Food. We eat it everyday to keep ourselves alive and functioning. For most people however, food serves a much greater purpose. Meals serve as a gathering place for friends; recipes are a way to pass down traditions from generation to generation. Not to mention trying new dishes and foods is satisfying and good for the soul.

So why not spice it up a bit, support UNH students and check out the upcoming Gourmet Dinner!

On Tuesday, the 22nd I went to the Soho NHS Walk-In Clinic of London and was able to experience the difference between the US healthcare and that of London first-hand.
