Celebrate the season’s beauty

Sledding, skating, skiing and snow days. Winter’s here, and we’ll help you make the most of it with a tour of Pennsylvania places where you can bundle up and explore the great outdoors

If you’d rather stay home, try our tips for building a first aid kit, a must-have for every household.

In this edition of PA Health, we’ll also introduce you to three people who had life-threatening accidents. They’re back to health now and sharing their stories of how the people and departments at Geisinger came together to heal them. I began my career as an emergency room physician, so I know firsthand how every second counts in trauma cases like theirs. I thank them for sharing their stories and applaud the teams who provided care when it was needed.

And you can read more inspiring stories like these, including one about our REACH-HEI program, which pairs disadvantaged young people in our local communities with Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine students. This mentorship opens doors to a potential future in healthcare for these youth.

And finally, what’s winter without comfort food? We’ve got a delicious recipe right out of Geisinger’s culinary medicine classes offered in Selinsgrove.

I hope you enjoy this edition of PA Health, and I wish you and your family all the best this winter.
