Eating Healthy for One

Whether choosing to live single, or adjusting to a change in life such as divorce or death of a spouse, shopping, cooking, and eating for one poses a unique set of challenges. There are many who have successfully navigated these issues and some who are still on that journey. Talking with some of these folks gave some real insights into “tips and tricks” that many could find helpful.

Another Group of Medical Students Arrive!

The win for Rowan County was to have an infusion of 22 plus students each year, many bringing families along and staying two years.

Rowan County has so much to offer for these students. The loft apartments in downtown Salisbury are an attractive option for many, and the new Bell Tower Green is anxiously awaited. The students are quite a diverse group and include some who graduated from our local high schools and went on to college and medical school, to others from across the nation.
