One of the many things I love about our Desert community is how people come together to make good things happen. Someone has a unique idea, others are inspired to take part, and before you know it, the world is watching.

This edition celebrates a few of those accomplishments. We didn’t set out with that intention; it’s simply how it came together, a shared thought for many behind these accomplishments. When good intentions come to life, more good things happen.

We couldn’t be prouder of OneFuture’s recognition as one of 10 model organizations by the Carnagie Corporation of New York. Our community has rallied together in an extraordinary effort to support local youth in their transition to the workforce. Now, others across the country will recognize and learn from their success.

In 2010, John Feller, MD and his team set out to improve the standard of care for the growing number of men diagnosed with prostate cancer. Their 20-year research study is showing promising results and this month, the HALO Diagnostics team will present their interim findings at the American Urological Association’s annual conference.

We know the foods we eat can cause – and can reverse – disease. The science is growing, as are the number of doctors prescribing food as medicine. However, that science is not making its way into medical schools, so the renowned doctors at The Plantrician Project are now offering it free via Plantrician University.

Efforts like these can lead to tremendous change. Sometimes the people behind the ideas set out with those goals, and sometimes, it’s simply happenstance. Like the little business Michelle and I started last year. We never imagined Good Vibes Sound Bath would receive over 54M Instagram views and draw people from across the county. Many call the experience transformative and hundreds worldwide have reached out to learn how they can share it with their community. 

People are seeking solace, and for those offering solutions, it is time to rise.
