Ozarks Healthcare Family Nurse Practitioner Brooke Fair encourages Seasonal Wellness Care at Mountain Grove

As part of its ongoing commitment to exceptional healthcare services, Ozarks Healthcare previously announced the addition of Family Nurse Practitioner Brooke Fair to its team in Mountain Grove. This strategic addition comes at a crucial time of the year, as nurse practitioners play a pivotal role in providing specialized seasonal wellness care.
As the winter season unfolds, nurse practitioners like Fair are instrumental in ensuring community well-being. They offer personalized care for seasonal illnesses, vaccinations, and proactive health measures tailored to the unique challenges this time of year presents.
"Winter presents special health challenges, and prioritizing wellness care becomes crucial,” Fair said. “Regular check-ups help us proactively address potential issues and ensure everyone can enjoy a healthy season."
The key to preventing common seasonal illnesses such as flu and other respiratory diseases is early detection. 
“Cold weather can constrict blood vessels, elevating blood pressure and potentially leading to heart-related issues,” Fair said. “The dry winter air can be harsh on our respiratory system, triggering or worsening conditions like asthma and bronchitis. From the flu to cold-related illnesses, being proactive about seeing care during winter can reduce worsening of these conditions, which can keep you down for long periods of time.” 
In addition to seeking medical care early when you are not feeling well, preventive measures, such as flu vaccinations, maintaining good hand hygiene, and staying warm to protect against weather-related health concerns can also keep you healthy all season long. 
With a strong foundation in nursing, Fair brings her wealth of experience as a family nurse practitioner, having previously served at Ozarks Healthcare in Winona. In her new role at Ozarks Healthcare in Mountain Grove, Fair is dedicated to addressing and treating a broad spectrum of medical issues, with a heightened focus on seasonal health concerns.
Fair is accepting new patients. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 417-926-6563. The clinic, located at 500 E. 19th St., is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, with walk-in hours available from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
