Dr Caroline Chang | Sun Safety | July 11th 2018 | MD for Moms Radio

Photo attribution: Every Wednesday 1pm (ET) on The BBM Global Network, TuneIn and iHeartRadio or as a podcast on iTunes. This week on MD for Moms, I'll be interviewing Rhode Island dermatologist Dr Caroline Chang about sun safety. We will explore ways to keep skin protected while still enjoying the outdoors, and Dr Chang will explain why being careful when it comes to sun exposure is so imperative. Do you know which sunscreens are best and which are hype? Does spending extra money on sunscreen make a difference, and are sprays really so bad (they sure make life easier as a parent)? Did you know that insect repellent impacts sunscreen efficacy, so one should go on first - you'll have to listen to find out if sunscreen should go on before or after bug spray. Additionally, what medications change the way skin reacts to sun exposure and what can be done to prevent resultant bad sunburns? Do lasers help reduce the negative impact sun has on the skin? Plus, should laser treatments be done in the summer? These are only a few of the many topics we will delve into on this week's show.

Have a question for Dr. Caroline Chang about sun safety?

She received her medical degree in 2003 and completed her internship at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Brighton, MA, and then she completed her residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Rusk Institute at New York University in 2007. During her time in residency, she served as Chief Resident at the Manhattan Veteran's Administration and served on the NYU House Staff Council. She then returned to her alma mater, the University of Florida, for fellowship training in spine, sports and pain medicine, completing her training in 2008. This is also where her interest in regenerative medicine, specifically prolotherapy, started. For nearly the last 10 years, Dr. Moon has practiced outpatient spine and pain management with an extensive background and experience in treating chronic low back pain and joint pain with traditional steroid injection therapy and medication management. During her time treating chronic pain, her interest in regenerative medicine grew. She knew she wanted to focus more on fixing and healing chronic pain issues. Dr. Moon's treatment focused more on finding safer, more natural, and alternative options to address not only chronic pain but also men and women’s sexual health struggles, as well as cosmetic issues like fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Hence, NuMoon Regenerative Medicine was born. Through regenerative medicine and focusing on a more natural approach, Dr. Moon utilizes the body’s means of natural healing through the use of prolotherapy, PRP and stem cell treatments along with exercise and physical therapy. She is an associate member of the American Academy of Regenerative Medicine and has undergone prolotherapy training via the Hackett-Hemwall-Patterson Foundation. Dr. Moon is available to educate patients on alternative options for chronic low back pain or joint pain as well as coach and offer treatment options for those wishing to avoid or reduce chronic narcotic pain medication use. She also offers educational sessions, motivational coaching, and recommendations on leading a healthier lifestyle. She enjoys educating those interested in learning more about safer, healthier options to restore function back to painful joints, tendons, and overall our aging bodies via the treatments of regenerative medicine. In her free time, Dr. Moon enjoys spending time with her husband and young daughter, traveling near and far, exercise, and photography.">Newest approaches to looking and feeling our best Wed. 1-2pm ET: 866-451-1451 call us live! w/host Dr. Carly Snyder.

Dr. Dalilah Restrepo | Ticked Off | May 30th 2018 | MD for Moms Radio

This week on MD for Moms, I'll be interviewing NYC Infectious Disease specialist Dr. Dalilah Restrepo about common summer infections and what to do about them. Summer means being outdoors, playing in the grass or sand, and having fun. But, being in nature also means exposure to ticks and mosquitos, which can carry diseases. What can parents do to reduce the chance of a tick bite, and how can we safely get rid of that tick if it’s stuck on our little one? What are common signs and symptoms of Lyme disease and what should we do if anyone in the family might have it? We will also explore the current Zika situation and where we can travel safely at this point, along with much more.
