Health Infographics

Infographics help convey complex health information to the public through easy to understand visuals.

Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes starts when your body is not able to make and use all the insulin it needs for pregnancy. Without enough insulin, glucose cannot leave the blood and be changed to energy. Glucose builds up in the blood to high levels. This is called hyperglycemia.

sun, uv rays

Temperatures are up, the sun is out and we are all ready to begin enjoying our favorite outdoor activities for summer. During these long days, the average person will spend more time outside exposing themselves to ultraviolet (UV) rays. These rays damage the structure of our skin cells and cause damage to the connective tissues increasing your risk of cancer. With that it in mind, it is important to understand the risks and protective measures to take while enjoying the summer.


Give Blood, Give Life

World Blood Donor Day asks “What can you do?”  “Give Blood. Give Now. Give Often.”

LVMC supports and promotes the importance of World Blood Donor Day, raising awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products. LVMC also thanks all donors for their life-saving gifts of blood.

Depression and Addiction

Statistics confirm that there’s a definite connection between mental illness and the use of addictive substances. Effective prevention and treatment services exist for these conditions, and improving one’s health and wellness is a key goal.

Veterans and Addiction

The U.S. has seen a steep increase in the problem of substance abuse and alcoholism not only by civilians but by veterans and active duty military as well.


Alcohol Poisoning

Your liver can process one serving of alcohol per hour. That means if you’re drinking, your liver can only handle within one hour the equivalent of 12 ounces of beer or 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of distilled alcohol, like whiskey, tequila, gin, rum, or vodka.
