EvergreenHealth Providers Commemorate 50 Years by Sharing Their Best Advice to Help You and Your Family Live Well for Years to Come

Compiled by Brittnie Eakle, EvergreenHealth Staff Writer

EvergreenHealth providers past and present have long shared the common goal of advancing the health of the community. While health tips have come in all shapes and sizes over the last five decades, the current generation of EvergreenHealth providers and physicians weighed in with the wellness tips they implement in their own lives.

Kevin Herron

"Every morning, imagine what your day would look like if you were doing everything you could to be healthy. Imagine the perfect day designed for perfect health. Then try to do a half or a quarter of that, and you will discover that you are well on your way to your health goals." – Kevin Herron, MD | EvergreenHealth Primary Care, Lakeshore Bothell

Harlie Bourdo-Brown

"I find that motivation, or lack thereof, is often the biggest deterrent to making progress toward a goal. We may desperately hope to transform our lives but find it difficult to take that first step. My biggest tip is that motivation follows action, not the other way around. Leap before you feel good and ready, and in turn, you will give yourself the opportunity to pleasantly surprise yourself." – Harlie Bourdo-Brown, PA-C | EvergreenHealth Obstetrics & Gynecology Care

Paul Boone

"Life itself demands the best of us all. So, keep moving and pay attention to your body. It can tell you a lot." – Paul Boone, MD | EvergreenHealth Primary Care, Sammamish

Analisa Armstrong

"I like to take 20 minutes every evening to lift weights, and I like to get outside and be active with my family every chance I get. Staying strong has helped me keep up with my two young boys!" – Analisa Armstrong, MD | EvergreenHealth Surgical Care

Prakash Varadarajan

"I try to focus on doing things I enjoy. I find running enjoyable and therapeutic. I was born into a vegetarian family and returned to these roots later in life. I do believe that traditional home cooking that developed over millennia is likely a good way to live." – Prakash Varadarajan, MD | Seattle Cancer Care Alliance at EvergreenHealth

Jennifer Lee

"Too often, we think of exercise as a chore. Our days are full with work, family, tasks and more. Sometimes taking a walk or practicing yoga is the only thing we do for ourselves in an entire day! I try to make sure I am taking time for myself and embrace those minutes of self-care." – Jennifer Lee, MD | EvergreenHealth Pain Care

Scott Cuthbert

"Health maintenance is a marathon not a sprint. You will not always see immediate changes with modifications. The most important thing you can do is choose a healthy lifestyle that you can maintain in the long term." – Scott Cuthbert, DO | EvergreenHealth Primary Care, Monroe

Joseph Castro

"Starting the day with a warm cup of tea (caffeine-free if you've got the willpower) or water can help you wake up, feel more energized and ensure you're hydrating yourself." – Joseph Castro, PA-C | EvergreenHealth Neurosurgery

Leticia Huynh

"Everything in moderation and laughter with those you love is truly the best medicine." – Leticia Huynh, MD | EvergreenHealth Primary Care, Redmond
