I am writing this on a flight home to LA from New York. I went to the very cold east coast for a Save the Children board meeting and Gala. I participated in three days of nonstop discussions (and celebration) of the humanitarian efforts of this amazing NGO (non governmental organization) for which I have…

I obviously cannot read every journal that comes out; I rely on JAMA to review important articles from disparate journals in the section “Clinical Trials Update” to stay as up to date as possible on non-gynecologic issues. This week, as I continued to recover from my own jet-lag induced insomnia, my attention was drawn to…

I quickly glanced at the first 2014 issue of JAMA before I returned to the office on January 2. And there was the first article to deal with weight… It was titled ” New obesity guidelines: promise and potential”. As we go back to our regular lives after the nutritional and alcohol excesses of the…

We’ve all been hearing more and more about HPV infections; that they cause cervical cancer, vaginal cancer, anal cancer, throat cancer, mouth cancer and venereal warts. I’ve written several articles about the need to immunize girls and boys with the HPV vaccine. The most common vaccine, Gardasil is given in 3 doses, it is a…

Imagine going through an entire pregnancy only to have your baby die at or within a month of birth. Nor do we expect to lose our lives during childbirth. Most American women would say that this is a tragic scenario that is far more likely to occur in developing countries. That’s correct, but a new…
