Janelle Gardiner provides expert information on asthma in this article and video on the CBS-TV website out of Salt Lake City, UT. “It’s treatable and we have things we can do to help asthma,” she was quoted as saying.

Danny Van Ranken gets a big thank-you from his hospital’s first pulmonary rehab patient in this article in the Kearney, NE, Hub. “I have to give the good Lord and Danny credit for getting me healthy. Without them, I wouldn’t be enjoying life,” 86-year-old Warren Schomburg was quoted as saying.

Jane Martin talks about women and COPD in this article on “COPD is still considered a man’s disease,” she was quoted as saying. “Women may not be seeking optimal treatment because they’re not considering that they may have it—and some physicians are probably doing the same.”

William Pollard has spent the last two years uncovering the history of his Florida neighborhood and now he’s getting ready to publish a book with the results, reports an article in Highlands Today out of Tampa, FL. “Mr. Pollard is doing a real service by spotlighting these homes and their intrinsic and actual value,” Sebring Historical Society archivist Carol Goad was quoted as saying.

RT student Brianna Koch credits a local non-profit center for adolescent parents for helping her get her life back on track after a teen pregnancy in this article and video on the Tucson, AZ, News Now website. “I’m so thankful. I don’t think I would be where I’m at right now if it weren’t for MCAP,” she was quoted as saying.

Debbie Farnham expresses her concerns about an e-cigarette giveaway program launched in her city in this article and video on the Fargo, ND, Valley News Live website. “They’re trying to market them in a sense that it’s going to help people stop using tobacco. Unfortunately that’s not happening,” she was quoted as saying. “We’re getting a lot more starting up or trying and that number has really increased again with no idea of what the safety is of them or what they’re inhaling.”
