Information technology has a great potential to aid patient care
and assist medical research, for a variety of diseases, including
leukemia and lymphoma. Smart cards are one of the emerging technologies
that helps advance the modern medical care. A combination of patient
identification with portable and secure data storage provides up-to-date
medical records anywhere at the point of care, helping empower physicians,
reduce medical errors, as well as track medical information, procedures,
prescriptions and treatment plans. At this Pub Talk, Mr. Kruglyak
will discuss the use of smart cards in healthcare, touching upon
the related benefits, such as increasing medical efficiency and
productivity, as well as HIPAA compliance.

FUND-RAISER PUB FOR THE LEUKEMIA & LYMPHOMA
Please join us for a special Pub on August 7th focused on Internet-related
technologies and the advancement of cancer research and treatment.
The Silicon Valley World Internet Center is hosting this special
Pub as a fundraising event to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
and its mission to find a cure for blood-related cancers (http://www.leukemia-lymphoma.org).
Dr. Venilde Jeronimo, the Center's former Senior Director of Client
Services, is a 2003 summer participant with the Society's Team in
Training (TNT) (http://www.teamintraining.org),
the world's largest endurance sports training program. TNT participants
raise money toward cures for leukemia, the leading disease killer
of children; Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, the largest group
of blood cancers; and myeloma, a nearly incurable cancer that strikes
mostly the elderly. Venilde has committed to train to run the Maui
Marathon on September 21 and raise $5,000. Venilde is a survivor
of Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL), initially diagnosed in 1984
with a relapse in 1988 and a surgery in 1995. Of the 19 years she
has dealt with ALL, she's proud to say that she's been in remission
for 8 years and 5 months!
The Center feels strongly that the technology community can play
a vital role in supporting advanced research. This Pub is dedicated
to that spirit.
All donations are 100% tax deductible and go directly to the Leukemia
& Lymphoma Society. Checks (made out to the Society), cash, and
credit cards will be accepted day of event. For more information
