Ivanhoe People Power Awards 2014!

     As I said last week, we love all 360 of our stories but some stand out above others for how much they inspire us so we have gotten it down to 9 awards for the whole year. Click here and watch all of them if you want to feel good today that these people are out there doing so much to help others!

     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:

  •      Dr Amita Patnaik at South Texas Accelerated Research Therapeutics is conducting a clinical trial to see how keytruda affects advanced melanoma. The results have been so good that it is now the FDA standard of care.
  •      Dr Vicki Wheelock at UC Davis treats patients with Huntington’s disease and is excited about a new trial in humans coming up. It will inject special bone marrow stem cells directly into their brains. Professor Jan Nolta and her team have engineered them to be a growth factor, BDNF.
  •      Dr John Petersen at Borland-Groover Clinic and Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville, is treating gastroparesis by inserting a pacemaker for the stomach. He says it is a “massive breakthrough for the people who just had nothing to look forward to.”

     Our first special report is about a “Smart House for Seniors” that is being designed to help them live longer independently. An AARP report says 9 out of 10 people over 65 would like to stay in their own homes but I am here to tell you that my mother was far happier with the attention and companionship she found at the Mayflower Retirement Center once she moved to Florida to be close to my sister and me. It is a matter of finding a place that is run by people with as much sense as David McGuffin!

     In case you missed them, you may want to check our past reports, Premium Content in Archives Premium Content in ArchivesTiny Needle Treatment for Two Major Eye Diseases Premium Content in ArchivesTriclosan: The 'Dirty' Side of Soap. Premium Content in the Archives may be purchased for as little as $9 for 24-hour, unlimited access. If you would like to access Premium Content for the first time click here.

     Our final two special reports this week include “6 Caffeine-Free Ways to Boost Energy” and “Dangers of Sleep Apnea in Women” so check them out also.

And there's more where that came from...
