We all know how food impacts health and how a well-balanced diet is correlated with living longer. All of our inner organs are influenced by what we feed them, and just as importantly, our skin is also impacted.

We need to eat certain types of foods to keep producing healthy skin cells and to help us look and feel younger.

Mayra spoke of the extreme pain and inability to work or care for her son. Hermelinda tearfully said she thought she would not be able to create the floral arrangements that were her specialty. Juan excitedly told of relief from excruciating head pain so that he could be daddy once more and play with his young children. They all prayed for an angel to come and help them. These angels are the volunteer physicians, nurses, anesthesiologists, and various healthcare professionals mobilized into action by Champions for Health (CFH), a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve community health and wellness, access to care for all, and support for physicians through engaged volunteerism. This CFH vision is to get people healthy, and to keep people healthy, through an integrated approach of service provision and partner collaboration.
