A benefit for the Red Cross in Japan

Yoshihiro Ozaki is a second-year osteopathic medicine student. He is a delightful student from Japan. I’ve been lucky enough to meet him and hear him play with the DMU chamber orchestra. He sent the following message around to a few folks on campus and I’d like to share it with you: As you know, Japan […]

Return from Africa…

Summing up an experience of a lifetime isn’t my strong suite. Yet, I’ve been asked to write a little about the medical mission I was a part of this past month and so here is my attempt to do just that. In December of 2009 I learned I had been one of the students selected […]

Friday recipe: chewy fruit & oatmeal bars

I always tend to snack more and crave treats on the weekend so I’ve been looking for healthier things to have available. This one sounds really yummy! I’d swap in applesauce for the oil and omit the salt. The flour could be swapped to make it gluten-free and the dairy items could be switched for […]

It’s Fat Tuesday!

We’re a long way from New Orleans but that doesn’t mean you can celebrate today! I’m going to a pancake party tonight with gourmet treats by Melt Dessert Bar—I’m looking forward to the banana foster pancakes. There’s quite a few pancake suppers at local churches as well. You should at least flip up some flapjacks […]

Now THAT’s a lunch!

Can anything be more satisfying than making your own bread and mayo that does not contain high fructose corn syrup? I think not! This is my go-to bread recipe, but I cut the recipe in half, didn’t use water for the egg white wash, used the Kitchen Aid stand mixer to mix and knead and only […]

Friday recipe: easy muffins

The DMU marketing department’s office is on the fourth-floor of the Academic Center. So when our fellow fourth-floor friends started passing around, modifying and baking a simple, delish recipe for muffins, we figured it was only right to share the goodness. I believe it began in the registrar’s office, moved to financial aid and was […]

This event consists of SOS members cooking a large quantity of food offsite and providing it, with all the […]

Anatomy word of the month: crista galli

The “cock’s comb” is a wedge of bone found on the anterior floor inside of the skull in the midline. The meninges (protective membranes surrounding the brain) are anchored anteriorly at this point. The Latin name for the group of animals including chickens and turkeys is galliformes. Those imaginative ancient anatomists thought that the vertical, […]

Michael & Sheila’s Nepali adventures

Namaste! I’m writing this post after just having spoken to my wife from the other side of the world, in Kathmandu, Nepal. On February 21, DMU posted on Facebook about the Global Health program, and how students have the ability to choose rotations in an international setting. I won’t go into that because I don’t […]
