Join Me at Methodist Mansfield’s Run with Heart

Posted by Pastor David Alexander on Dec 22, 2016 8:53:40 AM

Featuring guest blogger David Alexander

In the spring of 2005, I joined the pastoral staff at First Methodist Church in Mansfield, and our family had the privilege to move to this great community. We bought a house on the east side of Highway 360 and every day on my way to the church I had the chance to chart the construction progress of the Methodist Mansfield Medical Center, which was opened the following year.

Preparing For The Worst

Posted by Stacy Covitz on Sep 29, 2016 7:30:00 AM

Top trauma surgeons share their experiences at Methodist Dallas’ upcoming trauma symposium.

We all remember where we were on 9/11. We remember hearing and watching the news of the Boston Marathon bombing. And so do the medical teams who treated the many victims. They were the second responders caring for critically-injured patients being brought in by any means possible. That’s why disaster preparedness has become critical for trauma teams across the country, whether natural or manmade, and why it’s the focus of the 16th annual Hobert Trauma and Critical Care Symposium at Methodist Dallas Medical Center.

Falling for Pink at Methodist Charlton

Posted by Stacy Covitz on Aug 4, 2016 8:54:15 AM

In 2016, the non-profit organization estimates there will be 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed in women in the U.S.; 2,600 cases in men. The good news is, there’s a lot of expertise, research, and treatment if you do receive that diagnosis.

Adults Face New Challenges as They Start Living “The Sandwich Life”

Posted by Jerri Locke on Jun 7, 2016 3:42:44 PM

How to manage stress while caring for parents and children at the same time

Growing up, a sandwich normally was two pieces of Mrs. Baird’s bread with a thick layer of peanut butter in the middle or a slab of bologna with a healthy dose of Miracle Whip. Now, sandwiches are multi-layer, complex creations with seemingly unlimited options. But for many people my age, the term “sandwich” has taken on a new meaning, and one that is just as complex.

Posted by Craig Premo on Apr 28, 2016 3:39:44 PM

When you hear people say “laughter is the best medicine,” they are absolutely right. However, the medical benefits of laughter go beyond cheering someone up. Studies have shown time and time again that the physical effects of smiling and laughing can significantly improve our health.

BYOB: Bring your own (teddy) bear and help your kids learn about going to the doctor painlessly

Posted by Calvert Collins-Bratton on Apr 7, 2016 1:01:22 PM

FREE Teddy Bear Clinic on April 16

Going to the doctor can be scary, no matter how old you are. As parents, we’ve likely been to a few dozen doctors’ appointments in our day, but for our young children, a doctor’s office is a foreign place no matter how inviting the waiting room. Once they’ve had a few rounds of routine shots, toddlers remember the nurse who pricked them or the doctor who made them wail. Those experiences don’t instill trust or excitement about a future check-up.

First it was West Nile, then Ebola, and now Zika. Third world viruses are infecting our first world life.
