Letter from the Editor - Eric Von
Wow, here we go again. It’s already April, the first quarter of 2015 is a fond memory. As we look toward to the remainder of the year, we see a full calendar of events and engagements. There is a huge roster of health fairs and seminars scheduled for this Spring and Summer. I am happy to see that so many organizations are taking up the health and wellness mantle, working to improve the health of the people they come in contact with. That’s what we envisioned when we launched Brain Brawn & Body two years ago. Our mission was to raise awareness both inside and outside of the healthcare community.
Locally, April brings us Sankofa, the largest community health fair in the city, providing a wealth of services and information to Milwaukee’s urban population. It’s sponsored by one of our wonderful partners, the American Cancer Society. We’re excited to be a part of it. We’ll be hosting one of our popular Brother to Brother sessions during Sankofa (Saturday, April 18) and we hope men, young and old come out and participate.
We have assembled a great team to help plan our biggest endeavor to date, the 2015 Brain Brawn & Body Health and Wellness Summit which will take place on Saturday, June 20. Once again, another of our great partners has stepped up, Wheaton Franciscan Health Care, to present this comprehensive day of health and wellness provision to a community sorely in need of information on the subjects. We’re asking our subscribers and everyone to “save the date” and plan to be with us for this free event. There will be something for everyone from young people who will have an entire football field to play and learn on, to our host, Journey House, a community based organization with a wonderful facility where participants will be able to do a variety of things from exercising their bodies to stretching their minds. More details will follow, so stay tuned in.
And speaking of tuning in…my life gets a bit busier as I return to radio on April 6. That’s right, I’ll be doing what I love again, hosting the morning show at 860 WNOV The Voice, weekdays from 7-9 am. It’ll be fun to get back in the studio. I never told anyone, but it’s therapeutic for me! It’s the greatest job in the world and I’m thankful for the opportunity to get back to the work I think I’m built for. I invite you to join me.
There’s more to come. Stay close to Brain Brawn & Body to find out what’s next.
