Cory Mohnike talks about his experiences as a trauma survivor in two articles: this one on the ABC-TV website out of Lincoln, NE, and this one in the Lincoln Journal Star. He often shares those experiences with the families of trauma patients who come into his hospital as well. “I let some of the families know that we’re going to have good days and we’re going to have bad days, but we’re going to have mostly good days and stay positive,” he was quoted as saying.

Courtney Palla is pictured in this article in the York, PA, Dispatch about a medical simulation clinic held for health education students from several schools in her area.

Leon Lebowitz comments on a recent survey in this press release on EurekaAlert.org that found the most frequently used asthma treatment among respondents was a rescue inhaler. “If you find you are relying on your rescue inhaler throughout the day or it is your ‘go to’ medication, it would be prudent to see your physician for a revaluation of your current condition and a reassessment of the medications you are using,” he was quoted as saying.

Jerry Gentile’s upcoming talk on COPD at a local health fair was announced in this article in the Warwick Advertiser out of New York.

Candace Yow shared a unique experience with her daughter earlier this month, reports this article in the Charlotte, NC, Observer. Both graduated from college – she with a bachelor’s degree in RT and her daughter with a bachelor’s degree in nursing.

Anne Acker’s family has a long history of involvement in their community’s volunteer emergency management service and it’s chronicled in this article in the Waunakee, WI, Tribune. Anne represents the third generation to volunteer.

Jerry McGlothen redirected his career into RT after losing both parents to respiratory related conditions, and now as he retires after 35 years, he shares his journey through the profession in this article in the Troy, OH, Daily Call. “I hope I have done enough to help people breathe in my years as a bedside respiratory therapist or leading respiratory therapists,” he was quoted as saying.

Virginia Mooney’s presentation on COPD is covered in this article in the Grand Island, NE, Independent. Virginia made the presentation before a veterans’ group in her community.
