For more than a decade Our Health Matters™ has been a steady source of valuable health news and information, unlike any other in the region. And, that’s just the way we intended! Our editorial focus — solely on health and wellness — sets us apart from crowded messages hidden in lifestyle publication media that can be lost on people who need clearly defined information and resources to take action.
Through our printed pages and digital media, we’ve led thousands of conversations about health concerns that impact life expectancy and pose threats to the mind, body and spirit. And, we’ve kept uppermost in the minds of our readers that early detection is essential to understanding their health status.
In this issue, we educate readers about the importance of health screenings to detect, treat and manage chronic and infectious diseases. We learn about an injectable drug that can help with weight loss and explore the growing trend of plant-based diets.
As we celebrate 15 years, we also celebrate our readers and advertisers who know increasing health literacy is necessary to ensure that living healthy is more than an afterthought.
With the beginning of a new year, we hope you will take this opportunity — and these tips to create a New You that lasts all year and beyond. On behalf of the entire Our Health Matters team… Here’s to your health in 2020!
