Ask Dr. Gott 3/1

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a relatively healthy 48-year-old nurse with no history, no meds and no allergies. I developed severe abdominal pain and was diagnosed with diverticulitis. I knew immediately, as I have been preaching to my patients, that nuts, seeds, corn and popcorn were out of my diet, which my gastroenterologist confirmed. Although I am not a big nut and seed fan, I do like corn and popcorn.

That's right, volunteering not only benefits the community but it can benefit the mental, physical, and social well-being of volunteers.
