Hi all, Harris Healthcare is here to assist other's to live a healthy and abundant life
So I have been in health care over 30 years and have seen a lot come and go. I have seen things such hot topics of AIDS, Ebola Virus and Bird Flu take root and devastate the public and healthcare workers due to not knowing enough about these issues. Well, I would like to help debunk and give enough knowledge over those things that can cause public alarm. I have a master's degree in nursing, but still I do not profess to be a doctor and do not want to confuse or mislead anyone in thinking that they should not be seen by a health professional when warranted. If you need medical attention please make an appointment on this site page under "make an appointment", or with your primary care provider, otherwise take in a few thoughts and pearls on different subject matters.
