Dr. Joan's Life Tip of The Month  

For vitality, sleep well and eat wisely. Prioritize getting a good night's sleep, as well as nourishing your body with the right foods for you and your lifestyle during waking hours.

What is Dr Joan up to?
-Summertime and the pool is now open. Yippee!  
-Returned recently from my son George's in Steamboat Springs CO. We kicked-off editorial and promotional activities for my new book Sitting Kills, Moving Heals, scheduled for publication later this year.
-June 13, did a fun interview all about Sitting and its hazards for the COSTCO monthly magazine. Read it in the September/October issue.
-With the last flight of a space shuttle, Atlantis, in the air right now, I will appear in retrospective articles on the importance of this program. I feel so fortunate to have been a part of this special story that is the NASA Space Shuttle Program. Check out a few of my fondest memories related to the program here.
