Remember almost three months ago, when I attended the Hispanic Business & Consumer Expo here in Orlando? There, I was introduced to a new publication that was being launched at that event, Epiko Magazine.
Epiko is a bilingual publication that caters to the Hispanic community (again, the group with the highest incidence of spina bifida) on different levels. The magazine has a fashion section, a food section, and, most importantly, a health section.
Upon hearing that oft-sobering statistic about spina bifida and Latinos, Juan Arturo Morales, president of Epiko, was intrigued. I am E-mailing him “as we speak” to get in touch with him, and ask if he is still interested in featuring a story about spina bifida awareness in an upcoming issue.
Here’s a brief update about me. While I still have a urinary tract infection, I’m drinking plenty of water and pure cranberry juice. I’ve actually been feeling better these past few days. It’s probably not due to the juice, since I only began drinking yet yesterday. I’m also trying to walk around the house more, so I’m at least moving a little. The truth is, the life of a 21st-century student, not to mention a blogger, is for the most part sedentary in nature. That sucks, because I’ve grown accustomed to sitting all the time, and I really don’t want to be an example of the “use it or lose it” idiom.
But, this is just me extrapolating. Honestly, I over-think things too much. I just need to get away from this tiny desk more often and breathe some fresh air!
On that note, I think I’m going to sign off. Take care of yourselves, all!
P.S. Yes, the banner was all that I found for an image with the magazine title. I’ve tried to be thorough here! You’re welcome. 😉
