As a new year begins, people often reflect on how to improve their health and how they can make a difference in their community. We hope you’ll find inspiration and direction within these pages. If you’re looking to lead a healthier lifestyle this year, be sure to read about the Lifesteps Program featured in this issue. Michelle Magan and Greg Warren discuss how the 14-week program taught them small changes to lose weight and keep it off. Do you want to make a difference in your community this year? Read our feature on Dr. Kerry Paape for some inspiration. Her love for animals led her to volunteer with Dream Riders of Kentucky — a group bringing the joy of horseback riding to those with disabilities. This issue also contains a special look at Owensboro Health Gives, complete with reasons why OH team members give, in their own words. No matter what your 2020 goals are, we hope the information in LIFT can be a resource for your success. Greg R. Strahan, MHA President & CEO Owensboro Health Greg Strahan, President & CEO Message from the President & CEO D Spotlight: Dr. Kerry Paape has been an animal advocate her whole life. Not only does she take care of horses — she also cares for four rescue cats in her home. Find out more about her passion for animals and people on the next page.
