National DNA Day is a holiday celebrated on April 25.
It commemorates the day in 1953 when James Watson, Francis Crick, Maurice Wilkins, Rosalind Franklin and colleagues published papers in the journal Nature on the structure of DNA. Furthermore, on that day in 2003 it was declared that the Human Genome Project was very close to complete, and “the remaining tiny gaps [we]re considered too costly to fill.”
In the United States, DNA Day was first celebrated on April 25, 2003 by proclamation of both the Senate and the House of Representatives. However, they only declared a one-time celebration, not an annual holiday. Every year from 2003 onward, annual DNA Day celebrations have been organized by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), starting as early as April 23 in 2010, April 15 in 2011 and April 20 in 2012. April 25 has since been declared “International DNA Day” and “World DNA Day” by several groups.

Health care today depends largely on whether or not the primary care physician has all the answers. With more than 13,000 known diseases and disorders, it is highly unlikely for any one doctor to know every possible condition associated with every set of symptoms. CrowdMed’s new approach has proven that a large group can be smarter than any one individual or even an expert, as long as the collective wisdom is adequately captured, aggregated and analyzed. By empowering both medical experts and patients through an easy-to-use online service, CrowdMed helps diagnose medical issues faster and more accurately – not only improving outcomes, but saving lives.

A Conversation with the Editor-in-Chief of the national trade publication in Concierge Medicine (Concierge Medicine Today) sits down with CrowdMed CEO and Founder, Jared Heyman (www.CrowdMed.com) By empowering both medical experts and patients through an easy-to-use online service, CrowdMed helps diagnose medical issues faster and more accurately – not only improving outcomes, but saving lives. The biggest flaw in today’s healthcare system is the expectation that one doctor has all of the answers. CrowdMed provides the solution to this. We have created one online destination that hosts a worldwide community of Medical Detectives, each with a unique set of medical knowledge, and collectively forming an incredibly well-rounded medical mind.
Sense About Science is a charity that helps people make sense of science and evidence and promotes use of evidence in public life. This takes us from responding to outlandish diet claims by celebrities to helping parents understand vaccines. From working with people with chronic diseases, to beat misleading ‘cure’ claims on the internet. To pressing for sound use of statistics in media reporting.

Dr. Evan Allen is an internationally recognized, award-winning Family Practice physician. Despite decades of experience, he continues to seek out the latest scientific findings and incorporate them into his medical practice, to the benefit of his patients. He is highly regarded by both patients and colleagues as a knowledgeable and personable doctor, and has received numerous awards over his lifetime of achievement.
In 2011, Doctor Evan Allen was diagnosed with hepatic steatosis (an increased buildup of fat in the liver — also known as fatty liver). Thus began his research studying various foods and their effects upon the body. His research confirmed his theory that some foods promote disease while other foods heal. He changed his diet. After six months, he lost 50 lbs. The fatty liver was gone, and the cough and wheezing he had suffered daily dissipated.
Since his personal discovery, his passionate pursuit of excellent health via good nutrition has never waned. He has taken extensive additional training in lifestyle medicine and is a member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM). He will be taking the exam for the American Board of Obesity Medicine in December 2016. He takes pride in providing education and support to his patients and celebrates with them the resulting improvement in their health.
