Thanksgiving surprise: they didn’t vomit

Play Download media

Dave loves all Short Coats--he's like a benevolent god, except without any godly powers or omniscience but with plenty of love. However, he does like to put people in iffy situations, which is why he and his wife Christine fired up the Short Coat Test Kitchen to create Golden Thanksgiving Perfection Salad for the co-hosts. Perfection not included, but Gabe Conley, Claire Casteneda, and noobs Erik Kneller and Nick Evans don't hate it. While they enjoy that, listener Rachel messaged us on Facebook to suggest we discuss the latest news in chronic traumatic encephalopathy research, in which former NFL player Fred McNeill is the first to have had a PET scan before his death, which means there is now evidence that PET scans can be used as a diagnostic tool for CTE. Speaking of research, Dave pops a quiz from tweets on #weirdresearch. A 7-year-old boy has had 80% of his skin replaced with close to 1 square meter of skin genetically engineered from his own cells...and he's doing great! And another genetic engineering first will soon bear fruit (or fail) for a man who is the first to have had his DNA engineered from within as a treatment for Hunter syndrome. Do you have things for us to talk about? Call us at 347-SHORTCT anytime, visit our Facebook group, or email theshortcoats@gmail.com.

Dave has been noticing a certain mid-semester droopiness among some students at the College of Medicine. Perhaps, he conjectured, we all need a bit of a pick-me-up.

Med School Medicine vs. Real World Medicine

In Iowa and many other states, migrant workers are a big part of the economy. Many of these people don't have time for and can't afford regular medical care. But leaving them without care isn't an option, either. Fortunately, there are organizations which engage with this population. The Carver C...
