The holidays are often a time of joy and spending time with loved ones, but often people experience a high amount of stress and other pressures. While families come together for gatherings and holiday parties, traveling tends to be at the highest. Unfortunately, death rates also spike during the holidays. Heightened alcohol consumption, increased accidents, and alcohol related crashes are all a factors that we should pay attention to. Listen to Dr. John Mendelson & CEO of Ria Health, Tom Nix, as they offer helpful tips that can help you and your family stay a little safer.
