July/August 2020 – Exclamation Points!

It’s Good to be Back!

Kay Garrett.

Hello Brazos community! Boy does it feel good to be moving toward some sense of normalcy. I am adjusting to the new normal and hope things can continue to move forward. The COVID-19 crisis hit everyone in some way; however, I know our community is strong, and we stick together. We are Brazos Strong!

Our cover story highlights seven important areas of medical care that you might have put on hold for the past few months. Memorial Hermann Sugar Land introduces us to seven physicians dedicated to helping patients live a healthier, happier life. Read about these amazing healthcare heroes on page 6. Also take a look at our Medical Focus section as its one not to be missed. There you will find many articles from family physicians to specialists throughout our community.

Back to School is around the corner! This year may look a little different, so parents, getting everything together to ensure a smooth family transition from summertime to school time is really important. To help parents get one step ahead, read our absolutely! Kid Friendly section on page 10.

July 4th will be heating up and what could be more exciting than celebrating our nation’s birth right here in Fort Bend!  We have highlighted two master chefs from our area who share some delightful recipes for your July 4th or summertime celebration. I hope you will try one, and let us know your favorite!

I hope your summer is filled with family and friends and a little fun, too. Congratulations to all of the 2020 graduates, and Happy 4th of July to all of our Brazos community. Thank you to all service men and women past and present for the sacrifice you make each day to keep us safe and our country free!

Absolutely yours,

Kay Garrett
