Oglala Lakota physician, Donald Warne, MD, MPH: "[F]or many people it is tempting to get selfish about our career opportunities… But in truth, what an honor to do this. This really is sacred work. The ability to impact lives positively, the ability save lives….And from a Lakota perspective, we’re supposed to think about others, we’re supposed to think about the greater needs of our communities and our families."

"Never forget where you come from." those words, coupled with early role models who shared his identity as a Native physician, continue to inform the career of Oglala Lakota physician, Donald Warne, MD, MPH.

Intermittent Fasting Beneficial for Some Cardiac Patients

2000 patients who underwent cardiac catheterization were surveyed 2013-2015 with followup 4.5 years later. Routine fasters had greater survival rate than those who did not fast, even after correcting for various factors. https://www.technologynetworks.com/applied-sciences/news/intermittent-fasting-beneficial-for-some-cardiac-patients-327338?utm_campaign=NEWSLETTER_TN_Breaking%20Science%20News&utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=79533470&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-9AQ8JFKk-Yp8cacyl4HjpdKG8Zkr8AmdmAh2q7a1dc5T7xfWk8up3ghZLIXbyS8zP0uOoSWscnF23XuR6sD13FObnCBQ&_hsmi=79533470

Whilst intermittent fasting may sound like another dieting craze, the practice of routinely not eating and drinking for short periods of time has shown again to lead to potentially better health outcomes.

Medical school at the Medical College of Georgia will undergo career-focused redesign - including primary care career option, academic pathway, advanced clinical skills training - that could improve patient care and reduce disparities in healthcare.

The entire redesign effort is very career focused,” says Dr. D. Douglas Miller, MCG vice dean for academic affairs. “There is a primary care career option; an academic pathway with dual degree options, because we know most students who pursue dual degrees want careers as academic faculty; and there’s an advanced clinical skills training or research option, which gives students time to delve into their chosen specialty and have a much richer fourth-year experience.”
