November Update from Puri Pediatrics

Fall is already here. And before you know, so will be Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Along with all the excitement we have to remember that their health and well-being are very important.

School age children from preschoolers to college students need vaccines. We are here to help parents make sure all kids and young adults are up-to-date on recommended vaccines and protected from serious diseases. We have started giving the flu vaccine. Please call our office to make appointments. Remember that Autumn is a great time for physicals and elective appointments.

November Holidays
Guru Nanak Gurpurab | November 4th
Guru Nanak Gurpurab also known as Guru Nanak’s Prakash Utsav, celebrates the birth of the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak. This is one of the most sacred festivals in Sikhism. Apart from Sikhs, the Nanakpanthi Hindus and other followers of Guru Nanak’s philosophy also celebrate this festival. The festivities in the Sikh religion revolve around the anniversaries of the 10 Sikh Gurus. These Gurus were responsible for shaping the beliefs of the Sikhs. Their birthdays, known as Gurpurab (or Gurpurb), are occasions for celebration and prayer among the Sikhs. Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, was born on 15 April 1469 in Rai-Bhoi-di Talwandi in the present Shekhupura District of Pakistan, now Nankana Sahib. His birth is celebrated on Kartik Poornima, i. e. , the day of the full moon in the month of Kartik. In the Gregorian Calendar, the celebration usually falls in the month of November, but its date varies from year to year, based on the traditional dates of the Indian calendar.
Veterans Day | November 11th
Veterans Day is an official United States holiday which honors people who have served in armed service also known as veterans. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11. It coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the end of World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect). Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U. S. military veterans, while Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving.

Thanksgiving Day | November 23rd
Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada. Thanksgiving has its historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, and has long been celebrated in a secular manner as well.

Prayers of thanks and special thanksgiving ceremonies are common among almost all religions after harvests and at other times. In the United States, the modern Thanksgiving holiday tradition is commonly, but not universally, traced to a poorly documented 1621 celebration at Plymouth in present-day Massachusetts. The 1621 Plymouth feast and thanksgiving was prompted by a good harvest. Pilgrims and Puritans who began emigrating from England in the 1620s and 1630s carried the tradition of Days of Fasting and Days of Thanksgiving with them to New England.

As President of the United States, George Washington proclaimed the first nation-wide thanksgiving celebration in America marking November 26, 1789, “as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favours of Almighty God”.

India’s Independence Day Celebrated in Fremont

“Members of the Bay Area's thriving Indo-American community didn't let the 8,000-mile distance from the motherland stop them Sunday from celebrating India's birthday. Instead, they brought India's 69th Independence Day party to Fremont, for a parade and festival attended by about 3,500 people,” reported Tracey Kaplan for the East Bay Times.

The Festival of Globe, formerly known as the Festival of India, took place in Fremont to celebrate India’s independence. The 10-day festival included a film festival, fashion show, dance competition, health fair and other events. In Fremont, about 1 in 5 residents is Indo-American.

Take steps to prevent the flu:
  • The flu season is here! The best way to protect against flu is to get the vaccine every flu season. Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine. The flu vaccine provides protection that lasts throughout the flu season. Get vaccinated now so that you will be protected all season long!
    Wash your hands.
  • Keeping hands clean is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of infection and illness. Keeping hands clean prevents illness at home, at school, and at work. It’s best to wash your hands with soap and clean running water for 20 seconds. If that’s not possible, use alcohol-based hand rubs.
  • Develop, maintain, and keep good sleep habits.
  • Don’t look a fright this Halloween! Sufficient sleep is not a luxury—it is a necessity—and should be thought of as a "vital sign" of good health. Sufficient sleep is being recognized as an important aspect to help prevent some chronic diseases, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart conditions, obesity, and depression.
  • Eat fruits and vegetables.
    Healthy diets rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. Fruits and vegetables also provide essential vitamins and minerals, fiber, and other substances that are important for good health. Most fruits and vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories and are filling. Fruits and vegetables are a great healthy snack to serve for Halloween parties.
  • Be prepared for cold weather.
    Although winter comes as no surprise, many of us are not ready for its arrival. Be prepared this Halloween and make sure to dress for the weather. If you are prepared for the hazards of winter, you will be more likely to stay safe and healthy when temperatures start to fall.

Taking Care of Your Children Until Age 26
Due to the passage of new health care bill, we will be happy now to take care of young adults till 26 years of age, while they are covered under their parents’ plan.

Welcome to Puri Pediatrics...

We are committed to dedication and excellence in providing health care for children. Pediatrics is the specialty of medicine concerned with the medical care of infants, children and teenagers (birth to 21 years of age.) Pediatrics includes the care of sick, as well as preventive health care of children. Your child should be checked regularly to see if he/she is growing well and to receive immunizations against contagious diseases. Drs. Veena and Hari Puri are board certified in Pediatrics, and members of American Academy of Pediatrics. Drs. Hari and Veena are proud to take care of thousands of families in the Southeast Bay area (Fremont, Newark, Union City, and Hayward) since 1982.

Taking care of your children is our top priority. We want you to feel comfortable knowing that your child will receive the highest standard of care. We believe a family’s relationship with their pediatrician should be based on mutual trust and open communication. We expect you to bring us any questions and concerns you have about your child’s health. We will listen to you carefully and then do everything to answer your questions and explain anything you do not understand. We will make every effort to accommodate your wishes and special requests whenever possible.

We take pride in our office being a multi-cultural group, and having a diverse background. Our doctors grew up in India and attended medical school there before coming here. They have all been raising their children in the U.S.A. and this is their home now and we understand the challenges of raising children with dual cultures. They also understand the importance to maintain the value system and heritage from their country of origin. Issues like speaking two languages, ethnic foods, travels back and forth from different countries like India, China, and the Philippines, and also the importance of respect for parents, grandparents, and relatives that visit from other countries and come and stay for different extended times.

Puri Pediatrics has an exceptional group of doctors and support staff. The newly renovated office welcomes our young patients with a calming a fish tank and a lively mural painting. We take pride in being a multicultural group with multiple languages fluencies. English, Spanish, Tagalog, Persian/Farsi, Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Tamil, and Telegu are all spoken here. Our staff is all well trained and cross-trained to work in every part of the office. They are always ready to help, and all of them are working parents and understand the feelings and needs of the working parents well.
