Health Status of Katrina Survivors

Posted by Penny Kleiboeker on October 3, 2011 at 9:30 AM Comments comments (0)

I am looking for persons that have had direct contact with or are a Hurricane Katrina survivor.  I am asking what is their health status now compared to pre Katrina and what changed it.

Research shows me that there are mainly PTSD and other mental disorders, mainly secere depression.

I appreciate any comments that you have.

Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis?

Posted by Muffin89 on December 1, 2010 at 11:46 AM Comments comments (1)

I just wanted to know if anyone had any thoughts on genetic diagnosing. If you believe that it is murder? The "Designer Babies" ordeal. If you think it can be very beneficial to families that are having problems having children or have had problems in the past with childbirth. Just let me know your thoughts. I'm extremely interested! :D

We're redesigning AAHE4Me (thanks to Melissa Haithcox for the new catchy name!). I like the template because it reminds me of relaxation. I'm hoping the students will think so, too. I'm really excited about getting this up and going!
