Each day, 164 people lose their lives – many unnecessarily – due to improper care of pressure wounds also known as bedsores, a little-known area of medicine that is growing at an alarming rate with the rapid aging of our society.
Registered and licensed vocational nurses and those in related fields may earn continuing education credit and certification in the area of wound care by enrolling in weekend courses sponsored by the College of Long Term Care:

• August 26-28, 2015 – Miami, FL (Includes Skills Lab)
• September 9-11, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA (Includes Skills Lab)
• September 23-25, 2015 – Oakland, CA (Includes Skills Lab)
• October 28-30, 2015 – Dallas, TX (Includes Skills Lab)

“The growing problem of pressure wounds is especially challenging for nursing homes that have had to send their residents to specialty clinics and hospitals for treatment,” said Anvar, who also founded the College of Long Term Care. “This is especially costly when you factor in ambulance transportation, lifting and moving patients in delicate health, admittance to the hospital and surgical care. Also, the simple act of transporting patients can lead to the onset of additional pressure wounds. By teaching staff how to prevent such wounds and identify them at the earliest stages, we can reverse these troubling statistics.”
Weekend courses sponsored by the College of Long Term Care will reveal these basic facts about caring for wounds:

• Avoid excess baths (should only bathe for 3-5 minutes 2-3 times per week)
• Keep water temperature lukewarm – not hot
• Add bath oil
• Do not use most soap products as they contain detergent (Dove is the exception)
• Do not use washcloths
• Pat dry
• Apply moisturizer immediately after bathing and reapply 4 times each day
• Stay well hydrated
• Avoid caffeine, spices and alcohol

The month of May has been named the Mental Health Awareness month. As part of this initiative, Dr. Delvena Thomas, Director of DRT Behavioral Services is organizing a one day event called Free Mental Health Fair with other local businesses and organizations, in an effort to put all the pieces of holistic wellbeing together – mental, physical, and spiritual – and provide the community the tools they need to stay healthy and strong.

Attending community members will be able to enjoy the following free services: Boot camp @ 10am, blood pressure screenings, BMI and glucose readings, as well as free access to government mental health agencies and private practices of different specialties. Food trucks and refreshments will also be present for locals to enjoy.

Mental Health Awareness Facts:
• 9% of the population have been diagnosed with a serious mental illness³
• Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. (more common than homicide)²
• Depression and anxiety are among the most common medical problems worldwide²

After years of medical practice, Dr. Hossein Joukar envisioned a change in the way the local community receives healthcare. Tired of the clouded, inefficient and frankly, unfair experiences of those seeking medical attention, he set out to build a clinic with the patient in mind. In 2005 the first RiteCare facility was inaugurated and Dr. Joukar made sure that his establishment embodied the ideals that have governed his own medical career.
Starting an urgent/walk-in care facility seemed the most logical fit. Urgent cares are convenient alternatives to traditional healthcare facilities. As opposed to traditional primary providers, appointments are not necessary to receive attention, and they are available 7 days a week, with longer operating hours. Before urgent care, the only other option for families experiencing minor conditions such as cold and flu, sprains, minor burns and infections, was to rush over to a crowded hospital emergency room. These visits not only lasted long and uncomfortable wait times, sometimes up to 8 hours, but also cost a substantial amount of money, no matter the insurance provider. Urgent care centers like RiteCare have facilitated the treatment of non-life threatening conditions by seeing patients quickly and efficiently.
“It was important to provide a space for patients to feel confident in the care they are receiving, as well as the price they are paying,” said Dr. Joukar. “We are advocates for fair costs and transparency when it comes to billing. Our patients, insured or not, know exactly what will be charged before any procedure is performed.”
From the moment a patient arrives at any of the four RiteCare facilities, they can expect the utmost level of service performed by any of the board-certified physicians currently on call. In addition to urgent care medical services, RiteCare also provides a variety of services including primary care, physical therapy, school or sports related physical examinations, travel and seasonal vaccinations and immigration physicals. Employers can also count on RiteCare to provide drug testing, occupational medicine/therapy and work-related physical examinations.

A presentation at the Church of Perpetual Life in Hollywood, Florida will discuss breakthroughs in organ transplantation medicine.

Experts in the field believe that replacement of failed cells, tissues, or organs could cause over 30% of all deaths in the United States to be substantially postponed—increasing the chance of living to age 90 by more than 10 times.

Unfortunately, the supply of transplantable organs is much less than the demand. There are long waiting lists of potential organ transplant recipients, most of whom die before an organ becomes available. In the United States, it estimated that only about 2% of the potentially needed organ transplants are carried-out. Even when organs are transplanted, they may be poorly matched to the recipient, requiring immune suppression measures that decrease the quality and quantity of life of the recipient.

Come to the meeting to learn about breakthroughs in transplantation of heart, kidney, liver, lung, and other organs that could save many lives of people who die prematurely because of organ disease or failure.

Thursday, February 26, 2015 at 7:15 pm (doors open at 6 pm)

The service will be held at the Church of Perpetual Life

Dentistry from Our Hearts: Spreading Free Smiles Throughout South Florida

February 4, 2015

AVENTURA, FL — The Dental Care Group and Dental Care Group Kids are bringing free smiles back to the community! On Sunday, February 8, 2015, they’ll host the 4th annual Dentistry from Our Hearts. Their dental teams will be donating their time to provide free services including exams, cleanings, fillings, bondings, extractions, x-rays and emergency care at both their Aventura and Pembroke Pines offices during this year’s event.

With the help of their fellow dentists, hygienists, clinical and administrative teams, volunteers and sponsors, Dr. Rick Mars, Dr. Joel Glicksman and Dr. Josh Coussa have treated over 1000 patients and donated nearly half a million dollars in dental care through the Dentistry from Our Hearts program since 2012.

Tooth decay, which is almost entirely preventable, is the most common chronic illness among school-age children. Left untreated, it can result in infection, unbearable pain, loss of teeth and acute systemic infection. Yet nearly one in four American children have untreated tooth decay. For low-income children, the rate doubles.

“For many, a visit to the dentist is unaffordable and inaccessible. More than 85 million Americans have no form of dental insurance. We are looking to address this concern and give back to the members of our community who need it the most,” said Dr. Rick Mars.

The event will take place from 9 am to 4 pm on February 8th. Patients will be seen on a first come first served basis. If you would like more information on this event, or to schedule an interview with Dr. Rick Mars, please contact Leslie de Lepine at (305)935-2797 ext. 249 or via email at [email protected]

The story of a South Beach legend

Walk to the Fifth Street lifeguard stand on South Beach at 5:15 pm any day. You will see a bearded, long-haired shirtless man wearing black shorts, one black glove, and a headband that’s black, too. People call him the “Raven,” and he’s been standing in front of that lifeguard stand at that time for the last forty years, getting ready for his eight-mile jog up and down the beach. That’s right—Raven has run eight miles on the sands of South Beach every day since 1975, through concussions, hurricanes, food poisoning, animal attacks, hail and high water. And he’s still going.

This event will feature:

A reading of poetry written by the Raven himself
Screening of the feature documentary
Invitation to join the Raven on his famous 8 mile run on the beach following the film at 4:15 PM
