My youngest daughter had "summer assignments" to plague us this summer. Not only was the summer vacation shorter, but it's always a delight when there are the dreaded summer assignments.

Where Hope Lives

I've had the honor to speak to three groups of caregivers today at the Memphis VA Hospital. Nurses, physicians, and other clinical caregivers. This hospital is one of three major spinal cord injury VA hospitals in the country and these are very special people. One nurse I spoke to said she'd ...

9/11 Anniversary of Independence Day

Growing Pains

Spices, the kind you can get at your local supermarket, can affect your health. Dr. Dunaway gives you actual, real, medical/healthcare facts... then makes fun of 'em anyway. So curl up next to your computer, get a spoonful of capsaican, (the stuff that makes you break out in a sweat ...

Stethoscope Directions

I've got a six year old friend by the name of Wheaton who ended up in the hospital last week. He's a delightfully precocious kid and wise beyond his years according to his mom. He also has decided he's going to be a doctor. As a 'get well' token, I send ...
