I hope this letter finds you well!
It’s no newsflash: the COVID health crisis has affected every aspect of our lives for well over a year. At this writing, things appear to be approaching “normal” … I’m hopeful that my letter in our fall issue will bring me an opportunity to talk about how much further we’ve come.
One significant thing the pandemic has overshadowed is news of many advancements in medicine and treatment of other serious diseases. In this issue is an article announcing a blood test that can detect over 50 types of cancer and a look at breakthroughs in the treatment of Hepatitis C, Migraine, Multiple Sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease, among others – all great news!
Of course, My City publications are very popular because of their local focus. We value the contributions to our Wellness content from many local healthcare experts, physicians, organizations and facilities. This month’s articles feature input from leading practitioners in the fields of cancer treatment, podiatry, general surgery and pediatric disease. In addition, the Genesee County Health Department offers an update on the status of HIV in the county and the many ways they educate and assist the local population.
In the human interest spotlight is a story brought to us by a mother who wanted to share an experience with you; read about her daughter’s fight with a rare cancer and how their journey through it together resulted in healing for both.
Finally, nominations are open on August 1 for the 2021 Wellness Awards – visit MyCityMag.com/Wellness-Awards.
Enjoy this issue of Wellness, thanks for reading … and be well!
