If you're in the market for some new recipes, while helping out a worthy cause, you'll want to get a copy of a new cookbook. Hot off the presses, "Great Intentions" is a collection of recipes from staff at several Robinwood Medical Center offices - the Endoscopy Center, Gastroenterology Associates, Digestive Disorders and Robinwood Department of Anesthesia.
The title highlights the initials G.I. - the abbreviation for the gastrointestinal tract. The G.I. is the area of the body in which three of these offices specialize.
The project, more than two years in the making, was the brainchild of registered nurse and anesthetist Rebecca Makdad. The project was undertaken as a way to educate the public about digestive health.
"It's both a cookbook and an educational resource about the more common G.I. disorders," said Penny Nicarry, facility manager for the Endoscoppy Center at Robinwood.
