BULLETIN: It's NOT Too Late - Get Your Flu Shot NOW!
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Saturday, 11th January, 2020

As you can see by the map, the flu season is up and running all across the United States.  It’s an unusual season, in that influenza B, which is usually more common later in the season, is starting up strong.  It is usually more common in children, but that’s the only one I’ve seen so far in my office in adults.  The high dose flu vaccine that is given to seniors ...

on Sunday, 29th December, 2019

It’s 5pm on a Monday and I’m sitting in a conference room with attending physicians and residents, listening to a mandated “Faculty Development” lecture on how to give proper feedback.  I hear words thrown around, such as “timely feedback,” the “feedback sandwich,” “adult learners,” “professionalism,” “communication,” and “learning goals.”  ...

written by Linda J. McKibben, MD, DrPH, FAAP, FACPM
on Tuesday, 24th December, 2019

In my 2017 LadyDocs Corner Cafe blog, “Let’s Talk About Racism,” I introduced my first experiences grappling with racism.

Grief and the Holidays
written by Julie Bindeman, PsyD
on Thursday, 12th December, 2019

To be human means to experience loss. With loss comes feelings of grief, as loss and love go hand and hand. We mourn what we once cared about. As the holidays come upon us, feelings of loss can be confusing during what is typically thought of as a happy time of year. The framework of the holidays can be seen as a parallel to loss: the timing in the winter, when the foliage ...

Trauma and the Holidays
written by Tali Elitzur, LCPC
on Wednesday, 4th December, 2019

  The holiday season can be a time for gratitude, peace, love, and joy. It can also be a time of stress, pressure, intense trigger responses, depression, and anxiety. For those who are going through or have experienced trauma, the latter is more likely. Survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence or harassment, incest, stalking, and bullying often dread the holiday season ...

written by Emily Cook, PhD, LCMFT
on Sunday, 24th November, 2019

As a marriage and family therapist, I was asked to speak at a recent Lady Docs gathering about family interactions that play a prominent role during this holiday season.  Feel free to journal as the group did last week as we explore family relationships. As therapists, we treat people as part of a family system and we focus on personal transformation as the agent of change ...

Food as Medicine
written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Thursday, 7th November, 2019

I had the pleasure of returning to my alma mater in the Bronx - Montefiore Hospital - where I did some of my clerkships in medical school, and the majority of the clinical work during my pulmonary fellowship.  It’s been renovated so much in the 31 years since I’ve been there that the only building I recognized was the concrete garage across the street. This conference, ...

written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Sunday, 27th October, 2019

There are always things that need to be done.  But, sometimes peace and quiet in nature is just what the doctor ordered.   Our [LINK: /article/-is-the-key-to-healthy-aging/#sthash.FJGY8uoq.dpbs] last exercise post was about the benefits of exercise - 150 minutes of mild to moderate exercise each week.  Prior posts touted the importance of walking for [LINK: /article/exercises-for-osteopenia-and-osteoporosis-prevention--part-3/#sthash.iAlESQOj.dpbs] osteoporosis ...
