profiles of healthy living

These profiles have been written about people who are making decisions that encourage healthy living. Some people are putting those decisions into action in their own lives or in the lives of the people around them — to fight off symptoms of an illness or to promote lifestyle changes that prevent illness. Others are scientists, researchers, or doctors who are investigating illnesses, finding new treatments, and helping people lead healthier lives.
