  • Global Health Rotation: Malnutrition

    I just returned from Uganda 5 days ago -- a harrowing 43 hour journey with a more than a few moments of thinking we might not ever get home, but I did. And I wanted to recount a day with a problem we as NP/PA students don't face much in the U.S.: malnutrition.  Bugabero is in the Manafwa District, a sort of rural suburb of the city we ...

  • Spring Breakers Beware

    As the universities and secondary schools are preparing for spring break, it is important that we are educated and educate our young patients on the dangers of ultraviolet exposure. I am going to focus this blog more specifically towards the use of tanning beds. As a dermatology specialist and a parent, I find it unconscionable that ...

  • Become the Eight Percent

    Was it losing weight? Spending more time with your family? Dragging your body to the gym? Reading more books? When's the last year you set a new year's resolution? And how far did you get before you broke it? And why are you so discouraged about trying again in 2013? We students in the medical field are required to study behavior change ...

  • Online Patient Reviews: Helpful or Harmful?

    The days of the Yellow Pages are long gone. When looking for a new medical provider, just like a restaurant, hairstylist or even a good handy man, we can simply jump onto one of the many popular search engines. Now, however, we not only have the world at our finger tips, we can also post reviews directly online for all to see. This includes ...

  • NPs & PAs Are Talking – Facelifts, Family Planning and On-Call Shifts

    On Facebook last week, we shared the Aesthetics Practice Today blog, ''Maintaining Facial Balance with Liquid Facelifts.'' Blogger Mina Grasso described the impressive effects of this treatment but warned clinicians to outline clear expectations to their patients. Facebook fan Shane commented, ''I do these all the time. Patients never, ever have ...

  • Confronting Death in Advance

    The other day, I came across an article about Val Patterson, a man who was diagnosed with terminal throat cancer. What made his story memorable was that before passing away on July 10, 2012, he wrote his own obituary. It was printed in his local newspaper and then throughout the world. Thousands of people have read it; hundreds have left comments ...

  • Medical Skin Needling in Aesthetics

    As providers we know the deeper we dive into the dermis, the greater the risk of potential side effects, sometimes including permanent adverse changes to the skin. I am a fan of options. There is no cookie-cutter treatment protocol we can follow with every patient. Treatments that allow us to treat the skin safely and are a good alternative to ...

  • The Power of Mineral Makeup

    Patients often ask me what makeup I recommend. That's not the easiest question to answer. The most important thing is that you find a makeup that works well for your skin. As we all know, this often involves experimentation. You win some, you lose some. There is no perfect makeup for everyone. But nothing is better than finding makeup that works ...

    As NPs & PAs approached the holiday weekend (and with any luck, a few days off), and editor Michelle Perron Pronsati and senior associate editor Jennifer Ford arrived at the AAPA IMPACT conference, our social networks, community pages and articles buzzed with thoughtful comments and many heated opinions. Always a controversial topic ...
