Peek behind the scenes: Making a health magazine

A magazine, of course, does not create itself. Stories must be written, headlines crafted, pages designed, photos shot. We are well into development of the winter issue of Upstate Health, and I thought you might enjoy a peek behind the scenes.

These people are a few of the people you'll find on the pages of Upstate Health, a quarterly magazine that inspires healthy living with stories about medical care and wellness and subjects that pertain to life in Syracuse and Central New York.

Read the inaugural, fall issue of Upstate Health.
