The spring issue of Vital Signs magazine is now available

Look for the new spring issue of Vital Signs magazine this month. The magazine highlights the medical industry in Southeast Texas and also includes fitness tips and healthy recipes. It is distributed in physicians’ offices, at local hospital waiting rooms, pharmacies, and other locations across Southeast Texas. 

The magazine won back-to-back Texas Medical Association Anson Jones first-place awards in 2015 and 2016, receiving first place in 2015 for the article “Forensic nurses help provide comfort, justice for sexual abuse victims” and again in 2016 for “Never give up,” which appeared in the fall 2015 issue of Vital Signs. The article chronicled the story of Ronnie Hindsman of Livingston, who had both arms amputated after an electrical accident in 2004. He has resumed many of his favorite activities with the aid of two prosthetic arms. 

The spring issue includes a feature on the Southeast Texas Air Rescue Team and offers an exclusive look inside the Bell 407 helicopter and the air medical transport team that operates it. The team can mean the difference between life and death for those involved in auto accidents or other traumatic events. The number of transports for Southeast Texas Air Rescue has averaged between 500-621 per year, according to Glenn Anderson, program director for Southeast Texas Air Rescue. Pick up a copy of Vital Signs and meet this unique and heroic team of nurses, paramedics and pilots.
