For many of us, Halloween and sweets go hand-in-hand. While an occasional indulgence can be part of your healthy diet, we invite you to peruse our Pinterest board of Healthy Halloween Treats for lighter bites that are perfect for a party or to hand out to your neighborhood trick-or-treaters. Have suggestions? Email them to community@onemedical.com and we’ll add them to the board.

Ever wonder if doctors take their own advice? If you’re pregnant or struggling to lose the baby weight, you might be interested in this article from our own Alicea Wu, MD, in which she chronicles her personal approach to successful postpartum weight loss.

This month, One Medical’s Malcolm Thaler, MD, reported on the breaking health news that affects you most, including the outbreaks of fungal meningitis and bacterial meningitis that made headlines in recent weeks.

Here’s what else you might have missed on the One Medical blog in October. Have a safe and happy Halloween from all of us at One Medical Group!
