Flu shots, health screenings, kids' crafts and Halloween costume parade on tap

WOODS CROSS, Utah, Oct. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- From flu shots to a Halloween costume parade and crafts for kids,

the Woods Cross Family Medicine community open house will have a scary good variety of healthy treats for people of all ages. The new family and internal medicine practice expands access to health care for patients in the region.

The Woods Cross family and internal medicine office opened recently at 2493 South Wild Cat Way, Unit B, in Woods Cross, and the public is invited to a grand opening celebration on Monday, October 15. No appointment is necessary. Providers at the clinic will offer an all-day flu immunization clinic. The practice will also offer health screenings from 5-8 p.m. for adults to have their blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose levels checked. Kids are welcome to participate in craft activities and a Halloween costume parade, with contest judging to take place at 6:30 p.m.

"We're pleased to offer a day-long flu immunization clinic," said J.D. Green, DO, one of the clinic's physicians. "Getting a flu shot is one of the best ways people can take preventative action to try and avoid the flu this season."

Flu shots are generally recommended for children ages six months and older, expectant mothers or those who will be expecting during flu season, people ages 50 and above and anyone who may be immunosuppressed, Dr. Green said.

Dr. Green is joined at the practice by Cynthia Cango-Siao, MD, an Internal Medicine specialist. The providers offer well-baby visits, pediatrics, and school physicals, in addition to day-to-day care patients may need. The providers are accepting new patients and the practice may be reached at 801-693-3020 to schedule an appointment.
