Running head: Kevin Holland Kevin Holland Clostridium difficile is becoming a major problem inside of hospitals. There are many reasons as to why the bacteria is becoming a top priority while treating patients mainly inside of the hospital setting. Hospital-induced infections, lack of a proper diet, and even when people do not perform proper hygiene is causing this bacteria that is considered normal biota, to flourish and cause gastrointestinal distress. Bacteria have spent millions of years growing and their whole goal is to keep doing that.

This topic is important due to the fact that there are so many out there that are active in the LGBT community and others that are still afraid to come out, and all need health care. The Institute of Medicine has conducted an 18 month analysis (which includes an extensive literature review, as well as an outside review by 14 reviewers) of the state of the science on the health status of LGBT populations. This review was done to identify the gaps in research and opportunities to increase the knowledge about the LGBT communities overall health. From the study the Institute of Medicine concluded that “It is the committee’s hope that this report will not only assist NIH in its goal of promoting the nation’s health through research, but also advance the public’s understanding about the health of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people” (IOM,
From the first women 's contraceptive clinic she founded in Brooklyn, Planned Parenthood has grown into over 650 federally funded clinics across the country. The work of Wendy Davis today has been fighting for those clinics and organizations like Planned Parenthood, continuing to progress and educate people on contraception. One subject relating to women 's contraception that Sanger and Davis have different view on is abortion. Sanger spoke openly about being agienst abortion saying contreception is the only solution, today Davis fights constantly against many anti abortion laws that put organizations like Planned Parenthood at risk. The subject of women 's contraception has been a controversial topic ever since it was made legal over one hundred years ago, and today the conversation is more controversial than ever.
Kite Runner Being an immigrant is about leaving one’s native country; but it is also, more importantly, about adapting and assimilating to a new culture. Relocating to a new country could sometimes cause a life-transforming moment. In 2003, when Khaled Hosseini published the mainstream fiction story, “The Kite Runner,” he was an extremely successful M.D. (Medical Doctor) who was practicing internal medicine. Throughout his novel, he describes different characters which possess different characteristics and personalities. As illustrated in the book, Baba and his family moved to the United States to get a better life, and they quickly started to assimilate the American culture.
“In the year 2004, there were approximately 1.37 million abortions performed in the United States” (Chew 143). Since 1973 and even before, abortion has raged into a hot-topic issue among the press, politicians, and even doctors; among many other people. This topic has been disputed since even before the late Nineteenth Century. During the 1940s, it even became a social norm to raid the abortionists’ offices. From that time on, the abortion debate has been brought into light many times.
Those service members that heed their training and have the mental flexibility will help build the military services of the future. Transgender individuals are already serving in the ranks of the armed forces. Getting rid of the recognized obstacles that inhibit transgender personnel from operating as their identified gender, presents them with the identical chance their fellow service members have, will solve the health care offered for their mental and physical needs, and will give our leaders the opportunity to overcome the leadership and logistical difficulties for transgender incorporation into our

The policy for receiving treatment and compensation for PTSD for soldiers in the military during the war ,was that if the soldier experienced symptoms 6 months after their return home it was considered a “transient situational disorder” meaning that it was a pre existing condition which was not eligible for treatment by the United States government. Many veterans survive tour after tour only to come home, back to civilian life, to die from not getting treated for PTSD. This is a major waste of life, because they are not getting the help they deserve from the country that did this to them. Many veterans die, because they do not know how to cope with their unknown illness. PTSD is by no means a falsely diagnosed disorder , and in analyzing accurate perspectives concerning the treatment of PTSD , one can view the disorder in a more truthful and knowledgeable light , as a valid affliction that does and always deserved specific medical attention.
By directly linking Veterans ' physicians in providing explicit information needed to assess their claims will lead to a less backlogging in the assessment and quicker compensation decisions. Another improvement to help eliminate the backlog of disability claims is using technological modernization to reduce time wasted completing paperwork. By going paperless, this will allow the veteran and family member to file their claim online eliminating the mail time to the regional office. All Veteran Affairs examination results should be electronically available to claims adjudicators to assist them in ensuring the receipt of processing claim quickly. Mike Walcoff (2010), the Associate Deputy Undersecretary for field operations, while speaking at a joint hearing before Congress expressed that deploying this new initiative to create paperless claims would simplify and improve the claims processing system.
