Summer’s Out, School’s In!
ummer is winding down, and the kids are on their way back to school, which makes for the perfect time to start thinking about the things that affect your family. Shopping is usually on the top of the to-do list this time of the year, and NVM wants to help! Look for our feature on back-to-school trends at some of the North Valley’s most popular shopping destinations. It’s filled with inspiration on how to get the school year started.
We’re happy to be supporting such a worthy cause as Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Carolyn Evani, board president of the Phoenix chapter, talks to NVM about the great work done by the organization and how much progress has been made in the Valley. The 20th anniversary of Race for the Cure will be taking place on October 14, and we’re looking forward to seeing the community come together.

We know that your and your family’s health is always a top priority. That’s why, with the help of Avvo, we’ve put together our annual Top Doctors list to serve as a guide for you when you’re looking for the right physician for your needs. It’s important that you get the best medical care possible—and you can trust the doctors on our list. Check out our “From Seller to Cellar” feature to learn about wineries in Arizona. Not only do they make a great weekend trip but supporting these Arizona wineries also helps our state and community. And we’re happy to be introducing a brand-new column, “Between the Pages” with Julie Carlson, which will review the latest books waiting to be read.
