Yes there are preventative steps you can take to combat seasonal allergies this Spring in Savannah, according to SouthCoast Health allergy experts.

“Just like with many other medical conditions, there are things you can do to prevent issues and complications from season allergies,” SouthCoast Health Allergist Dr. Wasil Khan said. “Many patients think they should wait until their symptoms start to come see me, but it’s actually best to come in before the allergy season starts if you know you typically experience them during the spring months.”

(SouthCoast Health Savannah) Why you should become an organ donor

Thursday, February 1st, 2024

SouthCoast Health Savannah organ donation

More than 110,000 men, women, and children are on the national transplant waiting list. Even worse, every ten minutes someone new is added.

Each year, the difference between the number of people waiting for organs versus the number of people willing to donate grows wider year after year. While 95% of US adults support organ donation, only about 54% are actually signed up to be donors. That means about 20 people die each day waiting for a transplant.

SouthCoast Health professionals in Savannah can answer all of your medical questions, and, since SouthCoast has a wide range of medical professionals and departments, they can handle most discussions about organ donation, no matter what body part your questions cover.

Learn more about organ donation and why you should become an organ donor here.
