What's New with Flu (2017-18)
written by Pamela Prindle, R.N., BSN, CNOR
on Thursday, 21st September, 2017

The autumn months bring temperature changes and remind us of the influenza (flu) season that will occur soon. Influenza is a highly infectious virus that causes 20,000 preventable deaths and 200,000 hospitalizations annually. The seemingly low protection (45%) of last year’s flu vaccine spells uncertainty for most of us when deciding to vaccinate for flu this year; however, ...

The Global Meaning of Hurricanes
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Friday, 8th September, 2017

This afternoon I delivered a beautiful baby girl. Her grandmother and mother did not cry as much as her father. He literally was sobbing and could not stop. She was their second daughter. Her five years old sister’s photo was by her mother’s bedside, showing a stunningly photogenic girl, a perfect blend between her African American mother and Caucasian father. ...

Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause
written by Cara C. Simmonds, MD, FACOG
on Sunday, 3rd September, 2017

Many women experience discomfort in the peri- and post-menopausal period. The complaints vary but may include vaginal dryness and irritation, painful intercourse, lack of sensation with intercourse, leaking of urine, urinary urgency, recurrent urinary and vaginal infections, and even vaginal bleeding. The changes that occur are due to declining estrogen levels and estrogen receptor ...

Our "Cute" Life: The Things We Leave Behind
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Saturday, 26th August, 2017

My older sister has recently moved to New Zealand. The weeks before she left were so hectic for her and her husband, as they realized they could not bring everything from their house in Fairfax, Virginia, with them. What items would be important to you from the more than twenty years you lived in a certain city? Will you make mistakes leaving behind or giving away objects that ...

Tips for the Eclipse
written by Holly M. Gross, M.D.
on Saturday, 19th August, 2017

The Great American Solar Eclipse will be darkening our skies on August 21, 2017. The area of totality is in a narrow strip of the country from Oregon to South Carolina, but those of us in other parts of the country will at least see a partial solar eclipse, meaning the moon never quite completely blocks the sun. The last time that happened in the United States was 1918. ...

Into the Wild...But Know Your Limits!
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Friday, 11th August, 2017

A few months ago, Dr. Seidelman and her husband went to Peru and wrote a blog about her amazing experience. Since Peru had been on my bucket list for a very long time, I urged my husband to consider going to Peru for our summer vacation. David went hiking and camping in Peru up the entire “old Inca trail” a long time ago when he had finished a two year stint as ...

A Walk in the Wild: My Adventure with Wilderness Medicine
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Saturday, 15th July, 2017

I dropped out of my girl scout troop in Vietnam at around nine years old. I had barely started the girl scout journey a few weeks before. It was a steamy hot summer day in Saigon, and our troop had to wait in the sun for the President of South Vietnam to visit all the boy and girl scout troops in the biggest park of the city. Even as a young girl, I felt the injustice of having ...

Let's Talk About Racism
written by Linda J. McKibben, MD, DrPH, FAAP, FACPM
on Wednesday, 28th June, 2017

I imagine the relatively easy part for most doctors of my generation of baby-boomers is to accept racism as real and persistent. We were never exactly encouraged to share our personal experiences with racism in medical school. My class of 180 students at the Medical College of Georgia had about 30% women and enough African-Americans to count on one, maybe two hands. The metaphor ...

The War Zone We Created: Jump Before the Water Reaches Your Ankles!
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Saturday, 17th June, 2017

Before reading further, please be advised that this blog represents my view, as I am not speaking for all the lady docs writers. The beauty of our friendship is the recognition that our political views might be very different but regardless, we work with each other toward a common goal to better our community. Where were you a few days ago when the Republican congressmen ...

Updates on Hormone Therapy in Menopause
written by Marilyn Jerome, M.D., FACOG
on Wednesday, 14th June, 2017

As a practicing ob-gyn for the last 35 years, I have certainly seen the “hormone wars.” As is true in so many subjects in medicine, studies are presented that demonstrate a significant benefit of a drug or supplement, only to be challenged months or years later with the opposite findings, leading to confusion and angst, and concerns about the harm that this intervention ...
