Don’t let seasonal allergies sideline your favorite activities this fall. But before you hop on that hayride, know that ragweed pollen is in the air, and mold is lurking in that leaf pile.
What is hay fever?
Hay fever is an allergic reaction to plant pollen. In fall, ragweed pollen is the main culprit.
Why do allergies bother some people more during the fall?
Ragweed flowers begin to mature in late summer, releasing billions of pollen grains into the air. If you’re outdoors, pollen settles on your skin, hair and clothing, and when inhaled, it can cause the misery we call hay fever.

Perspectives: Tell us about the XP ACL Preserving Knee. What makes it different from traditional knee replacement?
Dr. Oni: It preserves all four major ligaments of the knee. Traditional knee replacement (TKR) removes the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) alone, or the ACL and the PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) together. These two ligaments (ACL and PCL) work together with two other ligaments to stabilize the knee, therefore when they are sacrificed, the biomechanics of the knee can be significantly altered. Many traditional TKR patients complain that their joint replacement does not feel as natural as their native knee. The goal of the XP ACL Preserving Knee is one step in the direction of helping to recreate that normal feeling after total knee replacement.
When the folks at MossRehab sat down to redesign their website, they faced a difficult challenge: How to help patients and their family members easily navigate to the services they need during a highly stressful moment in their lives.
MossRehab, part of the Einstein Healthcare Network, ranks among the best in the nation for rehabilitating traumatic injuries, including injuries to the brain and spine, strokes and amputations. Prospective patients and, often, their family members, need to know they are choosing a physical rehabilitation facility they can trust based on more than pictures.
Draped in a glittering blue gown, Alysse Einbender glided across the Eakins Oval stage overlooking the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, performing with a precision troupe of dancers that had been accorded a singular honor—leading off the Festival of Families welcoming Pope Francis to Philadelphia.
Einbender, a former patient at MossRehab and advisory board member, suffered a spinal stroke in 2004 and is paralyzed from the waist down. When we last met her, she had momentarily abandoned her wheelchair for a specially adapted surfboard, coasting through the waves off Wildwood, N.J. as part of the program They Will Surf Again. This past Saturday at the festival, she was showing off yet another talent as a member of the American DanceWheels Foundation (ADF) formation team. American DanceWheels Foundation adapts traditional Ballroom and Latin dance steps, leads, and holds for both standing and wheelchair-seated dancers.
Walk or run for a little over three miles. Gain the satisfaction of knowing you are helping to promote early detection of lung cancer—the main cause of cancer death in the United States, and the second most common cancer in the nation. (And get a nifty T-shirt, too.)
Join Team Einstein Sunday, November 1, at the 10th Annual Philadelphia Free to Breathe 5K Run/Walk, which steps off from Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park. The event starts at 8 a.m., and is sponsored by Einstein Healthcare Network. Free to Breathe is “a partnership of lung cancer survivors, advocates, researchers, healthcare professionals and industry leaders.”
Q: How long have you worked at Einstein?
A: 20 years.
Q: What does “More than Medicine” mean to you?
A: It means the science of medicine combined with the compassion of medicine and the education of medical students and residents all combined into one.
Q: What gets you excited about coming to work at Einstein?
For the second year, Einstein Healthcare Network's Sports Medicine Program is proud to be the official source of in-depth injury analysis for the 2015 football season on the Eagles Radio Network, featuring sports medicine expert Dr. Rosemarie Boehm and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Brett Sweitzer.
This week, as the Eagles prepare for the New York Jets, Dr. Sweitzer comments on the recent hamstring injury to Eagles inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks.
Bernadette and Friends
Bernadette Rahatt usually procrastinated about making appointments for medical tests, but when her primary care doctor advised her to undergo preventative screening for lung cancer, she promptly followed up. Rahatt, 64, a longtime smoker who had quit in 2010 following a stroke, scheduled a free screening at Einstein.
It was a good thing she did. Even though Rahatt looked and felt fine, a low-dose CT scan—a form of X-ray imaging that provides detailed cross-section pictures of the body—strongly suggested that she had lung cancer, albeit in its early stages.
Happily, early detection made all the difference in the world for Bernadette, leading to life-saving surgery at Einstein—and Rahatt could not be more thankful.
More than a lot of people, Einstein Healthcare Network vice president and chief nurse executive Ric Cuming, EdD, MSN, RN, CNOR, NEA-BC, knows fully well the impact heart disease has on human life.
“As a nurse, I worked many years in the coronary care unit/medical ICU,” he says, “and then I moved into the operating room and joined the open heart surgery team.”
But one day last December, heart disease really hit home.
“My best friend Gary passed away from a massive heart attack. He died at 56, about four months short of his 57th birthday. To make matters worse, his partner of 32 years, Mike, came home to find him in the bathroom.”
So when the Philadelphia Heart Walk 2015 steps off Saturday, November 7, at Citizens Bank Park, Cuming—part of a team of Einstein executives—will have a bit of extra motivation: “I’m walking for Gary.”
