written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Wednesday, 30th October, 2013

I'm at a national pulmonary meeting in Chicago. I know you don't want the details of the lectures I've been to for the past 4 days, but there is one talk you would have enjoyed. Each year, for the opening session, a non-medical person is invited who can energize the attendees and provide some inspiration. I arrived the afternoon before the conference and treated myself to ...

Helping your children identify and cope with stress
written by Penelope Facher, LCSW, PhD
on Sunday, 20th October, 2013

From the moment we become parents, we do everything we can to protect our children both physically and emotionally.

on Sunday, 20th October, 2013

Today is a very important day for my family.  My mother would have turned 80.  She would have had a big birthday party with most of her children and grandchildren getting together to celebrate it with her.  Instead, we took my father and two brothers and their families to dinner tonight to think of our mom.  For years, I had thought it’s a “strange” part of the ...

The above picture shows my husband David at mile 85 of the Seagull Century’s one hundred mile bike ride for charity.  We dedicated our ride for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society again, as my mom was diagnosed with Lymphoma before she died last year.  This last stop was the “grand finale” rest stop where the riders were served different kinds of pie and vanilla ice cream.  ...
