Dear Friends and Patients of Roseman Medical Group,
As we come out of February and move into March, we feel a renewed sense of promise that comes with Springtime. As much as Spring represents new starts, fresh buds on the trees, and suggestions of warmer days, this March holds even more hope of renewal given what we have gone through in the last year. Here in Nevada, on March 12, 2020, the world changed. Here we are a year later. While we have been faced with immeasurable loss, we are reminded of the strength of the human spirit, our tenacity and drive to work together to find new solutions, and our capacity for generosity, kindness, and service. Roseman University has volunteered countless hours to serve as a COVID-19 vaccination pod, and in doing so, has been part of a heroic effort across our community, state, region, and country to vaccinate our populations expediently and equitably. We are enormously proud of our students, faculty and staff that have come together to provide this service to our community. While every state has faced different challenges in deployment, we are making strides every week in protecting more and more of our community members. As of the end of February, Clark County had administered almost 400,000 doses.
We encourage all patients in the current eligibility groups to get vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines will help to decrease the number of deaths and serious disease, reduce the extra burden COVID-19 is having on people already facing disparities, help our community return to normal, and increase the opportunity to improve the health and well-being of all Southern Nevadans.
In this issue, read about how a balanced diet can center a health and wellness plan. Also read about vaccine hesitancy, and how vaccine rollout is being deployed nationally. In the face of COVID-19 lockdowns, we have seen a rise in children’s mental health issues. Read up on the early warning signs and how to find help if you suspect a child in your life needs help. Find out more about Daniel Navarro, DNP, one of our most beloved providers in the clinic. Humble, hard-working, compassionate, Dr. Navarro epitomizes the caliber of care we expect in the clinic.
On March 18, meet Dr. Eric Farbman, one of RMG’s Neurologists and Movement Disorder Specialists. Dr. Farbman will be presenting on the topic of Dementia, a symptom that can be suggestive of a number of different Neurological Diseases. Dr. Farbman is teaming up with Mike Kling, Estate Attorney, who will guide us through how to prepare our families for the onset of Dementia.
Thank you for allowing us the chance to provide your care. We are grateful every day to our patients and friends who trust us to oversee their health and well-being.
Stay healthy and well,
Andra Prum, D.O.
