Hujambo! That’s Swahili for “greetings.” Geisel medical student Auriel August checks in from Tanzania where she’s working with the DarDar Pediatric Program—and picking up a little Swahili while she’s there. Read more about how she’ll be spending her summer. http://ow.ly/yVvCN

What’s in a word? A lot, according to Geisel researchers William Black and H. Gilbert Welch, who write in The Lancet Oncology that it’s time to change the way physicians use the word “cancer.”

Check out this NYTimes.com article that shows how the work of Jack Wennberg, MD, MPH, Founder and Director Emeritus of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice at Geisel, has influenced the way medicine is practiced. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/01/upshot/what-the-reduction-in-tonsillectomies-teaches-us-about-medicine.html?_r=0
Strict guidelines for how to treat certain conditions in certain patients, and allowing physicians to use their judgment, both have a role.

On June 18, Dr. Susanne Tanski, an associate professor of pediatrics at Geisel and a pediatrician, testified before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation about the risks of e-cigarettes. Tanski is chair of the tobacco consortium of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and she testified on behalf of the AAP. “We are seriously concerned that e-cigarettes may lead adolescents to a lifetime of nicotine addiction and could serve as a gateway to traditional cigarettes,” she said. Watch her testimony.

“Trying to get patients to quit smoking is an important part of our job,” says Philip Goodney, a physician and researcher. A new clinical trial led by Goodney seeks to improve physicians’ ability to do just that.
Over the next year, Dartmouth researchers will carry out a pilot study to determine if a new standardized protocol can help smokers with vascular disease quit smoking.

Earning a master's degree at The Dartmouth Institute helped Dr. Mark Nunlist, a primary care physician in Vermont, look more closely at what his clinic could do to improve the delivery of care.
Mark Nunlist had been a primary care physician for almost 20 years when he became increasingly aware that there was something missing at the busy and well-respected White River Junction, Vt., practice where he was a partner.
