Female veterans criticize gender disparities in VA medical system

HOUSTON — Navy veteran Tana Plescher said she was shocked by what a doctor told her when she sought care for a panic attack at a Veterans Affairs medical center in Texas.

“You’re a woman; I don’t know what to do with you,” she said he remarked.

The state’s restrictive abortion laws spotlight existing gender disparities within the VA medical system, according to former military women who shared their personal experiences during a listening tour held by Rep. Julia Brownley, D-Calif., chairwoman of the House Veterans Affairs Subcommittee on Health.

The VA does not provide any abortion services, even initial consultations, to women seeking more information about terminating their pregnancies. Unlike the Department of Defense, which provides abortions on military bases in cases of rape, incest or if the mother’s life is at risk, the largest population of female veterans nationwide are left without options in Texas.

“We spent our

Medical Advisory Board for ‘Dr. Oz Show’ Had People With No Medical Training

  • Dr. Mehmet Oz had a “medical advisory board” to support claims he made on “The Dr. Oz Show.”
  • The 43-member board included people with no medical training who promoted extreme and debunked treatments.
  • Claims they supported included drinking onion juice for the flu and subscription meal plans for curing cancer.

Republican candidate for US Senate representing Pennsylvania and former talk show host Mehmet Oz relied on a medical advisory board to support claims he made on “The Dr. Oz Show.”

Among practicing oncologists and certified psychologists, the board included people who had no formal medical training and promoted debunked treatments.

Dr. Ben Abella, an emergency physician in Philadelphia, told Insider the 43-member board projected an “aura of legitimacy” on Oz and his show, which ran for 13 seasons and was canceled last December after Oz decided to run for office.

Abella helped organize an event called

Top doctors denounce government decision to shut Israel’s American medical schools

The head of a state-backed panel tasked with finding ways for Israel to train more doctors has condemned the government’s recent decision to shutter three medical schools that cater to foreign students to make room for more locals, maintaining that the contentious and costly move was unnecessary .

Earlier this month, the Council for Higher Education announced it was shuttering American medical programs at Tel Aviv University, Ben Gurion University and the Technion in order to replace the 130 foreign students that study in them with Israelis, in light of a growing doctor shortage in the country.

But on Wednesday, Prof. Rafael Beyar, who led the council’s own committee to investigate ways to boost Israeli medical student numbers, told The Times of Israel that there were other ways to reach the goal.

“[The committee] put forward a detailed plan for how to accept 400 additional medical students for four-year programs.

Clark County medical examiner says unnatural deaths on the rise, proposes new fees

In Washington, a medical examiner assumes jurisdiction for deaths in certain circumstances and must provide medicolegal death investigation and forensic pathology services to determine cause and manner of death. Examples of when jurisdiction applies includes when someone in apparent good health dies suddenly, there are suspicious circumstances such as homicide or suicide, and deaths of incarcerated persons, premature/stillborn infants or unclaimed decedents.

Without additional funding for the department, Pruett said there could be slower response times, especially if an investigator is needed at more than one scene, as well as longer wait times for completed case reports. Pruett said that would not only frustrated community members waiting for autopsy outcomes but could cost the county its National Association of Medical Examiners accreditation, which in turn could put state reimbursements for exams at risk.

“There’s only so much compression the team will be able to manage until we start impacting other

Dr. Fauci Claims People Go To Medical School Because Of Him

It’s abundantly clear, two-plus years into the pandemic, that part of the reason why disproven COVID “interventions” have continued for so long is the egos of the supposed experts involved.

Perhaps no one symbolizes the massive, runaway, unchecked self obsession of credentialism better than Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Fauci has repeatedly referred to himself as science, and pointedly argued with any criticism of his methods and activism.

But Fauci recently took it a step further, claiming during a discussion that people go to medical school because of what he symbolizes.

According to Fauci, “in an era of the normalization of untruths and lies,” he represents “consistency, integrity” and most laughably, “truth.”

Israeli terror-fighting thermal imaging tech being adapted for medical purposes

Israeli thermal imaging technology designed to track terrorists and defend borders is getting a new incarnation — helping doctors get a clearer view of what is happening in patients’ bodies.

Sheba Medical Center has signed a new agreement to repurpose thermal imaging technologies that were previously reserved for military and security purposes. The agreement was signed this week between Sheba and Opgal, a subsidiary of Elbit Systems.

Thermal imaging is used to a limited degree in healthcare, but Sheba’s Dr. Boris Orkin told The Times of Israel that the new arrangement could lead to advances that help make the technology as commonplace as stethoscopes.

“Thermal cameras can become as widespread as stethoscopes, and there could well be devices in the pockets of every doctor,” said Orkin, director of Sheba’s Surgical Innovations Center, which will be developing new uses for the tech, told The Times of Israel.

He said that thermal
