In this lecture, Calvin Brown, MD, Medical Director of the Urgent Care Center, will discuss the flu and the importance of getting your flu shot. In the second half of his lecture, Dr. Brown will provide tips on how to reduce the risk of falls and fall-related injuries as the weather gets colder and icy this winter.
