While leg ham for breakfast and an extra slice of Christmas pudding make the perfect low-maintenance snacks over the holiday season, Redcliffe Hospital Dietitian Jacinta Sultana says it’s important to know what you can keep so you don’t risk becoming unwell.
New Year, new you? Many of us wake up post-Christmas binge and decide to kick-start a diet and new health regime. But if you aim to make enormous changes quickly, even the best-laid plans can be challenging to execute, and we can easily lose interest.
Christmas is upon us, and as we juggle plenty of social events, we’re also likely consuming more sugar and acidic goods – alcoholic drinks and silly season desserts being the key culprits! As such, it’s important to protect our teeth to avoid any permanent damage amidst the celebrations.
Last summer, the Emergency Department at Redcliffe Hospital treated sixty people for heat-related illnesses. Heat-related illnesses include sunburn and dehydration, but also the more serious medical emergency of heat-stroke. Dr Yan has some tips on how to avoid getting sick from the summer heat and sun.

We sat down with Principal Dentist Dr Tarini Singh to talk all things teeth! 🦷 She looks after our Child and Adolescent Oral Health Services and is passionate about young gums.
"I love working with children, they have a natural curiosity and enthusiasm to learn - it's a privilege to be involved in this part of their development," she said.
"It's wonderful knowing I can be the first person to mould positive dental experiences, we all know most adults hate going to the dentist!

Today we put a spotlight on one of our new doctors! 👋 28-year-old Matthew started studying Veterinary Sciences and shared with us how he ended up as one of RBWH's 2021 interns.
“I was in my final year of studying Veterinary Sciences when I had an allergic reaction to a cat which landed me in hospital. It was here that I witnessed how great our health system is in Australia and how well supported our hospitals are. As soon as I got the idea of studying medicine in my head, my mind was made up," he said.
“I can’t wait to make the transition from student to intern so I can take on some responsibilities and learn from medical industry leaders.
“After my intern year, I’d love to specialise in general surgery or trauma. I like the pragmatic nature of surgery and the fact that you can be active and use your hands.”
