(Sal) met so many pre-med majors at UMM, so I decided to do a website dedicating to these folks and those already in the job market. I chose to do this today (Friday, April 9th of 2004) after I got this e-mail story (down below).
Famous Rochester Mayo Hospital Morris Link
I just had an interesting conversation this morning (Wednesday, February 2nd 2005) after this weekly bible studying going-on at Prairie Community Services. I talked to the C.E.O. about his cousin-Keith Lindor, who was in the Morris Sun Tribune last week for his new position as Dean of Rochester Mayo Medical School. Dennis ended up sharing about many cool stories of his cousin's international experience (including the Philippines).
"The sale of amygdalin-based apricot seeds was very profitable for Vale and for a variety of other herbalists and naturopathic doctors who offered it to cancer victims who were frantically searching for the magic bullet that would prolong their lives. "

A little girl went to her bedroom and pulled a glass jelly jar from its
hiding place in the closet. She poured the change out on the floor and
counted it carefully. Three times, even. The total had to be exactly
perfect. No chance here for mistakes. Carefully placing the coins back
the jar and twisting on the cap, she slipped out the back door and made
her way 6 blocks to Rexall's Drug Store with the big red Indian Chief
above the door. She waited patiently for the pharmacist to give her some
attention but he was too busy at this moment.
Tess twisted her feet to make a scuffing noise. Nothing. She cleared her
throat with the most disgusting sound she could muster. No good. Finally
she took a quarter from her jar and banged it on the glasscounter. That
And what do you want?" the pharmacist asked in an annoyed tone of voice.
I'm talking to my brother from Chicago whom I haven't seen in ages," he
said without waiting for a reply to his question.
"Well, I want to talk to you about my brother," Tess answered back in
same annoyed tone. "He's really, really sick... and I want to buy a

"His name is Andrew and he has something bad growing inside his head and
my Daddy says only a miracle can save him now. So how much does a
"We don't sell miracles here, little girl. I'm sorry but I can't help
you," the pharmacist said, softening a little.
"Listen, I have the money to pay for it. If it isn't enough, I will get
the rest. Just tell me how much it costs."
The pharmacist's brother was a well dressed man. He stooped down and
asked the little girl, "What kind of a miracle does your brotherneed?"
don't know," Tess replied with her eyes welling up.
"I just know he's really sick and Mommy says he needs an operation.
But my Daddy can't pay for it, so I want to use my money."
"How much do you have?" asked the man from Chicago.
"One dollar and eleven cents," Tess answered barely audibly."And it's
all the money I have, but I can get some more if I need to."
"Well, what a coincidence," smiled the man. "A dollar and eleven
cents---the exact price of a miracle for little brothers."
He took her money in one hand and with the other hand he grasped her
mitten and said "Take me to where you live. I want to see your brother
your parents. Let's see if I have the kind of miracle you need."
That well dressed man was Dr. Carlton Armstrong, a surgeon, specializing
neuro-surgery. The operation was completed without charge and it wasn't
long until Andrew was home again and doing well.
Mom and Dad were happily talking about the chain of events that had led
them to this place. "That surgery," her Mom whispered. "was areal
miracle. I wonder how much it would have cost?" Tess smiled. She knew
exactly how much a miracle
cost... one dollar and eleven cents ...... plus the faith of a little

"Following on the heels of his Palm d'Or winning 'Fahrenheit 9/11' and his Oscar winning film Bowling for Columbine, acclaimed filmmaker Michael Moore's new documentary sets out to investigate the American healthcare system. Sticking to his tried-and-true one-man approach, Moore sheds light on the complicated medical affairs of individuals and local communities."
Related Sites: Wikipedia "...The history of health care debate in the U.S. is explained, with the stance against universal health care systems set against the backdrop of 1950s-style anti-communist propaganda. A 1960s record distributed by the American Medical Association and narrated by Ronald Reagan is cited, which claimed universal health care could lead to communism. Moore cites examples such as the American police, fire service, postal service, public education and community libraries, which are said to be "socialized" services and have not led to communism. Further evidence of the origins of the Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973 are presented using a taped conversation between John Ehrlichman and President Richard Nixon on February 17, 1971; Ehrlichman is heard telling Nixon that "...the less care they give them, the more money they make", a plan that Nixon remarked "appeals to me". This led to the expansion of the modern HMO-based health care system. Connections are highlighted between Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), the lobbying arm of the largest drug companies in the United States, lobbying groups in Washington D.C., and the United States Congress. Hillary Clinton, who once championed the Clinton health care plan, is cited as the Senate's second-highest recipient of health care industry campaign donations..." Sicko Is Socko, from Time Magazine Saturday, May. 19, 2007 By RICHARD CORLISS "..Like most docu-dramatists, Moore loves to show the tears of those screwed by the System; in Sicko, at least seven interviewees start crying as they describe the lack of attention their maladies got. And when they're not getting misty over the inhumanity of it all, you may — when you see surveillance footage of mentally disoriented outpatients from the high-end University of Southern California hospital who are put in a cab and dumped near an L.A. Skid Row homeless facility when their coverage runs out...."
"At the invitation of Samaritan's Purse, HCJB Global Hands sent a medical team.
The three Ecuadorian medical doctors, all based at the ministry's Hospital Vozandes-Quito, include Galo Nuñez, director of the family medicine residency, Amparo Torres and intern Marco Yanez. HCJB's director of Vozandes Community Development Dr. Brad Quist is being assisted by Dr. Steve Nelson whose wife, Dorothy, is overseeing women and children's ministries while Ralph Kurtenbach is helping in communications and logistics. ...
It's the area's worst flooding in 40 years. The floods forced about a million people to flee. David Torres, team leader for the Disaster Assistance Response Team from Samaritan's Purse, said he is grateful for the help coming from HCJB Global Hands...
Quist says their team is dealing with the unseen needs by extending the hope of the Gospel. "They've lost their sense of direction in life. In fact, the public health authorities have reported a spike in suicide attempts and suicides in the area. We've been able to meet with people and talk with them about their losses, encourage them, pray with them, and encourage them to find their meaning in Jesus Christ...."
Healing in a Holy Land
"A Lutheran Missions Hospital treats Christians, Jews, and Muslims in the Holy Land, doing their part to heal both bodies and souls."
"...According to published reports, the International Red Cross will be increasing its medical program by more than 50 percent to prevent the collapse of the country's health care system. Two years of flooding and a year of drought have contributed to a public health disaster in the making.
...International Aid's Mark Heydenburg says they're partnering with a group that has been granted access because of their medical work. On this trip, the team focused on improving the inadequacy at some of the hospitals. "Not one of the hospitals out of the four I visited had running water. Can you imagine not having restroom facilities in a hospital? Not one of these hospitals had running water, and most of them only had sporadic power of about three hours a day."
