NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – What would we do if we discovered a large asteroid on course to impact Earth? While highly unlikely, that was the high-consequence scenario discussed by attendees at an October 25th NASA-FEMA tabletop exercise in El Segundo, California.

The third in a series of exercises hosted jointly by NASA and FEMA — the Federal Emergency Management Agency — the simulation was designed to strengthen the collaboration between the two agencies, which have Administration direction to lead the U.S. response.

American Heart Association recognizes role of Patient/Provider Relationships in managing Heart Failure on World Heart Day

 

American Heart AssociationLos Angeles, CA – A doctor she’d never met walked into Cathy Aumack-Bandy’s hospital room in January 2013 and told her husband that she had severe heart failure and should get her affairs in order. She initially thought he was in the wrong room. Her next thought was that she needed to switch doctors.

“He never even addressed me,” said Aumack-Bandy, a former psychologist from Ruskin, Florida. “Prior to this heart failure diagnosis, I had been a healthy 54-year-old. Now, it felt like he was sending me home to die.”
