Get vaccinated and get sweaty!

We are pleased to welcome Sarah E. John, MD, FAAPPediatrics to the ARC Float Physicians team. Dr. John says, “I chose medicine because of my love for science and physiology.” She continues, adding, “That combined with the human aspect of medicine and the ability to help and counsel people through difficult stages in their lives.”

Dr. John says, “I am a strong advocate for shared decision making with families. In pediatrics there is not always a clear-cut decision that is right for everyone, so my job is to focus on highlighting risk/benefits and coming to a plan that works best in any individual situation.”

Get sweaty

Dr. John has several health tips that she likes to share. “The best health advice I can give anyone is to get vaccinated. For kiddos, a really easy way to limit colds is to use hand sanitizer as much as possible.” Her tip for everyone? “Find an activity that you enjoy and that gets you sweaty and to try to make it a priority to fit that into your weekly schedule.”

In her free time, Dr. John practices what she preaches, saying, “I am an avid runner and love to get in a daily jog.”
