February 2024 Letter From PublisherJan 31, 2024 11:00AM ● By Holly Baker
In February, we just LOVE to talk about Heart-Healthy Living. This edition includes plenty of heart-centric content, from physical health to emotional wellness.
While we are sharing plenty of insight into keeping our hearts happily beating, it is also important to understand the role that other people have in our heart’s health. In “How Relationships Shape Our Health”, on page 14, learn about the psychosocial stages of our lives, and how our relationships with family and friends throughout life have such a huge impact on our well-being.
Excitingly, this month our Artist Spotlight interview is with superstar actor and singer Mandy Patinkin, who will be performing here at the Fox Tucson Theatre on February 18. Perhaps best known for his roles in The Princess Bride, Chicago Hope, Criminal Minds and Homeland, among many other hits—learn about his many other talents and passions on page 26.
We also explore how dental health is linked to heart health (page 15), the magic of hugs (page 29), lowering our battery footprint (page 24), plant-based milks (page 22) and more. As a bonus, for some benefits of the lovely citrus fruits adorning this month’s cover, see the Health Brief on page 10.
