This summer may have kids heading back outside with greater enthusiasm than ever before. With that energy comes risk, however. West Texas Urgent Care is well aware of this—and the fact that Texas Medical Association data show nearly 85% of head injuries are the result of bicycle crashes—and has already launched a safety event for local cyclists. Visitors were invited to take part in a bicycle safety course that reminded them of the rules of the road, and to get a free helmets if they needed one. At the same time, of course, attendees were introduced to the facility and its helpful, competent staff. Consider what recreational activities are common in your neck of the woods, and how the potential risks might dovetail with your capabilities to provide immediate care.
