Collin County Living Well Magazine November/December 2017 - Page 6

FROM THE PUBLISHER Living Well Magazine Celebrates 10 Years of Service 2006 2016 COLLIN COUNTY President & CEO Sam Houston Vice president & CFO Spring Houston After binge watching the latest season of House of Cards on Netflix recently, Sam and I looked at each other and in unison said, “That’s who we need to feature in the magazine!” No, we weren’t talking about Kevin Spacey, we were referring to Robin Wright, whose character, Claire Underwood (spoiler alert), becomes the first woman president at the end of the fifth season of the political drama. The role of the scheming and manipulative Claire is a juicy one and allows Wright the freedom to showcase her sizable acting chops. At 51, Wright is finally getting the attention she deserves. And, guess what, she’s more vibrant than ever and, if her latest role in the recently released Blade Runner 2049 is any indication, she’s only getting better. She’s equally passionate about her philanthropic work. The Dallas native has worked with The Gordie Foundation in Texas, which provides young people with the skills needed to navigate away from drug and alcohol addiction. She’s also an activist for human rights in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We catch up with this dynamic, multifaceted actress inside to find out her secret to living well. Speaking of living well, Dr. Charles Toulson is helping people suffering from a full range of musculoskeletal disorders, diseases, and injuries. Dr. Toulson and his team at Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine share a passion for excellence in orthopedic care and work together to provide just that. Areas of specialty include adult hip and knee reconstruction, adult hip and knee revisions, robotic-assisted joint resurfacing, knee arthroscopy, foot, ankle and trauma. Read about his revolutionary approach to medicine in this issue. Inside you’ll also find a wealth of additional information on how to lead a better life. As always, we tip our hats to the community professionals that share their expertise with our readers. Their contributions are greatly appreciated.
