Though It’s a common disease with about a million cases a year requiring medical care, it's also easy to mistake for other medical problems. KERA recently spoke with Carolee Estelle, M.D., Assistant Professor at UTSW and Associate Chief of Infection Prevention at Parkland Hospital. http://bit.ly/2CESK4n

When Administrative Associate Monica Lara was searching for a pediatrician for her daughter, Olivia, she didn’t have to look further than her very own internist, UT Southwestern's Jaclyn Albin, M.D., Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Internal Medicine.

Dr. Albin and colleague Jason Newman, M.D., Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, helped establish the Medical Center’s first combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics (Med/Peds) clinical practice and residency program in 2016.

The clinic offers care for the whole family and enables patients to see the same doctors throughout their lives, enhancing continuity of care and providing valuable historical information in more difficult patient cases. http://bit.ly/2BjS1VK

Heather almost skipped her annual mammogram. She was busy. There was no history of breast cancer in her family. And she’d been fine every previous year.
Then her cell phone buzzed with a reminder. Heather followed through with her workplace appointment with UT Southwestern's Mobile Mammography Unit. A few days later, she learned she had abnormal results. She had a lumpectomy followed by radiation treatment.
“I have an excellent prognosis because of the early detection,” said Mrs. Ashby. “Truly, the mobile mammography unit saved my life.” Listen to Heather's story: http://bit.ly/2yYjleq
