Post-Super Bowl Blues?While spouses and supervisors may roll their eyes, mental health experts suggest not being so quick to dismiss the sudden loss of football as the cause of bad moods and lower energy.
'We Get Out There and Do'Thousands of students, resident physicians and faculty members volunteer each year as part of the Rush Community Service Initiatives Programs, which celebrates its 25th anniversary next year.
Most of the patients that I see at Rush are patients that have a new diagnosis or have a prior diagnosis of head and neck cancer, patients with thyroid disorders, patients with the need for reconstructive options of the head and neck. I also treat tumors that are not necessarily cancerous that are involving the head and neck, which may themselves not be prone to spread, but they’re usually in a difficult place.
If I am dealing with a patient that has a new diagnosis of cancer, one of the first things I want to know about that patient is who is important to them in their lives and who can help them throughout this treatment process — which ever of the many treatment options there are they choose — who is going to be there by their side. And, are they potentially the type of patient that’s going to need me to be by their side a little bit more.
