Robertson County Health Fair

On September 17th, we held a Health Fair in Robertson County to help promote a healthier lifestyle. There was a wide variety of vendors offering information. We offered COVID-19 Bivalent vaccinations. The HANDS team was set up to pass out information about the program along with the "Touch of Life" models to help show the stage from conception to birth. Angie Combs was there with the inflatable colon display and was handing out information for the Kentucky Cancer Program. Primary Plus was offering BP checks and all of the bloodwork/screenings. We want to take the time to say thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Health Fair especially PrimaryPlus Robertson County and Robertson County Women's Club. 


Creamy Mushroom Soup Recipe 

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, butter, or vegan butter
  • One large onion, diced (or two fat shallots)
  • 4 garlic cloves, rough chopped (2–4 more for garnish, sliced)
  • 1 lb cremini mushrooms, sliced ( or use mushrooms of your choice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped (or thyme)
  • 1/4 cup sherry cooking wine (not vinegar) or marsala wine or red wine
  • 5 tablespoons flour (or GF flour)
  • 3 cups hot veggie stock, chicken stock or beef broth (or use water with bullion cubes) see notes.
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup sour cream ( 3/4 cup seems just right) or use vegan sour cream, cashew cream (or use heavy cream)
  • pepper to taste
  • Optional garnish: drizzle of truffle oil, garlic “chips” ( see notes) croutons, crusty bread!


Heat oil or butter in a large, heavy-bottom pot or Dutch oven. Add onion and sauté over medium-high heat, for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly until golden and fragrant. Lower heat to medium, add garlic and sauté for 2 minutes.

Add the sliced mushrooms, salt, and rosemary. Sauté for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, taking your time here, allowing mushrooms to release all their liquid. Add the cooking sherry (do not mistake this for sherry vinegar). Turn the heat up, and cook this completely off, stirring until most or all of the liquid in the pan has cooked off for about 3-4 minutes, and the mushrooms glisten. Optional: Set aside 1/4 cup of mushrooms for garnish.

Turn the heat back down to medium, sprinkle the flour over top, and stir constantly, toasting it for 1-2 minutes. Add one cup of hot stock and stir it in WELL, getting all those browned bits (in corners and bottom) mixed in. (A wood spoon works well here.) Add the second cup of stock, stirring well to combine, then add the third cup of stock and bring it to a gentle simmer, whisking. It will thicken.

Stir in the sour cream until fully incorporated.

Season with pepper and taste for salt.

Employee Shoutout of September: Teresa Moore.

Teresa has just recently joined our team in July! Teresa graduated from Maysville Community College in 1981 with a Associate of Applied Sciences in Nursing. She wanted to become a nurse at a very young age "my little brother ( who is a physician now!) became very ill and was taken to a local hospital then transferred to UK Children's Hospital. I saw how good the nurses were with him and wanted to be part of that! I wanted to help people , to " be the best part of someone's worst day " , to make a difference."

There can be more dangers ahead, for example:

  • Nighttime driving can be dangerous for anyone but even more so for teen drivers.
  • Teens and young adults typically have the lowest seat belt use.
  • Teen drivers are more likely to speed and allow shorter headways.
