Pathways Role Modeling             

On July 13, seven Pathways employees participated in the Drenched 5K held in Clarksburg, MD.  Many patients at Pathways struggle to imagine a life free of drugs and alcohol. By modeling the pursuit of fitness, fun and healthy relationships, the staff is dedicated to helping Pathways patients and families to do the same. Photo from left to right: Reed Olson, Anne Olson, Misty Milbrodt, Mandy Larkins, Daniel Watkins, Andi Grauer, Rachel Coffman, Kenya Smith.

August is the Perfect Time for Gazpacho!            

Here's a great treat to help you get through the Dog Days of Summer and take advantage of the local produce you purchased at the Farmer's Market. To make gazpacho you need tomatoes, cucumber, green pepper, onion, spices plus a little olive oil and red wine vinegar. It's a delicious and nutritious chilled soup that will delight your taste buds. Click here to find the recipe on our website.  

Inspiration by Energize                      


"With Energize's Reduce It program for stress reduction, Weight Watchers at work and yoga classes and I feel that AAMC is really supporting the employees in their quest to improve their health. I have found that for every pound I lose it's like taking 3 pounds off of my joints and spine. My joint pain has decreased significantly over the last year, in large part due to the weight loss."
