Dear Friends, 
With summer here, many of us are on the move, visiting family and friends or a new destination. Whatever your plans, we encourage you to soak in the moment as much as possible. In this issue, Medical Advisor Ben Kligler, MD shows us how.
For those keeping facilities clean and healthy for visitors, "Green Cleaning in a Healthcare Facility" offers essential tips from our cleaning expert. For an in-depth look at the professionals who clean every day, see the latest paper on our community-based research covering environmental health needs of Latinas in cleaning occupations. 
As always, check out our seasonal recipes to make "healthy" a part of your every day, and see photos of the farmer's market at Hackensack University Medical Center, bringing health home for patients, visitors and team members alike.
Wishing you health and wellness, 
Deirdre Imus
