FROM THE PUBLISHER TEXOMA AREA PRESIDENT & CEO Sam Houston VICE PRESIDENT & CFO Spring Houston “N NO MAN IS AN ISLAND o man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main,” penned poet John Donne in 1624. This rings true even more so today, as our daily rou- tines, lives, and businesses have been upended because of COVID-19. The pandemic has isolated us from family, friends, and collegues and has ripped bare the notion that it’s one versus the many. Each and every one of us needs community to thrive for the survival of one and of all. With that in mind, in this issue, we introduce you to Brian L. Hambrick. An Orthopedic Physician Assistant and Sports Medicine Specialist at Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, he personifies the idea of put- ting community first. Growing up in Sherman, Hambrick grew up with a deep love for family, community, and sports. This is why he came back to Sherman after his medical training, to care for the community he’s always called home. He considers it an honor to care for the residents of the area where he was born and raised. We recently sat down with Hambrick to learn how his small-town upbring- ing in Sherman has influenced him and why being able to give back to the community that is so much a part of him and that helped raise him is so rewarding. As you’ll read, the concern and compassion Hambrick has for his patients is readily evident. He treats patients like family because he considers them family. Read how Hambrick’s hometown approach is making a difference in the lives of all those around him. Farther from home is another person making an impact during these uncertain times. You may recognize Ryan Reynolds from his big screen roles, including that of superhero Deadpool. If you’ve been following him on Instagram along with his 35.8 million other fans recently, you know that he’s been making an impact in his home country of Canada and his adopted U.S. home while quarantined with his family. Along with his wife Blake Lively, the pair has donated $1 million to food bank charities and pledged $400,000 to New York City Hospitals, along with lending their celebrity to encourage their fans to help in their ef- forts. Turn to our celebrity feature on Reynold to read how he’s making a difference during these uncertain times. On behalf of everyone at LIVING WELL Magazine, we are grateful for our healthcare partners’ selfless service during these unprecedented times and for our readers’ continued support. Thank you, as always, for reading.
