Weekend Doctor: RSV

By Brittany Grider, MD
Pediatric Hospitalist of Northwest Ohio

It’s always a joyful moment when a new baby is born. Everyone in the family wants to come meet the new addition. A few days later, this precious little baby is struggling to breathe and needs to be in the ICU with RSV bronchiolitis. 

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is generally a virus present in the winter, usually at its worst in January and February each year. This year, RSV and influenza were conspicuously absent in the winter months. There are likely multiple reasons for this, but the bottom line is that RSV is here now. 

Annual United Way fundraising campaign

By Sean Beck
Executive Director, United Way of Hardin County

I know this is a busy season for many, which is also true for the United Way. We are well into our annual fundraising campaign and are in a season of transition. The most significant change for us this year is the addition of me! I am writing to you as the new Executive Director of the United Way of Hardin County. Coming into the role mid-campaign hasn’t been easy, but it truly has been an incredible experience.

Did you know that in 2021, the United Way of Hardin County served OVER SIX THOUSAND PEOPLE? That’s an incredible impact. The United Way helped to fund programs such as Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which provides books to kids for FREE; Safe Haven, which provides a safe space for people who have had the misfortune of experiencing domestic violence; youth development programs such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Girl Scouts, and the Boy Scouts; to Love, INC which provides emergency assistance to those in dire need. With the number of people whom the United Way has helped, I am 100% certain you know someone who has been positively impacted by the excellent work that the United Way does.
