New York City, May 22, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - Being a board-certified allergist and immunologist, Dr. Schwindt's expertise includes the diagnosis and treatment of asthma, environmental and food allergies, eczema, as well as primary immunodeficiencies. She sees pediatric and adult patients for her specialty at Hoag Health Center - Newport Beach in California, which is a part of Hoag Medical Group.

"I love interacting with my patients and empowering them with knowledge and medical care options to create the best care plan for them," expressed Dr. Schwindt.

Upon graduation, she went on to complete her internship, residency, and fellowship training at the St. Louis University Group of Hospitals. 

Since then, she has also been involved with many research projects that focused on understanding the environmental factors that may influence the increase in asthma. "Having allergies can seriously impact the quality of life for patients, from having nasal allergies that make you feel like you have a cold every day to life-threatening food allergies. Controlling and managing these disease states can significantly improve health, well-being, and how one lives their life" explained Dr. Schwindt.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

May 28, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

May 28, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event.

Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...
