Healthy Living Chicago was founded by Dr. Michael Veerman in 2015. The online magazine officially launched in May 2015. Dr. Veerman’s dream is to inspire Chicago to become a healthier society. At HLC Magazine, we work and communicate with local healthcare professionals to spread health advice. Our goal is to educate the Chicago public and its greater community about important and timely health topics. We also seek to ease the communication between healthcare professionals to present the most up-to-date research and technology to improve life in Chicago.
