The summer health essential… for your smartphone

By Jeff Arnold, CEO and Chairman

With the weather heating up and schools getting out for the summer, I know many of us are looking forward to spending some quality time with friends and family. But the longer days and warmer temperatures bring with them a unique set of potential health risks – ranging from sunburn to dehydration, eye injuries and even food poisoning. And, in many cases, we’re not near our family doctor when these things occur. That’s why I hope you’ll take a moment and download AskMD – which I’m proud to say just won Best Medical App for the second year in a row. It’s free, works on iPhones and Android devices, and can help you keep track of your and your family’s health while you’re on the go. Plus, if you’re faced with an issue, AskMD will locate doctors nearby that accept your insurance. So, while it’s important that we remember to wear sunscreen, AskMD might just be your next best summer essential.
