In this season of joy and thanks, we here at Healthy Living Made Simple also want our readers to keep their own well-being top of mind. From the foods you eat (or don’t eat), the exercise you get (or don’t get) to your overall state of mind, the holidays can be a time for joy, peaceful reflection, and in some cases, even stress. In this issue, you’ll find some comfort and helpful tips to make it through the holidays both happy and healthy.

For our cover story, award-winning journalist and host of CBS Evening News, Scott Pelley, shares his health journey and what role the media can play in educating the public about diet and health concerns. There are so many ways for people to receive information and Scott understands that journalism can do a better job at informing the public on this important issue.

November is National Family Caregivers Month, and caregiving is a subject we take seriously on the pages of Healthy Living Made Simple, online at and in each

Sam’s Club location across the country. In 2015, there were more than 1.6 million new cancer diagnoses in the U.S. When you add the family and friends that care for these individuals, the number of people impacted by this disease can more than double. In our Caregivers Commitment section, experts from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles walk cancer patient caregivers through the process and provide answers and tips for giving loved ones the best care possible.

Our goal at Healthy Living Made Simple is to provide our members a reliable and valuable health and wellness destination. Through healthy foods, our award-winning Pharmacy, Hearing Aid and Optical Centers, and the wide-ranging products you’ll find in-club and online, our members’ well-being is always a high priority.
