When she was diagnosed with COVID-19 last July, Krystal Oestreich worried she would give it to her nursing daughter, Adaline. What she passed along instead was a powerful antiviral in her breast milk, according to a case study at Medical College of Georgia.

About 4 years ago, Dr Jeffrey Hansen took up woodworking, thanks to his father-in-law, a craftsman and carpenter. The CA3 resident says that working pieces of raw wood on a lathe was not only an opportunity to bond with his father-in-law, but also an outlet for creative expression. The way he tells it, turning a log or branch into a vase or bowl is a straightforward process. After balancing a piece of wood on the lathe, he turns the wood at around 400 rpm while cutting and shaping it. As the piece becomes more balanced, he increases the speed to closer to 800–900 rpm. Depending on the piece, he might add some colored epoxy resin, then sand it and apply some wood sealer, oils, and finish. A sample of his work, clockwise from top left: pecan vase, eucalyptus bowl, cypress bowl, eucalyptus vase, purple vase, and cherry burl with red resin.

Last week we hosted our first ever Simulation Olympics. The event was the brainchild of fourth-year student Lillie Tien, who started MCG's Simulation Interest Group. Lillie was actually supposed to travel to Washington, D.C., last year to compete in a national simulation competition, but...well, COVID.
This year's MCG event was made possible by the work and planning of the interest group's board members Nick Guimbarda, Meghan Hovell, Anand Shah, and Disha Patel and the many volunteers who helped run this event. There were 10 teams total, who cycled through 3 different events:
"We are so excited to continue doing the Simulation Olympics as well as other workshops for students," Lillie tells us.

Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia, Inc.

1984 was a significant year for those with sickle cell disease (SCD). There are 100,000 people, mostly African Americans, in the U.S. alone living with sickle cell disease. SCD does however affect people of other races or ethnicities, including Caucasians.

In 1984, Dr. James Eckman (pictured) created the first 24-hour comprehensive acute care center for the disease. Out of an abiding concern for continuity of patient care, the 24-hour comprehensive sickle cell center began offering specialized care outside the traditional emergency room.

The first ever reported case of a treatment curing sickle cell disease was in 1984 and was discovered by accident. A child had undergone a bone marrow transplant in order to treat the child's acute leukemia, but it ended up curing their sickle cell disease as well.

And in 1984, the medication hydroxyurea was found to increase fetal hemoglobin in sickle cell patients, a discovery at the time that offered promising possibilities.
