Forbes interviews Matthew Robbins, M.D., about his research that finds headache during pregnancy may indicate complications, including preeclampsia. Dr. Robbins notes that because many symptoms of migraine overlap with those of preeclampsia, including nausea, vomiting and visual change, it is important for pregnant women to follow up regularly with their provider if experiencing any of these symptoms. Dr. Robbins is associate professor of clinical neurology at Einstein and director of inpatient services at Montefiore Headache Center. (Thursday, August 20, 2015)

USA Today interviews Dr. David Rosenstreich about research that finds poverty and poor living conditions are the causes of high rates of asthma – whether in cities or suburbs. As the concentration of poverty has increased in suburbs and rural areas, so have the rates of asthma in those areas. Dr. Rosenstreich points out that the asthma rates are vastly different in Harlem compared to the Upper West Side of Manhattan, although the two neighborhoods are next to each other. This reinforces that it is low socioeconomic status and associated poor living conditions that leads to asthma. Dr. Rosenstreich is professor and director of the division of allergy and immunology in the department of medicine at Einstein and Montefiore Medical Center and the Joseph and Sadie Danciger Distinguished Scholar in Microbiology/Immunology at Einstein.
