Weather Gone Wild



















As we watched in horror, the media coverage of the mass destruction left in areas devastated by Hurricane's Harvey and Irma, our hearts are aligned with the victims, their families and friends. During this time, our country can demonstrate to the world what compassion, empathy, and altruism mean to those whose lives have been affected by these catastrophic weather phenomenon. Our special thanks go out to the civil servants and volunteers that are working endlessly to save lives, provide food, shelter, and hope to those affected by these monumental hurricanes.

World Suicide Prevention Day

15 years ago, World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD), was created to increase awareness on the topic.  On September 10, 2015,  a global commitment and movement orchestrated with various platforms, activities, and events will commence across the Earth highlighting ways to help recognize the individual that may be suicidal and highlight programs/techniques that can be helpful in preventing suicides. 






























Anaphylaxis from a Wasp Sting


















Anaphylaxis is a critical allergic response of rapid onset involving many body systems. Anaphylaxis is started when mast cells dies and releases its contents. This reaction is typically an immunologic response to the death of the mast cells, but sometimes a non-immunologic mechanism may explain the response.
