BY REBECCA PALMER,
Welcome to the first edition of Davis Wellness, a monthly magazine by Utah Media Publishing.
Being healthy is vital to a good quality of life, and our readers are hungry for information about how to
stay healthy throughout their lives.
The new year is a great time to think about how you can be healthier, whether you compete in Iron Man competitions or simply want to stay in shape. We want to help our readers learn about the lifestyle changes they can make that will help them live longer, healthier lives.
This magazine will focus on important components of health such as fitness and healthy diets. It will also provide information about general health, updates on medical treatments and in-depth information about the health problems that are all too common in our community.
Like our sister publications Davis Clipper and Utah Islander, we pledge to give you the kind of local coverage in Davis Wellness that you won’t find from any other source.
To meet that objective, we will rely on local health experts. Every month, we will publish articles they write to give you the most recent and most accurate information available.
In this issue, we feature optometrists, a massage therapist, a plastic surgeon who specializes in facial reconstruction and a specialist on senior living.
In future publications, we plan to feature chiropractors, hearing specialists, dentists personal trainers and more.
We will also assign the best reporters on the Utah Media Publishing team to covering stories about health and wellness that can improve your life
This month, look for information about a new exercise program in local elementary schools, an inspiring story about one woman’s struggle to overcome the “fat” label and information about the virulence of this year’s strain of the flu.
Beyond top quality content, we plan to feature advertising from local healthcare providers and fitness centers, among others.
Look to this magazine to find the best professionals close to you
Also in this edition, we are introducing a Get Moving Davis fitness program in cooperation with Skills Fitness of Bountiful. We encourage everyone in our community to exercise according to guidelines recommended by medical professionals, and we’ll provide ideas and inspiration monthly.
Learn more about the free program on page 10.
In addition to organizing the program and helping track exercise goals for all participants, we will sponsor fun fitness events.
It’s easy to become complacent about our health, but there are dozens of ways you can improve your health with just a little effort. The more you know, the more likely you are to succeed.
These pages can help you get there.
