OpEd: Dispel the myths — Vaccines are vital

October 30, 2019

Alan KadishI read the article “Vaccination: the unending controversy” with great dismay. While healthcare professionals have labored painstakingly for years—and never harder than this last year—to stress the urgency of vaccinations, all it takes is a single gadfly in the ointment of common sense to plant doubt in the minds of the easily frightened or woefully uninformed. Even the headline of the piece demands redressing: Vaccinations are only “controversial” because of conspiracy theorists; their narrative is only “unending” because of those who profit, one way or another, by perpetuating myths.

Does Coffee Make You Anxious? Try These Caffeinated Drinks Instead

October 29, 2019

Stephen FerrandoBattling through coffee-induced anxiety just to get a boost of energy is a relatable struggle for many 9-to-5ers. Fully skipping your morning brew to avoid jitters is one obvious solution, but it's also not realistic for those who simultaneously feel completely drained without it. So, is there a happy caffeine medium between being overstimulated and wiped out?

October 25, 2019

Journal NewsSince Touro assumed control, New York Medical College has developed a program and curriculum that reflects its Jewish character. It’s not just in the special Jewish accommodations the school offers — such as an academic calendar built around the Jewish holidays and kosher food in the cafeteria — but also in the ways New York Medical College applies a uniquely Jewish lens to health sciences education.

The Challenge of Creating a Professional Culture

October 22, 2019

Ira Bedzow, Ph.D.Individualism is on the rise in America. It has always shaped the American ethos, giving Americans the values of personal autonomy, ambition, and liberty. Collectivist societies, on the other hand, emphasize social harmony and interdependence, which sometimes leads to the belief that the good of the group outweighs the needs of individuals. As such, individualism, and the values that it reinforces, allows for diversity within a community and an organization.

This is Why Gene Editing of Plants and Animals Needs to be Regulated

October 19, 2019

Stuart Newman, Ph.D.Gene editing of DNA inside living cells has many potential uses — from treating human disease to altering crops and livestock for agriculture — and is often considered the preeminent technological breakthrough of the new millennium. For example, in a move that has been widely criticized, Chinese researcher He Jiankui claims to have edited human babies to resist HIV by altering a gene called CCR5.

Helping Cancer Patients Navigate Clinical Trials

October 15, 2019

Mitchell S. Cairo, M.D.Clinical trials not only facilitate new drug development, but they can provide care to patients who desperately need more options, such as those with cancer. While trials may be listed online in readily accessible databases, such as those listed on clinicaltrials.govcancer.net and curesearch.org, it can be hard to know what to search for and how to make sense of the medical jargon of the listings. This creates a barrier between patients and clinical research. Not to mention that, unless their doctor is a researcher themselves, a doctor may not suggest clinical trials to their patients or even be fully aware of the clinical trials available.
