Thanksgiving, a Time for Gratitude
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Wednesday, 27th November, 2013

on Tuesday, 19th November, 2013

Do you suffer from gritty, burning, red eyes? Do they feel dry, or sometimes excessively watery? Then you’re not alone.

Heart Disease in Women
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Saturday, 9th November, 2013

Why, you might ask, should there be a symposium on heart disease in women? When we talk about pregnancy-related issues, uterine fibroids, and other 'female issues', it's obvious why discussions need to focus on females, but why would that be true for heart disease?

Moving Beyond the Need to be Right: Turning Conflict into Collaboration
written by Penelope Facher, LCSW, PhD
on Thursday, 7th November, 2013

Over the last 20 years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with individuals, couples, families and businesses on developing and utilizing effective conflict resolution strategies.

written by Cynthia King, M.D., MPH

I am always searching for healthy snacks for my kids. That elusive food easy to take on the road, truly healthy, and which they BOTH love -- and doesn’t take an hour to make. In my search for this recipe I’ve stumbled upon Rejuvenator Bars, which I adore, and my 4 year old son gobbles up. It is a great snack (especially pre- and post-work out) that it has spoiled ...
