Letter from the President

A Teacup Poodle named Nala!

     I have spent quite a bit of time with people over 90 in the past year or two and I know how much they treasure visits from friends and relatives and, perhaps just as much or more, visits from dogs. Click here to see one teacup poodle I would love to own…or at least have a visit from!

     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:

  •      Dr Samuel B Adams, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon at Duke University Medical Center, says the new 3-D printed bone implant “is a tremendous breakthrough. It gives us so many more options that we didn’t have. “
  •      Sleep specialist David Dubose, MD, FAAP, FAASM, Medical Director at the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio Sleep Center, says obstructive sleep apnea in kids is more than a sleep problem. It can create serious problems such as “hyperactivity, aggressive behavior, inability to complete tasks, inability to stay awake” and be mistaken for ADHD.
  •      Dr Neil Sadick, MD, Dermatologist at Sadick Dermatology and Professor of Dermatology at Weill Medical College of Cornell University is using the Regenlite laser for skin inflammation and the results are impressive.

     The key to preventing strokes may be a new implantable cardiac monitor to detect the cause of the stroke. Dr Richard Bernstein, MD, Director of the Stroke Program at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago says it is taking the guess work out of the treatment and that’s quite reassuring to the patients.

     We also have a full length doctor’s interview with William Sandborn, MD, Chief of the Division of Gastroenterology at UC San Diego. The topic is Cronkhite Canada Syndrome and if you know what that is you will definitely want to read the interview…and maybe even if you don’t!

     In case you missed them, you may want to check our past reports, Premium Content in Archives Premium Content in Archives7-Minute Workout Premium Content in ArchivesVitamin D for Low-Grade Prostate Cancer. Premium Content in the Archives may be purchased for as little as $9 for 24-hour, unlimited access. If you would like to access Premium Content for the first time click here.

     The last special report is about a better ebola suit designed at Johns Hopkins by Youseph Yazdi, Executive Director for the John Hopkins University’s Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design. Three changes and they got the number of steps to get it on and off down from 20 to 7 and they are still working on getting it down even more!

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


Marjorie Bekaert Thomas

President, Ivanhoe Broadcast News


“To do good, blood must circulate. Money must circulate, too. Money must be distributed throughout the body politic, not be concentrated in the pockets of a few… A maximum wage linked to a decent minimum wage would help every family and every community live healthy lives – and restore balance to a nation ravaged by unbridled greed.”
-- Jeff Vogel
