Dr. Raymond Rezaie Explains Herd Immunity and Why Everyone Should Consider Getting Vaccinated

Dr. Rezaie on Herd Immunity and Why Everyone Should Consider Getting Vaccinated

MONTREAL, QC, CANADA , May 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wondering if you should get the COVID-19 shot? Dr. Raymond is going to share some insights and address some concerns.
The United States is now averaging more than 2.5 million COVID-19 vaccine shots per day, leading the world. Over 40 percent of the American population has had at least one shot. However, experts are warning that the pandemic is far from over. To obtain herd immunity, we need 70 to 90 percent of the population to be immunized. Dr. Rezaie is going to explain why that’s so important.

“Herd immunity is essential,” Dr. Raymond Rezaie says, “if we can’t obtain herd immunity, we’ll struggle to move past the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 vaccines present low risks for most people. If you can get a shot, and your doctor suggests that you do, I highly recommend you get immunized.”

So what is herd immunity, and why is it so important? Herd immunity will occur when immunity among the populace is high enough to protect those who cannot get vaccinated. Once enough people have been immunized, the coronavirus will struggle to spread. Hopefully, it will then die out permanently, relegated to the history books.

Some people are unable to get vaccines for a variety of reasons. For example, people who are highly allergic to components found in vaccines. If that’s the case, getting the vaccine may cause a severe allergic reaction. Thankfully, such reactions are rare.

“Some people are unable to receive the COVID-19 vaccine for one reason or another,” Dr. Rezaie notes. “By encouraging as many people as possible to get the vaccine, we’ll slow the spread of COVID-19, which will protect everyone, including those who cannot get a shot.”

How about people who are immunocompromised? Such people suffer from weaker immune systems, which may result in complications with vaccines, including a weaker immune response. Dr. Raymond suggests that people with a compromised immune system first speak with a doctor.

“A compromised immune system may increase the risks of complications,” Dr. Rezaie says, “but at the same time if your immune system is weakened, the coronavirus could be an especially grave threat. This may make the vaccine even more vital, and certainly illustrates why herd immunity is so important.”

Dr. Rezaie Talks About the Risks of COVID-19 Vaccines

Many people are worried that the COVID-19 vaccines aren’t safe given how quickly they were developed. Indeed, the COVID-19 vaccines were developed more quickly than most other vaccines brought to the market.

“People are worried about the development timeline,” Dr. Rezaie notes, “but these vaccines have been thoroughly tested through extensive clinical studies. There have been some very limited reactions, but the risks posed by the vaccines are far, far less than the risks posed by the coronavirus.”

Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah: Remarkable Physical Properties of Hair Cells and Auditory Neurons

Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah

RENO, NV, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — As a current Professor of Physiology and Cell Biology Director in the Communication Science Program at the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine, Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah has emerged as a leading expert in the field of Age-Related Hearing Loss, or ARHL, and how auditory neurons, and their connections to hair cells, can play a part in reversing deafness.

Age-related hearing loss has become the most common sensory deficit, says Dr. Yamoah, "[and] 30% of people over 65 have some form of hearing deficit, a condition shown to have devastating consequences on quality of life."

Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah's findings are a part of his most current research project, Investigating Mechanisms of the Aging Auditory Neuron, a study funded by the National Institute of Aging (NIA), a part of the National Institute of Health (NIH), that began in 2016, with a targeted end date of May 2021.

Hair Cells | Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah

Says Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah, "The inner ear is structured like an orchestral platform where the symphonic sections play distinct functions. The aging sensory epithelia in the inner ear may succumb to weakening tight junctions between hair cells and their supporting neighboring cells. This may result in the breakdown of the machinery that allows the exquisite sensitivity of hair cells and their neurons to function properly, contributing to hearing loss."

In his ongoing studies, Dr. Yamoah has sought to determine the physiological neural mechanisms of ARHL, identify candidate genes involved, and demonstrate strategies necessary to counter ARHL. This research builds upon years of work from Dr. Yamoah to pave the way towards utilizing stem cells to restore inner ear cells' functions.

Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah has recently stated that "to our surprise, we found latent neuronal degeneration of afferent spiral ganglion neuron (SGN)-hair cell (HC) synapses before any apparent manifestation of outer hair cell (HC) bundle disruption and HC loss, using a recognized and distinct ARHL mouse model…We hypothesize that silent neuronal and synaptic degeneration may be the preeminent target to alleviate ARHL."

In a September 2020 seminar, Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah explained that the primary issue that he and his team are fighting against is that our bodies cannot restore them when human inner ear hair cells degenerate. Thus, the quest for alternative cell sources began as a means to potentially eradicate ARHL, something that could benefit the 10% of the population that experiences some hearing loss in their lifetime, whether it be from genetics, infections, drug use, trauma, and age.

Recurring Presentations and Lectures | Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah

A leading voice in the scientific community regarding ARHL, Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah has traveled the world many times over to do presentations and professorial lectures, including the University of Iowa, the Association for Research in Otolaryngology in San Diego, Northeast Ohio School of Medicine, as well as abroad at the University College of London and the University of Bordeaux in France. Dr. Yamoah's research and development have potentially life-altering implications and may change humans' relationship with debilitating hearing.

Munavvar Izhar MD Creates High-Quality ABIM Type Questions and Board Preparation Materials

Munavvar Izhar MD as CEO of Medical Examination LLC pours his knowledge into Residents, Fellows, Internists, and Nephrologists to prepare them

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Munavvar Izhar MD, CEO of Medical Examination LLC, who has about 30 years of nephrology experience, plays a vital role in creating the ABIM Chicago-based Exam World question sets. He supports this cause to help interns and physicians pass their American Board of Internal Medicine Certification, Recertification, and MOC exams.

Almost a thousand ABIM type nephrology questions help prepare Fellows and Nephrologists for certification or recertification examinations. These fully customizable practice sets are created based on the Blueprint of ABIM Examinations. The questions mimic the difficulty level as asked in ABIM Board Exams. The Questions are categorized under Various categories like ARF, CKD, ESRD, GN, Acid-Base, Fluid and Electrolytes, Transplant, etc. To make it more comprehensive Dr. Munavvar Izhar has also included Renal Physiology, Pharmacology & Anatomy. Munavvar Izhar has been innovative and thought it prudent to include a section of Renal Histopathology as well with questions based on and depicting classical teaching slides of renal histopathology that is frequently asked in ABIM Board Exams.

ABIM Board Exams are constantly evolving and changing with time. Realizing this Munavvar Izhar MD has also included new sections of Nephrology questions in areas of ICU & Critical Care Nephrology, Onconephrology, Genetics, Interventional and Acess Nephrology, Medical Director Responsibilities, and Issues. This makes Munavvar Izhar’s 1000 Nephrology Question Bank one of the most comprehensive question banks available. Dr. Munavvar Izhar and his team frequently review and update these questions and incorporate recent advances too. This nephrology board review question bank of this caliber at https://www.abimexams.com is the largest question bank available at the current time.

“Preparing for a licensing exam involving certifications and recertifications is one of the most significant and stressful times in a physician’s life.” That’s what it says on the ABIM Exam World website supported by CEO and physician Munavvar Izhar where the online practice sessions reside. Often nephrologists who pursue ABIM nephrology board certifications spend a week away from home in board reviews. This time away from their practices often cost them thousands of dollars that includes travel, stay in the hotel for a week, food, and registration for the course. Dr. Munavvar Izhar’s Nephrology preparatory materials have reduced testing expenses for practicing nephrologists to only a few hundred dollars and they can study in the comfort of their homes! The comprehensive topics and the explanations cover the entire spectrum of nephrology for ABIM Board Exam purposes.

The ABIM website states doctors and nephrologists limited by 2020-2021 Covid-19 quarantines may have the option to complete their certifications by the scheduled 2022 deadlines. The online board exam training that Dr. Izhar helps facilitate provides one more way for all individuals requiring a licensing exam during this period to complete their certification on time.

Munavvar Izhar MD and his team of nephrologists from academia and private practices do extensive research in drafting the questions. In addition, Dr. Munavvar Izhar, MD has published numerous research papers and articles in nephrology journals some of which are picked up by the press as well. He has also authored book chapters in textbooks of Internal Medicine and Nephrology. Dr. Munavvar Izhar has also published articles on recent advances in DIalysis and Wearable Kidney Devices to educate the vast majority of people dependent on dialysis.

Logged-in users of the Exam World portal can create practice tests based on a variety of question modes like in Tutor Mode or Exam mode. Munavvar Izhar who has taken numerous certification and recertification exams in both Internal Medicine, Nephrology, and Hypertension himself says that his platform gives the subscribers a real exam day feel.

Strong As A Mother: Dr. Laura Berman's Journey In Grief After Losing Her 16-Year-Old Son

Dr. Laura Berman teaches the power of love after losing her son Sammy Chapman at age 16

Dr. Laura Berman is best known as an author, scientist, and Oprah's Love and Relationship expert-and now is facing a new journey-as a mother in grief.

60005, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — After the tragic passing of Dr. Laura Berman's son Sammy Chapman in early February, her journey as a mother was forever altered. As a mother and personal development expert, I was fortunate to be a student of Dr. Laura's prolific words on resilience and grief.
The conversation taught me that love transcends space and time. And I quickly realized that the power of love withstands the tyranny of death. Ultimately, I absorbed into my DNA the right-in-front-of-me-fact that when everything around you goes dark, it is imperative to lean into love.

My schooling was directly sourced from Dr. Laura Berman herself. This mother, who happens to be a researcher, scientist, tv host, Oprah's wing woman, and New York Times Best Selling Author, allowed me to access the wisdom of navigating painful experiences.

Dr. Laura, recently penned the book, Quantum Love. From its coveted spot on my nightstand, I can easily reference lessons on how to harness unique energies to create the most powerful experiences in love. Within its pages, she explains that our lives are always in a state of contraction and expansion. When we feel disconnected from our bodies or our loved ones, we have the power to correct that energy. The idea that we have the ability to shift our energy, and in turn change our reality, leaves me gobsmacked. As we navigate dark moments in our lives, we can reposition ourselves to let slivers of light filter through the broken pieces.

Dr. Laura is living proof that in moments of deep pain it is possible to experience flickers of joy. Her testimony and her years of research were met with a collision of unimaginable darkness that defies this world's natural order of existence. On February 7th, Dr. Laura walked into her sixteen-year-old son's bedroom to have a chat with him and found him lying on the floor aspirating. Despite a valiant effort from medical responders, he remained listless and unresponsive. That moment was the demarcation of a new way of existing. On that heartbreaking day, Dr. Laura began a life that was void of the earthly connection to the child who infused laughter and joy into her life.

Dr. Laura immediately accessed her default mode. By nature, she is a helper, and through her blinding pain, she knew she had to reach out to help others. She understood that her celebrity status could help spare other mothers the pain of losing a child. Within hours, she had shared her story on social media.

Dr. Laura Bermans message via Instagram :
"My beautiful boy is gone. 16 years old. Sheltering at home. A drug dealer connected with him on Snapchat and gave him fentanyl-laced Xanax or Percocet (toxicology will tell) and he overdosed in his room. They do this because it hooks people even more and is good for business but It causes overdose and the kids don’t know what they are taking. My heart is completely shattered and I am not sure how to keep breathing. I post this now only so that not one more kid dies. We watched him so closely. Straight A student. Getting ready for college. Experimentation gone bad. He got the drugs delivered to the house. Please watch your kids and WATCH SNAPCHAT especially. That’s how they get them."- Dr, Laura

When I initially reached out to Dr. Laura, I didn't expect the busy mega-star to respond. I projected my insecurities by thinking that she should be in the fetal position, crippled by grief, and would have no interest in a conversation with me–a devout, but unknown superfan. However, her response was swift. Her words aligned with my mission of empowerment. And she cheerfully responded that she was happy to have a conversation with me. At this moment, I knew I was in the presence of a woman who was larger than life.

In the first few moments of our conversation, she radiated warmth and gritty strength. With familiar ease, she turned to a framed picture propped on a bookcase behind her and adjusted it so that I could see her son Sammy's, cheeky grin. Her comforting narrative had a slightly intellectual spin on the topic of grief. She explained that grief is different for everyone, and she is cognizant that for some in her family, her son's picture can be a trigger. So, although the picture comforts her, it may project someone else deep into the bowels of grief. Understanding that everyone's responses and triggers are different, is one of the things that drew me to Dr. Laura's perspective.

"The journey of grief is not linear" she explained. "Emotions bubble to the surface at different points of a day and can be overwhelming." Dr. Laura emphasized that bottling up emotions leads to illness, so they must be felt and released. Moving your body through the emotions helps to release them in a healthy way.

Dr. Laura walks the walk and practices what she preaches. I witnessed this first hand as I interviewed her. It is also evident when scrolling through her social media. She boldly shares her painful journey on all social media outlets in hopes to create change. With a regular cadence, she presses record on her phone, allows us intimate access into her journey through grief, then presses Post. She moves her body through the pain, sharing her tears, and communing with her support system. The power of her love for Sammy's lives on and transcends boundaries in this amazingly strong mother.

As I apply these teachings to my own life, I am choosing to embrace the messy. I am choosing to feel my emotions and not bottle them up. I am choosing to use my energy for good. And I chose to honor Dr. Laura's son, Sammy Chapman, and live life with enthusiasm and curiosity.

Every day is precious, so lean into love.

RSM Partners with MGH Institute of Health Professions and Kennedy Center on Early Intervention Initiative

(L-R): Cathy Leslie, Assistant Professor, MGH Institute of Health Professions; Griselle Tejeda, Program Director, Kennedy Center; and Colleen Boyce, Executive Director, RSM Boston Foundation.

(L-R): Cathy Leslie, Assistant Professor, MGH Institute of Health Professions; Griselle Tejeda, Program Director, Kennedy Center; and Colleen Boyce, Executive Director, RSM Boston Foundation.

RSM, MGH Institute of Health Professions, and the Kennedy Center are collaborating to help meet the needs of children and families in Charlestown, MA.

Each of the three organizations has unique resources that can be pooled to solve a pressing problem for local children.”

— MGH Institute President Paula Milone-Nuzzo

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Early intervention programs significantly improve chances of optimal child development and academic success by identifying specific developmental areas that need attention right at the start of a child’s education. With this in mind, the Charlestown office of accounting firm RSM decided to make early intervention a philanthropic priority in 2021. RSM partnered with MGH Institute of Health Professions and the Kennedy Center to fund a new early intervention initiative to benefit children in Charlestown.

Tapping the generosity of RSM, the academic expertise of the MGH Institute, and the early education work of the Kennedy Center, the program has one goal: improving academic performance of under-served children in Charlestown.

“What I think is so powerful about this model is its business, academic, and community emphasis” says MGH Institute President Paula Milone-Nuzzo. “Each of the three organizations has unique resources that can be pooled to solve a pressing problem for local children.”

Right now, the initiative is in the fact-finding stage to determine the level of need and services required for the 200 young children (ages 0-5) that the Kennedy Center serves. Dr. Cathy Leslie, an assistant professor in the MGH Institute’s occupational therapy doctoral program, is leading the initiative in collaboration with faculty and graduate students from occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, and nursing. The group is working closely with teachers at the Kennedy Center to understand the specific needs of the children the center serves, most coming from the two housing developments located on nearby Medford Street.

“To be successful and make a long-term difference, we need to collect the right data to drive the work we will be doing,” explains Leslie. “The teachers have been amazing, and what is clear is the strong connection they have not only with the children but also with the parents.”

“We are bringing together two teams of experts who are passionate about the education of young children,” adds Kennedy Center Executive Director Thara Fuller. Both groups are committed to ensuring that young children are as ready as possible to succeed when they enter kindergarten in the Boston Public Schools at age five or six.

The project is designed to have an impact quickly by focusing on enhanced capacity to observe and screen children for developmental delays so that appropriate follow-up services can be designed and implemented. “We aim to move more efficiently from identifying an area of concern to the actual intervention, whether related to speech and language, motor skills, or other aspects of healthy development. The sooner we act, the sooner the children benefit from services,” explains Fuller.

This vital work is a result of a grant from RSM, who for years has made children in Charlestown a priority. According to Colleen Boyce, Executive Director of the RSM Boston Foundation, “Charlestown has one of the highest rates of economically disadvantaged students and one of the highest rates of English learners in Boston. We hope to make an impression on other businesses in the Boston area, leading by example on how you can focus on your neighborhood and make a difference.”

The early intervention grant marks the second time RSM has collaborated with the Institute. In 2019, RSM provided a three-year grant to MGH Institute researcher Dr. Tiffany Hogan to support the literacy work she is doing at the Harvard-Kent Elementary School. Hogan used findings from this work to apply for and receive $3.6 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health to sustain her work in improving literacy outcomes in Charlestown and other districts across the country.

“Charlestown continues to grow and change and so do the learning challenges. COVID-19 will set many children behind, and we hope to set up more programing that bridges the gap that will be caused by the current crisis,” says Boyce. “Our employees continue to want to give back and collaborating with partners like the MGH Institute of Health Professions is proving very beneficial.”

GeniusVets Launches New Job Board for Veterinary Practices

New Recruitment Platform and HR Toolkit Created to Help Independent Practices

We’re the top-performing company in VetMed when it comes to search engine optimization, so we’re applying these same principles to help our clients’ job postings reach the top of Google searches.”

— David Hall

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Recruitment and retention of staff are among the most prevalent concerns of veterinary practice owners today. Today’s Veterinary Business reported that veterinarians and veterinary assistants had a combined average unemployment rate of 0.1% in 2020. And while the overall unemployment rate has soared during the COVID pandemic, veterinarians are even more shorthanded today, as millions of homebound Americans adopted new pets, leading to double-digit growth in many hospitals.

To help fill this need, GeniusVets has recently enhanced its industry-leading veterinary directory with new features to help practices find, hire, and retain quality doctors and staff. These features are free to practices and include a veterinary job board as well as an HR and recruitment toolkit.

“Adding this job board to our marketing directory was a natural progression,” said GeniusVets CEO Harley Orion. “We want to help the many veterinary professionals who have told us over just how challenging it is to find top-notch employees. Hospitals can post unlimited job openings at no charge, which can include images, videos, and deeper information about the practice to help attract the right candidates – and I’m happy to say this is all at no cost to the practice.“

GeniusVets Co-Founder and Chief Strategist David Hall added, “Independent practices have a hard time competing with the extensive reach of big corporations. This job board and comprehensive HR toolkit are all about leveling the playing field. We’re the top-performing company in VetMed when it comes to search engine optimization, so we’re applying these same principles to help our clients’ job postings reach the top of Google searches.”

Job seekers can search for opportunities on GeniusVets.com by city, state, and job title. Job postings are also set up for easy social media sharing so that veterinary practice owners can promote these opportunities on their networks.

The GeniusVets HR Recruitment Toolkit is a guide to attracting, retaining, and maximizing the performance of veterinary staff, based on years of working with practices throughout the country along with insights from numerous top-performing veterinary practice owners and consultants.

Both the job board and toolkit are free to all veterinary practices that have claimed their profiles. Practices can claim their profile at geniusvets.com/start. To access these resources, visit geniusvets.com/recruitment-resources.

Moms Mishn 30- Day Challenge Motivates Mothers to Practice Self-Care

Self-care challenge

Michelle, Mama Mish, Creator of Moms Mish’n.

The challenge begins May 9th. The free downloadable PDF, Moms Mish 30- Day Self Care Challenge, encourages Mothers to devote more time for themselves.

Sometimes as moms we forget who we were before kids”

— Michelle Marrero

GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — As Mother's Day approaches many are off seeking gifts for the mothers in their lives. However, out of the many options available to them, one of the hardest things for a mother to obtain is simply just a little more time to themselves. Moms Mish'n 30- Day Self Care Journal offers a menu of ways mothers can practice self-care. The purpose is to allow moms to choose what they do each day. Then, document in the journal what "mishn" was accomplished. By allowing individuals to choose the Mish'n and document the outcome, the journal enforces a regular self-care routine.

Mothers tend to do everything for everyone else other than themselves on a daily basis. Some often lose sight of who they were before becoming a mother. Self-care plays a huge part in overall mental health awareness. In order to take care of others, we must take care of ourselves first.

Michelle, the creator of Moms Mish'n, brings to light her experiences as a mother. She opens up about her battles with postpartum depression. Michelle, the mother of two daughters, started her blog with the hopes of not only bringing together a community of strong women but to set an example for her young children. In a recent blog post, she states, "It was very hard for me at first to accept help. I have always been independent and I didn’t “need” anyone helping me. It made me feel like a failure. My biggest fear was my child not wanting me and wanting the other person for comfort." She goes on to express, "A lot of times the reasons many new mothers fall into the path of postpartum depression is because we lose control." Michelle has always had a passion for uplifting others. Moms Mish'n was built to help moms accomplish goals, one mishn at a time.
