Just The Tips (Fresno County)

I was browsing the Fresno County Department of Public Health website today over my customary morning cup of coffee and found this site. I wanted to pass it along because it’s chalked full of great information and resources that all promote good sexual heath.

WHAT ARE STD’S?

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that can be passed on through vaginal, oral or anal sex, and anyone who is sexually active can get an STD. Sexually transmitted diseases are more common than you may think – and they’re on the rise nationwide and in Fresno County.

WHY GET TESTED?

The Fresno County Department of Public Health encourages anyone who’s sexually active to practice safe sex and to get tested. By getting tested for STDs and practicing safe sex, you can protect yourself from STDs and improve the overall health of everyone in our community.

While STDs can have visible symptoms, it’s common for people to not have – or recognize – any symptoms. The only way to know if you have an STD is to get tested.

Fresno County gem attraction: The Madera Wine Trail

Spring is in the air, and you know what that means: It’s time to talk about wine tasting in the Central Valley! The Madera Wine Trail is a collaboration of eight family wineries in neighboring Madera County, all belonging to the Madera Vintners Association. As such, the wineries are quaint and a short drive on highways 41 and 99. These local operations also give you an opportunity to potentially meet the winemakers themselves (I can attest to that at Papagni’s).

I would consider the Madera Wine Trail the Central Valley’s hidden gem; a gem that should be visited especially if you live in Fresno or Fresno County (since the wineries aren’t very far!).

As of last week, it seems as though all of these wineries are open, at least on weekends. Be sure to check out the Madera Wine Trail map (the featured image of this post) for each winery’s hours, website, and number before visiting them.
