(PRESS RELEASE) – The holidays are here, and we at the Saint Lucia Medical and Dental Association would like to take this opportunity to wish our fellow citizens a merry Christmas and a bright and prosperous 2020.

A few timely reminders as we prepare to celebrate

 Do not have unprotected sex
 Eat in moderation
 Limit alcohol consumption
 Don’t drink and drive
 Don’t text and drive
 Drive responsibly
 Ensure adequate sleep
 Avoid stressors such as overspending and road rage
 Resolve conflicts amicably
 Avoid smoking and illicit drugs
 Love, Protect, Respect each other
 Do not fail to take medications
 Check in on relatives and friends who may be going through difficult times.

We also urge you fellow St. Lucians to avoid the dumping syndrome whereby elderly patients are left at hospitals despite the fact that they are discharged.

We vow to continue to advocate for quality, equitable, affordable care for all and to move actively to engage the general public and all relevant stakeholders in our unending fight against chronic, non-communicable diseases.

We would also like to take this opportunity to extend well wishes to the outgoing Chief Medical Officer Dr. Merlene Fredrick James, as she ends her tenure of December 31, 2019.

Once again, Happy Holidays!!
