“Heading out for a bike ride? First, always wear a helmet. And, take steps to safely share the road with cars. Know your route. Use lights, signal your turns, and avoid busy streets. Go with the flow of traffic, and obey traffic rules. Watch for people opening doors of parked cars.”

Denise Burham, PA-C
Wentworth-Douglass Center for Orthopedics & Joint Replacement, (603) 609-6260


“Ticks are here! Symptoms for tick-related illnesses are highly variable – everything from rash, joint swelling, headaches, fever and numbness. If you start experiencing unexplained symptoms, always consider a possible tick exposure even if you are not aware of a bite. And always take precautions when you are outside – cover your skin and use a bug repellent with DEET.”

Lukas Kolm, MD, MPH, FACEP
Seacoast Emergency Physicians and Chair of Wentworth-Douglass Hospital Emergency Medicine

"While trampolines are a good source of fun and exercise during the summer months, they are also potentially dangerous. Some basic safety rules include: children 5 and under should not play on a trampoline; always have adult supervision; and only one child at a time should be allowed to jump on the trampoline."

"The smell of fresh cut grass is a surefire sign that summer is here! But, if this gives you a runny nose and itchy, watery eyes, you may have seasonal allergies. Get those treated! Don’t let seasonal allergies get in the way of your summer fun.”

 John M. O’Day, MD, FACS
Wentworth Health Partners Head & Neck Specialty Group of NH, (603) 692-4500
