(Aventura – June, 2010) Hurricane season is officially underway, and experts predict an active season, with approximately 15 named storms, including eight hurricanes. While patterns may change, the staff at Aventura Hospital and Medical Center believe it is important to always be prepared, especially when others depend upon you for support.
The “Caring for the Caregivers” seminar series was established in 2009 to provide useful resources and information for adults serving as care givers for loved ones. In preparation for hurricane season, Aventura Hospital will host a special “Caring for the Caregivers” seminar about “How to Plan for a Hurricane” on Thursday, June 25th from 12:00pm to 1:00pm at 21110 Biscayne Boulevard, Suite 101, Aventura, FL.
Julissa Moreira, CHSP, Disaster/Emergency Preparedness, will share her expertise to help you develop a solid plan to protect you and your loved ones before, during, and after a hurricane strikes. Heather Katz, RD, LD/N, CDE, Operations and Clinical Nutrition Manager, will then present useful ways to “Keep Food Safe During a Hurricane”.
