I wasn’t big on the idea of rec weed at first, but after a couple years of participation and observation I see that way more people benefit from it. More medical patients and people that need it medically can get safe and affordable access to a wide range of products than at any time during the medical only days. It’s only the people that can’t make an untaxed fortune off it anymore that are complaining. So Moe can block me all he wants, he’s just mad someone challenged his opinion for once. I also don’t see why people hold him in such high regard, he got rich off patients and is crying cause he can’t continue to make money hand over fist in an unregulated and untaxed market. Sure the Rec program has its flaws, so did the medical program, but at least more people have access these days and the prices are at an all time low.

About a year and a half ago we were faced with loosing our space. We needed a forever home but didn't have time to find the perfect place. What we found was a building that needed ALOT of work. We all pulled together, volunteers and supporters alike and in just a few months we created a space that is now functioning as a rescue facility. Our place allows us to house over 20 dogs, to have a free roaming cattery, store food for our training wheels program, allow dogs to play off leash outside, do laundry, and so much more. What our new facility also is, is EXPENSIVE...BIG rent, HIGHER electric and heat bills. More animals means more medical, more transports, more staff BUT we NEVER give up. There are lives to be saved. There are people in the community that need help with caring for their beloved animals. Due to all of this and several incredibly expensive Training Wheels cases we are under water in medical bills. WE NEED YOUR HELP! We don't ever want to give up on our mission to save the unwanted, neglected and surrendered animals that need us, they need YOU. We have updated our go fund me from 17 months ago. PLEASE If you believe in what we do please take a moment to click the link in our bio and make a donation. No amount is too small. You can also go direct to our website at www.almosthomeli.org and make a donation to an animal in need. #supportus #donate #medicalbills #makeadiffernce #help

Lawmakers there passed a bill making anyone with a prescription for opioids eligible for its medical cannabis program.

With this move, Illinois joins a growing number of states turning to legal cannabis in the fight against painkiller addiction. "As we see the horrible damage inflicted by opioid use and misuse, it seems like a very low-cost and low-risk alternative," says state Sen. Don Harmon, a Democrat from Oak Park, Ill., and sponsor of the Senate version of the bill.

The Alternatives to Opioids Act would allow millions of patients to apply for temporary access to the state's existingmedical cannabis pilot program. The bill, which passed on May 31, is now awaiting Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner's signature. Though the bill has bipartisan support, marijuana advocates have some doubts about whether he'll sign it, given his past opposition to medical cannabis.

Lawmakers in several states have taken action to initiate or expand their medical marijuana programs in light of the opioid crisis." @npr

···
Although the United States government has made it difficult for the #scientific community to #research the #medicinal benefits of the cannabis plant, one state plans to learn more about the #therapeutic properties of pot on its own.
-
#Pennsylvania is determined to lead the nation in medical marijuana research. The state has already taken a bold leap, sticking its middle finger in the face of Uncle Sam’s bureaucratic labyrinth of red tape when it comes to examining Schedule I drugs, to become a driving force behind the discovery of how the cannabis plant can benefit the masses in the realm of safe and effective medicine.

It was back in March when Pennsylvania officials hashed out a program to allow medical schools throughout the state to get involved with marijuana research. This week, state powers awarded eight applicants, including the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, with the green light to learn more about the plant’s ability to treat various conditions.
-
So far, no other state has opened up shop for cannabis research in the way that Pennsylvania has. “It is important to note that Pennsylvania is the first and only state in the country to institute such a program, and we believe that the research that will be conducted by the School of Medicine in collaboration with UPMC will be of great importance in determining the safety, efficacy and effectiveness of medical cannabis products in treating specific diseases,” Pitt officials said.
-
Other schools awarded this high honor include Drexel University College of Medicine, Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, Penn State College of Medicine, Hershey, Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

-
Testifying before Congress last week, Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) acting administrator Robert Patterson claimed the latter. But when he prompted to provide evidence in support of the agency's position, he acknowledged that he could not.

His failure to substantiate this claim is unsurprising. That is because numerous peer-reviewed studies show that increased cannabis access is associated with declining rates of opioid use, abuse, hospitalizations, and mortality. Among patients enrolled in state-sanctioned medical marijuana access programs, participants' use of not only opioids, but also their use of numerous other prescription medications - such as anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs - declines significantly.
-
According to one recently published study, "National overall reductions in Medicare program and enrollee spending when states implemented medical marijuana laws were estimated to be $165.2 million per year." In Canada, where medical cannabis access is legal federally, recently published data reports that over half of trial subjects were able to cease their use of opioids within six-months of enrolling in Health Canada's cannabis access program.
-
One might expect the administrator of the nation's chief drug enforcement agency to be aware of at least some of this data. But Patterson's testimony proved otherwise.

Specifically, when asked by Florida Republican Matt Gaetz if the DEA was aware of the landmark 2017 National Academy of Sciences study finding, "There is conclusive or substantial evidence that cannabis [is] effective for the treatment for chronic pain," Patterson answered that he was not.

My kids love using the Reading Eggs program and choose it over watching YouTube during their allowed screen time. As a parent, I can feel confident knowing my kids are learning AND having fun at the same time. My youngest daughter has greatly improved in her reading and sight words since being introduced to the Reading Eggs program when she started school this year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you have children aged 2–13, I highly recommend you give Reading Eggs a try! I have a special FREE 5-week trial for you via the link in my bio.

Growing up in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Mary Tate remembers her mother preaching the value of education. “She is easily the strongest person I know,” Tate said of her mother, Chryel. “She raised us to believe that, with education, we could do whatever we wanted to.

Growing up in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Mary Tate remembers her mother preaching the value of education. “She is easily the strongest person I know,” Tate said of her mother, Chryel. “She raised us to believe that, with education, we could do whatever we wanted to. I really took that to heart.”⠀

Tate studied biology at Dartmouth, graduating in 2012, and then spent a year working with the nonprofit One Heart World-Wide, which implements maternal and neonatal mortality prevention programs for underserved populations around the world.⠀

Inspired by that experience, after enrolling at Harvard Medical School, Tate sought to create an organization that emulated One Heart’s community health worker model. She founded a group called Medical Students Offer Maternal Support, or MOMS, which enlists first-year med students to offer support to pregnant women through one of Boston’s community health centers.⠀

As a third-year student, Tate applied for a dual degree program with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. She was accepted and delayed her final year of medical school to earn a master’s degree in public health before returning to HMS. In 2017, Tate started the podcast “Dear Premed,” offering advice, interviews, and the latest medical news to pre-med students.⠀

A graduate of the Class of 2018, Tate is beginning an obstetrics and gynecology (OB-GYN) residency program in Chicago. She plans to continue to produce “Dear Premed” and to think about ways to reach out to underserved communities — whether through a similar podcast or through more traditional media — once her training concludes.⠀

“I’ll be getting to do the thing I’ve been dreaming about since I was a little girl. I’m over the moon, I’m so excited.” ⠀

I love that we take the time to actually go to the patients that so desperately need this care.
.
The medical team is constantly building the relationships with these families while their loved ones are in the midst of devastating pain, sickness, and difficulties. When I listened to the families tell their stories of how their lives have been impacted, I was amazed.
.
One family told me how skinny and sickly their little boy, Broye (the baby boy in this photo), used to be. Now, he is growing and becoming more and more healthy each day. The whole family is able to see how God has provided for them in their need—their joy is contagious.
.
You can tell that the Medical Outreach Program, the relationships they have formed, and God’s provision has literally transformed each of their lives. Life in Haiti is not easy and there are many difficulties, but it is evident that God is working in this country.” Caitlin, Mission of Hope summer intern

Thank you for all the prayers and support everyone has provided within these last several years.
It has been a long emotional journey, but I'm proud to say I'm one step closer to achieving my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I'm truly excited to embark this next chapter in my life.
The funny thing is, all I spoke about since high school was to get accepted into the nursing program, specifically at BCIT. Through the years there were moments when I would cry myself to sleep, because I couldn't understand why I wasn't in the program. I had my days of frustration knowing several of my friends were already nurses. Days I questioned, "is this the path for me?" Despite the MANY bumps on this journey I still kept persevering. A huge thank you goes towards the breast cancer and melanoma patients that I've encountered in the clinic, as they were a constant reminder to persevere regardless of the situation you are in.

I am proud of how much I've grown as a person and happy for all the friendships I've gained through this process. I somehow balanced a lifestyle of working full-time with a second job, attended evening classes, volunteered at JPOCSC, gym sessions 4x/week, dealt with 6 months of long distance with Kris and etc.

It's been 8 years since I graduated high school 😂 But I wouldn't change a thing. I've been privileged to work as a shift manager at Bootlegger from 2010-present day. I completed the Medical Office Assistant Program in 2013. Worked at Panorama Village Medical Clinic from 2013-2017, Fraser Valley Cataract and Laser in 2015, and I've had the honour of working as the Supervising MOA for Dr. Murabit at The Plastic Surgery Group from 2015-present day. (Hahaha the scrubs photo was from May 2017.) Honestly, never give up on your goals. Things may not go according to plan, but everything will fall into place eventually. #nursingstudent #acceptance #futurern #newchapter #countdown #greysanatomy #nursingacceptance #celebration #goals

It took nearly two years after the governor of Pennsylvania signed Act 16 into law to for officials to blaze a path for the state’s new medical marijuana program to actually open dispensaries and begin providing safe access to cannabis for qualified residents.

As of mid-July, the state has 28 dispensaries open to serve over 30,000 registered MMJ patients (and counting) with plans for the number of retail outlets to bloom to over 80 locations by the end of the year.

Originally, the program was hamstrung by a lack of legal cultivation facilities, but lately, the bottleneck to the program’s potential success has been technological, not agricultural.
-
On 4/20 in 2017, the Pennsylvania Department of Health awarded a $10.4 million contract to a Colorado-based firm by the name of MJ Freeway who was then tasked with tracking the entirety of the state’s cannabis-related commerce from “seed to sale”.
-
A cool ten mill may sound like a lot of money but it turns out that the less-qualified MJ Freeway won the bid by undercutting the rest of the competing firms by several million dollars.

They were granted this monumental task in the eye of a storm of problems for MJ Freeway that had already displayed a lack of proper security measures.
-
One attack in January of 2017 permanently deleted swaths of client's data stored in the cloud-based system. Another, in June, saw the company’s source code stolen and temporarily reposted, in full, on Reddit. In September a hacker was found shopping around stolen data from the MJ Freeway hubs in Washington state and Nevada. This prompted Nevada to cancel their contract with the firm just two years into a five-year contract. Then, in October, the company failed to meet state-mandated deadlines in Pennsylvania.

Still, Pennsylvania had chosen them and, unfortunately, not much has changed in the way the company handles its responsibilities.

Despite years of lower-than-expected demand in Illinois’ medical cannabis pilot program, growers around the state are expanding with the expectation that more residents will gain access to the drug; be it through patient applications, legislation or the election of a more weed-friendly governor. ⠀

The opioid bill sitting on Gov. Bruce Rauner’s desk would allow medical marijuana to be used in place of prescription painkillers. If the bill becomes law, a boost in demand is certain. The state’s prescription monitoring program tracked 1.5 million opioid prescriptions in the first quarter of 2017 — that equates to more than one opioid prescription for every 8.5 Illinois residents. ⠀

Since Illinois' marijuana dispensaries opened almost three years ago, more than 42,000 people have enrolled in the medical cannabis program. Click the link in our bio for the full story. (Erin Hooley / Chicago Tribune | @malarchy)

Los Angeles' new police chief is a $1.27 million beneficiary of a controversial city "retirement" program that is so costly and prone to abuse that other cities which tried it have since abandoned it.

Michael Moore, a 36-year department veteran who had been managing operations as assistant chief, was named in June to replace retiring Chief Charlie Beck.

But before that announcement, Moore had enrolled in a program called the Deferred Retirement Option Plan (DROP). DROP is a program that allows Los Angeles public safety employees to draw pension earnings without actually retiring. To do so, employees have to be at least 50 years old and commit to retiring within five years. Those pension payments go into a special account that they receive as a special lump sum when they retire. So in short: They get paid their salaries as usual during those five years of work. Then when they retire, they also get the five years of pension payments they would have received had they been retired for the five years they continued to work. For Moore, whose retirement lasted all of 30 days, that lump sum was $1.27 million.

The stated goal of the DROP program is to serve as an incentive for veterans to remain for a few more years to help pass their wisdom along to the younger folks. But what really happens is thoroughly predictable: Employees attempt to game the system with frequent medical leaves. A previous Los Angeles Times investigation found that the city had shelled out more than $220 million over nine years to people in the DROP program who had taken medical and disability leaves during these final five years. So they're earning both their salaries and their pensions and not working. Then when the retirement actually comes, they walk away with a big, fat bonus check. Los Angeles has spent more than $1.6 billion in extra pension payments since the program began in 2001.

I'm on meds I dont want to be on...but then if I dont take them, the withdrawals and intense pain is unbearable. Having to worry about getting healthy is my number 1 concern and goal atm. I've I'd 3 surgeries this year and 1 more to go. The next one will be ultimately serious and requires hospitalization. I have good insurance now, but it costs 500/month and all the meds I am on a month is probably half of that of not more.
I refuse to get on disability bc I know I can fight this. I know once I'm better, i will be stronger and my immunity will be superb. After this last surgery I will be kicking ass, I know it. And I cannot wait. I feel like the diseases have trapped me, but now I'm not letting them win. If you haven't seen my other posts, I have endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, fibromyalgia, and eilers danlos type 3 (hypermobility type). I also have serious depression and agoraphobia. Just ONE of these diseases can be paralyzing. I dont know how I'm still alive, honestly. I spend most of my days in bed. I hate it. I want to do all the things! And the light in me is starting to get brighter, I can feel it. Or thats just my heart problem...
Obviously, the finances are a huge problem. The medical bills from this year alone is currently past 30k. I've just been avoiding it all. I am going to try go shoot. Weve been working on 3d printing a characters gun from overwatch. Want to guess who? 😋
I have a campaign, which I've been posting on most social media platforms to raise funds that I need for the medical issues. Raising enough to go to Mayo clinic would be a dream and the closest thing to a cure for my illnesses. My rheumatologist at Mayo wants me to do a 3 week program to put the diseases into remission, in a way. That is the ultimate goal. If you can please read and share. I'm going to put the link in the bio.
Thank you so much for all of your support so far. I've been able to pay insurance. Some medical bills, and get all my medicines. I would be suffering and in pain probably going to the ER every other night and then just totally avoiding & ignoring costs

John Toombs developed a drug problem after he left the Army and was in a residential treatment program at the Murfreesboro Veterans Affairs center. In 2016, he killed himself on the VA campus. ⠀

Murfreesboro was, at the time, one of the lowest-rated VA medical centers in the country. It's part of a triangle of three VA centers — in Nashville, Memphis and Murfreesboro — that all had one star out of a possible five in the department's internal rating system. ⠀

The Veterans Affairs sent Former Navy Capt. Jennifer Vedral-Baron to Tennessee in 2016 to help turn the medical centers around. She says the VA in Nashville and Murfreesboro has better patient outcomes than local private care and can take advantage of affiliations with local medical schools like Vanderbilt. Since she has been in charge, the centers' ratings have gone up from one star to two stars. Follow the link in our bio for the full story. (Credit: @kristinakrug | Kristina Krug for NPR)

There are many milk banks around the country that help families who are in need of human milk donations. The largest in the world is located in our founder’s backyard—Mother’s Milk Bank in Austin.In honor of Breastfeeding Awareness Month, we wanted spotlight this incredible nonprofit. Melissa Fuentes, Program Coordinator at the Mother’s Milk Bank at Austin, was willing to take some time to chat with us to learn more about what they do and how their location is different from others across the country. Keep reading to find out about the science and how you can support the bank—even if pumping isn’t an option.
All babies in need of human milk require a prescription and a letter from a physician that states the need for a medical reason, explains Fuentes. For babies born prematurely in the hospital or with a medical condition, doctors will request an amount from the bank for their patient. There are 60,000 babies born each year in the U.S. weighing less than 3.5 pounds. Many of these babies (and their families) rely on donor human milk. When the request for donor milk is due to formula intolerance, there must be documented to proof that the family has tried different types and that the baby’s growth charts show a decline in weight. Because the milk bank depends entirely on volunteer donors for the milk supply, they must prioritize and provide milk first to babies with a medical need. Healthy infants can obtain donor milk only when the needs of babies with the most critical needs have been met. ( @birthofamama is honored to participate in this important donor milk campaign initiated by HELLO MY TRIBE @hellomytribe, connect with them for all things pregnancy, birth and motherhood community.....video by @revoluciondelateta ..one of my biggest post partum regrets was when I injured my hand after the birth of my second baby, I needed surgery, was shocked at the traumatic injury, was on antibiotics and away from my baby for 3 days....sadly I could no longer breastfeed....my sister who had just had twins and was literally gushing breastmilk

🌿
I realize how privileged and fortunate we are to be able to talk about #cannabis as a wellness product and as a medicine.
🌿
while I’m putting drops of #cbd oil into my coffee and advocating for medical cannabis research for cancer, there are people serving prison sentences, living with felonies on their records, and being arrested for nonviolent #marijuana possession.
🌿
according to the @drugpolicyalliance, "nearly 80% of people in federal prison and almost 60% in state prisons for drug offenses are black or latino,” with white people being 4x less likely to be arrested for drug possession. the war on drugs in america has always been rooted in racial discrimination, and changing/repairing this is a big part of the cannabis legalization equation.
🌿
if you care about cannabis law reform too, here are a few things we can do:
🌿
support @chuckschumer’s Marijuana Freedom & Opportunity Act. this bill would decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, provide small business loans to women and the socially/economically disadvantaged, create a grant program to lower the costs of expunging marijuana possession offenses, and invest $500 million into medical marijuana research.
🌿
support @corybooker’s Marijuana Justice Act. this would legalize marijuana at the federal level, expunge all federal marijuana-related offenses from criminal records, grant convicts the right to re-sentencing, cut prison/law enforcement funding from states that disproportionately arrest based on race, reinvest money into communities affected by the drug war, and set aside $500 million for job training and ex-convict re-entry programs.
🌿
how to support:
🌿
contact your local representatives and let them know you support these bills: @drugpolicyalliance has info on how to contact your elected officials on drugpolicy.org, under “take action.” @natlnorml has a list of action steps at norml.org/act.
🌿
follow @marijuanapolicyproject, @americansforsafeaccess and @natlnorml to stay educated.
🌿
I got into cannabis for the medical reasons and that will always be where my passion burns from, but this goes hand-in-hand.
🌿
love you guys. thanks for fighting the good fight. 💚

Executive master's graduate brings updated medical care to Puerto Rico⠀

Brown's executive master's program helped obstetrician and gynecologist Pedro Escobar-Rodriguez refine cancer care in his hometown of San Juan, Puerto Rico.⠀

_______________⠀

When Dr. Pedro Escobar-Rodriguez, 47, moved back to his hometown of San Juan in 2013 to take care of his sick father—after long OB-GYN stints at Northwestern University and the Cleveland Clinic—he was shocked to find out how much Puerto Rico lacked in terms of healthcare. “The technology was behind, the insurance landscape more challenging, and affordable medical choices limited,” he says. He wanted not only to practice medicine there but to attain a deep understanding of the systems he’d need to upgrade services on his native island. ⠀

So he applied and was accepted to the Executive Master’s Program in Healthcare Leadership within Brown’s School of Professional Studies. Students are working adults who come to campus only a few times over about an 18-month period; the rest of the work is done remotely. “I liked the program’s blend of finance and management with classes on policy, quality, and leadership,” says Escobar-Rodriguez, who chose it over postgraduate health-management programs at Harvard and Dartmouth. “It just felt more balanced.”⠀

But once he was in, things got crazy. He found himself working in oncological OB-GYN at San Jorge Children’s Hospital in San Juan, performing women’s cancer-related surgeries in the middle of last fall’s Hurricane Irma, during which he all but lived at the hospital because the power was out in his own home, where he resides with his wife and kids. (He also needed the Internet at work for his many Brown papers due.) “I was going nonstop from about 5 a.m. to 3 a.m.,” he recalls. “My program director at Brown said that I could take the year off, but I wanted to graduate with my own classmates.”⠀

We are excited to announce the launch of the Advocate Workforce Initiative at Advocate Christ Medical Center. This program, which already has roots at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center and Advocate Trinity Hospital, is expanding to Oak Lawn to provide even more opportunities for the unemployed and underserved.
With unemployment rates as high as 32 percent in some of the neighborhoods in Chicago, effective workforce development programs play a crucial role in preparing individuals for entry-middle skill opportunities within the healthcare sector. Funded by JPMorgan Chase & Co. and led by Advocate Health Care, the Advocate Workforce Initiative is an innovative and strategic program aimed at aligning the skill set of current job seekers with high-growth health care jobs in the Chicagoland area. Since its inception, we have served over 500 individuals and have placed over 200 in healthcare jobs.

Senator Kwame Raoul, Representative Kelly Burke, Representative Justin Slaughter, Mayor Sandra Bury and VP of Global Philanthropy at JP Morgan Chase, Owen Washburn, joined us at our kick-off celebration. Program graduates from Advocate Trinity Hospital were also in attendance, including Alicia Appleton who spoke to the crowd about her inspiring journey through Advocate Workforce Initiative.

This weekend we celebrate 16 year old Samson one of our Furever Fosters! When he first came to the rescue we were told he might not hold on for longer than a week. He came to us with no background information, but with horrible ear infections, deaf, almost completely blind, with signs of dementia, horrible hips, and clear signs that at some point he took a powerful kick to the chest. With medical care and heavy doses of love Samson has been thriving this last year!
Our Furever Foster program allows senior pugs with serious medical conditions that are not considered adoptable, stay in a loving home receiving top notch medical care. It costs a lot of money to keep this program running so we depend on all the senior pug lovers out there to help us keep going!
Want to help? Join our 2019 Calendar contest for as little as $10 where your pug may win a spot on our Calendar! (Link in bio)

A year ago he was surrendered to a local shelter because he was lethargic and his owner could not afford medical care so they opted for euthanasia. Fortunately, that shelter checked his microchip and called Purrfect Pals to say they had a cat of ours. We picked him up immediately and took him straight to the Veterinary Specialty Clinic to find out what was wrong. This poor guy was so anxious in the carrier, he scraped his nose raw and tore his feet up against the door trying to get out. At the VSC he was diagnosed with early chronic renal failure and received IV fluids, pain medication and antibiotics. He has been on prescription renal support food this past year and needs to remain on it. He has been stable and been otherwise healthy.

At 14 years old, Mr. Moustache has found the dramatic changes in his circumstances extremely upsetting. This sweet old man doesn’t appreciate being in a shelter instead of his home and absolutely hated being caged at the store adoption room. He is much happier in one of the open rooms at the shelter, where he enjoys sitting in the window in the light, or lying on his back in puddles of sun, luxuriating in the warmth. Unfortunately, being at the shelter seriously limits his exposure to potential adopters. Our staff and volunteers find this distinguished gentleman irresistible and give him as much attention as possible. He loves to rub against your legs at any opportunity, enjoys being petted and has the cutest pug nosed face and curmudgeonly charm.

Mr. Moustache qualifies for our Permanent Foster Program, which means Purrfect Pals would cover the cost of care related to his kidney issues at our shelter clinic in Arlington. Of, course, he is also available for outright adoption.

Finding homes for senior cats is always challenging. Finding homes for seniors with medical issues sometimes seems impossible. As a senior with a health issue, Mr. Moustache has 2 strikes against him, which is why he’s still in the shelter a full year after coming back to us. We remain hopeful there is someone out there who will give this little old guy the home he needs. Cont Comments

For the past few months LAURA, a gentle and beautifully tempered dog, has been waiting in the Bahamas for help. A dedicated local rescuer, Amanda, saw her in a neighbor’s backyard and took her in, posting a plea for a qualified rescue program in the US or Canada to intervene. We were contacted about this case and almost immediately decided she belonged in New York City, in our open arms and hopeful hearts.

LAURA, approximately 10 months, has gradually lost the use of her hind legs over the past 7 months. She doesn’t yet know it, but her life is about to change. Next week she will make her way from the Bahamas to the United States.The specialty care and rehabilitation she needs is not available on the island and we are grateful to be in the position to give her this via our #OneLuckyPup rescue, rehabilitation and adoption program.

As we arrange her flights we are also searching for a 🌟special needs foster in the NYC area.🌟 Laura is continent with a wonderful temperament. She has a high frustration threshold and her reactivity baseline is low. She is happy to play with her rope toys on her own, or lay at her people’s feet, or engage playfully with other dogs, whom she LOVES. We provide all care items and cover all costs, including medical treatment and rehabilitation.
.
Her ideal foster home should either be able to get her to and from 1-2 appointments each week for a few weeks in the beginning, or live in an area where we can pick her up and get her to and from with ease. Her rehab program will be on Manhattan’s Upper Eastside at the Animal Medical Center. Laura’s foster home, or foster to adopt, should have outdoor access.
.
🌟If you are able to help foster, please complete the foster application at www.mrbonesandco.org/foster For any additional questions, please email [email protected] PLEASE SHARE in the NY, NJ, CT and PA areas.🌟
.
❤️And so, Laura’s story begins…for everyone who was TATER TOT strong and CHIMBEY strong, we are asking you to now be LAURA strong!

Convicted weed felons are getting a fresh start. As reparations for the war on drugs, a number of felons who were imprisoned for charges pertaining to marijuana will reportedly have the opportunity to open legal weed businesses in the Oakland area, the National Post

The Oakland city council unanimously approved its new initiative, the Equity Permit Program, last month. The new program will reportedly issue 50 percent of all licenses for medical marijuana facilities to previous felons and residents of six neighborhoods that police excessively targeted for drug arrests, the Post reports. “Communities of colour have been negatively and disproportionately impacted by disparate enforcement of cannabis laws,” and ordinance filed by the Oakland city council reads.

Distributing medical marijuana has been legal in the state of California since 1996. weed in 2016. Under the new program, all felons and residents must undergo a rigorous application process, Greg Minor, assistant to Oakland’s city administrator, said.

Although the application process won’t open until later this year, the news is undoubtedly a big win for felons who spent several years behind bars. In the past, both Pusha T and John Legend have pushed for the release of felons who were locked up for simple possession or selling charges. “What’s important to me is keeping people who are coming home, home,” Pusha T said in previous PSA regarding California’s marijuana bill. “If ending prohibition on marijuana reduces recidivism, then let’s do it. @vibemagazine #authenticallyblackinthebay #theblackbayarea

Liesel was referred to Seattle Children's after a ping-pong ball-sized tumor was discovered in the middle of her brain. Two years later, she shares her story:
.
"So many questions were swirling around in my mind on my first visit to Seattle Children's. The good news was that the tumor was not cancerous. The not-so-good news was that it was located deep in my third ventricle - one of the most difficult areas to operate on.
.
Before my surgery, I was invited to be part of a research clinical trial that tested the safety of a drug called Tumor Paint. Though it had been tested for safety in adults, this was the first trial to evaluate it for safe use in children and teens.
.
When injected into the body, Tumor Paint binds to tumor cells. Viewed under a special light, the tumor cells glow. It's a tool that promises to help neurosurgeons remove only tumor tissue and preserve healthy tissue critical to brain function. Despite my mom's hesitancy about them injecting me with bright-green fluid, I was thrilled to be part of groundbreaking medical science.
.
Even though I knew this trial was testing Tumor Paint's safety - and not whether it could distinguish tumor cells from healthy tissue - it was cool to learn that my tumor was glowing after they took it out and put it under the special light! Results to date from the clinical trial I participated in show Tumor Paint is safe for kids. My hope is that it will eventually become standard care when treating brain tumors.
.
Three weeks after surgery, I was well enough to return home to Alaska. We stayed in close contact with my care team. Their support was a huge confidence booster and they gave me the determination I needed to stay on my path - and apply to Harvard's early-decision program. The day I received my acceptance email was one of the happiest of my life!
.
I started college last fall and my first year was so exciting! I feel deeply humbled, thankful to be alive and grateful to be working toward a degree in biomedical engineering. My dream is to bring lifesaving medical advances like Tumor Paint to kids around the world.“

New YouTube video for my series #careersinmedicine where I had the opportunity to chat with Catricia Tilford, MD a board certified Pediatrician about why she chose to enter into Pediatrics, switching specialties in residency from Psychiatry to Pediatrics and tips for all!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dr. Catricia Tilford is a board certified pediatrician who currently practices in south Florida. She completed her combined undergraduate/medical school education at an accelerated six year program in Kansas City, Missouri in 2009. Upon graduating from medical school she moved to Georgia to begin a psychiatry residency and after two years decided to transition back to her “first love” of pediatric medicine. She completed her pediatric residency in 2014 and afterwards moved to New York City to complete a unique one year fellowship in the only program offered for Pediatric Urgent Care medicine.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dr. Tilford has previously worked as a locum tenens physician, traveling to upstate New York to serve in underserved areas. Currently she works in pediatric urgent care centers in Florida. She is currently licensed to practice medicine in Florida, Missouri and Texas. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

A Good Samaritan brought Fawkes into the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter, which is where I found him and fell in love. I knew he had to join @okhumane ‘s adoption program, but I also knew he would need some major medical assistance. Fawkes likely had something wrapped around one of his back legs for an extended period of time. The veterinarian determined he would need to have his leg amputated. He came home with me last Friday to rest. He had his surgery yesterday (Monday) and he is back home with me now. I’m so grateful that OK Humane has a fund specifically dedicated to helping with these major medical cases. I will foster Fawkes through his recovery (likely upwards of a month), and then he will be available for adoption! .

Annelise Pace, a graduate student at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, is learning first-hand about the important role that genetic counseling plays in helping people understand complex medical information. While conducting genitourinary cancer research at MD Anderson, she met a patient who’d been diagnosed with a genetic disorder many years ago in his home country but had never been told anything about it. “When I saw him, I was able to explain the condition – familial adenomatous polyposis – to him and to explain that it was causing him to be at high risk for colon cancer,” Pace says. “I was also able to explain what that condition meant for his children and to help him figure out when it would be appropriate to order genetic testing for the children. He was so grateful to finally have this condition explained, because he’s been confused about it for so many years.” Each year, a handful of students are admitted to the school’s genetic counseling master’s degree program, which offers training for pediatric medical genetics, prenatal and cancer genetic counseling. “Genetics is expanding into all areas of medical care, such as cardiology and neurology,” says Claire Singletary, director of the genetic counseling master’s degree program. “One day personalized genetic medicine is probably going to be a part of how all our health is taken care of.” #cancer #cancerresearch #genes #genetics #mdanderson #houston #education #gradschool #hospital #endcancer

TODAAAY marks that magical day of 1,000 days with no alcohol! (Wha whaaaaaa!?)
I documented my most treasured accomplishments/milestones to show what removing anything negative from my life (thoughts, feelings, substances, behaviors) that prevented me from living the most vivacious, awe-inspiring, blissful life, did for me. Talk about an avalanche effect! 😍🦋 1. Completed a 200-hr Vinyasa yoga teacher training
2. Was accepted into Wellpark, a Naturopathic medical university in New Zealand
3. Moved across country by myself after 15 years in Texas and began from scratch (I love you, Ally)
4. Began, and am almost completed with, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner Program

6. Got of all Western medications and prescriptions for mental and physical health (healed the ailments that required them)
7. Healed a 5-year skin condition that caused discoloration on my entire body, so now it’s healthy, golden, and glowing
8. Completed the Pathways program to dig up and remove all emotional barriers that led to my mental demise
9. Was able to save money and take multiple trips across the United States and Canada to see people I love (all that money was used in booze and thangs before)
10. Fell in absolute love and adoration for myself and my brain, and no longer required others to be an influence that heavily burdened my true form and existence

Since Portland! (1 year, woohoo!)
1. Healed adrenals and thyroid after the overdose (in 2015) over 50% with meditation, holistic medical practitioners, and preventative nutrition
2. Healed a herniated L5-S1 disc injury, tilted pelvis, deviated tailbone, spinal column lining tear, and abdominal tear
3. Traveled to Canada for the first time and had an out of body, life-changing experience (not because of Justin Trudeaux)
4. Healed my mind and soul
5. Became closer to God
6. Became closer to my family
7. Became closer to myself

They are supporting permanent foster housing and holistic care for children abandoned or orphaned in South Africa, many of which are HIV+. One of the biggest projects for 2018 is funding a surgical center for an organization that provides treatment for victims of burning in Asia. They have already supported surgical costs, physical therapy, and a microfinance program for several years, but were recently able to purchase land on which to build the surgical center.

They support programs in Europe, Asia, and Latin America that provide support services to women working in the sex industry and seeking alternative employment. This support includes outreach, medical care, counseling services, housing, education scholarships and job training for those who choose to leave, and repatriation assistance.
They provide basic needs support for Iraqi refugees.
Education for children living below the poverty level in Asia, and education and holistic care for children in Africa.

The ... #Facebook sent a #cardiologist to several major U.S. hospitals to pitch a scheme that would combine a patient’s medical file with user data collected by the beleaguered #socialmedia giant, in order to “figure out which patients might need special care or treatment,” reports CNBC.

The program, which “never progressed passed the planning phase” according to Facebook, was put on pause after the #CambridgeAnalytica data harvesting scandal raised concerns over the company’s policies governing data collection and use.

Facebook’s pitch, according to two people who heard it and one who is familiar with the project, was to combine what a health system knows about its patients (such as: person has heart disease, is age 50, takes 2 medications and made 3 trips to the hospital this year) with what Facebook knows (such as: user is age 50, married with 3 kids, English isn’t a primary language, actively engages with the community by sending a lot of messages). –CNBC

Recently as last month, however, Facebook was discussing the program with several health organizations – including Stanford Medical School and American College of Cardiology.

The company says that the shared data would have personally identifiable information obscured – such as a patient’s name, and that they were thinking of using a technique known as “hashing” to match an individual’s medical data to their social media information.

Facebook said on Wednesday that as many as 87 million users were affected by the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and that “most” of their 2.2 billion users were exposed to potential data scraping by “malicious actors.” The project to share medical-related data was led by Freddy Abnousi, an interventional cardiologist whose role is described on LinkedIn as “leading top-secret projects.” The program operated out of Facebook’s “ #Building8,” an experimental projects group headed by #ReginaDugan prior to her October 2017 departure. 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾 #Technocracy #SurveillanceState #NannyState #BigBrother #1984 #DeleteFacebook

Most of the time, I’m head down, deep in the grind here, doing what it takes to keep things moving. Once in a while it hits me that my job is incredible. 30 years ago, I would never have thought this was possible. If you really love this plant, like I do, then there will always be a way to work for her. Lotta negativity out there lately about medical vs. rec vs. the “good ol days”. I was born in the right time and place to be fortunate enough to experience all of those. Might be hard for a lot of people to swallow, but weed shouldn’t be expensive, no one should be in jail over it, and those two things are what made it so profitable in the past, and that ain’t right. If you can do it well you can stay in the game. If you can’t, well, thanks for tryin out.

The story: “God makes his strongest soldiers go through the biggest battles, and thats what I'm currently going through with my family. 2 weeks ago, my mother, Minerva, of 39 years old, was detected with various Cancerous Fibromas in her Womb (matriz) and Ovaries (ovarios) ranging from small ones, to ones the size of a 6 month old baby. Due to the Fibromas in her Ovaries, mom currently has her Menstrual cycle 2-3 times a month, lasting more than 4-6 DAYS PER WEEK which has caused her as well to get Anemia. Being an immigrant, sets you aside from many "helpful programs" the state has to offer. If you do end up qualifying for programs that help with situations like these, the programs always have its pros and cons. In this situation, my mom qualified for a medical program, but sadly, the doctors placed my mother on a 2+ year waiting list to move forward with the surgery. Last week while speaking to the doctors, the best solution that was given to us was to remove both her Ovaries and Womb. Sadly, my mother and I don't have the funds and the resources to come up with the large amount of money to cover for both surgeries. Cancer is a very serious and scary illness, so as a social media influencer, I will be using my platform to help me fundraise money for my moms surgeries and medical expenses.”

I wanted to share my journey to getting into #PAschool to motivate others that might be feeling discouraged or disheartened. I firmly believe that if you really want something, dedication & hard work will get you there. These “failures” have been a blessing in disguise. These failures became learning opportunities to improve myself.

1️⃣ I was told by a #prehealth advisor in undergrad that she would personally congratulate me if I got accepted into a medical program because my GPA was so low. Looking back on this experience, it was exactly what young Aline needed to hear to get things figured out. Having said that, taking a quick glance through my undergrad transcript, she was absolutely right. W/my low GPA & no upward trend, I would have been surprised if I got into any programs. It took me years while working full time, to retake classes, bring my sGPA up, & learn how to efficiently & effectively study, as well as learning how to overcome test anxiety to get me prepared for PA school.

2️⃣ When I applied the first time, my application didn’t get pushed through because I didn’t meet the gen bio requirement. I retook classes before the next app cycle which ultimately made my science gpa stronger & better. It was also a great point to bring up during my interview & it showed that I was determined & focused.

3️⃣ I have taken the MCAT 2x. Both of which, I opted to not have my test scored because I had 0 confidence in myself. After the 2nd MCAT, I took a step back from healthcare & applied to random jobs because I felt completely lost. I had an awesome year working as a report reviewer, but I found myself feeling empty. I missed patient care. I returned back to the ED. I was able to work alongside healthcare professionals & see the differences / similarities between these roles which ultimately helped me decided which career I wanted to focus my time on.

I’m happy that people are talking about their failures and their journey with getting into their programs. Everyone’s journey & path is different but they all involve hard work, passion, & dedication. ✨ #FailForwardCampaign #PAstudent

I have to be honest I was scared to go back to school especially to a program that I felt was above my ability. It was rough. I had to sacrifice a lot. It ended up being everyday an average of 6-12 hours of studying. Even with all I have done in life this was truly one of the most difficult.

Due to the Fibromas in her Ovaries, mom currently has her Menstrual cycle 2-3 times a month, lasting more than 4-6 DAYS PER WEEK which has caused her as well to get Anemia. Being an immigrant, sets you aside from many "helpful programs" the state has to offer. If you do end up qualifying for programs that help with situations like these, the programs always have its pros and cons. In this situation, my mom qualified for a medical program, but sadly, the doctors placed my mother on a 2+ year waiting list to move forward with the surgery. Last week while speaking to the doctors, the best solution that was given to us was to remove both her Ovaries and Womb. Sadly, my mother and I don't have the funds and the resources to come up with the large amount of money to cover for both surgeries. Cancer is a very serious and scary illness, so as a social media influencer, I will be using my platform to help me fundraise money for my moms surgeries and medical expenses.”

I decided to go back to school in hopes of figuring out what I want to do with my future. I recently turned 21 and felt lost. I love doing nails but not a big fan of social media ( I know, that's weird) I like posting pics and sometimes creating videos and seeing how much you enjoy them by the feedback I receive. But I don’t like the pressure of always having to post that perfect pic. .
.
I entered a medical program which ended last week (small grad ceremony next week ☺️) Soon I'll start college in hopes of becoming a nurse. My road is long but exciting. .

Even though I haven't posted nail pics, I still work out of my home doing nails. I have so many pics but I won't flood your feed 😆

Thank you for your patience and continuous support 🙏🏻

We’re in our 10th year of growing under Oregon’s medical program, and the way things are looking this will be our last as we transition into the Recreational market. Our entire time growing we’ve always only done indoor so that we would never risk contaminating our space. This year we decided to finally give outdoor a try and we’ve had more fun than we could have imagined. It broke our hearts to reduce our garden to only keeping stock of our genetics and not flowering any rounds. Our little experiment with outdoor has given us just enough spark to fall in love with growing all over again. We are going to sorely miss the old medical scene, but that was gone long before we are saying our farewells. Regardless of what Recreational has to offer, as long as we find ourselves surrounded by our plants we know we’ll be alright. #ommp #outdoorgrow #biobizz #hightimes #worldreefers #oregongrown #weshouldsmoke #weedofig #highsociety #pnwstoners #fueledbythc #cannabiscommunity #recreationalmarijuana #cannabisculture

Nigro today announced the launch of the “Leave Behind” Naloxone Program, a strategy included in the expansion of HealingNYC, the citywide plan to combat the opioid epidemic. This new program increases naloxone distribution and training on how to use this lifesaving medication. Yearly, FDNY members treat approximately 5,000 suspected opioid overdose patients. Starting today, FDNY EMS personnel are trained and equipped to leave a personal naloxone kit with patients revived with naloxone. This kit will be offered to a patient during transport to the hospital, or at a scene of the overdose for patients who refuse further medical attention (RMA). Naloxone kits will also be available to friends and family members, if requested. “This Leave Behind Naloxone program provides patients and family members with an opportunity to access a naloxone kit during a suspected overdose, potentially preventing an opioid related death,” said Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. “Providing life-saving treatment, as well as education and instructions to prevent loss of life, is critical to the Department’s sworn mission of providing emergency pre-hospital care.” “We know that surviving a non-fatal overdose is one of the top risk factors for dying of overdose,” said Health Commissioner Dr. Mary T. Bassett. “By leaving behind naloxone with the friends and family of someone who survived an opioid overdose, EMS providers will provide a critical intervention and deliver naloxone to the people who need it most. I thank Commissioner Nigro and his team for adopting this program to save the lives of even more New Yorkers.” Each naloxone kit is stored within a blue pouch and contains naloxone intra-nasal spray, 4mg/0.1ml (2 doses), rubber gloves, face shield, alcohol wipes, literature about the risk of opioid overdose, recognition and rescue steps, naloxone use instructions, rehabilitation resources, and a blue prescription card. The Leave Behind program is funded though HealingNYC in coordination with NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. FDNY registered as a New York State Department of Health Opioid Overdose Prevention Program (OOPP) in April 2018.

I know that it's so weird to see me posting out of the blue at what's probably an unholy hour in other time zones, but I think it's best I get everything off my chest before moving forward.
I love editing, I really do. Editing is a good escape for me and helps me deal with stress just as writing does. However, given I'm in college and am an ROTC cadet now, there's no telling when my next edit will be. I might do spam posts every now and then, but I hope you guys aren't staying around just for the edits.
That being said, I want to explain how life is going here at home. I'm planning on double majoring in English and Japanese, and I'm participating in a theatre program on campus. I'm overall enjoying most of the classes I'm taking right now. On top of that, I've found some amazing friends in a group of mostly second-years. Since most of them are extroverts, they keep me busy and out of the house a lot, which both my parents and I appreciate (because my parents are convinced I had no real friends to hang out with in high school lol).
Recently, I was also able to have a serious conversation with my parents about talking to a therapist. It's easy for them to see that I have anxiety, but there's the concern about whether or not I have depression. The problem is, if I am clinically diagnosed with any mental illness whatsoever, I will be kicked out of the ROTC program, and that's supposed to be my sure way of helping my family deal with the stress of paying college tuition. My plan is to talk to a psychologist on campus so that way nothing will go into my medical record (yet).
With all this being said, I hope I can be forgiven for my inactivity. I'll be on to like and comment on posts, but that'll be about it until later this month when I find time to edit. Thanks for reading, and I hope you guys are doing just fine!💕

Umm excuse me, your 5 day WHAT?!
—>when your body isn’t busy digesting, it goes into cellular clean up mode ( #autophagy), flipping the switch to this innate recycling program; getting rid of parts that don’t serve the body’s needs and repurposing them for energy or new structures! Sooo basically I’m a new woman 😉
But what about food/energy?!
—>after a few days without external energy sources (food), your body starts using its stored energy (fat!) for fuel and ketone production
But.. just, why?
—>regulated appetite/hunger, hydration, decreased/erased sugar & carb dependency, fat burn, improved mental focus, more energy, cancer and brain disease prevention, better gut function, the. list. goes. on

introduced food back to the bod with nourishing @kettleandfire mushroom chicken bone broth with apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, basil, salt, turmeric & pepper first. then avocado, eggs, cooked veggies, pomegranate & bluebs! ate this happily and mindfully, making sure to chew and appreciate every bit 😋
hehe questions? anything keto/health related, I gotchu and I’m an open book! please never hesitate to ask away 😊 *now I didn’t do this willy-nilly, I’m mostly following a keto/fasting/refeeding protocol by the brilliant @naomiwhittel and her #therealskinnyonfat program.

A measure that could dramatically expand access to  #medical marijuana in #Illinois — making it available as an #opioid #painkiller replacement and easing the application process for all who qualify — is expected to become law on Tuesday.

The measure is a response to the #epidemic of #overdose deaths from #narcotics, which killed almost 2,000 people in the state in 2016 and an estimated 72,000 people nationwide last year. It would allow doctors to authorize medical marijuana for any patient who has or would qualify for a prescription for opioids like #OxyContin, #Percocet or #Vicodin.
-
But the measure is also noteworthy for removing some of the major restrictions on the medical marijuana program in Illinois.

No longer will any applicants have to be fingerprinted and undergo criminal background checks. And those who complete an online application with a doctor’s authorization will get a provisional registration to buy medical cannabis while they wait for state officials to make a final review of their request.
-
Rauner is scheduled to sign the bill Tuesday at the #Chicago Recovery Alliance, a nonprofit that distributes clean needles and overdose-reversing naloxone, and conducts other programs to help prevent deaths from #heroin overdose.

On Monday, a staff member at the alliance was setting up a stage for the signing.

Suzanne Carlberg-Racich, director of research for the alliance and assistant professor of public health at DePaul University, said she welcomes the new law as a way to prevent overdose deaths and provide a less addictive treatment for pain relief. “This is a great step in the right direction,” she said. “I’m pleased to see an alternative for pain management that doesn’t have any potential for a fatal overdose."

AIP GROUP COACHING // Did you know my #AIPBFF @angie.alt runs a program called SAD to AIP in SIX, focusing on helping people transition to AIP gently with tons of coaching and support?⠀

Not only has she helped thousands of people embark on their own elimination processes, but this program has been successfully used in two AIP medical studies 🔥 (and more to come in the future!). ⠀

Every year I watch Angie work tirelessly at improving this program and it is no surprise to hear of the breakthroughs members make when working with her and the SAD to AIP team.⠀

If you are struggling guiding yourself in the transition to AIP, I highly recommend you consider joining her January group. Enrollment closes Jan 3 and if you sign up by Dec 31, you save $50. She only runs these groups three times a year, so get on board while you can!⠀

About 3 years ago or so, after aimlessly wondering around, I finally decided I wanted to do something with my life. In my soul searching for a career, I landed on radiology. I got my stuff together, took my classes and received my associates in science, but was still rejected from the program. The ONE thing that kept me from getting in was that I didn't have work experience in the healthcare field. And the next best applicant did. Therefore, I was out and he or she was in.

I was crushed. So I settled on the next best thing and landed on Medical Assisting. A year into the program, we're now required to wear the school scrubs that say "Medical Assisting" on them. I was enjoying myself and the program, but knew deep down that it wasn't exactly what I wanted to wear. I wanted to wear the scrubs that said "Radiologic Science" on them. Throughout my the rest of my time doing medical assisting, I'd see other students around school wearing the scrubs I wanted. And I'd see the look on their faces when they wore them. They were proud. And rightfully so.

So I told myself that I'd use this as motivation. That I'd finish the Medical Assisting program, work somewhere suitable to get my healthcare experience, get my grades up, and not only re-apply to the Radiology program, but this time get in. Fast forward 3 years and here I am, doing just that. Today, for the very first time, I got to wear the scrubs I've always wanted to wear. The feeling of putting them on this morning was undescribable. I'll always wear them with pride. This is what I want. This is where I want to be. I still have a year and a half left to go in the program, but I'll always look down at that logo as a reminder that with time, effort, and good company, success is right around the corner.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health approved temporary changes to the state's medical marijuana program on Monday that will add #addiction to the list of qualifying conditions.

This new measure would allow people in recovery to apply for the program, which allows marijuana use for a treatment of a serious medical condition, as defined by the state's #Medical Marijuana Law.
-
#Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said this form of treatment won’t be the first and only option for people in recovery, but it could be an option for some. “It’s important to note that medical marijuana is not a substitute for proven treatments for opioid use disorder,” Levine said. “In Pennsylvania, medical marijuana will be available to patients if all other treatment fails, or if a physician recommends that it be used in conjunction with traditional therapies.” These new regulations take effect May 17 and would make Pennsylvania the only state to approve such a measure, according to a news release.
-
“By adding #opioid-use disorder as an approved medical condition under the program, we not only give physicians another tool for treatment of this devastating disease, but we allow for research to be conducted on medical marijuana’s effectiveness in treatment,” Dr. Levine said. “Only approved conditions under the law can be studied through our research program.”

Life can change in an instant and it can happen to anyone.

Help:
American Red Cross: This nonprofit has opened shelters across the state to help evacuees. They also have an online tool that people can use to register themselves as safe so loved ones can find them.

Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund: For 15 years, the foundation has offered aid to those affected by wildfires. Grants have gone to rebuilding homes, providing financial and mental health assistance and helping those affected to get medical treatment.

California Fire Foundation: This organization is on the ground distributing financial assistance to people who have lost everything in the fires. Through its emergency assistance program, firefighters distribute pre-paid gift cards to help those who need to purchase necessities like food, medicine and clothing.

Caring Choices: This nonprofit, which is in Chico, Calif., has turned into a hub for organizing volunteers to help those affected by the Camp Fire. Volunteers are assigned a variety of duties, including caring for displaced animals and, for those who are certified doctors or nurses, offering medical care.The organization has paused taking on new volunteers for the next few days but still encourages applications. It said it will need extra hands in the coming weeks. Caring Choices is also seeking monetary donations for its operations.

Enloe Medical Center: This 298-bed hospital is in Chico, the site of multiple evacuation centers for the Camp Fire. It is accepting donations for patients and families who have been displaced.

Entertainment Industry Foundation: This nonprofit, started by Hollywood stars, has a fund that helps firefighters and other emergency workers battling California wildfires. One of its beneficiaries is the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation, which provides hydration backpacks and night vision goggles for helicopter pilots. Another beneficiary provides meals for emergency workers and evacuees staying in shelters.
Humane Society of Ventura County: This nonprofit is accepting donations to help animals displaced by the Woolsey and Hill Fires. It is taking in domestic animals.

It was an honor to host @myuthealth “House Calls” as part of our focus to educate the city on a variety of health topics.

The program, “Your Aging Spine,” was presented by Dr. Mark Prasarn, Associate Professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth. This "House Call" offered advice on the causes of back pain and the warning signs of serious issues.

During the event, @abc13houston facilitated live web chats with attendees where online participants joined the conversation using #UTHealthHouseCalls.
Dr. Prasarn, who serves as the Spine Surgery Consultant for both the Houston Texans and the University of Houston, specializes in degenerative spine surgery, spine trauma and complex fractures. His insights coincided with efforts to bring awareness to important health issues and the incredible work being done by health care educators, providers and researchers at the university and its UT Physicians clinics.

During the evening, we were pleased to award two $5,000 scholarships to the UTHealth School of Public Health. Scholarship recipient Jessica Rodriguez was present for the event with her father. She recently completed her MBA and is currently in the Public Health PhD program.
After the program, an informative Q&A was moderated by Karen Kaplan, medical journalist and longtime member of the UTHealth community.

My name is Byron Jasper, and I am the current fellow in Community Health Leadership Development at Georgetown. In the next few weeks I will be launching the Comprehensive Mentoring Program for underrepresented minorities in the healthcare field. This program is being created to form a pipeline between the high school & undergraduate students in the DC area that have an interest in medicine in order to connect them with medical students, resident physicians, and attending physicians to gain experiences that help foster successful matriculation into medical school ultimately adding more diversity within the medical field.

I am currently looking for participants at all 5 levels that will be committed to giving their time to the program and those involved with the sole purpose of making all levels successful during their time in the program and thereafter. Each participant that is chosen will receive a stipend, based on current level, along with detailed mentoring from those that have been, or are currently, matriculating through the medical field. All participants are expected to be present for the majority of scheduled activities and actively involved with others during their time within the program, which will include guided learning through lectures, small group discussions, Q&A sessions, mock interviews, personal statement reviews, etc.

Tentative program dates are from March 30th - May 15th. Weekly schedules and guidelines of the program will be distributed at a later date. If you believe any of the students at your institution would be interested in participating in the program please contact me via email at [email protected], or on my cell phone at 985-791-7908 with the best contact information for those interested.
If there are any questions regarding the program or its components please don't hesitate to reach out to me. Lastly, if there is some one I could speak with directly or meet with to explain more about the program, please let me know that as well. Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear back from you soon.

Children's Hospital of #Philadelphia is seeking patients to participate in an observational study of medical cannabis.

The study will not provide marijuana products to participants. Researchers want to partner with families whose children have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder ( #ASD) and are already consuming medical cannabis from state-licensed dispensaries. Participation will be confidential, said Dr. Athena Zuppa, director of CHOP's Center for Clinical Pharmacology.

Participating families will be asked to undergo an hour-long interview in person or on the phone; provide information on the child's medical background; answer questions about their child's medical cannabis use and behaviors; and complete optional study materials, Zuppa said in a letter to prospective parents.
-
The hospital is pairing with Zelda Therapeutics, an Australian biopharmaceutical company, for what some advocates have described as the first major effort in the United States to study the effects of medical marijuana on children with autism.

Substantial anecdotal evidence shows that #cannabinoids, the active compounds in #medical marijuana, can help with some symptoms of #autism. Cannabis #advocates say cannabinoids help improve social interaction and control repetitive behavior, and don't cause the side effects associated with antipsychotic drugs often given to autistic children.
-
One of the aims of the study is to determine what parents in the region are giving their autistic children. Cannabidiol, known as #CBD, is a substance in marijuana that, unlike #THC, does not induce euphoria.

#Pennsylvania was the first state to include autism as a qualifying condition for the use of medical marijuana. Though mothers of autistic children led the push for the medical marijuana program in the state, there are few products available in Pennsylvania dispensaries that are predominantly CBD.

Groundbreaking from @informedtx - The Foundation for an Informed Texas (FIT) extends educational program dedicated to rural Texans to cable television, the first dedicated to education regarding medical #cannabis in #Texas. The issue of #medical cannabis is an important one to many rural Texans whose livelihoods depend on physical labor. Pain and inflammation are symptoms that are effectively treated by medical cannabis. The current medical regiment for these conditions are opioids and over-the-counter medication—both of which present dangerous side effects.

We were able to conduct a First Aid Training Program at Pelpola School which is situated 45kms away from Colombo and training was conducted by the medical volunteers (Jasmine, Pauline, Roberta, Siena and Saskia) for the students of age 15-16. And as an intiation we formed a First Aid Task Force for the school which we are planning for other schools in Western Province that has limited access. Also we appointed a teacher in charge Mrs.Durga to do continous follow up on the team formed. Also end of each term Projects Abroad will do follow up on the team to check the progress and specific incidents that has happened.
Principal thanked the Projects Abroad for doing such program as it was a need as the sports meet and divisional games are coming close by.
List of the names are in Sinhalese 🙈🙈 #volunteer #medical #projectsabroad #helpforacause #firstaid

"I made such great friends and went on adventures with them every day! Most of my fellow volunteers were in a Medical program, but some were also doing Animal Care like me! We all had the morning shift, which was great for being able to have friends to explore with and go out for lunch. Being vegan can be hard while traveling, but thankfully there were other volunteers with the same food choices as me which made it very convenient. I am so thankful for the wonderful opportunity I was given to make such great friends."⠀
