Indianapolis-based Adult and Child Center won $2 million from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to improve access to primary care for Americans with serious mental illnesses. Such patients die, on average, 25 years earlier than those without such conditions, according to a 2006 report by the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors. During the four-year project, Adult and Child will have a primary-care physician and nurse care coordinator available to patients at its mental health center. The medical staff will try to address patients with mental illnesses who also suffer from chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity.

A $1.9 million federal stimulus grant will enable the Indiana University School of Medicine's department of family medicine to add two residents a year in the Lafayette area. IU’s family medicine residency program currently accepts 10 doctors annually for post-med-school training as family physicians. The grant will enable the program to add two residency slots in collaboration with Clarian Arnett Health, St. Elizabeth Regional Health and Riggs Community Health Center in Lafayette. IU med school officials hope graduates of the residency program will set up medical practices in and around Lafayette, which like much of Indiana has a shortage of primary-care physicians. The expansion of the residency program will be effective in July 2011.

Lilly Endowment Inc. gave $4 million to Indiana University to help address ethical, legal and social issues involved in the growing sharing and study of health information. IU will create the Center for Law, Ethics and Applied Research in Health Information (CLEAR Health Information). The center also will partner with government, industry and not-for-profit groups in an effort to increase reliability and trust in the use of health information.

Columbus Regional Hospital is suing the Federal Emergency Management Agency to recover $17.1 million in federal funds the hospital claims it is owed due to damages caused by a massive flood. The June 2008 flood, designated a federal disaster, caused $167 million in damages and business-income losses to the hospital, which did not fully reopen until nearly five months later. The suit, filed Sept. 15 in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis, accuses FEMA of violating federal regulations, negligence and misrepresentation for failing to pay the full amount the hospital says it is owed. The flooding from nearby Haw Creek filled the hospital’s basement to the 12-foot ceiling and partially submerged the first floor. Key medical equipment destroyed by the flood included radiology scanners, radiography and fluoroscopy systems, ultrasounds, cardiac-catherization labs, biopsy tables and biochemical analyzers.

IBJ’s "A Night with the Arts"

September 29, 2010

Sept. 30
International School of Indiana   

What’s it like working with one of the legends of contemporary dance—then taking over your own troupe? What does it feel like to be the only actor on stage for an hour-and-a-half play? What’s coming up in the 2010/2011 A&E season that you really need to put on your cultural radar?

Those are just some of the questions that will be answered at this free, open-to-the-public event. Lou Harry, IBJ arts & entertainment editor (that’s me), will discuss the season, interview David Hochoy of Dance Kaleidoscope and Milicent Wright of the Indiana Repertory Theatre, present performances by Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra Principal Contrabassist Ju-Fang Liu and cast members of Actors Theatre of Indiana’s “A Year With Frog and Toad,” and lead audience participation games.

The prizes? Packages from the ISO, Indianapolis Opera, Encore Vocal Arts, Indianapolis Art Center, Actors Theatre of Indiana, Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, Storytelling Arts of Indiana, Dance Kaleidoscope, Indiana Repertory Theatre, the Indiana History Center, Indianapolis Children’s Choir, Cabaret at the Columbia Club, the Phoenix Theatre and more.

And did I mention that food and drink will be provided?

"Holes"

September 29, 2010

Through Nov. 6
Indiana Repertory Theatre

Those buses you see during the day outside the Indiana Repertory Theatre are from the dozens of schools that are making part of their curriculum a trip to the state’s largest regional theater.

And while exposing kids to the art of theater is a wonderful thing to do, I wouldn’t be writing about the IRT’s latest show, “Holes,” unless I thought the show would offer pleasures for grown-ups as well. I’m optimistic that’s the case because the Louis Sachar book is a treat, because the movie adaptation was wonderful, and because Sachar himself wrote the script for the theater version, which has been performed at regional theaters around the country.

Haven’t read or seen it? “Holes” concerns the secrets that are unearthed when an innocent kid is sent to an unusual desert correctional facility. Grown-up cast members include Constance Macy and Ben Tebbe (both last seen at Indy Fringe in ShadowApe’s “Not a Peep”). Details here.

I am, I’ll admit, irrational in my love for Samuel Barber’s “Knoxville Summer of 1915.” With text taken from James Agee’s book “A Death in the Family” (one of the handful that I reread every few years), it sets to music the author’s haunting meditation on mortality, as his narrator recalls idle moments with his family on a summer evening—tempered with the knowledge that all of it, some day, will pass. “By some chance, here they are, all on this earth;” writes Agee, “and who shall ever tell the sorrow of being on this earth, lying, on quilts, on the grass in a summer evening, among the sounds of the night.”

Fewer than half of the physicians who received $1 million or more in consulting fees from orthopedic implant makers—including Warsaw’s Zimmer, Depuy Orthopaedics and Biomet—disclosed the financial ties in subsequent articles they wrote about the industry. That’s the finding of a study published this month in the Archives of Internal Medicine, according to a Bloomberg News report. The study authors focused on 40 orthopedic surgeon researchers who each received more than $1 million from a single orthopedic implant company in 2007. Those doctors published 95 articles related to the companies in 2008, the year following their payments, including studies, reviews and analyses designed to influence the future of patient care, according to the report. Just 44 of their articles disclosed the industry payments at all, and most of those that did merely stated that the author had receive more than $10,000 from the company. In all, five orthopedics companies made 985 payments to doctors for a total of $184 million in 2007 for consulting services, honoraria or assistance related to hip- and knee-replacement and reconstruction, with an average payment of $187,000.

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has received a three-year, $335,309 grant from the National Science Foundation to expand undergraduate research projects in orthopedics. The governmental agency hopes research by engineering students leads to improved, cost effective designs for knee and hip implants. The projects are being conducted through a partnership with Rose-Hulman’s department of applied biology and biomedical engineering and the Joint Replacement Surgeons of Indiana Research Foundation based at the Center for Hip & Knee Surgery in Mooresville.

Biosciences Vaccines Inc., a firm trying to improve vaccines against infectious diseases and cancers, has moved its offices from South Bend to the Purdue Research Park of West Lafayette. Biosciences Vaccines adds its extracellular matrix technology to vaccines to make them work more effectively and at a reduced cost. The technology was licensed from Cook Biotech Inc., which is also based in the Purdue Research Park. Biosciences Vaccines was launched last year and received a $400,000 investment from the Indiana Seed Fund, which is managed by Indianapolis-based BioCrossroads, a life sciences business-development group.

While I’m no fan of the James Cameron movie (it still bugs me that she throws away the necklace rather than, say, endow a hospital), I won’t deny the pull of these objects, each carrying the echo of lives—and an era—lost.

International Violin Competition of Indianapolis

September 22, 2010

Through Sept. 26
Various locations


One of the structural challenges of the finals of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis is that you can’t hear all the contenders on one night. With six finalists needing enough time to play, they are broken into two groups of three. Each group of three performs twice. (Are you following this?) Since the finals started on Wednesday evening—and you are probably reading this on Thursday—you still have three choices of shows. Like Wednesday's offering, Thursday evening features three of the finalists and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra at the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center. Friday and Saturday each feature three with the ISO at the Hilbert Circle Theatre. Details here.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
