Apple is pleased to acknowledge its partners:
From 1992 until 1994 I was a member
of the staff of AHFMR which was
under the able guidance of Matt
Spence. I have noted the significant
mutations its magazine has undergone
over the years (including merging
with Apple in 2014). I now write to
congratulate you on the contents
and what I perceive to be the editorial
policy of Apple. Its articles are always
written in language simple enough
for important concepts to be widely
understood, it maintains a focus on
the messages of disease prevention
and health promotion and it presents
them with the authority of experts but
without overstating them.
My compliments to you
and your colleagues.
We're looking for everyday Albertans
to share their health experiences
From juggling meals on weeknights to
helping your kids become independent,
your voice and stories will help us tell
better stories in our magazine. Your
suggestions and ideas for stories
are also welcome.
Let us know if you'd like to be part of
the Apple resource list and would like
to be featured in our upcoming issues.
Drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org or

Apple is pleased to welcome Lynda
Harrison as our new associate editor.
She joined us November 1, just in time
to help get this issue to press.
Originally from Sherbrooke, Quebec,
Lynda is a seasoned newspaper
reporter and editor who worked for
several years in British Columbia. More
recently, she was a writer with June
Warren-Nickle's Energy Group and
editor of Calgary Outdoors magazine.
