Get out the sparklers, grill, and patriotic colors, Independence Day is almost here! This holiday is a very exciting and special time down in the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry.
“We want all community members to have fun and make the most out of this holiday,” said SouthCoast Health Internal Medicine Physician Dr. Michelle Wilson. “But we also want to stress the importance of keeping in mind safety and health precautions as well. On any big holiday with parties and events, there are always elevated risks to be aware of.”
