Our monthly Q&A series discusses different holiday season topics. Today, Janet Williams of Rochester Regional Health Immediate Care joins us to discuss health care while traveling.

It’s better to anticipate an emergency and be prepared then be left to deal with an emergency when one occurs. While some emergencies can be prevented and care for by following our preventive tips, others such as food poisoning, or cuts while preparing foods could require a trip to the emergency room or immediate/urgent care facility.
