Each month, we weigh in on a health and wellness myth and explain the real cause behind the malady.
This month’s misconception: Waiting to go to the bathroom isn’t harmful.
Spring is coming, and it’s a great time to lighten up the lunchtime routine. This recipe makes a great pack-ahead lunch and is designed for easy substitutions. Leftover chicken would work just as well, as would brown rice instead of the quinoa or baby spinach instead of the romaine.

For nearly 60 years, the Carroll Hospital Auxiliary has been an integral part of Carroll Hospital’s history and its success. This volunteer organization was formed in 1958 —three years before the hospital opened—to raise funds to build a hospital in Carroll County.
In 2013, Carroll Hospital unveiled Vision 2020, a seven-year strategy to create a new model of care: one that focuses not only on delivering exceptional care for the sick, but also on helping community members get healthy and stay well. Now three years into the ambitious plan, we sat down with Helen W. Whitehead, chair of the hospital’s board of directors, to see how Carroll Hospital is transforming that Vision into a reality.
