Preparing for holiday travel

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - The holidays are here. So you probably have plans to jump in a car or a plane and visit the ones you love.

That has an impact on your health. We explain how. In this week's Neighborhood Healthwatch.

In Henrico, Lauren Goode is preparing her patients for travel.

Many people will be going out of town or even out of the country.

Lots of people are calling in for medication refills to take with them on their trips.

Just a reminder to be sure you have medication to last the duration of your travel.   A few extra days of medication to have on hand is helpful in case your return home is delayed for weather or other reasons.
