Summer’s here! And what better way to enjoy the magnificent weather than to get outside and get moving?

This edition of PA Health is focused on movement. In these pages, you’ll meet two young athletes who overcame injury and adversity to get themselves back in the game.

You’ll also learn about our bariatrics and weight management program, which has performed more than 7,500 bariatric surgeries. It’s made exercise and movement easier for everyone who’s benefited from their services over the last 20 years.

Ever thought about running a 5K — or even a marathon? In this edition, we share training tips to help you prepare. If knee pain is holding you back, but you’re not ready for surgery, read on to find nonsurgical treatment options that’ll get you up and moving again.

I wish you and your family a healthy and active summer. Get out there and have fun. If you’re on the Rail Trail in Lewisburg, you’ll probably see me — so be sure to wave.
