Did you know that 9 out of 10 car seats are used incorrectly? Whether you are expecting your first baby or have a car full of kids, selecting and properly using a child safety seat can be a challenge.
The type of seat your child needs depends on multiple factors, including your child’s age, height, weight, and developmental needs. You may also need to take into consideration the type of vehicle you will be transporting your child in, and the safety needs of other passengers.
Let St. Luke’s help take the stress out of correctly installing a safety seat for your treasured cargo. We offer monthly car seat check-up events. At these events, a St. Luke's certified child passenger safety technician will evaluate your car seat for proper installation, use, and recall status, and answer any questions you may have regarding your child’s safety in the car.
In this one-hour, online class, you’ll learn the basics of managing diabetes during pregnancy, including why it’s important to manage sugars, recommended eating patterns to help control blood sugars and goals for blood sugar management.
The class is taught by Jennifer Lofy, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator.
Note: While the online class is a great fit for most people, one-on-one visits with a diabetes educator are also available for some individuals. Those with specific needs and/or obstacles to taking the online class — including very high blood sugar levels, preexisting health conditions, disabilities and/or if English isn’t their primary language — can ask a health care provider for a referral to the diabetes educator team. These individual classes are offered via telehealth and in person, depending on your needs and location.
The health of our patients, employees and community is tied to the health of our environment.
St. Luke’s mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve. This compels us to look at how climate is impacting health outcomes and our organization’s environmental impacts that contribute to the climate conversation.
This lecture series serves to deepen the conversation specific to Idaho on heat, smoke, human health and how St. Luke’s works within our communities.
