It has been a great month for us at the Professional Lice Center! Treating head lice and educating our patients is only part of what we're going though. We want to educate anyone and everyone about head lice, so that made for some traveling the past few weeks.
First, traveling to Lake City, MN to the Health Expo to educate students on what lice actually is and how they get it. In fact, the CDC estimates 6 to 12 million lice infestations occur each year in the United States among children 3 to 11 years of age https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/lice/head/epi.html. - That's why we're here though! With that said, as summer is quickly approaching, this means day cares will be in full swing again too.
That brings us to our next adventure in Red Wing, MN, at the Southeast Technical College. Here we spoke to daycare providers on education, prevention, and how we treat our patients effectively here at the Professional Lice Center.
May has been busy so far for us and there is much more to come - we're excited to share with you all what's next on our lice agenda!
