  • The ABCs of Hepatitis

    Rubin Bahuva, MD, Gastroenterologist, Deaconess Clinic
     
    You’ve likely heard of hepatitis, and you may’ve even heard that some types of hepatitis are identified by letters A, B, & C. I’m glad to be writing about this, as so many people don’t know enough about hepatitis. It’s a serious issue, as hepatitis can cause serious illness and severe liver damage. Hepatitis C in particular is of concern, as more than 3 million Americans are infected—mostly “Baby Boomers.” Hepatitis C is actually the most common reason people need a liver transplant.

  • Don’t Be Bugged by Bugs

    Rebecca Hopper, MD Internal Medicine & Pediatrics, Deaconess Clinic
     
    Summer is a time when most of us head for the outdoors--even if it’s just our own backyard. The season provides a time to get more exercise, eat fresh produce, and perhaps most importantly lower our stress by enjoying nature.

  • Experiencing Community Trauma

    We are experiencing historic and stressful times, as we are faced with a pandemic, deaths, racism, rioting, and an ever widening troublesome rip in the fabric of our community. These events can create uncertainty and a feeling of being overwhelmed and out-of-control.
