Part of having a good team is having great team members, and our R-Health doctors are exactly that. Not only are our doctors always accessible to their members, but they constantly share insightful and intriguing information unrelated to medicine that our team and our members certainly enjoy. We asked Dr. Miller, our doctor at R-Health Voorhees, if she had any recommendations for our members, and she shared with us both a book and a delicious recipe.
For her book, Dr. Miller recommended Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult. Debuting #1 as a New York Times bestseller, the story follows a nurse who gets sued while battling the ever-present challenges of our time such as prejudice, justice, and race. Garnering great success since its debut, Small Great Things was recently added to the National Network of State Teacher of the Year’s (NNSTOY) booklist in 2017.
Furthermore, if you’re looking for a healthy meal, look no further than Dr. Miller. An R-Health doctor by day and amateur chef by night (we think), Dr. Miller loves to cook. She shared her recipe for Kale Soup below.
