October Letter from the Publisher

Dear Readers,

Thank you for picking up the October issue of Healthy Living News. We’re proud to note that this month marks the beginning of our 19th year of publication, an exciting milestone we can attribute to our advertisers, our team of contributing writers, and, most important, our loyal readers. We’re humbled by the continued support we enjoy, and it’s our pledge to keep bringing you the highest quality content in the future.

Parents are encouraged to read this month’s cover story (p. 10) about the many ways in which Catholic education prepares kids, both academically and spiritually, for a successful life ahead. We also encourage you to read the accompanying articles submitted by area Catholic high schools to get a sense of the many programs and possibilities open to your child.

Recently, my editor and I had the distinct pleasure of meeting and talking with Dr. Christopher Cooper, the newly appointed Dean of UT’s College of Medicine. Be sure to read the article on page 19 for his unique vision for the college’s future. This issue also features insights on choosing the right Medicare plan courtesy of our friends at The Ashley Group (p. 18), a profile of the multidisciplinary pediatric trauma team at ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital (p. 4), and a look at the state-of-the-art 3D mammography technology available to Mercy patients (p. 20).

Last but not least, this issue marks the debut of our Senior Living Guide (p. 37), listing all the senior living properties that regularly support HLN through their advertising. If you’re trying to find the right senior community for you or a loved one, we think you’ll find this resource invaluable.

On a personal note, I would like to congratulate my sons Kevin and James and the 2002 St. Francis de Sales Tennis Team, who, along with three coaches and seven other graduates, will be inducted into the St. Francis de Sales Hall of Fame on October 30. I can honestly say this state championship team was the best group of players on one team in the history of Ohio high school tennis—not to mention a wonderful group to be around. Thanks for all the great memories, guys!

Until next month, stay safe, active, and healthy!
