The sign-up sheet went around again for the upcoming Service Club Luncheon on Oct. 27th (there will not be a regular lunch at the Elks club that day). It is at the Meridian, same place it has been in the past and it runs from 11:30a.m. to 1p.m. Sign up if you want to go because the club has to pay for your lunch.

Rick Jacobus is starting his announcements about the upcoming Freedom Week to be held Tuesday, Feb.21st. We have a couple more schools this year ( 7 ) and the cost to the club has gone up, both in meal cost and per school.

A meeting was held last week after the Board Meeting to discuss a Poker Tournament. Bill Benton says it will happen sometime in late January.

At the Board Meeting today, we asked for ideas for this year’s Christmas Party. Do we want an adult only party, a party with adults & kids? How about holding it at the Elks club? Do we want a $10 gift exchange???? What about a band or DJ, what type of music (one idea was 40’s music). We need ideas of what YOU want so write down some ideas and give them to the President.

Remember, if you bring in a new member and he stays 6 months, you get Free Dues - per new member for a quarter. A couple members just qualified for this perk.


news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:    Mr. “It was a dark and stormy night” Phil Grimm came once again to tell us a bit about his life. It was a dark and stormy night (or day) on November 18, 1934, at Porters Hospital, when Phil Grimm decided to come into the world, backwards. The Dr’s at that time weren’t real sure how to deal with this kind of birth so they needed some help. Phil attended Lincoln Elementary, Grant Jr. High and Englewood Sr. High, graduating in 1952. He then took Pre-Dental at DU for one year and participated in Air Force ROTC and dated a WAC.

At about this time, he met Marlys (who had Cheerleader legs), a Dental Assistant for Phil’s Uncle and in 1953, they were married. They have 3 kids and 4 grand kids. He was brought into the club by Bill Anderson and Bill Parchen. In 2002/2003, Phil was the club President after going through most of the chairs.

Phil started his working career doing summer jobs like building a house, shoveling up to 20 tons of manure a day and buffing cars. In 1957 he went into the sign business and retired from it in 2001. Now he plays tennis, golf and cards to stay busy. Listen to Phil Grimm.mp3

Program:  Bob Schlageter introduced Dr. Brahma Sharrma and his talk today is on: Adverse Drug Reactions

Follow along with the PDF file: Brahma's PGx Presentation.pdf

Do you know if the drugs you are taking, maybe leading you to the path of Adverse Drug Reaction?
Ask your doctor right away, "Doctor, I need that DNA test". This Pharmacogenetics (PGx) Test will help your doctor from guessing and 'Trial & Error' to "Right Drug. Right Dose. Right Indication. Right Patient. Right Time."

Doctors now have tools to provide dynamic therapeutic management services as a part of standard care of their patients. It's a Win-Win for both doctors and patients.

Every Doctor. Every Patient.

Genetically, we are all different and we also metabolize medication differently. Yet, 'one-size-fits-all' option for doctors can create Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR). In fact, over 100,000 people die every year due to ADR. That is one Jumbo jet full of 300 people crashing every day for a year. ADR is 4th leading cause of death. Any other industry would have been shut down long time ago by the US Congress.

The FDA reports over $136 Billion a year cost due to ADR.

Pharmacogenetics (PGx) testing is here to help health providers to determine whether the patient is Poor Metabolizer (PM), Intermediate Metabolizer (IM), Extensive Metabolizer (EM) or Ultra Rapid Metabolizer (UM) for the drug they are about to prescribe.

The AMA calls it "The Future of Medicine". Vanderbilt calls it "Personalized Medicine." Cornell/Columbia call it "Precision Prescribing."

I educate doctors how to implement PGx Testing in their practice to eliminate 'Trial & Error'.
"Right Drug, Right Dose, Right Indication, Right Patient. Right Time."

I'm also an author of upcoming book, "Doctor, I Need That DNA Test." Tomorrow's Medicine Today.
