What a month its been.  Promoting the goals of Racing Hearts, I have had the opportunity to present our work to a number of organizations around the Bay Area. I also appreciate the opportunity to connect with people and spread the word about heart health and safety.  One benefit of this community outreach is getting the chance to tap the intelligence of an interested audience.  I was lucky to be reminded by one audience member about one significant challenge in motivating people to act when it comes to cardiovascular disease: many conditions can't be seen or felt.  This discussion motivated me to think hard about ways to spark community interest in community health.
During this upcoming holiday season, I am thankful for my continued health and wellness, the health of my family members, and for the health of my community at large. May this upcoming season bring you and your loved ones time to explore what matters to you.
