Letter from the President

Are Gentlemen’s Dinners Sexist?

     Of course they are and that’s why it surprises me that I support my husband’s desire to host one every few months. He invites 15 men and uses linen, china and silver and they stay until all hours of the night eating, drinking and talking. I always go stay with my sister so they don’t think I am listening in or checking on how much they drink or wishing they’d leave earlier. My only regret is that these same men would not be as relaxed and talkative if wives and girlfriends were included. IF you call it sexist you are right and frankly I am amazed that I don’t resent it. It may just be that I am living in a post-sexist world…or is that just as wrong as anyone thinking America is a post-racist world???

     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:

  •      Researchers at UPMC have developed a simple test for concussions that a doctor could carry in a pocket. Anne Mucha, DPT, says it is called vestibular ocular motor screening (VOMS) and is 90 percent accurate.
  •      Researchers at Washington University in St Louis are working on a personalized vaccine to stop melanoma in its tracks. Dr Gerald Linette explains the dramatic shift away from toxic chemotherapies.
  •      Doctors at 78 European centers compared angioplasty that sends the catheter through an artery in the groin versus a newer method of using an artery in the wrist. Dr Krishna Tummalapalli at UPMC says recovery is much easier with the new method and he expects twice as many doctors to start doing it this way now that the Matrix trial results from Europe have been published.

     An alarming report on the two million cases of self-injury in the US every year is our first special report, “Coping With Cutting.” Lori Vann, MA, LPC-S, a self –injury counselor in Dallas says it seems to be an epidemic and she thinks as many as 20 percent of young people may do it.

     Our full interview with Deborah Backus, PT, PhD, Director of Multiple Sclerosis Research at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta is interesting. She is studying massage for MS.

     Finally, Jose R Fernandez, MD, Family Physician at JMJ Family Practice is sure that for a healthy pregnancy, what you eat does matter. He put Sarah Hayes on a Paleo diet that includes no grains, no dairy, no soy and no corn. After having two miscarriages, she believes the diet made the difference because she now has a healthy new addition to their family, baby Lucy.

And there's more where that came from...

“When I see the “Ten Most Wanted” lists… I always have this thought: If we’d made them feel wanted earlier, they wouldn’t be wanted now.”
