Letter from the President
 

Name Change for Pickleball?

     About 3 months ago my business partner, Bette BonFleur, introduced me to pickleball, a great new sport with a pretty ridiculous name. Bette also introduced me to polo 30 years ago and that has been the center of my life ever since but I gave up playing it 5 years ago when it just felt like I might fall on a brick floor with a horse on top of me. Of course, a polo field is not brick but in my mind it was…so now I am playing pickleball 3 to 4 times a week instead! Anyone over 50 who loves competition needs to find a court and a group to play with…it’s the most fun I’ve had since my last polo game. And I probably would have loved the dog named Pickles owned by the man in Seattle who created this new sport.

     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:

  •      Dr Ian Thompson at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio is studying the relationship of chronic inflammation in men’s prostate and how it may contribute to prostate cancer. It definitely doubles the risk of getting prostate cancer but he is not sure it causes it.
  •      Dr Dean Li at the University of Utah School of Medicine is studying multiple myeloma and he thinks there may be a new use for an existing drug that could be made available to patients much sooner if the FDA approves it. The drug is fasudil
  •      Dr Philip Bailin, dermatologist at Cleveland Clinic, is using a new pain-free way to check suspicious moles for melanoma. It’s called MelaFind.

     We are also featuring a 3 part series on our website this week that is near and dear to my heart: “Raising Daughters.” We examine the father factor, the ways mothers can be role models and the dangers of too much technology. Anyone who has a daughter or was a daughter will love these reports.
