I really enjoyed playing the trivia contest. There are a lot of interesting articles in

I enjoyed the November issue of Georgia Magazine from Cobb EMC. Thank you
for including a read-and-find contest.
I also want to thank you so very much for keeping my electric rates so low. I am
grateful my kwh rate is one of the lowest in the state-so happy.

From THE EDITOR
March is Women's History Month,
commemorating the contributions
women have made to society. So it's
particularly appropriate that in this, our
health-themed issue, we highlight the
research being conducted by Cassandra
Quave, a medical ethnobotanist at Emory
She and her team of fellow scientists
are studying Civil War-era medicinal
uses of native plants in an effort to find
new ways to combat antibiotic-resistant
bacteria. Turn to page 16 to discover how
their research is revisiting the past to help
improve the future of health care.
Next, we shift our attention to the
forefront of medicine with a look at
high-tech health care. New technologies
like "wearable" devices that track activity,
heart rate and other information are
enabling consumers to play a much
greater role in their health care.
Once analyzed, the data gathered
by these devices may result in decreased
medical costs and improved outcomes
for patients. Read "High-tech health care
puts Georgians on cutting edge," starting
on page 32, to find out how this technology is revolutionizing patient care.
But no matter how cutting-edge our
health care becomes, it can't help if
patients don't have access to it. According to the Georgia Charitable Care
Network, about 13 percent of adults in
the Peach State have no health insurance.
Many of these individuals, most of whom
are the working poor, either cannot afford
to purchase insurance, or it isn't available
That's where volunteer medical
clinics step in to fill the gap. Read
"Improving access to care," starting on
page 26, to learn how these clinics enable
uninsured patients to see doctors and
get the care they need.
