Editor's Note 1/16/14

Finally, millions who have been denied health insurance are now getting coverage. But when the bills for Obamacare start coming due, it will become more obvious than ever that policy needs to shift from reaction to prevention, from treating disease and obesity to persuading more of us to eat good food and move more. In this year’s health and wellness issue we profile pioneers in that effort, from a doctor dedicated to educating kids about eating right, to a professor leading a medical school to become more of a health school, to a fitness instructor who targets overweight and out-of-shape doctors, with the idea that fit doctors can spread the message to their patients. We solute these innovators, as well as the gyms, fitness clubs and specialty workout studios that have been at this for a long time, working to give us better bodies, better lives. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and publisher
