EVER AM I surprised, these days, to learn news from unexpected sources.

When I get a slick-paper news letter from The Center for Women’s Healthcare at Weill Medical College of Cornell University,I pay attention.

Not just because of the contents,but because the return address is a post office box in Big Sandy, Texas.

The subtitle to the news letter is “Helping women over 50 make informed health decisions.”

The Strategic Fulfillment Group based in Big Sandy services organizations that are located all over the world, as I have often mentioned in this space.

IT SAYS IN part about the Cornell Center:

Founded in 1898, the world-famous Weill Medical College of Cornell University is a magnet for outstanding clinicians, scientists, researchers and talented young doctors in training.

Since 1983, Cornell has been home to the annual Symposium on Women’s Health, inaugurated on the 100th anniversary of the birth of Cornell’s Dr. George Papanicolaou, whose Pap test for cervical cancer has saved countless women’s lives. In 1994, The Center for Women’s Healthcare opened its doors, paving the way to the creation of Women’s Health Advisor.

CORNELL’S vast resources include, to name just a few of the facilities:

The Coronary Risk Reduction Program

The Center for Reproductive Medicine and Infertility (with one of the highest In Vitro Fertilization success rates in the world)

The nation’s largest Geriatric Psychiatric Inpatient Service

The Eating Disorders Center

Stroke Research Center

The Nutrition Information Center and The Calcium Information Center

The NY Hospital-Cornell Breast Center, at the forefront of the battle to prevent and cure breast cancer

The Stich Radiation Therapy Center, a premier cancer treatment,teaching and research facility

The Cancer Prevention Center

The Cosmetic Dermatology Unit

Bloodless Medicine-Surgical Program

JUST ABOUT everything is listed except the geographic location of Cornell’s main campus. If memory serves, it’s in Ithaca, New York.

But, I had to check that out. And it’s definitely true.
