“COVID-19 Unleashes Telemedicine Innovations:
New Paradigms for Delivering Patient Care”
The arrival of COVID-19 and the pandemic-generated distancing protocols necessitated by it --- have forced a rapid departure from standard medical practice as we have known it: indefinite postponements of elective surgeries; cancellations of routine screenings, lab work, dental care; and elimination of face-to-face, hands-on contact with our cherished family physicians. All replaced, at least for now, by an unfamiliar world of Chat Bot screening tools; algorithm-based query agents like Vicki Vanguard; and remote patient monitoring (RPM) regimens for performing our own self-guided evaluations, under the direction of PA Navigators. On May 12th, our panel of physicians will take us into this unfolding telehealth world and advise how we can get the most from these evolving technologies, with all their attendant pros & cons. They will also address how this is transforming their respective medical practices --- and reconfiguring the doctor-patient relationship.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery: A Transformation in Managing Neurologic Disease --- From Operating Room to Outpatient Treatment
Stereotactic radiosurgery, the ability to precisely target lesions with focused radiation beams, is advancing the treatment of neurologic disease. Complex lesions deep within the brain, which once required high-risk surgeries, can now be treated in a non-invasive manner and on an outpatient basis. This has been a boon to patients with: brain tumors; vascular lesions; the movement disorders of Parkinson’s Disease and essential tremor; and pain conditions, such as trigeminal neuralgia --- resulting in vastly improved quality-of-life. While advances in computer processing and memory storage/retrieval speeds drove some of these breakthroughs, others came from progress in the fields of: neural networks and neuroanatomy; physics; radiology and robotics. Our speaker will describe these rapidly-evolving surgical approaches and their prospects for future use in treating myriad diseases, including psychiatric disorders.

Princeton Diversity Discussion, February 21
Please join us at our next Princeton Diversity Discussion, hosted by Marita Martiney on Friday, February 21, 2020, at 6 pm, at Surf Taco Coastal Cuisine in the Princeton Shopping Center, 301 North Harrison Street. (Note this is the evening before Alumni Day.) Free parking is available. Order individually, pay at the counter, and join us at the tables inside; or feel free to come for the conversation without eating. Remember to wear your orange and black so we can find one another! RSVPs are not required, but may be sent to Jenny Korn '96.
Princeton Diversity Discussions is a monthly series of friendly and inclusive gatherings supported by the Association of Black Princeton Alumni (ABPA), Association of Latino Princeton Alumni (ALPA), Asian American Alumni Association of Princeton (A4P), Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3), Princeton Association of Delaware, Princeton Association of New York City (PANYC), Princeton Club of Washington (PCW), Princeton Club of San Diego (PCSD), Princeton Association of New England (PANE), and Princeton Club of Chicago (PCC).

Open to *everyone* (affiliated and not with Princeton) who would like to discuss race-related issues in person,. We invite alumni, students, staff, family, friends, and everyone you think is groovy to join us! So far, we have teamed up with the Duke Black Alumni Association, Harvard Women in Design, and the Harvard Kennedy School's Women's Network to co-host discussions. Hosting involves no financial commitment, only a commitment to selecting a date in the calendar and to choosing a restaurant that the host digs.
