DC Central Kitchen -- ''We fight hunger differently''
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Sunday, 21st July, 2019

In the past, Lady Docs has volunteered as a group at DC Central Kitchen. Yesterday, I’m proud to say, we had the most volunteers they remember seeing there. During the week, graduates of their Culinary Job Training Program, who are now paid employees, prepare the food. On the weekends, generous donors, like Dr. Chitra Rajagopal, sponsor the day, and can then bring in 35 volunteers ...

Measles in 2019, or How Our Success Led to Our Downfall
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Wednesday, 19th June, 2019

For decades, in the United States, there has been very little talk about measles - for good reason. Thanks to the effectiveness of the measles vaccine that was initially available in 1963, and improved upon in 1968, rates of measles steadily fell until an outbreak in 1989. After that, the recommendation was updated to require two doses of the vaccine instead of one, and rates ...

written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Sunday, 2nd June, 2019

“ They say that youth is wasted on the young.  Now, as I approach my final days, I realize that health is wasted on the healthy, and life is wasted on the living.  I never understood that until now, as I prepare in earnest to leave this life.” Of all the powerful statements in Julie Yip William’s moving memoir, the above quote summarized best how she realized wisdom ...

Psychiatry Is Like Retail
written by Anne Sagalyn, M.D.
on Thursday, 16th May, 2019

Psychiatry, like retail, has busy seasons. Unlike retail, psychiatry’s hectic periods occur secondary to fluctuations in seasonal light exposure, rather than during major holidays. For years, I treated patients for worsening, or new onset depression, around Halloween, October 31.  Some of this was Seasonal Affective Disorder, some simply the effects of diminishing light ...

The Marriage Counseling Workbook: 8 Steps to a Strong and Lasting Relationship
written by Emily Cook, PhD, LCMFT
on Tuesday, 16th April, 2019

Although my book was published almost exactly one year ago, I’ve been surprisingly reluctant to publicize it since. The overlap of writing the book with my postpartum months after the birth of my second child amazes me. Ethan was born in June, I finished writing in December, and the book was in print by the following March. I used to tell people, “Well, I’m already up ...

What's New in the World of Colon Cancer Screening?
written by Julia Korenman, M.D.
on Sunday, 7th April, 2019

March was colon cancer awareness month. I am a little late in my blog this year but want to give a shout out to getting screened – you can prevent or detect this cancer early with a colonoscopy. Colon cancer is the 2nd most common cause of cancer death in the US, with approximately 50,000 people expected to die from colon cancer this year. Colon cancer deaths have dropped ...
