Five on Friday: Migration and the Climate Crisis


This month, we celebrate National Immunization Awareness Month. MCN’s work at the Ventanilla de Salud in Austin includes weekly health fairs, many of which feature free vaccinations for Austin’s large Latino community. Make sure to watch for updates by following Ventanilla de Salud, Austin on Facebook and Twitter. For clinicians outside of the Austin area: the CDC’s campaign for the month includes “How I Recommend…” videos on how individual physicians talk with patients about various vaccines with their patients, along with many other resources -- check them out, and share your own tips and tricks with fellow clinicians with us on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter. On to our five recommendations from MCN staff for the week, including our Weekly Win to go into the weekend on a lighter note.
