Matt Bonner Drives Offense to Help Granite Staters Get Covered

Concord, NH (PRWEB) January 12, 2015

Two-time NBA champion Matt Bonner, a Concord native and center/forward for the San Antonio Spurs, has teamed up with Covering New Hampshire in an effort to educate uninsured Granite Staters about affordable options for health coverage.

In a new 30-second Public Service Announcement released today by Covering New Hampshire, Bonner talks about the importance of getting covered and the dozens of quality, affordable plans now available to Granite Staters through the Health Insurance Marketplace. He also reminds viewers of the looming February 15 deadline to get enrolled in coverage for 2015.

The video is available online now at http://www.CoveringNewHampshire.org and will be circulated widely as Covering New Hampshire works to educate Granite Staters about the Health Insurance Marketplace.

But what does Matt Bonner have to do with health care coverage? Bonner falls into the group most likely to be insuredmen, aged 35 and younger, often referred to as the young invincibles. In New Hampshire, thousands of younger men are eligible for financial assistance that makes health insurance affordable. Covering New Hampshire and Bonner hope to break through and convince this group to sign up for coverage in advance of the February 15 deadline.

Covering New Hampshire is the official, free resource for Granite Staters to learn about the Health Insurance Marketplace and the affordable health insurance plans that are now available. Covering New Hampshire aims to help people understand the health care law and assist in connecting people with the Health Insurance Marketplace.

Forensic Nurses Week Recognizes Important Work in the Field


Elkridge, Md. (PRWEB) November 10, 2014

Each year, the International Association of Forensic Nursesa nursing association representing more than 3,300 registered nurses and other professionals in 22 countriesorganizes Forensic Nurses Week to celebrate the accomplishments and dedication of professionals in the field as well as raise awareness about the importance of their work.

Forensic Nurses Week, celebrated this year from Nov. 10 to 14, has a theme of Leadership. Care. Expertise. The week is celebrated internationally though awareness events in local communities and education efforts to teach colleagues about the forensic nursing practice. Forensic nurses all over the world wear lilac (the designated color of forensic nursing) to mark the week.

This week is so important because awareness of the specialized knowledge and skills of a forensic nurse can increase access to care for those individuals who have forensic needs as well as health care needs, said Sheila Early, RN, BScN, board president (and the first Canadian to hold the volunteer position). Creating awareness of forensic nursing services within the health care world can only lead to better public awareness and access.

According to the association, health care consumers are becoming more aware of the value of having skilled caregivers to meet their forensic needs in life and in deathbut there is still a long way to go because many people are not familiar with the forensic nursing specialty and its role in victim care and the criminal process.

Forensic nurses provide specialized care for patients who are victims and/or suspects who have experienced injury (both intentional and unintentional). These healthcare professionals are nurses first, but have knowledge of the legal system and expertise in forensic science. After meeting a patients medical and psychosocial needs, a forensic nurse often collects evidence, provides medical testimony in court, and consults with legal authorities.

We are not the first group of helping professionals that come to mind when people think about violence, said Jennifer Meyer, BSN, RN, SANE-A, SANE-P, volunteer board president of the International Association of Forensic Nurses Foundation. “Typically, they think of law enforcement, advocates or even prosecutors. However, at every step of the wayfrom reporting the crime to the courtrooma forensic nurse is there. We provide hands-on care the moment a patient presents to our hospitals and clinics. We are present as they report to law enforcement and we are present to testify in cases that go through the justice system. The public deserves to know more about us and how to access our care.

Raising this level of awareness is an important aspect of Forensic Nurses Week.

Forensic nurses use their advanced education and training to provide nursing care, collect evidence and provide consultation in a variety of areas including: sexual assault, intimate partner violence, child abuse and neglect, death investigation, elder mistreatment, corrections, emergency services, mass disasters, psychiatric mental health and public health.

LATEST NEWS FROM THE ASSOCIATION

The International Association of Forensic Nurses is proud to announce that it was awarded a grant from the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW). The new project will assist OVW to develop a National Protocol for Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examinations: Juveniles. The goal is to include national, state, local and tribal experts throughout the country who work with child victims of sexual assault and collaborate with these experts to determine the best practices for delivering care to children who have been sexually assaulted. The process, utilizing a multidisciplinary Advisory Committee, will include a detailed examination of current standards and any existing protocols in the care of child victims of sexual assault, and will culminate in the creation of a protocol specifically for the pre-pubertal victim. The association and its members played an active role in the development of the National Protocol for Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examinations: Adult/Adolescent in the original version published in 2004 as well as the update to the Protocol in 2013.

In addition, the association and its partner, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, have been working on the sustainability of SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners) programs. This collaborative project focused on the sustainability and growth of SANE programs, and just launched the SANE Program Sustainability app in the iTunes store Oct. 20. The mobile app offers key information about how to grow and sustain healthy SANE Programs including staffing and leadership, collaboration, assessment and evaluation, funding, program expansion, and pediatrics.

THE ASSOCIATION AT A GLANCE

With more than 3,300 members from 22 countries, the International Association of Forensic Nurses has a mission to provide leadership in forensic nursing practice by developing, promoting, and disseminating information internationally about forensic nursing science. Victims of violence and abuse require care from a health professional who is trained to treat the trauma associated with the wrong that has been done to thembe it sexual assault, intimate partner violence, neglect, or other forms of intentional injury. Forensic nurses are also a critical resource for anti-violence efforts. They collect evidence and give testimony that can be used in a court of law to apprehend or prosecute perpetrators who commit violent and abusive acts. By hiring and training forensic nurses, communities supply themselves with a vital link to the administration of justice. The association also offers certification for Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners in both Adult/Adolescent (SANE-A) and Pediatric (SANE-P) patient care.

Study: Sex Toys Can Spread HPV; CBCD Examines the Medical Evidence


Rochester, NY (PRWEB) November 12, 2014

Infected with the HPV virus? The CBCD recommends taking Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. – Greg Bennett, CBCD

A study published in the journal Sexually Transmitted Infections found the HPV virus on 89% of tested vibrators. The study conducted the test immediately after use, and before cleaning. Importantly, even after cleaning, HPV was found on more than 50% of the tested vibrators. This means that cleaning is only partially effective in removing the virus. HPV was detected in the vaginal samples of 9/12 (75%) women. Vibrator 1 shaft swabs were HPV positive before cleaning in 89% (8/9), immediately after cleaning in 56% (5/9), and 24 h after cleaning in 40% (2/5) of those that were HPV positive immediately after cleaning. Another study supported these findings. Researchers gave 12 women two vibrators each and detected the virus immediately after self-use on at least one of the vibrators used by all nine participants who tested positive for HPV. (See Reuters, from April 23, 2013) (2). Dr. Teresa Anderson said Sex toys used between partners within the same sexual encounter have the potential for transmitting HPV (2). HPV can cause genital warts or lead to various forms of cancer. Currently there are no approved drugs for people already infected with the virus. Therefore, The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) recommends that HPV infected individuals take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. The formula of these natural antiviral products was shown to reduce HPV symptoms in two post-marketing clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines.

Click to learn to learn more about HPV symptoms.

The formula of Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR formula is effective against the HPV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, individuals infected with the HPVreported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR. (3) The study authors also wrote that we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms. (3)

Both products can be ordered online on the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR websites.

Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.

The small study from the Indiana University School of Medicine mentioned above was conducted with female participants who had engaged in sexual relations with both a man and a woman during the prior year. The study did not question whether participants had been vaccinated against HPV. The investigators gave each woman a cleaning product, one vibrator made of thermoplastic elastomer – known as a Rabbit – style vibrator – and another made of soft silicone. They asked participants to swab the vibrators after vaginal use, immediately after cleaning and 24 hours later. Nine of the participants tested positive for HPV, and the virus was detected on at least one of the two vibrators given to each of them. Just after use, HPV was found on all but one of the thermoplastic vibrators and on six of the nine silicone vibrators (2).

In addition, researchers found that even after cleaning, the researchers detected DNA from HPV on five of the thermoplastic vibrators and four of the silicone ones. The silicone vibrators responded better to the cleaning after 24 hours. The researchers did not detect the virus on any of the silicone vibrators a day after cleaning, but they did find HPV on two of the thermoplastic sex toys (2). Researchers believe the difference could be because one material is more porous than the other.

Dr. Jeffrey Klausner said When people are intimate, they’re going to share viruses and germs it probably would make sense for people not to share their sex toys (2).

Importantly, the medical community once thought that women who have sex with women were at low risk for HPV. But studies have since shown HPV infections are common among these women (2).

Are there treatments or remedies available against the HPV?

There are no drugs approved against the HPV. Current treatments include procedures, such as cryotherapy, conization, and the Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP). These procedures use liquid nitrogen, a surgical knife (scalpel), a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, or electrical current to remove the abnormal growths caused by the HPV. These growths include cells that harbor the active virus. The procedures do not target cells with the latent virus. Since they do not remove the latent virus, these procedures only produce a temporary remission. (3) In contrast, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR were designed to target the latent HPV.

We believe that vaccinated and non-vaccinated women, concerned about HPV, should ask their doctors about Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR. The formula of these natural products was shown to safely and effectively reduce HPV symptoms in two post-marketing clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. – Greg Bennett, CBCD
