I’m a writer who makes a living helping healthcare providers share their stories.
It’s rewarding work where I learn useful things about health and wellness, and also about how people cope with health setbacks, from chronic to acute illnesses.
As a serial blogger in my personal life (this is my third!), I started Wellness Scholar to help others learn more about health and wellness in a fun, and hopefully, interesting way.
Like many people in mid-life, I’ve learned to appreciate good health more than ever because of elderly parents and young friends and family members who suffer from chronic illnesses.
Whether you’re a healthcare provider, a friend who is interested in wellness or someone who is challenged by how to live life to its fullest despite a health issue you didn’t ask for and don’t want, I’d like to hear from you.
If you’re blessed enough to be healthy, you’ve got the world by the tail. If you’re not, you’ve already learned a valuable lesson about how fragile life can be, and we have much to learn from you.
We can’t do much about our genes, but more and more, we’re learning that lifestyle choices have a significant role in how we age and what illnesses we’ll have.
I hope you’ll find something here that’s useful for managing your own health!
