We’d like to wish all of our patients, family, and friends a happy 2019 International Women’s Day!
The theme for 2019 is “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change”. This year’s theme inspires us to ask “what can I do to make a difference?”
Thinking big and acting locally is a great start.
We especially love this quote from the International Women’s Day campaign:
Right now is a great and important time in history to do everything possible to help forge a more gender-balanced world. Women have come a long way, yet there’s still more to be achieved. From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence.

Multiple Cases of Measles have been identified in the Vancouver/Portland area, increasing the risk for Lane County!
Area hospitals are restricting access to Labor and Delivery as well as Postpartum to persons over the age of 12 to limit the potential risk of Measles exposure to infants.
In order to decrease exposure to others: Anyone who might show symptoms of measles should call for medical advice before going to an emergency department, doctor’s office, urgent care office, or the Public Health Department.
The symptoms of measles generally appear about seven to 14 days after a person is infected. Measles typically begins with a high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes. Two or three days after symptoms begin, tiny white spots may appear inside the mouth. Three to five days after symptoms begin, a rash breaks out. It usually begins as flat red spots that appear on the face at the hairline and spread downward to the neck, trunk, arms, legs and feet. Small raised bumps may also appear on top of the flat red spots. When the rash appears, a person’s fever may spike to more than 104° Fahrenheit. After a few days, the fever subsides and the rash fades.
