For Those Who Are Called To Heal

Marissa Horak’s note.

The coronavirus pandemic the nation continues to grapple with has brought some long-deserved attention as to how those serving in the medical field contribute a vital benefit to the day-to-day health and well-being of a community.

The medical community has been the face of the front line in this health crisis. But beyond our emergency rooms and hospitals, there are countless personnel affiliated with the medical community working in a more behind-the-scenes capacity for the greater good — from the researchers and scientists laboring to understand the virus and locate a cure to the perhaps the most unsung heroes, those in the mental health community who are implementing their knowledge to aid us in these times of stress, anxiety and depression.

This issue of Great Lakes Bay Magazine is dedicated to the timely topics of health and medicine.

Another “medicine” we often forgo in times of angst but should consider is laughter. It releases endorphins, it helps you step away from stress and it is something we should all look to do when we can. This month’s lifestyle feature looks into a local radio show that proves that laughter can be the best medicine.

In one way or another, we could all use some healing right now. It’s reassuring to know that there is an army of compassionate people out there who have dedicated their lives to helping us along that difficult journey.
