New National Report Sheds Light on Girls' Sports Participation

In recognition of Women's History Month, the Women's Sports Foundation (WSF) released Keeping Girls in the Game: Factors that Influence Sport Participation, a new, national research report examining the social influences on youth entry, retention and drop out from sports. Made possible through a longstanding partnership between WSF and The DICK'S Sporting Goods Foundation, the report provides a greater understanding of sport participation disparities across youth gender, age, race/ethnicity, family socioeconomic background and region, as well as illuminates the attitudes and influence of parents. It also shines an informative, comparison/contrast light on the sports experience for girls versus boys, and provides recommendations to keep more girls in the game.

Based on a national survey of girls and boys (N=3,041) between the ages of 7-17 and their parents (N=3,041), the report uncovered

Expert Medical Societies Release Multidisciplinary Recommendations for Breast Cancer Patient Care During COVID-19 Pandemic

The American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS), the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons, and the American College of Radiology® (ACR®) have released new joint recommendations for prioritization, treatment and triage of breast cancer patients during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“As hospital resources and staff become limited, it is vital to define which breast cancer patients require urgent care and which can have delayed or alternative treatment without changing survival or risking exposure to the virus,” said Jill R. Dietz, MD, FACS, president of the ASBrS.

Why 6 Feet is Not the 'Magical Answer' to Social Distancing

COVID-19 has led many people to rediscover the joys of walking, jogging and bicycling as so many Americans are encouraged to limit travel and to socially isolate. The pandemic has even caused a surge in bike sales across the United States, according to Reuters.

Exercise is good for the body; it’s a way to stay healthy and also a way to relieve stress during these tense times. And one recent study even suggests exercise might help prevent people from contracting COVID-19. There is just one thing wrong with this equation – the math around social distancing and outdoor exercise.

To limit the spread of COVID-19, it has been recommended that people stay 6 feet apart, a distance universally seen as safe enough to prevent virus aerosols, or droplets, from spreading from one person to another.

Rosacea During the COVID-19 Crisis

April is Rosacea Awareness Month. Rosacea, also known as acne rosacea, affects 16 million Americans. It occurs in men, women, all skin tones, and is characterized by facial redness, flushing, sensitive skin, broken blood vessels (telangiectasias), and/or acne-like lesions. Rosacea is best controlled with a combination approach of gentle skincare, prescription medications, laser/light therapy, and minimization of triggers.

Many rosacea patients also have sun damage skin in the form of brown spots (lentigines). The Lumenis M22 intense pulse light (IPL) uses a spectrum of wavelengths of light to simultaneously reduce facial redness, telangiectasias, and lentigines. These treatments have the benefit of minimal to no downtime and are performed in a medical office. Not all IPL devices are created equally and not all can be used safely in patients with Asian, Hispanic, Brazilian, Mediterranean
