It has been a great blessing to the Mount Vernon Missionary Baptist Church. It has served our community by helping us recognize the importance of taking healthy steps for healthy living. It has served our church by informing African American men and women of vitally important and diverse matters on health. It has been instrumental in our church establishing a health ministry and focusing on a specific health issue monthly. It has influenced our members to begin exercising and eating healthy. Finally, it has inspired me to take my health serious enough to make life-changing decisions, get regular check ups and be open, honest and detailed with my personal physician. Psychology books help us to sustain our emotional health. A multitude of books help us to expand our intellectual health. The Bible helps us to maintain our spiritual health.

The hard-working women and men of Jackson County would like to congratulate Our Health Matters on its 12th Anniversary. The magazine is of personal value to us in that it introduces experienced health care professionals and facilities, and offer strategies to help improve our day-to-day lives.

Congratulations to Our Health Matters on 12 years of providing the Greater Kansas City community with essential health information. Ruth Ramsey and her team have worked tirelessly to produce a professional publication, which tracks treatment trends, supports lifestyle changes, and spotlights healthcare career options. From engaging covers to insightful articles to hard-won advertising, every page of the magazine reflects Ruth’s meticulous and caring nature. As part of my former responsibility for Blue KC’s Community Wellness Program, had the pleasure to work with Ruth on several important info-ads, including H1N1 flu vaccination awareness, maternal health promotion, and low-cost dental services availability. As an advertiser, I realize the hard work in getting advertising budgets approved to sponsor a portion of the publication costs. Despite the many challenges over the years, Ruth amazingly prevailed and thrived — a testimony to her fortitude and resilience and the publication’s value and significance. What is truly miraculous is that Ruth launched Our Health Matters in 2005 and sustained the magazine throughout the country’s economic downturn. Wishing Ruth and her talented staff continued success in engaging and informing the community on important health topics with each issue.
