Awesome Writers Summit hosted by Dr. Dana Corriel and Dr. Candace Good

Read this blog and make an official comment against kickbacks for Optum, CVS and other PBM and hospital tied GPO that PREVENT patients and doctors from securing the BEST drugs, devices, and medical supplies and cost Americans $200 billion per year. That's $$ that is used to lobby for independent practice for non-physician providers.
Public comment closes on Feb 16. There are suggestions in this blog for comments to make and a link to make the comments.
Physicians cannot obtain lifesaving drugs or solutions—like epinephrine, saline, or albuterol—for their patients. Over 200 drugs on the shortage list.
Shortages....Here in America. Hurting patients and especially the indigent. https://free2care.org/free2care-urges-you-to-stand-against-costly-killing-kickbacks/

A Colorectal Surgeon is a Board Certified doctor who treats and diagnoses conditions related to the small and large intestines as well as the anus and rectal region. These surgeons have expertise in not only general surgery but have also undergone advanced training in the medical and surgical management of diseases of the intestinal tract, colon, and rectum/anus, and perianal area. Surgeons within this specialty have training in open abdominal surgeries as well as in minimally invasive procedures such as endoscopy or laparoscopy.

Typically, your Primary Doctor or your Gastroenterologist will refer you to the Colorectal Surgeon for evaluation of a specific condition or treatment of a given diagnosis.

As a pediatrician, I deal with vaccines all day every day. I am not old enough to remember when the polio vaccine first became available, but I can imagine that the excitement for it was similar to the excitement for the Covid vaccine's unveiling. Like many others, I have signed up to get the vaccine and am trying to wait patiently (which is hard because I am so excited!). Vaccine science will be forever changed with the advent of this mRNA vaccine. As a doctor who focuses on prevention, I cannot wait to see what the future holds!

It didn't feel like Medicine that I was practicing this last semester in my role as a college campus physician. I was part sleuth, part bed-and-breakfast operator, part public health servant...and a tiny part doctor!

Beautiful picture! Sounds exciting!!

Great article too. I find that in the college age group, their social gatherings outside the school is what creates a spike in cases. Excellent article.

#Colon #Cancer is the second leading cause of Cancer Deaths in the U.S. There are a number of #Screening tests that your doctor can recommend, depending on your age, as well as your personal and/or family history of colon cancer. #Colonoscopy, the #FIT test to check for blood in stool, and the stool #DNA test are some options available. Early colon cancer detection can dramatically increase the patient's chance of survival.

#Heart #Disease is the #1 Cause of Death in Women (all ages and ethnicities) in the U.S., with 22% of all women deaths yearly being due to it. Visit your #Primary #Care doctor every year and implement #Lifestyle modifications that can help reduce your risk of heart disease: #healthy #diet, adequate #sleep, daily #activity and #exercise, and #Stress #Reduction.

This week is National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week. Children can be exposed to Lead in older homes and buildings that were painted with lead-based paint. This is a SERIOUS Health Risk and can lead to low IQ and difficulty concentrating in class. Ask your doctor about lead testing if you suspect this is happening to your family.

Pediatricians and Pediatric Allergists play a fundamental role in health coaching of children with asthma. Children love and respect their pediatricians, and the majority of times will follow their doctor’s advice. In the case of asthma, this can lead to the successful management of acute episodes and overall improved health and quality of life.

Flu Season is Here. You can get your Flu Vaccine from your Primary Care Doctor during your visit.
Children, pregnant women, adults over the age of 65 and those with chronic health conditions (diabetes, COPD, asthma, among others) are at increased risk of complications from the flu.

Things you can do after you have been diagnosed with allergic rhinitis:

- eliminate or decrease exposure to allergens that trigger symptoms.
- take medications like oral anti-histamines, nasal anti-inflammatory sprays, or other treatments recommended by your doctor.
- undergo immunotherapy (allergy shots).
