tick removal and more.
Pertinent literature was distributed to everyone who stopped by. “Seniors are especially vulnerable to dehydration,” said Dr. Mannancheril. “Take special care to check on elderly individuals or those with mental health conditions who may not be able to as easily articulate their discomfort.”
The group is planning more public outreach to help promote the new White Plains Hospital Medical and Wellness Center, an urgent and primary health care facility in the heart of Armonk at 99 Business Park Drive. For more information, please visit wphospital.org/armonk. – Grace Bennett
