Upstate Senior Living 2020

www.UpstatePhysiciansSC.com | www.HealthLinksUpstate.com SL 3 | 35 ABOUT THE COVER... Welcome to our 2019 senior edition of HealthLinks Upstate . We were excited to photograph the Palmetto Senior Expo on Oct. 18. This event, held at the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium, featured 105 vendors all in one place and all for one purpose – to address the needs of our seniors. From medical to financial and insurance, as well as information on holistic healing, fitness, nutrition, local activities and classes, seniors who attended this event left with a wealth of knowledge. If you missed it, there will be another Palmetto Senior Expo on April 3, 2020. On to this spectacular senior edition. David Dykes, a talented local writer, covered scams. He interviewed a highly-qualified Frank Abagnale, the subject of the 2002 film “Catch Me If You Can.” He is now a cybersecu- rity expert and trusted advisor to the FBI. You don’t want to miss this informative article that could possibly save you or a loved one from a disastrous scam. We also covered articles on bone density and preventing falls with better balance. There’s a story on social isolation and how that can affect mental health. In addition, we delved into physical fitness in the golden years and how important it is to maintain your fitness past the age of 90 and beyond. And we wanted to talk about prediabetes. If you have been told you are prediabetic, you are going to want to read this article. We covered how you can keep diabetes at bay and the effects of diabetes once you are officially diagnosed. We want to thank all our writers, editor and graphic designer for a wonderful issue. We also want to thank our new photographer, Jerry Finley, for a great cover shot. We couldn’t do this without our sales team and always tenacious publisher – and most of all our contacts, who lend their expertise so that we can bring these articles to all of you. Thank you for taking the time to speak to us. We want to wish our readers a very happy holiday season. We look forward to another great year in 2020. Thank you, Upstate, for your support!
