    Our first guest today is National Commander of the American Legion Brett P. Reistad, he will be discussing The Nation’s Largest Veterans Organization Observing 100th Birthday and  Memorial Day 2019, Issues Facing America’s Heroes. U.S. Army veteran Brett P. Reistad (rye STAD) was elected the 100th National Commander of The American Legion during the organization’s 100th National Convention on August 30, 2018. A retired lieutenant with the Fairfax County (Va.) Police Department, Reistad was a U.S. Army infantryman from 1974 to 1978 and served with the Presidential Salute Battery of the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) at historic Fort Myer, Va. He participated in the Inaugural ceremony for President Carter and other high-profile events. A member of American Legion Post 270 in McLean, Va., he is leading the nation’s largest veteran’s organization through its centennial year. The American Legion was founded in 1919 by a group of American World War I veterans in Paris, France. “Memorial Day is solemn time to honor the ultimate sacrifices that have been made by American heroes since our nation’s founding,” Reistad said. “But really, the families of these heroes remember the loss of their loved ones every day. The American Legion calls on all Americans to offer their heartfelt support to all Gold Star families. When The American Legion was founded 100 years ago, most Americans believed that World War I was the ‘war to end all wars.’ Sadly, it wasn’t. But from that war came an organization that was built on the four pillars of a strong national defense, care for veterans, patriotic youth programs and Americanism. That organization is The American Legion and we are still dedicated to serving this great nation.” For more information go to:  www.legion.org


    Our next guest is Freda C. Lewis-Hall, MD, DFAPA, she will discuss Controlling our Health.

Dr. Lewis-Hall is co-editor of the book Psychiatric Illness in Women: Emerging Treatments and Research and gives health analysis, tips, and wellness information through the consumer health website, GetHealthyStayHealthy.com



    Dr. Adam Sonabend, MD, director of the Hispanic Brain and Spine Tumor Program at Northwestern Memorial Hospital will discuss the need for this program in the Hispanic and Latino community and the importance of personalized patient care. He will also discuss what makes this program unique and what it will provide to patients. When communicating with medical professionals, whether it is for yourself or on behalf of a loved one, it’s important to have someone that can guide you through the diagnosis and treatment options in your native language. Personalized patient care should not stop at treatment but instead should extend to the point of recognizing cultural differences, how it may influence the individual and family, and most importantly communicating care effectively. Northwestern Medicine is launching a Hispanic Brain and Spine Tumor Program in Chicago that will serve the Hispanic and Latino populations and their family members. Through this program, life-saving neurological care will be more easily accessible by removing cultural, linguistic barriers to patients who’d prefer to speak Spanish during their hospital visit.
