UNLV Medicine to stop curbside COVID-19 testing

frank lampard

UNLV is closing its curbside COVID-19 testing site because of intense summertime heat and because the Nevada National Guard will no longer be deployed to assist with the operation.

The last patients were tested Friday morning, said Dr. Michael Gardner, vice dean of clinical affairs for the UNLV School of Medicine.

UNLV started offering free nasal swab testing March 23 at its Shadow Lane campus in central Las Vegas. More than 18,000 people have been tested since then, according to a Thursday announcement on the university’s website.

It was the longest continuously operating COVID-19 testing site in Nevada and received significant support from the Nevada National Guard, the university said.

“With the removal of the Nevada National Guard, UNLV Medicine personnel will be reassigned to their respective clinics to manage increased patient visits,” according to the announcement. “The health care providers will continue to serve remaining patients who are awaiting

InventHelp Inventor Develops Swim Fitness System for Small Pools (LST-1050)

frank lampard

PITTSBURGH, July 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Often a swimmer’s workout is limited by the small size of the pool that’s available. Fortunately, an inventor from Los Angeles, Calif., has conceived of a system that allows swimmers to remain in a fixed location in the water while taking swim strokes.

He developed SWIM FREE to enable swimmers to practice strokes or do a cardiovascular workout in a limited amount of pool space. As such, it provides resistance to prevent forward movement allowing them to “swim in place.” Therefore, it eliminates the need for a large pool for distance swimming. Also, this convenient and effective system is affordably priced. Users will appreciate how lightweight, portable and easy to use it is as well. Another appealing feature is its versatility for use in different-sized pools.

The inventor’s personal experience inspired the idea. “I wanted to be able

The dentist will see you now. Here’s what to expect during the time of COVID-19

frank lampard

A trip to the dentist’s office might look different amid the coronavirus pandemic — but experts say that’s no reason to miss your check-up.

According to Dr. Chad Gehani, the president of the American Dental Association (ADA), dental health is “vital to overall health.”

“Many times people do not comprehend that teeth are attached to the body, to the bone and head, and that it is as important to take care of their teeth as their organs,” he said. “Most of the dental diseases are preventable and, if detected in an early stage, they are very inexpensive and they are very easily treatable. If you let the oral condition go for too long a period of time, it can become more complicated later on.”



Gehani said that he himself was experiencing some negative effects of not having been able to go to the dentist for

To begin addressing racial bias in medicine, start with the skin

frank lampard

“Until the color of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes.” — Bob Marley, “War”

Racial inequity in the U.S. health system is, in many ways, far deadlier than police violence.

The failures of the health care industry to appropriately care for Black patients are well-documented, resulting in the lowest life expectancy of any major group in the U.S. In addition to poverty, lack of access to care, and inadequate treatment, people of color are also dying due to bias in medical education, clinicians’ insufficient exam skills, and lack of appropriate information tools. The medical community needs to wake up and start fixing the way we recruit, train, and equip clinicians to reverse the trend of Black Americans dying too early and too often.


My specialty, dermatology, is a prime example of the kinds of changes we need.

The University of Virginia’s Center for Engineering in Medicine now supports faculty fellowships that embed engineering faculty members within the UVA School of Medicine.

Sustained, firsthand observation of the clinical environment and regular conversations with clinical colleagues spark ideas for new ways to merge engineering, technology and medicine and solve complex health care challenges. Engineers and clinicians make progress in ways that would not be possible if they were not working in an immersive collaboration; researchers can also move ideas from concept to clinical translation more quickly, all of which is great news for patients.

“Faculty Fellowships are a unique opportunity to allow individual faculty to take a deep dive into a

Sask. expands COVID-19 wage supplement program for integrated care facility workers

frank lampard

The provincial government is allowing more people to apply for a program designed to help employees working with vulnerable people during COVID-19.

At the start of the pandemic, the province announced a $400 per month wage top-up for workers in seniors’ facilities, licensed daycares and shelters.

Originally, the program would only provide the money if workers earned less than $2,500 per month and less than $24 per hour. The government later removed the income threshold for workers at certain facilities.

On Thursday, it removed the threshold for workers at integrated care facilities that provide both short-term and long-term health care.

“Our government wants to ensure that through this program we are helping workers who are caring for some of our most vulnerable,” said Finance Minister Donna Harpauer in a news release Thursday.

“Often, family members help support their loved ones in long-term care in these facilities, but visitation restrictions due

frank lampard

In the two weeks since Rihanna announced Fenty Skin on Instagram, the post has been viewed more than four million times. Comments like “MY QUEEN” and “My skin ain’t ready for this gift” abounded, and when I tried to log on to the brand’s website ahead of the line’s July 31 launch, there was so much traffic I had to wait to get in.

But while Fenty Beauty fans are undoubtedly excited about the launch, the question remains: What do skin pros have to say about the line’s first three products? Spoiler alert: They live up to the hype.

Fenty Skin’s initial rollout includes a gentle cleanser, a toner-serum hybrid, and an SPF moisturizer—three basic products that make up a solid skin-care routine. Rihanna has been outspoken about the fact that the line is “for everyone,” regardless of their age, gender, or skin situation. “Fenty Skin is everything I

Head and neck cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths worldwide, and squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) account for the majority of these cases. In a new study, based on preclinical research and published July 29, 2020 in Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center report that an investigational drug candidate called tipifarnib showed promise in treating HNSCC tumors with mutations in the HRAS gene.

The findings shed new light on the HRAS gene, a member of the RAS family of genes that produce proteins that regulate a variety of cellular processes, including growth, movement and differentiation. In 4 to 8 percent of HNSCC tumors, the HRAS gene is mutated.

“This preclinical research has the potential to extend to the entire HNSCC patient community,
