Welcome to Live Well, a Wellness Blog from Catholic Health

Hi! I'm Amy Kirst, the Web Specialist at Catholic Health, and I'm excited to introduce you to Catholic Health's first blog.

We've created Live Well as a place to discuss living well in Western New York.

As the Catholic Health website states, "a person's health and well-being means more than just treating their physical condition."

For some, living well means being in good health. For others, it includes values like spending time with family and friends, travelling or giving back to the community.

So, while the focus of this blog may be on maintaining or managing your physical health, it will also cover topics that influence your sense of well-being (like overcoming a fear of public speaking).

If you're familiar with the Catholic Health website, you may have read Ask the Expert, our online Q&A in which our healthcare experts respond to your questions. Those articles have been moved over here.

You can now submit comments at the end of each article, either by using a screenname or by commenting anonymously, which allows you to ask follow-up questions while protecting your privacy. We'll do our best to respond to each comment, so feel free to go through the archives and ask what's on your mind.

One thing to note: if you look below the blog post title, you'll see an author's name; this one, for instance, says "Amy K." That means that I wrote the blog post and the opinions are my own.

As the blog grows, we hope to bring others writers on board (expectant moms or caretakers, for example) who want to share their experiences with others. If you know anyone who would be interested, please ask them to email me at

The blog will be updated several times each week, so keep an eye out for new articles, or better yet, subscribe to our RSS feed or email newsletter (just enter your email address in the box to the right). No spamming, promise!


  1. Good luck with the blog! The gang will be regular readers.

  2. Great posts in "ask the expert". I learned a lot reading through them. I look forward to reading more (& I subscribed!) :) Great idea to get free health advice from local experts!
