    Medical Sociologist, Jane Leserman, Discusses Abuse, Trauma, and Pelvic Pain

    in Health

    Dr. Jane Leserman, who will be speaking at the International Pelvic Pain Society conference this October, is a medical sociologist and retired Professor from the Department of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.  The focus of her research has been on how stress and traumatic life events (e.g., sexual and physical abuse) affect long-term physical and mental health.  Specifically, she has examined the effects of stress and trauma on patients with gastrointestinal disorders, pelvic pain and those with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).  Her research has shown that trauma and stress are associated with many diverse and severe health effects years after these events.  Stress has been related to faster progression to AIDS and increased risk for mortality among the HIV infected.  Patients being seen for chronic pelvic pain and gastrointestinal disorders have worse health status (more health visits, poorer function, more pain) if they have a history of trauma. Dr. Leserman’s research has been the inspiration behind her becoming a member of the board of her local agency to prevent domestic violence.  Dr. Leserman has authored and co-authored over 100 papers on topics concerning psychosomatic and behavioral medicine. 

    You will not want to miss this one-hour discussion on her research behind the role of physical and sexual abuse and trauma within the diagnoses of chronic pelvic pain disorders. This will be a sneak preview of her larger lecture at the International Pelvic Pain Society conference in October (www.pelvicpain.org).

  • Paradigm Shift with Dr. Sam Mugzzi and Jane Pooley

    in Paranormal

    Central Coast grandmother Jane Pooley hardly fits the stereotype of a UFO believer. But the 51-year-old says she saw one last week.

    She described watching a craft with rotating lights moving silently above Brisbane Water, near where she lives - an area recognised as one of Australia's UFO hotspots.

    "I'm a conservative, Catholic, middle-aged, registered nurse and I've worked in an emergency department, so I've seen some pretty weird things. Nothing seems to surprise me much any more," she said.

    "I believe in the Christian faith but I don't think it negates it (the possibility of ET life)."It is the quest for indisputable evidence which drives Dr Ragbir Bhathal, director of the Australian Optical SETI (search for extraterrestrial intelligence) project. Night after night for the past 10 years, the University of Western Sydney engineering lecturer has peered through a powerful telescope on the university's campus, looking for flashes of light from alien civilisations.

    Other SETI projects search for radio transmissions but Dr Bhathal believes such technology could be obsolete for extraterrestrial intelligence.

    "We think if the ET are so much more advanced than us, they wouldn't be sending signals by radio waves but by using laser beams," he said, explaining that lasers carry more than a million times more information than a radio wave.A decade of searching has proved fruitless but Dr Bhathal said astronomical discoveries over the past 20 years provides a breakthrough could be close.

    Joy Keys chats with Actress Margaret Avery from Being Mary Jane about Lupus

    in Current Events

    Special Guest:  Margaret Avery moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career in 1968. In 1973 her Los Angeles Drama Circle Award-winning performance in the play “Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie?” caught the attention of Clint Eastwood and he quickly cast her in his film “Magnum Force”, serving as an entree for guest starring roles in numerous episodic T.V. shows and Blaxploitation films including “Scott Joplin”, “The Lathe of Heaven”, “The Return of Superfly” and “Heatwave”. She eventually got cast in her most widely recognized Academy-Award nominated role as Shug Avery in Steven Spielberg’s “The Color Purple”.

    She is a new public advocate for continued Lupus research and education through the Lupus Foundation of America; a cause preempted by personally knowing individuals living with Lupus as well as playing a character who suffers from the disease on BET's Being Mary Jane. http://www.margaretaveryonline.com

    Special Guest: Annette Myarick is the CEO for the Lupus Foundation of America’s (LFA) Philadelphia Tri-State Chapter. Prior to joining the LFA in 1991, she was with the Arthritis Foundation’s Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter for 14 years, most recently as the Vice President for Public Health Strategies. Annette has a Bachelor’s degree in Community Health Education from Temple University.
