It’s during these hot summer months that many of us spend the most time outdoors. Whether swimming, boating, hiking or just lounging in the sun, the carefree time we spend outside with loved ones helps create some of our favorite memories.

During this time of year, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. With that in mind, our feature on moles is a great introduction to self-exams and signs to help aid in the early detection of skin cancer.

In this issue of Healthy Living Made Simple, we are fortunate to have Joe Torre, legendary Major League Baseball player, manager, hall of famer and executive vice president for baseball operations, share his incredible story. Joe opens up about his triumph over prostate cancer and the many challenges he faced raising a family as a player and manager in Major League Baseball. It’s an open and frank discussion that we’re sure you’ll enjoy.

Fixing a meal or going out to eat is usually a routine, almost mundane, part of every day unless you or one of your loved ones has a food allergy. Our story on understanding food allergies and intolerances sheds light on this growing condition, and provides ways to address and avoid food triggers through patience and practice.

Our goal at Healthy Living Made Simple, and Sam’s Club in general, is to provide our members a reliable and valuable health and wellness destination. Whether it’s through healthy foods, our award-winning Pharmacy, our Hearing Aid and Optical Centers, or the wide-range of products we have available in-club and online — we have our members’ wellbeing top of mind.
