Skip redundant pieces



Gary Gronseth, associate professor of neurology and a fellow of the American Academy of Neurology, was instrumental in the development of a new guideline with the academy that recommends surgery for patients who suffer from extreme, electric shock-like pain in their face and do not respond well to drugs. “There are very few drugs with strong evidence of effectiveness in treating trigeminal neuralgia,” said Gronseth, author of the guideline. “If people fail to respond to these drugs, physicians should not be reluctant to consider referring the patient for surgery.”


The Edwards Campus and Johnson County Community College raised more than $13,000 for undergraduate scholarships from their first Start2Finish 5k run-walk July 26. “We are very excited to have cleared such a significant amount of money to be allocated for undergraduate scholarships,” said Bob Clark, vice chancellor. “For a first-time run we were told we’d be lucky to break even. We far exceeded that.”
