Free program offers a lifetime of benefits

It’s just a coincidence – News Editor Jonathan Scott isn’t into New Year’s resolutions – but Scott is planning to take part in a community program offered by Baptist Memorial Hospital titled “Healthy You, Healthy L.O.U.” It’s a plan to help members of the community to develop a healthy lifestyle, something Scott feels certain will be a reward well worth the effort. (January 5, 2011, Page 4)
