Several Major League Baseball players have had season ending elbow surgeries and we are not yet to the 2014 All-Star Game. Are you wondering what can be done at the youth level to prevent career altering injuries? Our experienced team of sports medicine providers takes professional and collegiate level care and services to high school, middle school and recreational athletes in our community. http://bit.ly/1ro6yrp

In support of the Better Together Campaign, Spectrum Health is recognized as one of 12 hospitals supporting the initiative of eliminating restrictive visiting hour policies. "These 12 hospitals understand how important it is to partner with patients' families instead of treating them as outsiders who are interfering in their loved one's care," said Beverley Johnson, IPFCC President and CEO.http://bit.ly/1rbK8tg

Spectrum Health defines a job shadow as a “one day, less than 8 hours, unpaid career exploration opportunity where a student is allowed to observe a professional and ask questions about their career.” These opportunities are open to students 14 years and older, community members, and even employees of Spectrum Health. http://bit.ly/1vzuzvf

Smokeless tobacco does not mean harmless. Did you know: chewing tobacco and snuff contain 28 cancer-causing agents called carcinogens. Smokeless tobacco users have an increased risk of developing cancer of the mouth and oral cavity, stomach, esophagus, and the pancreas. http://bit.ly/1rM8xGi #quitsmoking

Chances are if you suffer from arthritis, achy joints, or chronic pain your doctor has encouraged you to move more. While it seems like moving will only make things worse, the opposite is generally true. http://bit.ly/1rjJz0A

For those of us with MS and other chronic conditions exacerbated by heat and humidity, late summer can bring about more than just wishing for a day off to hit the beach. How can you manage this annual occurrence? http://bit.ly/1sHtJyF

Summer weather is finally here and it is time to replace those snow boots with toe bearing sandals. Flip flops are a better fashion accessory than a supportive shoe. The basic flip flop offers no support to the inner arch, no foot control when the heel strikes the ground and no shock absorption. http://bit.ly/1vzxMuL
