WRAPPERS: Wrapping presents at the Family Practice Center at Northside Medical Center are employees Kathi Wyllie, left, and Dorothy Andrews, R.N. This year, the center has early presents for pediatric patients. The ones who have an office visit to be immunized any time in December will receive a new toy that was generously donated by either an NMC employee, physician, day care provider or church. Nearly 200 toys were donated. “The Family Practice Center came up with the idea based on low immunization rates in Ohio,” said Lisa Weiss, M.D., director of the center.
