Proper #hydration   is critical to our #health   and wellness. But how do we stay hydrated? What beverages truly meet our hydration needs?

If you’re going to be outdoors on a hot day (perhaps training for Johns Hopkins Ride to Conquer Cancer), try these replenishing homemade #sports  drinks that are economical, low in processed sugars and don’t leave you with a plastic jug when finished:

(photo credit: DailyBurn.com) After a long cycling session, sometimes water just won’t hit the spot. So what do you do? You reach for a sports energy drink to quench your thirst and replenish your body with any lost nutrients. Unfortunately, the dollars and calories can add up after awhile. Worry not! Daily Burn compiled a list of DIY sports drinks that will not only help you recover after a long workout, but are budget friendly! Drink up!

Have you heard these #sunscreen   myths? "You only need sunscreen for the beach." "Dark skin or a base #tan   ‪is a natural #SPF   ‬." "Sunscreens have tons of chemicals in them – they’re worse for you than getting a sunburn."

No one wants wrinkles,   #sunburn   ‪or increased risk of developing skin cancer. But with thousands of types of sunscreen and nearly as many myths about how to stay safe, questions abound.

Luckily, next week sunscreen expert and #Dermatologist   , Benjamin N. Lockshin, MD, FAAD, will answer your questions on sun safety just in time for the official start of summer.

Submit a question by email to sh_info@jhmi.edu or leave a comment below by end of day, Tuesday June 16th for Dr. Lockshin. Feel free to share our post with friends and family!

Last week we hosted our Annual Legacy Luncheon to honor the legacy donors of our Heritage Society and induct new members.
Suburban Hospital President Gene E. Green, M.D. and #orthopedic   surgeon A. Jay Khanna M.D. were our speakers.

Over the years our Heritage Society members have contributed more than $9 million to Suburban Hospital’s mission and the future health of the community. We estimate more than $2 million in future gifts from our current members.

If you would like to demonstrate a commitment to Suburban Hospital and have a lasting impact on the community, consider including Suburban Hospital in your estate plans. For questions and to learn more contact the Foundation office at 301.896.3971.

Time is critical when it comes to diagnosis of a #stroke   ‪and early treatment is associated with better outcomes.

Zurab Nadareishvili, M.D., Ph.D., Medical Director of the NIH Stroke Center at Suburban Hospital, and colleagues from the National Institute of #Neurological   ‪‬Disorders and Stroke and MedStar Washington Hospital Center Stroke Center have published an article on the advantages of using #MRI   ‪scans to diagnose stroke patients.

Going to the hospital is a stressful and confusing experience for most, and patients and families can easily miss important information. That's why last year +Suburban Hospital  introduced My Get Well Kit, a folder of materials designed to help our patients understand, navigate and manage their hospital experience and care. The Kit, which is given to patients when they register, is part guide, part directory and part notebook.

We've heard from patients that the Kit is clear, easy to understand and effective, and this week the communications experts at the +Center for Plain Language agreed -- the Get Well Kit has won the Grand ClearMark Award for the best #communications   in plain language!

Learn more about this prestigious award and see a digital version of My Get Well Kit here:

If you’re planning on spending time outdoors this weekend, be prepared: with humid temps in the 90s, this will be prime #heatstroke  weather. Here are some tips for staying safe in the heat from Suburban Hospital Emergency Department Director Barton Leonard, MD:

1. During conditions of extreme #heat  , try to avoid being out in the sun for long periods of time.

2. Stay well hydrated by drinking water or non-alcoholic beverages regularly to increase your fluid intake. Don't wait until you feel thirsty.

3. If you do not get much #exercise   outdoors, minimize exertion in the heat, especially during the hottest part of the day.

4. Be careful with the elderly, young children and people with heart or lung disease. They are more prone to heat stress and need more assistance keeping cool.

While prevention is best, here’s a guide to symptoms and treatments for the most common heat-related conditions:

Tomorrow is Bike to Work Day, the perfect opportunity for #DC   Metro area #cyclists   to celebrate the smell of fresh air in the morning, and the accomplishment that comes with pushing boundaries.

Whether or not you’re riding to work on Friday, there’s another great opportunity to help make the world a better place while pedaling -- you can also join Team Suburban for September's Ride to Conquer Cancer, a 2-day, 150 mile ride raising money for cancer research and care right here in our community.

It's a great way to challenge yourself to do extraordinary things; all you need is motivation, a bike and a helmet. Or, if riding to work is enough of an adventure, you can join in spirit by supporting our team!
