Alone We Can Do So Little; Together We Can Do So Much
This powerful quote by Helen Keller will forever stand the test of time. When we work together on a common goal, we can achieve things beyond our greatest imagination. This is especially true if our intentions are real, and the purpose is for the greater good.
We were so honored to bring Terry Wahls, MD, to the desert. She is changing lives and is the ideal example of integrative medicine working for whole person care (see page 13). Partnering with the Eisenhower Wellness Institute grew the event beyond our expectations and helped deliver her message of ‘food as medicine’ to a larger crowd, improving many more lives. Working with others also made the effort more fun, exciting and rewarding.
That is the idea behind the Clinton Health Matters Initiative: collaboration for the greater good. It sounds too big for many to grasp, but it really isn’t. And once you step in, you are not alone. You are partnered with others who can help move your ideas or initiatives forward. It’s fun – and very rewarding.
Helen Keller’s quote summarizes this issue of Desert Health® so well. Its author graced this earth as a child at the same time as Edith Morrey who we feature in Health is a Choice. Edith made choices along the way that created a vibrant life for 102 years and counting.
Helen Keller would also be very proud of the services of the Braille Institute (pg. 12). Their ‘low vision wellness’ programs are free to all.
We love hearing from you.
And keep working together for the greater good.
With appreciation ~
