New Hope in Treating Alzheimer’s.

Early detection, available drug therapies and promising research are bringing hope to Alzheimer’s patients, their families and caregivers who have long found little reason for optimism about this disease.

On average, someone suffers a new or recurrent stroke every 40 seconds and someone dies of a stroke every 3.1 minutes.  Stroke is a leading cause of serious, long-term disability in the U.S., with approximately 4.7 million stroke survivors alive today.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an immune-mediated disease that affects the brain, nerves that connect the eyes to the brain, and spinal cord. Approximately 400,000 people in the U.S. have MS, which typically begins between the ages of 20 and 40 and is the leading cause of non-traumatic disability in young adults.

Perfect Sides to Any Summer Dish

Perfect Sides to Any Summer Dish

Kale is all the rage! Think outside the salad bowl and roast a batch of kale as “chips” – perfect to serve in place of traditional potato chips.  Because these kale “chips” are baked instead of fried, you’ll save calories and fat grams – plus dish up a dose of antioxidants key to your good health!

Carrot “chips” add a burst of bright color and nearly “sweet” flavor to snack time or as a side to your luncheon sandwich! Choose extra-large carrots for the simplest way to shave into strips.

Open Face Caprese Sandwich

Caprese salad is a summertime favorite. This time we’re serving it up as a sandwich, and roasting the tomatoes into a delicious salsa! Roasting veggies caramelizes their natural sugars for an extra layer of flavor. Don’t forget to make extras – the salsa makes a great topping for pizza made on the grill.
