D E PA R T M E N TS 3 Like many of you, I appreciate the beautiful landscapes of Harford County and spend many hours cycling through the countryside. Summer is the time of year that inspires outdoor activities, and the abundance of great-tasting, local produce is an added bonus. More exercise and healthier food choices are just two lifestyle changes that can yield improved mental and physical health. So take some time to enjoy our beautiful county and the weather that accompanies the season. It will do your body good. This issue of Maryland’s Health Matters highlights some myths that exist around the incidence of heart attacks, and features two local folks who share their stories of survival and recovery. Also in this issue is a spotlight on the Center for Advanced Fetal Care at the University of Maryland Medical Center, a world-class clinical and research facility dedicated to the care of unborn babies and their families.
