In these unpredictable times, the blog updates on eDoc.net have been a bit tardy. Our excuse is that this site is managed by a coal face team and, to put it mildly, life has been busy. At the start of January, I flew in Mallacoota, a country town in Victoria, Australia, and provided volunteer medical work for a couple of weeks to help the community through the devastating fire season and aftermath. Much of the time was spent in a face mask for protection from the ash and smoke. Fast forward only a couple of months and again most days are again spent again in a face mask, this time treating patients amid the covid-19 pandemic.
It is now time to take stock of 2020 and remember that despite natural disasters – fire and pandemic – life goes on for many and those scientific research-backed preventative health recommendations are still there to ensure you maintain the best possible quantity and quality of life. If you haven’t done an eDoc.net screen for while then now is a ripe opportunity. It’s free, it’s anonymous, and takes only a few minutes. Preventative health measures extend and improve the lives of millions. The first step in knowledge and this is at your fingertips – literally – now.
