Designing a Healthier Tomorrow
Welcome to the second edition of DAP Health Magazine.
The theme of this edition is ‘Designing a Healthier Tomorrow.’ We invite you to meet the people helping DAP Health innovate to create greater wellness for our community.
Our fashion story features DAP Health employees wearing thrift-store fashion from Revivals. Learn why a healthier planet starts in your closet when you “wear it again.” We assembled a dream team for this photoshoot. In addition to our health care models, we collaborated with fashion stylist Neil Cohen, photographer Kevin McDermott, and make-up artist Miki Straus (a former Queen of the Desert titleholder). The feature was shot at Palm Springs’ Moorten Botanical Garden — still family-owned after more than 70 years in business.
Wellness begins with We at DAP Health. Dive into the story about the services available on our campus. You will want to Namasté this way.
Meet architect Maria Song and learn how we are co-creating a health care home in our “Designing a Healthier Tomorrow” feature. The organic design details of our new Marc Byrd Mental Health Clinic were captured by photographer Donato Di Natale.
The Annette Bloch Care Building bears the name of the mega philanthropist whose generous gift helped fund the building. We lost Annette last year, but Linda Lyon, her daughter, continued her mother’s support of DAP Health by pledging $1 million to our capital campaign while giving a speech honoring her mother at an event celebrating her life.
In “Words Matter,” we explore person-first language and how choosing the right words can make ourselves and the people we talk about feel better.
In our leadership series, we profile two of our board members in a conversation about the future of health care and our Client Advisory Board, which guides the decisions DAP Health makes to better serve our patients.
And, in a nod to our LGBTQ+ history, we introduce readers to the new Palm Springs AIDS Memorial and feature a story about how lesbians led during the AIDS crisis.
We are proud to share this edition of DAP Health with you and hope it brings you closer to the (WE)llness everyone deserves.
