October is “Take Your Loved One to The Doctor” (TYLOD) month, and Live Healthy Miami Gardens is excited to join forces with the City of Miami Gardens and Health Foundation of South Florida to encourage residents of Miami Gardens to take themselves and their loved ones to the doctor all year. In the past two years, Live Healthy Miami Gardens and its partners have brought awareness of the importance of regular health care check-ups.
“Effective care for loved ones requires a holistic approach to their general well-being. That includes taking them to the doctor for annual check-ups and taking advantage of preventive care to avoid serious health conditions,” said Mayor Oliver Gilbert, City of Miami Gardens.
