Washington, and Seattle in particular, is a great place to give birth. There are so many available options, from where—hospitals, birthing centers, at home!—to with whom—ob-gyns, doulas, midwives. While the choices are a luxury, they can also be overwhelming (and conflicting); that’s what writer Sheila Mickool explores in this issue’s cover story (Baby Talk)
From birth to aging, we also look at some of the innovative residences and programs that are available for patients with dementia (“Memory Lane), from Aegis Living’s memory care floors that harken back to a familiar past, to the Frye Art Museum’s art engagement program all designed to help dementia patients live more engaged and social lives than ever before.
In addition, we look at the state of mental health (“Out of Hiding,” page 38)—and what primary care doctors and therapists are doing to pull all-too-common issues such as depression and anxiety into the spotlight.
Also in this issue:
—An Affordable Care Act primer
—The science behind the heart-healthy Mediterranean Diet
—Helping stroke patients walk again
…and much more. We hope that you find this issue’s great round up of health news helpful in your quest to good health. In addition, with this issue we are launching our monthly e-newsletter, chock full of even more timely local health tips and trends to tide you over between magazine issues.
