N4P: Should You Go To Law School?

By Shelly Lynn | NFP | November 22nd, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Ann Levine graduated from the University of Miami’s Law School in 1999. Since then, she has helped more than 2,000 law school applicants. Law school is challenging, with a lot of pressure placed on the students to succeed academically. So why does one go to law school? For the money, for the magical $160,000 that recent law school grads made fresh out of school? There is so much good that can be done, actual changes that can be made with a law degree.

N4P: Brian Cuban-Eating Disorders Do Not Discriminate

By Shelly Lynn | NFP | November 15th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Men and body image are usually not associated with each other. More and more we hear about the issue of photo shopping women’s bodies to make them look thinner or in some places bigger. There is a lot of media attention on just how ridiculous the body proportions are supposed to be for females aspiring to that ultimate goal of beauty and really acceptance in society. But what you don’t hear very often are the stories of men who struggle with the same issues of body acceptance. Those men who you’d never assume even think about body image. Brian Cuban talks to Shelly about his experiences with anorexia and bulimia and how he overcame those eating disorders with the right support system. His book, Shattered Image, recounts his life story.

For resources on eating disorders you can head over to the counseling center at the University of Miami or call them at 305 284- 5511

Transplant Foundation is dedicated to assisting patients both during the pre-operative stages and the rehabilitative period, providing financial assistance to cover urgent needs such as transportation, medications, temporary housing at the transplant center and so much more.

Unquestionably, the number of successful transplants is limited by the critical shortage of donors. Transplant Foundation supports ongoing donor education programs to educate the Florida community and encourage organ donation and discussion within families. Transplant Foundation utilizes its Mentor Program, Community Outreach efforts and Education Forums as tools to educate transplant patients and the community about organ donation and transplantation.
