How can we aim to be GREAT?
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Wednesday, 30th October, 2013

I'm at a national pulmonary meeting in Chicago. I know you don't want the details of the lectures I've been to for the past 4 days, but there is one talk you would have enjoyed. Each year, for the opening session, a non-medical person is invited who can energize the attendees and provide some inspiration. I arrived the afternoon before the conference and treated myself to some ...

Please check out our articles that were posted during our recent technical difficulties. There's Thu\'s beautiful tribute to her mom on what would have been her 80th birthday.

Helping your children identify and cope with stress
written by Penelope Facher, LCSW, PhD
on Sunday, 20th October, 2013

From the moment we become parents, we do everything we can to protect our children both physically and emotionally. We teach them not to touch the hot stove, to look both ways before they cross the street, how to ask for help when they need it. As they get older, those physical risks may seem more under control, but then we embark on perhaps a more challenging, and certainly, ...

Happy Birthday, Ma!
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Sunday, 20th October, 2013

Today is a very important day for my family. My mother would have turned 80. She would have had a big birthday party with most of her children and grandchildren getting together to celebrate it with her.

written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Wednesday, 9th October, 2013

Last week, my son told me about an NPR program regarding the Mediterranean diet and the benefits of polyphenols in extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) that he listened to on his way home from work. Within an hour, Thu emailed me to say we needed to write about this NPR story she just heard. Having missed it myself, I looked at in online. I was more fascinated by all the info on EVOO ...

Seagull Century Ride and the Art of Long Distance Biking
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Sunday, 6th October, 2013

The above picture shows my husband David at mile 85 of the Seagull Century’s one hundred mile bike ride for charity. We dedicated our ride for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society again, as my mom was diagnosed with Lymphoma before she died last year.
