Read the Fall 2020 issue.
Welcome to the first edition of Elevate! Previously known as Lift magazine, Elevate will take a broad look at health and wellness. Each quarter, we’ll bring you stories and information that can directly impact your family’s well-being.
In this issue, we talk to Angel Welsh, local radio personality about her decision to be screened for breast cancer and why it’s so important for others to do the same. We also shed some light on when you should get preventive screenings of all kinds - from diabetes to osteoporosis.
You’ll also find information on the timely topic of flu shots, which are more important than ever. Getting a flu vaccine this season can not only protect you and your family, it helps reduce the burden on our healthcare systems responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and save medical resources for care of COVID-19 patients. To make it even easier to get vaccinated, Owensboro Health launched curbside flu shots this year.
And just in time for New Year’s Resolution season, we’re sharing the story of Donnie Smith. Tired of not being able to do the hobbies he once enjoyed, he worked with our Surgical Weight Loss Center to lose 100 pounds and change his life.
We hope you enjoy this issue and wish you a happy, healthy season!
