This season, we’re continuing to fall back into some familiar routines and catch up on the important medical decisions that may have been put on the back burner. In this issue, you'll find a care team "who's who," a refresher on the adult vaccine schedule and timely tips to ease the transition to in-person school. You’ll get an inside look at the new Scripps Encinitas Rehabilitation Center, read how to combat sleep issues when the clocks fall back and learn about the chilling condition known as frozen shoulder. We also take an in-depth look at the meaning behind macros and dish up a delicious plant-based seasonal side dish. We understand that reestablishing old routines can feel unfamiliar. Find out some of the ways Scripps is here for you. We're here for good.
