August 2016 Newsletter People’s Health Clinic. Health shouldn’t take a back seat with the change of seasons and schedules. People’s Health Clinic needs your help in passing on some of our timely information to help keep everyone out of the doctors office as much as possible.

National Immunization Awareness Month
With back to school upon us, it’s a good time to make sure the whole family is up to date on all recommended vaccinations.
According to the Mayo Clinic, immunization requirements vary by state, and get regularly updated or changed. If you’re new to Utah, or not quite sure of the requirements, check with the school district or child care facility, your child’s doctor, or the state health department.

August is also National Children’s Eye & Health Safety Month
Did you know an estimated 80 percent of classroom education is taught visually?

People’s Health Clinic is able to provide eye exams and glasses to the uninsured children of Summit and Wasatch Counties thanks to a grant from Vail’s EpicPromise program.

According to the nonprofit Friends for Sight, common signs of vision troubles in children include:
  • frequently rubbing eyes
  • squinting
  • tilting or turning head to look at objects
  • wandering eyes
  • squeezing eyes.
If your child displays any of these symptoms, please schedule an appointment to have their eyes checked.

New Development Director
Please welcome People’s Health Clinic’s new Development Director: Shelley Marshall.
August 2016 Newsletter People's Health Clinic

Shelley hails from North Carolina where she received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. She also taught ice skating throughout college, so it’s no wonder that in 1998, she moved to Salt Lake City, where she could better combine her two loves – nursing and skating.

Shelley worked in the Pediatric Intensive Care unit at Primary Children’s Medical Center and taught skating at the Olympic venue, Salt Lake City Sports Complex. She is chair and co-founder of Sustain Utah, a collaboration with 100 not-for-profit eco groups.
Shelley resides in Park City with her two adorable children, and is excited to merge her passion for health, wellness and community activism through People’s Health Clinic.
