Let’s Get Formal… Somewhat
On very special occasions, I have donned a tuxedo to commemorate the celebration of a milestone. The wedding of a close friend, the honoring of an accomplished colleague and a presence at a black-tie fundraiser all have been cause for my penguin-like appearance. At these types of events, I am accepting of the serious yet whimsical nature of my personality. It’s time to let my true, if not vibrant, colors surface once again as I formally introduce to you, Healthy New Albany Magazine. Working with my colleagues at The Publishing Group Ltd., as well as the many amazing and supportive individuals in the New Albany community, I have had the good fortune to not only savor the joy of seeing this publication come to fruition, but also to assist with the opportunity to promote the importance of good health to New Albany residents, businesses and the learning community. Healthy New Albany Magazine is but one of the many initiatives (think Walking Classic, farmers’ market, etc.) of Healthy New Albany, Inc., a community-based, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to promote a culture of health that will serve as a model for communities throughout the country…and perhaps farther. I am proud to serve our first issue of Healthy New Albany to you to help whet your appetite for what is a first course on a menu of numerous healthful activities being held in our community. In this and every issue, you will be presented with a detailed calendar of health-related events taking place in the community and surrounding areas.

Classically NEW ALBANY
By Scott McAfee, New Albany Public Information Officer The New Albany Classic and the New Albany Walking Classic – no two events better showcase New Albany’s unique scenery, architecture and quality of life. Since its inception, the New Albany Classic Invitational Grand Prix and Family Day has raised more than $16 million to support the work of the Columbus Coalition Against Family Violence, now the Family Violence Coalition. The 2011 Classic on Sept. 25 once again will take place at the home of Abigail and Leslie Wexner and showcase a full day of activities like no other in New Albany. World-renowned performing acts like the Jonas Brothers and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks have attracted teens from across the country by performing at the Tween Brands Concert at The Classic, presented by Justice. Later in the day, one set of special performers gives way to another when the Invitational Grand Prix takes center stage. This international horse-jumping event features 30 of the world’s best riders, including Olympic riders and horses, as they compete for more than $100,000 in prizes. Classic fun continues throughout the day with family amusement rides, a petting zoo, face painting, hands-on art activities and a new sports experience that will be fun for kids and adults alike. All of this for just $15 per person (and children 12 and under are free). For more information, check out www.newalbanyclassic.com. The New Albany Walking Classic, to take place on Sept. 11, winds through various country club neighborhoods to showcase the breathtaking beauty of New Albany to the thousands of walkers who register for this event. Put on by race director Dr. Phil Heit and the New Albany Walking Club, this classic attracts participants and visitors from nearly every state and has earned its namesake by being voted the best walking event in America. On behalf of City Council and staff, many thanks go to Abigail Wexner, Dr. Heit and the countless volunteers who make these two iconic New Albany events so successful. Dr. Heit’s vision of a healthy community took another step forward last year with the creation of Healthy New Albany. This organization, established by area leaders and the New Albany Community Foundation, is in the process of implementing a multi-pronged strategy to keep health in focus throughout the year. One such tool to make this focus a reality is this very magazine. Another is the New Albany Farmers’ Market, which is taking place every Thursday through Sept. 8, appropriately enough, in Market Square. The market operates from 4-7 p.m. For more information about the market or other Healthy New Albany projects, visit www.healthynewalbany.org.

Bill Resch shares zeal for n
ill Resch’s passion for nature – and for teaching others to love and respect it – is rivaled by few. He’s at home in the New Albany schools’ 85acre wetlands preserve on the district’s 200acre learning campus – a place he helped envision 20 years ago. Resch was a key player in planning the learning campus, and he remains a driving force. “Basically, I’m the schools’ nature guy,” the 70-year-old New Albany resident says. “I have a passion for creating an oasis of nature in an urban setting to benefit future generations.” He also is actively involved as an environmental consultant for the school district and a member of New Albany’s Parks and Trails Advisory Board. Resch, who has lived in New Albany for 43 years and raised his three children here, has been influential in fostering the growth of the wetlands and nature preserve. Over the past 20 years, he has watched the school district expand from 720 students to more than 4,000. The nature preserve continues to grow, fueling Resch’s desire to uphold the district’s vision to reinvent education. One of his specialties is encouraging students to participate in the outdoor classroom through student-led projects, specifically New Albany High School’s required senior seminar projects. Examples include an information kiosk constructed by an Eagle Scout using 100 percent recycled material and a duck pond where a student is breeding Wood Ducks. “The nature preserve is an extension of the classroom,” says Resch, who taught in the Westerville City School District for 26 years prior to working with the New Albany-Plain Local School District. “Whatever their curriculum is, we’ll support them.” Resch is known for asking all nature preserve visitors to hug his favorite 300-year-old oak tree and repeat after him: “Thank you, tree, for the air we breathe and the food you make.” 14
nature with everyone he meets Whether lesson plans include observing birds or letting kindergartners make a campsite in the woods, Resch makes sure their needs are met. He and Sandy Willmore, fellow outdoor education coordinator for the schools, ensure that students benefit from this hands-on approach to learning. “To do what this job entails, you have to have someone with the spark and the vision – that’s Bill,” says Willmore. “There’s been nobody I’ve met who’s had as much impact on the community.” Though arthritis has made it difficult for Resch to get around the trails in the nature preserve, it hasn’t stopped him. His solution: a red recumbent bike. “I’m faster on my bike than I am on my feet,” he jokes. Resch enjoys giving visitors a “green carpet tour” – which Willmore describes as one of many “Reschisms” – on his bike. A unique feature of the nature preserve is a large oak tree whose age surpasses 300 years, and when Resch brings newcomers to the tree, he shares with them the tree-hugging ritual. After wrapping their arms around the tree, visitors repeat after Resch: “Thank you, tree, for the air we breathe and the food you make.” He doesn’t just live and breathe nature during the work day, though. Resch and his wife, Pauline, are currently building a LEEDcertified (Leadership in Energy Environmental Design) home on Morgan Road near the edge of the school campus, allowing him to live close to the wetlands and surrounding areas. The house is slated to be finished by January. LEED certification guarantees that a house or building meets certain requirements in categories including water efficiency and energy, thus making it a green and environmentally friendly home. Not wanting to waste anything, Resch even recycled pieces of the old house that previously sat on the land. “I love the nature preserve because it is a window into the beauty and magnificent balance of nature,” he says. “All learning for the students can be enhanced by this enriched environment. We are an award-winning program which is first in the state of Ohio, and we have a great staff that is very involved.” Heather Weekley is a contributing writer.

on the path: the classics
By Garth Bishop
The Walk of the New Albany Walking Classic continues to gain momentum
n its 2005 debut, the New Albany Walking Classic had 900 participants. Two years later, it was up to 3,500 – the number at which registration has been cut off every year since – making it the largest walking-only race in the United States. You might expect its organizers to be surprised at the 289-percent jump in participation over the course of two years. But in reality, that significant spike in participation was essentially what was expected. “I had a gut feeling that what we were doing was unique and would fulfill a need,” says Walking Classic founder Phil Heit. This year’s Walking Classic is slated to begin at 8 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, at Market Square. It includes a half-marathon, a 10K race and a kids’ walk for ages 6-12. Making the event walking-only helped it meet a theretofore-unmet need, Heit says. It also helped make participants more comfortable, as runners can be intimidating to walkers. 16
“We get them the best value of any event of (this) kind in the United States,” Heit says. “When I say ‘value,’ it is the low entry fee plus all the swag that is given.” This year, a complimentary Walking Classic windbreaker is standard, but each participant will also receive a variety of other items. Cost to register depends on one’s race of choice and how far in advance the registration is made, but it tops out at $60 and can be as low as $30. The event’s straightforward focus on health also helps set the Walking Classic apart from other races, and there’s significant anecdotal evidence to suggest that focus has paid positive dividends, Heit says. “I get the e-mails and stories of how people … have improved their blood pressure (or) have been able to accomplish a goal,” he says. “We get a lot of cancer survivors and heart attack survivors.” Organizers are looking into ways to more accurately gather data to validate the effectiveness of the Walking Classic and the training leading up to it. Linda Romanoff can attest to the inviting atmosphere of the Walking Classic – she started participating in it before she had even permanently moved to New Albany. In 2005, having just www.healthynewalbanymagazine.com
started a new job in New Albany, Romanoff learned about the inaugural Walking Classic at a New Albany Area Chamber of Commerce event and was quickly encouraged to join. “I was in temporary housing,” Romanoff says. “I hadn’t even really moved here yet when the event occurred.” She has been part of every Walking Classic event since, and is part of the New Albany Walking Club as well. Romanoff had participated in walking events before moving to central Ohio, so the Walking Classic was a good way to get back into it, she says. But the event’s appeal went beyond its familiarity, she says; the training schedule, the camaraderie, the new challenges and, yes, the complimentary items accompanying each race also contributed. She has even used it to help prepare for other activities – walking the half-marathon to help train for the Columbus Marathon, for example. “Initially, I just participated in the event – I really didn’t do anything except the event, and then after a couple years, I started volunteering to help at the expo,” says Romanoff. “The nature of it … makes me go and talk to people and try to encourage them to participate as well.” Though the 10K, half-marathon and kids’ walk on Sept. 11 are the highlights of the Walking Classic, the whole weekend will offer opportunities to improve your health. The Health Expo, 4-8 p.m. Sept. 9 and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Sept. 10 at the Jeanne www.healthynewalbanymagazine.com
B. McCoy Community Center for the Arts, will feature a variety of screenings, including bone density, blood pressure, cholesterol and range of motion, as well as other services such as gait analysis and footwear assessment. There will even be on-site mammograms, courtesy of OhioHealth’s new mobile mammography unit. A merchandise store at the expo will offer a variety of Walking Classic merchandise, as well as shoes, clothing and other items from national sports vendors. The Walking Classic has inspired more than just good health in its participants, Heit says – it has also spurred a greater emphasis on health in the community. That emphasis on health has given rise to the New Albany Walking Club, the New Albany Farmers’ Market, the New Albany Community Garden, Healthy New Albany and Healthy New Albany Magazine itself. “The walk has been an inspiration for all the other health activities that we’re going to be doing,” Heit says. Registration for all races can be completed online at www. newalbanywalkingclassic.com. Race packets must be picked up at the McCoy Center during the hours of the Health Expo, as well as from 3-5 p.m. Sept. 10. Photo ID is required. Garth Bishop is a contributing editor.

Family-Focused FUN O
Photo by Christa Smothers
Established 14 years ago by Abigail Wexner, the event – highlighted by family fun, a renowned equestrian event and national performing acts – is designed to financially and publicly support the Columbus Coalition Against Family Violence, which recently merged with the Center for Child and Family Advocacy to create the Family Violence Coalition. As of today, Wexner and the Family Violence Coalition, led by President Karen Days, have raised more than $16 million to help local families touched by domestic violence. The event is privately underwritten, so 100 percent of the proceeds benefit the Family Violence Coalition. “This is not just about an equestrian event,” says Wexner. “We really wanted to make this an event that speaks to what we hope for as a community, and part of that is healthy families.” This year’s Classic and Family Day is slated for Sunday, Sept. 25 at the Wexner home on Reynoldsburg-New Albany Road. Gates open at 10 a.m. Wexner conceived the event as a way to bring two of her passions together. “I was trying to think of a unique fundraiser for the community that hadn’t been done before, and I also was trying to figure out if there was a way to put this love of horses and jumping competitions to good use,” she says. “There are a lot of competitions around the country, and some of them have charitable components, but none of them are singly dedicated.” New Albany has been nothing but welcoming and supportive of the daylong event, Wexner says. “Part of the culture of the community has been giving and very caring,” she says. “Whatever it is – supporting the New Albany Community Foundation or the Homeless Families Foundation or other real needs in the community – it’s really important for the (New Albany) community to feel like it has an active way to participate. … It speaks volumes for the culture of the community when you can get that kind of support.” Days, who has been with the Coalition since 1999, says her favorite part of the Classic Invitational and Family Day is seeing the children’s faces. “Around the second year (of the Classic), we started giving blocks of tickets to after-school organizations like Directions for Youth and Families and a lot of the settlement houses, (so they could) see the horses and places they’ve never seen before,” Days says. “It’s rural to inner-city kids. They think they have to travel out of their state to see that, and it’s right here, right in their back yard. It makes me proud to be associated with an organization that shows inner-city kids this. It’s awesome.” In addition to providing area children with new, wholesome experiences, including a major concert and a professional horse-jumping competition, the event allows the new Family Violence Coalition to expand its offerings to the central Ohio community, Days says. “We are so fortunate that all the proceeds come to the organization,” she says. “Civil assistance is very Karen Days (left), president of expensive. … Typically, when something happens in the Family Violence Coalition, a civil situation around legal issues, the perpetrators and Abigail Wexner have will use the children to keep the victim in the home. worked together to raise more So if the victim wants to get a divorce and get away, than $16 million to help local the minimum amount is $2,500.” families touched by domestic violence.

Most victims cannot afford that, Days says, so the Family Violence Coalition provides free legal services through its law school program to help the victim leave the home. “If there is no free legal service to do so, at some point, that victim will have returned to the home or just given up,” she says. “A lot of those dollars have gone to making sure we can keep that mom with the kids and also provide the assistance necessary to go forward.” Money raised from the Classic and Family Day also goes towards awareness. One of the more difficult misconceptions about family violence is that it only affects poor people, uneducated people or people of certain races, Wexner says. “We know all too well that this is really an issue that doesn’t discriminate,” she says. “It affects all income levels, all religions, all ethnicities. It’s easier, in a way, to think of it as an uneducated, poor people’s issue. We’ve had lots of people tell us that, but the facts just don’t. … I think having 15,000 people come out once a year to celebrate what healthy families are is also reinforcing the message.” Gail Martineau is editor.

Painter gives back to cancer patients through silent auction 22
Laurie Clements knows what it takes to survive cancer. That’s why she decided to help her fellow breast cancer patients at Grant Medical Center by doing something she loves: painting. “Laurie came to us and said that her experience as a breast cancer patient at Grant was so positive and so inspiring, and her experience with seeing others receive treatment … made her want to do something,” says Pam Glasgow, OhioHealth development director. “She is a trained and skilled painter, and she wanted to use that talent to benefit others going through cancer treatment.” Clements founded Locks and a Lift, an annual fundraising gala and auction that has raised more than $50,000 since 2008 for women battling breast cancer through Grant Cancer Services. This year’s event will be held Oct. 13 in the lobby at the Residence at Creekside in Gahanna. Clements came up with the name of the event – “locks” for hair and “a lift” for transportation, though “a lift” can also symbolize how the event is trying to lift spirits. “(Clements) is just a truly wonderful and talented person who is using her talents to make a difference for others,” Glasgow says. “We (at OhioHealth) have been happy to support her in her efforts.” Clements plans to auction 20 to 25 of her oil paintings this year. “I taught at the Columbus College of Art and Design for 10 years, and then I was busy raising my kids so I didn’t participate in my own artwork for some time,” she says. “I decided it was time to get back to that.” www.healthynewalbanymagazine.com

a Lift After her battle with breast cancer about four years ago, Clements rekindled her interest in art. “Being with a lot of other women during treatment … I reflected about how difficult it must have been for other women,” Clements says. “I drove my own car to my treatment. Some of these women didn’t have transportation, and that’s not easy to handle when you’re sick.” She united her art with her desire to lend a hand, with the help of the OhioHealth Foundation. “Funds have been used to purchase wigs and help eliminate any barriers in terms of transportation,” Glasgow says.

Foods for Fitness
Healthful Harvest Foods
t’s become easier to eat locally and fresh thanks to New Albany’s Farmers’ Market. The market, held on Thursdays from 4-7 p.m., makes eating in season as easy as a walk to Market Square. There are many fruits and veggies ready for harvest in September and October – and even more tasty recipes in which to use them, says Suzanne Lucas, one of the organizers of the New Albany Farmers’ Market, creator of the New Albany community gardens and a botanist and plant breeder by trade. “Eating locally and seasonally means many things to me personally,” says Lucas. “It reminds me to slow down. To celebrate what is in season and in time’s passing. It helps me to reconnect with my childhood and memories of long family dinners. It roots me in my community and gives me a sense of security knowing that my meat was raised by Farmer Dick in Johnstown, my honey harvested by Latshaw on Harlem Road, my potatoes grown with care by Trish of Garden Patch Produce, my garlic from Mott Family Farms, and the rest lovingly grown by me and my boys in our own garden. “For me it is a ritual – taking the time to let the food dictate the menu and the season to shine through the flavor. It’s an everyday goal that I seek to attain rather than an everyday reality, unfortunately. I’ve found, however, every little step I take toward buying locally strengthens our local economy and is, in some small way, my vote for the return to simple, pure and natural.”

Ask the Expert
ou’ve just spent the summer basking in the sun by the side of the pool, chasing your kids at the playground and attending farmers’ markets galore. The summer’s been great for your tan, but what does that mean for your skin’s overall health? Dr. Mark Bechtel, director of the Dermatology Division at The Ohio State University Medical Center and a member of the Section of Dermatology at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, is here to help.
I’ve just spent the summer in the sun. Should I head to the dermatologist? You should consider seeing a dermatologist after the summer if you experienced any severe sunburns, noted a change in a mole or developed a new dark mole or any bleeding sores. How often and why should I go to the dermatologist? If you have a family history of melanoma, many moles, a personal history of skin cancer, or red or blond hair, with a tendency to sunburn easily or a history of frequent sunburns, you may benefit from being evaluated by a dermatologist yearly. See a dermatologist promptly for a changing mole or non-healing sore. Over the past 10 years, what has been the most significant change in how you treat patients? The most significant change in the way I treat patients focuses on the discovery of biologic drug therapy. We have been able to identify molecules in the skin that cause severe skin disease. Biologic medications have been developed that block the effect of these damaging molecules and result in significant healing of the skin. Is sunscreen necessary year-round? Sunscreens should be used year-round if exposed to the sun, even on a cloudy day. I recommend a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF (sun protective factor) of 15 or higher. What is the difference between UVA and UVB rays? UVA rays represent a longer wavelength of ultraviolet light and penetrate to deep layers of the skin (dermis). UVB rays help accelerate aging of the skin with damage to dermal tissues and help promote skin cancer. www.healthynewalbanymagazine.com
How often should you self-check yourself for spots? It is advisable for an individual to check their skin for any changes every two to three months. This self-examination should cover the entire body and often requires using mirrors. A spouse is often helpful in checking moles, especially on the scalp and back. Parents should check their children, too. How much vitamin D do I need, and how much do I get from the sun? Does sunscreen interfere with the body’s production of the vitamin? As far as vitamin needs, although sun exposure can promote vitamin D production, it can also promote the development of skin cancer. Patients should use sunscreens, which can interfere with vitamin D production, and increase their daily intake of vitamin D. I recommend 1,000 IU (international units) of vitamin D for adults and 400 IU of vitamin D for children per day. This can be obtained through vitamin therapy and foods rich in vitamin D, including salmon, fortified milk, fortified orange juice, tuna, fortified yogurt and fortified cereals. The FDA just issued new federal guidelines for sunscreen labeling. What does this mean? The changes will help consumers better understand the type and level of protection sunscreens afford. Sunscreens labeled as “broad spectrum” need to demonstrate UVA and UVB protection, as determined by FDA standards. Broad-spectrum SPF products with SPF values higher than 15 can claim to reduce the risk of skin cancer and premature skin aging. Non-broad spectrum sunscreens and broad-spectrum sunscreens with an SPF value between 2 and 14 cannot claim to prevent skin cancer, only to help prevent sunburn.
Director of the Dermatology Division, The Ohio State University Medical Center
Bechtel evaluates patients, performs consultations, trains residents and teaches medical students daily. Currently, he and a team of doctors are working on developing a cutaneous oncology center at the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital in the fight against skin cancer. Bechtel attended Vanderbilt University and received his medical degree at Indiana University. He spent his dermatology residency at the University of Louisville. He lives in Westerville, recently ran two halfmarathons and heads to the gym four days a week.
The last thought:
Severe sunburns during childhood increase the risk of developing of skin cancer later in life. It is important for children to use sunscreen and have protection from the sun. Jessica Salerno is a contributing writer. Feedback and comments welcome at email@example.com. 31

Do toning shoes — those sneakers with the rocker-shape sole that purport to tighten the muscles in the calves and thighs and burn calories — really work? At the June 2011 annual meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine, research presented indicated that muscle activation and calorie consumption were identical whether women wore regular walking shoes or Skechers Shape-Ups. These findings mirror a growing body of research that shows that these shoes do not support manufacturers' claims. But a study funded by and conducted on the Reebok toning shoe showed greater muscle activation compared to regular walking shoes.
Sneaking in the Veggies
To help fight the obesity problem in young children, researchers at Penn State added pureed vegetables to children’s favorite foods. In their study reported in the July 25, 2011 American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers served vegetable-enhanced entrees to 39 children between the ages of 3 and 6 on three separate days. The researchers modified the recipes for zucchini bread for breakfast, pasta with tomato-based sauce for lunch and chicken noodle casserole for dinner by adding a variety of pureed vegetables, resulting in a reduced calorie intake of 15-25 percent. Children found the vegetableenhanced versions to be as acceptable as the standard recipes. While some may argue that hiding vegetables in food is deceptive, it should be noted that recipes are modified all the time whether in restaurants or in the home. The bottom line: An increase in vegetable consumption is a health benefit that should be taken seriously.
