Our new textbook: Pediatric Surgery - Diagnosis and Treatment

I am happy to announce that our new textbook has just been published! Our mission was to gather together useful information for practitioners at the bedside caring for children who may be in need of an operation. We had the good fortune to draw on the collective knowledge of the many specialists at the Janet Weis Children's Hospital, making the work a true multidisciplinary collaborative effort. It is a book to be used in action trying to help an individual child.

For those interested, here is the Amazon page for our book:

It is our hope that it helps out many children!

Help our Pink Glove Video win by voting!


Hi everyone,

As many of you know, since leaving the Air Force I work for Geisinger Health System. It is an incredible place with a great big team of friends and neighbors working together to improve the health of people in Pennsylvania's Susquehanna Valley. One of the things we work so hard at is beating cancer. People go beyond what they do at work. M and I have run in the Tata Trot for several years. But a really impressive and creative work is Geisinger's Pink Glove video, made by passionate volunteer effort. Please consider voting for us!

You can see and vote for the video here.

Help us spread the word about the Peter Gelinas Memorial scholarship!



We have more and more people involved in our mission to create a scholarship in memory of Peter Gelinas, who died in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade center. However, we still need more help to make it to the goal of $25,000 necessary to create an endowment that would provide a yearly award to an incoming freshman.

Please consider spreading the word through face book by "liking" our scholarship cause page:

https://www.facebook.com/GelinasScholarship?ref=stream

We would also love to hear your thoughts on the page: please take a moment to send us your memories, opinions, wishes, and encouragement with a short post.

And we still need donations! Any amount will get us that much closer to goal.

Please share this message with friends, and the website to donate is:

Thanks you so much for your support and hope everyone is staying warm: especially those under 3 feet of snow in New England!
