GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. —  Nearly 80,000 adults and children in the U.S. died as a result of complications from flu.  We wanted to know how this year’s flu season is shaping up so we spoke with Elizabeth Suing, a physician assistant at Spectrum Health and medical lead for Spectrum Health’s telemedicine service, MedNow.   The service can help provide care for non-emergency conditions like flu, cold, pink eye, nausea, and allergies.  It is available 24/7, never costs more than $45 and is covered by most health insurance plans.  Download the MedNow app or call 844.322.7374.  For more information, visit www.mednow.spectrumhealth.org.
