Researchers at Geisinger Medical Center recently received funding totaling more than $44, 000 from a Geisinger Health System (GHS) - NYU Langone Medical Center (NYULMC) collaborative project focusing on personalized healthcare. The grant, titled "Expanding Comparative Effectiveness Research in Orthopedics by Capturing Uniform Measures of Patient-Reported Functional Outcomes at Two Institutions", will permit Geisinger to administer electronic questionnaires to patients with osteoarthritis (OA) via new, touch-screen monitors in its orthopaedic clinics. Results from these questionnaires will allow physicians to track patient-reported outcomes, which are critical in developing evidence-based protocols in OA management.
For each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. So after the surge in U.S. troops heading to Afghanistan, there will be an influx of injured veterans returning back home. But the U.S. Department of Defense has recruited its own "soldiers" in the battle against war casualties: a consortium of researchers who are improving care to wounded soldiers as well as the general public. Some of the orthopaedic researchers involved will lead a workshop about the program at the 56th annual meeting of the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS), March 6 - 9, 2010, in New Orleans. They will also present an overview of the program during Extremity War Injuries V, a symposium that takes place Jan.

Advances in tissue engineering are offering the promise of being able to restore lost bone and gum tissue following periodontal disease. About a third of the population are affected by chronic inflammatory gum disease which can result in loss of the bone and other tissues that support our teeth. Professor Saso Ivanovski, Listerine Chair in Periodontology at Griffith's School of Dentistry and Oral Health, said even when the infection or inflammation was brought under control, people can be left with an unsightly appearance and poor function. The colloquial expression 'long in the tooth' is often used to describe people and things of a significant age, however the unsightly effects of severe gum disease and gum retraction leading to wobbly teeth are not confined to the elderly.
For those of you out there who's skin is easily irritated by most makeup, you may want to try mineral makeup. This type of cosmetic is much more gentle on your skin and can sometimes help people who are overly sensitive. Sensitivity to cosmetics doesn't necessarily mean a rash or other irritation, it could simply mean that you break out every time that you try to wear makeup. If this sounds like it describes you, I urge you to try out some mineral makeup and see if you can use it without being irritated. This type of cosmetic can be bought at most super stores, like Walmart or Target. If you are unsure, or just plain don't want to spend the money, there is another benefit to mineral makeup, it is usually significantly cheaper than other types of cosmetics.

Either way, the fact is that these freebies are very easily found. I would say that when searching for regular cosmetic samples, out of ever ten to twenty sites you visit, only one or two will have an actual free samples.
