The Central San Joaquin Valley is where researchers come to paint often worst-case health scenarios for the rest of the nation. But when it comes to triggering remedies, along with the necessary political, fiscal and educational muscle, there are few who’ll take leadership. A flood of recent surveys and studies has reminded Valley residents  that the air they breathe, the water they consume and the neighborhoods they call home are among the most befouled in the state and nation.

When we were in driver's education class, we were taught to always keep alert, to look ahead at where we were going and to regularly check our side and rear view mirrors. Each field of vision is necessary so that we drive where we need to go, and avoid crashes with other drivers.

...well, almost.

I read a fascinating article about a procedure that was done recently at Wexner Medical Center; Ohio Sate University. Physicians implanted a microchip into the brain of a paralyzed patient and connected the chip by way of a port to a computer. The software program was developed to "decode" messages from the brain and then send the messages to strips of electrodes attached to areas on the patient in hopes of stimulating muscle fibers to cause movement...whoa!

It gives me a great deal of pleasure to announce two very important accreditations for Community Regional’s Echo Lab in our Non-Invasive Cardiology Department.

On April 9, we received news that the lab was granted a three-year term of accreditation in the areas of adult stress, adult transesophageal and adult transthoracic echocardiography by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC). And, just a few days later, the department was granted a three-year accreditation for pediatric transthoracic echocardiography and fetal echocardiography as well!
