IN THIS ISSUE

Hello, and welcome to another issue of Lehigh County Health
and Medicine. We hope you have enjoyed our prior issues and
found them educational. We look forward to hearing your
responses and ideas, and we welcome your contributions.
In our fall issue you will find articles on a range of health issues,
including lead levels in children, physical fitness for children,
direct primary care and how it may benefit you, and protecting
your hearing for National Protect Your Hearing Month.
New to this issue, and leading off its content, is a special section
on non-profits. We reached out to several in our area to hear about
what they do and how they benefit our community. We have an
inspirational story from the Cancer Support Community of the
Greater Lehigh Valley, and another from the National Alliance
on Mental Illness. Learn more about these organizations, and
the important work they do.

BRUCE D. NICHOLSON, MD

Lehigh County Medical Society President

You'll also find an article on the benefits of breastfeeding, and
information on the $26.5 million in federal grants Pennsylvania
received to combat opioid abuse. We have an article for National
Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month. And, while the month
of October promotes various health topics, did you know that
World Arthritis Day, World Spine Day, World Pediatric Bone and
Joint Day, and World Osteoporosis Day all occur in this month?
You'll hear from the president of Lehigh County Medical
Society that medical marijuana can help with the opioid addiction
epidemic, and there also is an opinion piece on healthcare and
the Affordable Care Act.
Check out our Practice Management section for information
on PAMED's new Care Centered Collaborative and how it may
help with your medical practice. And, from the AMA, we bring
you a piece on physician burnout. Also, don't miss the pieces
on our most recent Humaneness in Medicine award and the 41
physicians' awards.
Thank you for reading, and we look forward to our next issue!
