Announcing Dr Lu Lu Waterhouse

Dr. Waterhouse is looking forward to meeting all of the wonderful patients and families as the newest pediatrician at Willow Creek! She was chief resident this year at Primary Children's Medical Center. We are lucky to have her here full time.  Lu Lu was born in China and moved to Pittsburgh, PA with her family when she was 5 years old. She went to Princeton University for undergrad where she met her husband, Tyler. She stayed in the east coast for medical school, going to the University of Connecticut. Lu Lu and Tyler decided to head west to the mountains and fell in love with Salt Lake City where Dr. Waterhouse just completed her pediatrics residency at the University of Utah/Primary Children's. They welcomed their son, Bode, in September 2012 and are loving the adventures of parenthood! In her free time, Lu Lu enjoys hiking with Tyler, Bode, and Fenway (their Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever who was their first "son"), skiing, baking, and traveling. Dr. Waterhouse loves pediatrics because kids have such fun and amazing personalities and she cherishes the relationships she's able to form with them and their families as their pediatrician."
We are so excited that Dr. Lu Lu Waterhouse is part of our Willow Creek Family and we hope you get to meet her soon!

Is your Laundry Room Childproof

Is your Laundry Room Childproof? Anything within your child's reach can end up in his or her hands and mouth. Don't forget to check for safety hazards in your laundry room.
 Here are some great safety tips:
  • Keep laundry detergent and other cleaning products in their original packaging
  • Call Poison Control for Help 800-222-1222
  • Store all cleaning products in locked cabinets or containers, out of sign and reach of children
  • Install safety latches that lock when you close the door on child-accessible cabinets.
  • Never let your children touch single-use laundry packets. The packets dissolve  quickly when in contact with water, wet hands or saliva
  • Always follow the instructions on the product label
  • Use childproof locks on front-loading washers and dryers
  • Make sure laundry chute doors are childproof
  • Keep irons and iron cords out of reach of children
