Women And Heart Disease: Expert Advice To Protect Against The #1 Killer Of Women In The U.S.

Mission Viejo, CA ― Silence is one of the most deadly aspects of women’s heart disease, and cardiologist Dr. Jacqueline Eubany (Dr. Jackie) makes that point in her concise, accessible book, Women and Heart Disease: The Real Story:

Angie is a 46-year-old divorced mother of two school-aged children. One morning she was just not feeling her usual self….Undaunted, the busy mother went about her usual morning routine…. Angie’s coworkers noticed that she looked unusually pale and advised her to go to the doctor’s office. Hard-working Angie declined….As the sole financial provider for her family, the young woman felt she could not afford to take time off. There were too many outstanding bills and her children needed her. Angie hoped she would soon start to feel better.

Tragically, she did not. Days later she made it to the emergency room, but her heart was permanently damaged. Through anecdotes and friendly, jargon-free advice, Dr. Jackie tells readers how to reduce their risk by up to 80%, how to recognize a heart attack earlier, and how to make the healthiest choices for your heart and your loved ones.

Heart disease remains the number one killer of women in the United States, killing more women than breast and lung cancer combined. Dr Jacqueline Eubany is a board-certified cardiologist and electrophysiologist, currently practicing in Orange County, California. She attended the University of California Riverside for her undergraduate studies, followed by Boston University School of Medicine. She joined the United States Navy to complete her medical training, and served for twelve years.

She was inducted as a fellow in the prestigious American College of Cardiology, and in the Heart Rhythm Society. An active member in other distinguished societies, Dr. Eubany also serves on several advisory boards related to heart disease. She is a popular guest speaker for heart health events because of her accessible, articulate style.

Dr. Eubany is an avid traveler, visiting more than 50 countries, and enjoys scuba diving, horseback riding, biking and reading about world history. For more information, please visit: www.womenandheartdiseasebook.com

Forget About The Latest Fashions, Celebrities Are Now Inspiring Readers With Their Cancer Stories

  

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety)

I would like to send a complimentary copy of one of the books in the Reimagining Cancer series by doctors Mark Boguski and Michele Berman, in consideration of an interview or review from you.

Appealing to our celebrity-driven society, doctors Boguski and Berman are helping to increase cancer awareness. Both Reimagining Men’s Cancers and Reimagining Women’s Cancers provide critical medical information through personal accounts of celebrities coping with cancer that are not only inspiring, they can save lives. Connecting with an admired celebrity figure over something as life-altering as cancer can trigger readers to take preventative action for their health, as well as inspire hope in a patient already diagnosed. Since someone is diagnosed with cancer every 23 seconds in America (a rate that’s expected to rise by 2 million new patients in 2016), ensuring the delivery of accurate information is vital!

Please read the press release below and let me know if I may schedule an interview with either author, or forward a review copy of one of their books. If you would like to run this story we’d be happy to send you .jpgs of the doctors and the book covers. Thank you.

Forget About The Latest Fashions, Celebrities Are Now Inspiring Readers With Their Cancer Stories

“The illnesses of famous patients receive enormous attention from the media and serve as touchstones for patients and families dealing with similar conditions… By taking a series of famous cancer cases and looking at the actual information being received by the public, Doctors Boguski and Berman are furthering the important process of ascertaining exactly what these episodes teach us.”

–– Barron H. Lerner, MD, PhD, Professor of Medicine and Public Health, New York Presbyterian, The University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell, Author of When Illness Goes Public: Celebrity Patients and How We Look at Medicine

“Thank you for sharing the relationship between celebrity health conditions, consumer Internet search behavior, and its potential for developing teachable moments for the advancement of public health.”

–– Nan M. Laird, PhD, Harvey V. Fineberg, Professor of Biostatistics, Harvard School of Public Health

Boston, MA – Cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence. The get-out-of-cancer-free card? Prevention through information. The recent World Cancer Report from the World Health Organization states that about half of all cancers are preventable and can be avoided if current medical knowledge is better delivered. From People magazine, with a readership of 43 million to Internet sites like JustJared.com with over 80 million monthly views, celebrity information not only sells, it has the ability to educate about important issues––including cancer.

Whether readers are currently patients or consumers wanting to be better informed, Reimagining Men’s Cancers and Reimagining Women’s Cancers exemplify that information is empowering. Reading about a famous person coping with cancer can not only be inspiring, it can save a life. In the first two books of their Reimagining Cancer series, doctors Mark Boguski and Michele Berman team with writer David Tabatsky to provide celebrity stories focusing on the most common cancers that affect men and women today.

To provide readers with critical information to help them manage, cope, and recover from illness, these books are written in an easy-to-read style and format. Each chapter begins with basic anatomy concerning each cancer, followed by an overview of how we view a particular cancer today. The chapters flow easily into an explanation of signs, symptoms, diagnoses, scientific information and guidelines, and end on comprehensive surveys for treatments and prevention. Woven throughout are stories, both medical and anecdotal, from celebrities such as Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Lance Armstrong, Angelina Jolie, Joan Lunden, Melissa Etheridge, Sandra Lee, Rita Wilson, Christina Applegate, and Suzanne Somers.

Every 23 seconds someone in America is diagnosed with cancer. Education is the key, and by using clear and concise information by means of celebrity stories, these books can teach countless readers who might otherwise not pay attention to an epidemic likely to affect them or a loved one.

About The Authors

Dr. Mark Boguski and Dr. Michele Berman are a husband and wife team of physicians who have trained and taught at some of the top medical schools and research institutions in the country, including Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Washington University in St. Louis, the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. Celebrity Diagnosis, the website they founded and launched in 2009, is now featured as an integral part of the American Association for Cancer Research website and combines celebrity health conditions with up-to-date medical information on numerous cancers. Through their website, Dr. Boguski and Dr. Berman have created numerous “teachable moments in medicine,” giving the medical facts behind the headlines. Their aim is to increase health awareness and medical knowledge for patient empowerment and professional development, and raise the likelihood of consideration for early detection and preventative behavior.

For a patient facing cancer, or for a medical student overwhelmed by data, medical information alone can be quite daunting and often misses out on the human factor that is so vital in prevention and healing. David Tabatsky, through his writing and editing, has added an essential element to the book through his interviews with patients and cancer support groups, as well as by making the book easy to read.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Men Chase, Women Choose
The Neuroscience of Meeting, Dating, Losing Your Mind and Finding True Love
By Dawn Maslar, MS

“Men Chase, Women Choose is warm and witty with a perfect balance of science and insight. You’ll find yourself wondering why a book of this magnitude didn’t come out sooner. But like everything else in life, all in due time.” – Gabe Berman, author of Live Like a Fruit Fly

“Understanding the anthropological principles that underlie our responses to love does not lessen its beauty and enigmatic wonder, but allows us to clearly view love as a biological responsibility.”- Lisa McCourt, author of Juicy Joy: 7 Simple Steps to Your Glorious, Gutsy Self

Davie, FL ― A question that seems as old as time comes closer to a definitive answer than ever before ― What is love? In Men Chase, Women Choose, Dawn Maslar, MS, provides engaging insights into one of life’s most elusive and misunderstood topics by offering science-based research to help anyone discover and sustain love. Maslar’s relatable and easy-to-read book uses the most relevant neurological, physiological, and biochemical studies on the science of love, while incorporating stories and examples based on participants of her popular classes and seminars.

For the past decade, the “love biologist” has been using her cutting-edge research to describe how the brain works when two people first meet, start to date, fall in love, and then move on to a more passionate, lifelong love. Even simpler, she breaks down her love science into four precisely timed phases:

1. Attraction
2. Dating
3. Falling in love
4. Real love

During these phases, Maslar explains that “love” is actually neural activity as well as the presence or absence of certain neurotransmitters. Most people associate love with the euphoric feeling during which anxiety is low or nonexistent among these brain signals. However, Maslar demonstrates that levels of anxiety and other feelings can fluctuate throughout love’s path. “Love isn’t just one thing that you luckily fall into,” says Maslar. “Finding and maintaining lifelong love is a process … Because the stages are different, you can feel different emotions during each phase.”

Maslar reasons that once we understand how love works, we can make educated decisions. Men Chase, Women Choose helps readers in this boundless endeavor by addressing all those time-honored questions like:

• Does love at first sight really exist?
• Who should make the first move?
• What happens to your brain when you fall in love?
• Why won’t he commit?
• Why does love make us crazy?
• What can you do to have love that lasts a lifetime?

Readers can expect answers involving how love is a biological need, the “natural laws” of love, purposes of the brain’s anatomy, and how testosterone and other biochemical differences between men and women affect how we love. Maslar states, “When you understand the science of love, it will help you easily and effortlessly find nourishing and passionate, long-lasting love.”

More praise for Men Chase, Women Choose…

“Whether in between relationships or currently in one, readers will find valuable insight on how men and women interact with each other and what dynamics long-term relationships need to work. Maslar mixes scientific concepts, often with humor, making it a light and enjoyable read. – Theresa Braun, author of Groom and Doom: A Greek Love Story and dating blogger.

“Finally, a book that doesn’t treat finding true love like a Nora Ephron movie! Biology, nature, evolution … they all play a role in helping us find that special someone. Or in keeping them from us forever. – Eric Rogell, author of The Art of War for Dating

About the Author:

Dawn Maslar, MS, (Davie, FL) award-winning author, adjunct biology professor and the go-to authority on the science of love. She was voted one of the Top 20 Most Followed Dating Experts on Twitter and Best 28 Dating, Marriage and Relationship Blogs in the UK to follow in 2015. She is a contributing author at scienceofrelationship.com, a collection of leading experts in the field of scientific relationship research. She is a TEDx speaker on How Your Brain Falls in Love and worked with the TED Education division to create their Science of Attraction video. Her work has been featured on South Florida Today, Pittsburgh Tribune and NPR. Her online videos have had over 2 million views. In addition to the book, she has created The Great Love Experiment; a show where audience members learn about the science of love by participating in research reenactments on stage. It’s a fun and often hilarious event that she does at colleges, comedy clubs and singles events.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

11th Annual Clusterbusters Conference Presents Exciting New Research, Advocacy And Treatment Options For Cluster Headache Patients

Austin, TX ― The Clusterbusters 11th Annual Patient Conference, the largest gathering of cluster headache patients in history, will be September 15th-18th
at the Holiday Inn, Austin Midtown. Bringing together patients, their families, doctors and researchers to educate all involved, Clusterbusters also advances research, advocates for improved treatments and collaborates on legislative changes needed to end needless suffering and financial inequality.

Clusterbusters is uniting the voices of the families suffering from this debilitating disease. Cluster headaches, nicknamed “suicide headaches,” have a suicide rate 20 times the national average. The pain is so severe that most people suffering from the disease hide their suffering from family, friends and employers; celebrities and sports figures hide their condition for fear of losing their high-paying jobs.

Clusterbusters is directly involved in supporting exciting new research to be featured during the weekend conference. Presentations on genetic research at McGill University in Montreal, new treatment research studies through Eli Lilly, a psychological burden and quality of life study at the University of West Georgia, non-invasive devices presented by Electrocore, minimally invasive surgical implants conducted by Autonomic Technologies, and psilocybin research in partnership with Yale University and the VA will be included. Inspiration is the theme, highlighted throughout the program, commencing the evening of the 15th with registration and a cocktail hour reception.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Miracles We Have Seen: America’s Leading Physicians Share Stories They Can’t Forget

“A beautifully written collection from physicians witnessing the mystery and power of the human body and spirit in the most extreme circumstances.” – Dr. Jerome Groopman, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, New Yorker staff writer.

“We read so many accounts of freak accidents and rare diseases bringing misery into the lives of people who deserve better. That is why it was so refreshing, so soul-restoring, to read these accounts of near tragedies that were prevented by human efforts, good will, and caring.” – Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People and Nine Essential Things I’ve Learned about Life.

Deerfield Beach, FL – In Miracles We Have Seen: America’s Leading Physicians Share Stories They Can’t Forget (HCI Books), Dr. Harley A. Rotbart provides an assembly of essays written by peers in the medical profession, including deans and associate deans of medical schools, academic department heads at leading university medical centers, and national opinion leaders in an array of medical specialties.

These astonishing, first-person essays are written in everyday language for the delight of all readers, and depict medical outcomes that defied all expectations and, in some cases, science itself.

Dr. Rotbart writes, “Occasionally in the course of caring for our patients, we encounter events that truly stun us. Unforgettable occurrences…far exceeding the wide berth we are trained to allow for surprise.” His collection of miracles tells stories of impossible cures, miraculous timing, and recoveries from hearts stopped longer than survivable, catastrophic injuries, and freak accidents and occurrences, including:

• A nine-year-old boy who was decapitated in a horrific car accident but survived without neurological damage.
• A woman who conceived and delivered a healthy baby – despite having had both of her fallopian tubes surgically removed.
• A young man whose only hope for survival was a heart transplant, but just as he developed a potentially fatal complication making a transplant impossible, his own heart began healing itself.

As the physicians recount their very personal reactions to these remarkable clinical experiences, it is apparent that while some miracles are more emotional than physical, the event left a lasting imprint. In most instances, says Rotbart, the miracles actually directed them in their choice of specialty and has influenced much of their professional decision-making throughout their careers.

Although Miracles We Have Seen gives special insight into the lives and souls of doctors and how the miracles have affected them and their patients, Rotbart notes, “While faith and prayer certainly play an important role in many of our patients’ lives, as well as in some of the vignettes in this compilation, this is not a book about religion. Rather, this is a book about optimism and inspiration…what we don’t know or don’t understand isn’t necessarily cause for fear, and can even be reason for hope.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Harley Rotbart, MD (Denver, CO), has been a nationally renowned pediatric specialist, parenting expert, speaker and educator for over three decades. He is professor and Vice Chair Emeritus of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Children’s Hospital Colorado. He is the author of numerous medical and scientific publications, as well as books for lay audiences including No Regrets Parenting and 940 Saturdays. Dr. Rotbart has been named to Best Doctors in America every year since 1996, as well as receiving numerous other national and local awards for research, teaching, and clinical work. He serves on the advisory boards of Parents magazine and Parents.com, and is a frequent consultant to national and local media outlets. He is a regular contributor to Parents and The New York Times.
