Elizabeth Reddy, MD, is on the cover of the Spring 2015 Upstate Health magazine, related to a story about preventing the spread of HIV with a pill. This is something of which researchers were just beginning to dream in the early 1980s at the start of the AIDS epidemic. Now it’s available, and effective.
In this issue, you will also learn about “the 7-minute workout,” why we don’t hear much about cancer of the heart, and the difference between a primary and a comprehensive stroke center. You’ll meet a youngster who was able to hear sound, thanks to cochlear implants, a teen who returned to the sports he loves after brain surgery, and a physician with a personal story about health care proxies.
Scientists from Upstate share their expertise on regenerative medicine in this issue, along with stories about dengue fever and research into new drug targets for treating cancer. Other people connected to Upstate share their passion for dancing, for rowing, and for giving back to their community. Margaret Tandoh, MD, tells about returning to her native Liberia to help with the Ebola crisis.
