+ZDogg MD is revolutionizing the doctor / patient relationship! 

Please take a moment to watch his +TEDMED video below! I was privledged enough to attend #HealtheVoices15  this weekend, sponsored by Janssen BioTech and +Everyday Health. His talk was AMAZING and I'm completely understating that! 
+ZDoggMD appears at #HealtheVoices15

I plan on writing many blog posts over the next couple of days recapping my experience from this weekends HealtheVoices15 conference hosted by Janssen Biotech​ and +Everyday Health​. In the mean time, I feel like I have to share this AMAZING talk given by Dr. Zubin Damania, also known as +ZDogg MD. Even calling his talk amazing is a complete understatement. 

Dr. Damania is completely changing healthcare and how patients receive healthcare! His work at +Turntable Health in Las Vegas is revolutionizing patient - doctor care! 

Please take a moment to watch his video below where he talks at +TEDMED​. It's very similar to the talk he gave at the conference this weekend. It's 20 minutes long, but I can't stress enough to watch all 20 minutes of it! You won't be disappointed!

What Does #IBD  Mean To You....

I'm sorry +Tonia Hall but that's completely inaccurate. Good bacteria alone can't cure #IBD . Unfortunately, there is no cure for IBD!

+Google Drive App for Windows PC

We have multiple workstations that are shared computers. It appears that when you install Google Drive under one users profile, if another person signs in to the Windows computer ( even after the first profile logged off ) the Google Drive app isn't usable. 

Does anyone know if this is going to change? I would think that this would be possible by now?!?!?!

Oh yes, when the application is installed there is usually an option to make it available to all users on the PC or only the person that installs it.

As Human As The Next Guy....

New ‪#‎IBD‬ blog post on our website by +Stephen Dempster. Listening to our bodies and taking much needed downtime to rest isn't easy. As much as we try to be superheroes living with IBD, we are only human!

This is going to be the ultimate geek battle!!!! I'm happy that +Derek Ross will be representing my side of the geek war! 
Coming to #SXSW the Android vs iOS Fanboy Challenge

On March 16th, I'll be live at Yahoo's Smartphone Fanboy Challenge at SXSW in Austin, Texas. I have been selected to represent the glorious +Matias Duarte in battle against the wretched followers of Jon Ive. I shall do my best to defeat my opponent, an iOS fanboy, by spreading the teachings of our savior. My tools for battle include my Nexus 6, Nexus 7, and my Moto 360.

Have any subtle jabs I should mention? Let me know!

This should be a lot of fun ;)

#Android   #iOS   #PraiseDurate
In less than two weeks, at a certain annual gathering of nerds and hipsters in Austin, Texas, Yahoo Tech is putting on a big production called the Fanboy Smartphone Challenge. Our aim is nothing less than determining, once and for all, which smartphone platform is better, Apple or Android.

There is absolutely nothing worse than watching your child suffer... I know this feeling all too well!!! If you are able to give, please consider doing so! No child should have to suffer!!! 
Help Aiden Get The Help He Needs.....

I remember what it was like when Domenic was at his worst with his ‪#‎IBD‬. We were fortunate though. We were near the #1 Pediatric #IBD center in the world. Other people aren't always as fortunate to be surrounded by the biggest and best.

If you have anything that you can give, please consider helping Robynn and Aiden. I've gotten to know Robynn ( Aiden's Mother ) and I understand her plight all too well. There's nothing worse in this world than watching your child suffer and the feeling of absolute helplessness.
Aiden is my 6yr old son who suffers from Crohns Disease. We recently had the opportunity meet Dr. Remzi from the Cleveland Clinic and he has taken an interest in Aiden's case. For those of you that aren't familiar with Aiden or his diagnosis, here is a brief description.... He starting presenting the with symtpoms at age 1 with diarrhea up to 15 times day, high fevers, vomiting and failure to thrive. His was diagnosed at age 2 with Ulcerative Col...

Please visit my Google+ Page - The Crohn's Colitis Effect

I think my tagline describes me pretty accurately... 

I'm a proud father of two great boys. Domenic is my oldest, who has Crohn's Colitis Disease ( see my Google+ Page for information on it ) and my youngest, Anthony. It might sound cliche to say they are my world, but saying anything less just wouldn't be truthful. 

I truly believe that I'm blessed... I not only have two wonderful boys, but I also have a career that I absolutely love! I've been a Network Engineer for a little over 15 years now and I wouldn't want to be doing anything else! My Father always told me that you know when you've made it when you get out of bed in the morning and can't wait to get to work... Well, that's me! I not only love the type of work I do, but I also love where I do it. I work for a private high school, St. Augustine Prep in Richland, N.J. The best part about my job is that everything I do there, I know I'm impacting the lives of our students, in a positive way, for years to come. 

Are you curious about what circles to put me in?? Well, anyone you want! :) Seriously, I post about a wide range of stuff. Anything and everything that comes to mind.
