Telehealth

Medical services are always going to be at high demand, no matter the area or the circumstances. One way to ensure that people have faster access to medical services, especially in times of crisis, is by using the telehealth, which can be defined as the remote access of health care services by means of telecommunications technology.

One of the health care services provided is the telemedicine or the fact of being able to have a virtual check with your doctor.

Wary of child abuse- it can happen right under your nose.

Any intentional harm or mistreatment to a child under 18 years old is considered child abuse. Child abuse takes many forms, which often occur at the same time.

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Medical abuse
  • Neglect

It is sad that in many cases, child abuse is done by someone the child knows and trusts — often a parent or other relative. If you suspect child abuse, report the abuse to the proper authorities.
