SouthCoast Health physician: Choose water over sugary drinks

Wednesday, June 9th, 2021

southcoast health physicians savannah

SouthCoast Health’s Dr. Leland R. Dampier, III

Georgia is one of the top five states with the highest sugar consumption, with about one in three Georgian adults drinking soda a day.

“About half of the United States adult population drinks a soda a day,” SouthCoast Health Family Physician Leland Dampier, MD said.

“…But I’m sure if that more adults knew what they were doing to their bodies, they would work hard to never drink soda again.”

Learn about why you should not drink soda & the benefits of water here.

If you have any more questions about the negatives of soda or the benefits of water, click here to schedule an appointment with any of SouthCoast Health’s general physicians.

(Savannah pediatricians) Dr. Yolanda Rivera-Caudill on how to help prevent drownings this summer

Tuesday, June 8th, 2021

Savannah pediatricians wilmington Island

Drowning prevention tips from The Tiny Beet – a general pediatric direct primary practice in Savannah

Did you know that 88% of child drownings occur with at least one adult present?
Pool season is here. Savannah pediatrician Dr. Yolanda Rivera-Caudill @ The Tiny Beet – a general pediatric direct primary practice in Savannah –  is on a mission to spread awareness on swimming safety.

Over the next few days,  Dr. Caudill will post a series of recommendations to push for a zero drowning summer on the Doctor Beet Facebook page here and on Instagram here.

Tiny Beet Tips Series: Tip No. 1
Assign a water watcher.
Even if there is a lifeguard present, the water watcher is a designated person who’s role is to observe the children’s activity while in or around the pool. Together we can have a safer swimming summer.

Free Juneteenth 2021 celebrations @ Telfair Museums, Savannah

Monday, June 7th, 2021

free juneteenth savannah events telfair jepson summer kids 2021

Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center in Savannah free to locals June 12-13; free libation ceremony & virtual Juneteenth lecture

Telfair Museums will mark Juneteenth 2021 with free admission to the Jepson Center, a free libation ceremony, and a free virtual lecture.

From 10AM-5PM Saturday and Sunday, June 12 and 13, Savannah and Chatham County residents will receive free admission to the Jepson Center in partnership with the City of Savannah.

The free weekend features a libation ceremony at noon Sat. June 12 on the front steps of the museum led by local historians Vaughnette Goode-Walker and Jamal Toure.

Activity kits focusing on the Black experience and themes related to current exhibitions, including works by Savannah artist Sauda Mitchell, also will be distributed.

Juneteenth celebrates the beginning of the emancipation of enslaved Americans on June 19, 1865, by order of Union General Gordon Granger in Texas.

At 6PM Tues. June 15, Telfair will host its annual Juneteenth lecture with a virtual appearance by historian and author Anthony Cohen, whose book “Patrick & Me” chronicles his journey as a fourth-generation descendant of an enslaved man who escaped to freedom on the Underground Railroad. Drawing from an 1856 interview with his forbearer, Cohen carefully reconstructs the amazing life story of Patrick Sneed—a slave of African, Jewish, Irish, and Cherokee heritage—who fled from bondage in Savannah and later went on to fight in the Civil War. You can register for the free Zoom lecture at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_rMobXJFBRsWVjCwRljswxw.

Telfair recently expanded its regular days and hours as it continues to pare back limitations enforced during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic last year. All three of Telfair’s sites—the Jepson Center, the Telfair Academy, and the Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters—now are open from 10AM-5PM on Tuesdays, in addition to Thursdays through Mondays. The museum remains closed on Wednesdays.
