Study club plans meeting

The Modern Study Club will meet at 3:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 13, at the First Christian Church for their "kick-off" meeting of their new club year.

Catherine Travland who has recently begun her tenure as president for the organization, will preside and present the president's welcome. Travland's theme for the year is, "Seek wisdom and knowledge in the 21st Century."

Presentation of the 2000-2001 Yearbooks will be made and a tape concerning membership and it's benefits will be shown as a part of the program.

Roll call will be answered by giving suggestions for a membership drive. The thought-quote for the meeting is, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and discipline," Proverbs 1:7, KJV.

Project for the bi-monthly meeting is for all members of The Modern Study Club to prticipate in a club program during the year.

More parents need CPR education

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a proven life-saving technique, but many parents still have not learned it.

"CPR is an easy course and there are many studies that demonstrate it saves lives," said Dr. Paul Sirbaugh, assistant professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine.

Sirbaugh recently conducted a study on "bystander CPR use" in which he looked at the cases of 300 children who had lost a pulse. Of those, 25 percent received bystander CPR before emergency medical services arrived. Only 14 percent who lost a pulse in the home received bystander CPR from family members.

"These are not good numbers," said Sirbaugh, adding that CPR courses are readily available in most communities.

Website addresses pain in children

A new website addresses the issues of pain management in children.

"Pain is very undermanaged. Even today, there is a hesitancy to treat young people for pain. A lot of misconceptions exist," said Dr. Marilyn Hockenberry-Eaton, an associate professor of pediatric hematology and oncology at Baylor College of Medicine.

The Texas Children's Cancer Center website, located at, addresses those myths, as well as provides educational information to caregivers on effective pain management in children.

"Cancer Pain Management in Children" is a project founded by the Texas Cancer Council.

Though the website is designed for cancer patient caregivers, it provides information useful for all health professionals and parents.
