Today launches a new series of columns I am starting this year.

“Healthy Actions” will appear once a month on Saturdays. I will write about a different health or medical topic each time. The goal is to educate consumers about how to take healthy actions to improve their lives.

Topics will include women’s health next month, and in the future, men’s and children’s health, nutrition and sports medicine. I also plan on looking at medical insurance and mental health topics. Each month, I’ll be working with a different expert from the local medical or health community for advice.

The series will be interactive, giving readers the opportunity to get involved through social media. It could be a Facebook Live session with the expert, where we will answer questions readers have emailed or submitted or where we dig a little deeper on a related subject. Or it could be something instructional.

If you have ideas for topics you’d like me to explore, email me at blinfisher@thebeaconjournal.com with the subject line “Healthy Actions” or contact me via Twitter (blinfisherABJ) or ask a question on my Facebook page (Betty Lin-Fisher, Akron Beacon Journal).

I look forward to growing in our Healthy Actions together!
