FROM KATHIE: Houston has long been considered a mecca for a variety of health care needs. People travel from around the world to seek medical attention and great care here. In one of our top stories this month (see Page 15), we report on the latest developments in the Cypress and Cy-Fair areas to help enhance our medical and health care services even further. I wish you all great health, but it’s good to know if you need medical attention, you are living in the right place! Kathie Snyder, GENERAL MANAGER

FROM DANICA: This month, we shed light on a local issue many may not even realize reaches us out here in the suburbs—the fentanyl crisis. In our front-page story, you’ll meet a Cypress mom who lost her 14-year-old son to what the Drug Enforcement Administration has called “the single deadliest drug threat our nation has ever encountered.” Our legislators also share how they’re working to decrease overdoses in our community and beyond. Danica Lloyd, EDITOR

Meet Jason Culpepper

Houston Metro Publisher

What’s your typical day as a CI Publisher? JC: It begins with reading our email newsletters, then touching base with staffers covering our Houston communities. I also like to stay close to our customers and trends in the region. Attending chamber lunches or networking is something I prioritize, and keeping on top of the operational needs and financial health of our metro fills out my week. I strive to serve my team each day based on where their needs are.

How do you spend your free time? JC: I serve on several boards within the Cy-Fair community where I grew up and where I’m raising my family. Patronizing local businesses, specifically our advertising partners, is also fulfilling to me. Aside from Community Impact, what have you read recently? JC: I just finished “The Intentional Year,” “Smart Brevity,” “The Measure,” “The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry” and “Intimate Allies.”

Email newsletters are booming for CI; why should readers subscribe? JC: They really are the best way to stay informed with the news of the day plus entertaining items, like new restaurants opening and events to plan your weekend.
