Recipe: Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are one of my favorite party appetizers, but I never make them for myself. Perhaps that’s what makes them seem so special to me. Eggs are the epitome of spring foods, so this season is the perfect time to take a fresh look at this favorite. Here are three recipes to inspire creativity with deviled eggs: sour, herbal and spicy.

Shady Grove Doctor Becomes Nurse for a Day: Part 2

New Generation at Risk for Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer was once considered to be an “older person’s disease,” typically impacting men and women over the age of 55. Recent data has shown that this is no longer the case. A study published on Feb. 28 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found that while the rate of colorectal cancer is declining overall, it is increasing amongst young adults. In fact, someone born in 1990 now has double the risk of early colon cancer and quadruple the risk of early rectal cancer as someone born in 1950. With a new generation at risk, it’s more...
