Taking Medicine to a Global Level – with St. George’s University
If you’re a doctor or you’re studying to be one, then medicine is in your blood. But you might not have known how important it is to take your passion for medicine to the global level. International Medicine is here to stay – and one university is on the forefront of that trend: St. George’s University. Established in 1976 and located in stunning St. George’s, Grenada, the University’s medical, veterinary and public health programs have international medicine at their core. Medical graduates from St. George’s University have been licensed in all 50 U.S. states and Canada, and have practiced in over 50 countries around the world. According to an article in the Journal of Medical Regulation, the University is the #1 international provider of physicians in the U.S. – more than any other non-U.S. medical school in the world.

Smart Snacking – with Bard Valley Medjool Date Growers
Finding healthy snacks is essential for a healthy lifestyle.

They’re also a good source of heart-healthy dietary fiber, with no fat or cholesterol.

Starting New Traditions – with Kentucky Legend
Ham is a very popular tradition at Easter dinners, but there are other ways to serve it than simply on a platter. Chef Ralph Pagano welcomes The Balancing Act into his QuickBytes kitchen as he prepares some non-traditional dishes using Kentucky Legend boneless hams. They’re double-smoked with natural hickory, they’re easy to carve and serve, and they come in whole-, half- and quarter-sliced hams to fit any size holiday gathering! Plus, the company just recently released a new variety of flavors: Hickory, Honey, Black Pepper and Brown Sugar Barbeque. Just one of many reasons why Kentucky Legend is the #1 branded boneless ham in the U.S. For more information and inspiration, visit www.specialtyfoodsgroup.com.
