McKINNEY (Aug. 15, 2014) — Allergies are widely blamed on many common ailments: runny nose, itchy eyes, asthma, reactions to foods, rashes, and more. However, overlooking other considerations might be missing the overall picture as to what’s causing these problems.

Join Matt Morgan, M.D., a board-certified, fellowship-trained allergist, on Wednesday, Aug. 27 from noon to 1 p.m. in Classrooms 3-4 as he speaks to the Medical Center of McKinney H2U (Health to You) group. Seating is limited, so please call 972-547-8002 to make your reservation. Lunch will be provided.
