  • Reducing Infant Mortality in the United States

    in Health

    DR. FORD HAS A CONFLICT.  WE ARE WORKING TO REBOOK THIS FOR NEXT WEEK.  SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. - JOYCE AND ROBIN


    What can we do to lower the incidence of infant deaths? Joyce and Robin speak with Dr. Robert Ford, a retired obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) from West Memphis, Arkansas, now living in Memphis, Tennessee. Dr. Ford shares his insights into this problem, which is highest in the Southern states.


    Unfortunately, about 24,000 infants died in the United States in 2011. The loss of a baby remains a sad reality for many families and takes a serious toll on the health and well-being of families, as well as the nation.


    The death of a baby before his or her first birthday is called infant mortality. The infant mortality rate is an estimate of the number of infant deaths for every 1,000 live births. This rate is often used as an indicator to measure the health and well-being of a nation, because factors affecting the health of entire populations can also impact the mortality rate of infants. There are obvious differences in infant mortality by age, race, and ethnicity; for instance, the mortality rate for non-Hispanic black infants is more than twice that of non-Hispanic white infants.


    What are the Causes?


    Fortunately, most newborns grow and thrive. However, for every 1,000 babies that are born, six die during their first year.1 Most of these babies die because they are—



    Born with a serious birth defect.
    Born too small and too early (i.e., preterm birth; birth before 37 weeks gestation).
    Victims of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
    Affected by maternal complications of pregnancy.
    Victims of injuries (e.g., suffocation).


    These top five leading causes of infant mortality together account for 58% of all infant deaths in the United States in 2011.

    Health Care Marketing Ideas

    in Marketing

    Health care success is heavily dependent on word of mouth. We know that people tend to turn to their family and friends for recommendations whenever they have a health problem, and we have the best plan to make this work in your favor.


    Word of mouth occurs naturally, but, as any other advertising phenomenon, it can also be efficiently kick-started and controlled by a marketer. Social interactions have massively changed in recent years by the use of social media platforms - and the type of content that gets shared most often on social media is video. If you want people to talk about your health care business, you need video content to get the conversation started.


    But, when it comes to health care professionals, there’s more to video content than just creating a shareable piece. The best health care marketing ideas are those that create a personal connection. Let's be honest - most people are terrified by their first visit to a new doctor - even if it's a regular checkup or a routine verification. A video is a chance to establish a connection before actually meeting the doctor. A video can help a patient set their mind at ease plus make them comfortable. For you, as this is more than advertising: it’s a great opportunity to introduce yourself, and to share your first smile with future patients. Thus, when you actually meet them in person, they’ll already be more relaxed and more willing to trust you.


    Health care marketing ideas are not as much about marketing, as about direct, interpersonal, human to human communication. Our videos can make your business stand out and help highlight its personality and its appeal – so that people contact you with a smile on their faces. We know the competition is tough, and we can give you the tools to get ahead of them in no time.

    The Free American

    in Education

    James Perloff Truth is a lonely Warrtior Thomas Jefferson said:


        Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle. The real extent of this state of misinformation is known only to those who are in situations to confront facts within their knowledge with the lies of the day  I really look with commiseration over the great body of my fellow citizens, who, reading newspapers, live and die in the belief that they have known something of what has been passing in the world. (Letter to John Norvell, June 14, 1807
