Las Vegas police detective Kenny Nogle didn’t contract the hepatitis C on the job. But he is passing on the knowledge he has gained since contracting the virus to warn fellow officers of the risks of infection they face daily.
Dr. Dale Carrison, chief of staff and head of emergency at University Medical Center, grimaced as he dragged his legs behind a walker and entered the waiting room of neurosurgeon Dr. William Smith.
“Don’t let anybody tell you different, back operations hurt,” Carrison said.
From him you can learn about Sjogren’s syndrome, the autoimmune disorder that caused tennis star Venus Williams to pull out of the recent U.S. Open. And from him you get a better sense of why Southern Nevada continues to have a shortage of doctors.
The turn of phrase that Carolyn Savage cherishes from her visits to Las Vegas goes like this: “Man proposes, but God disposes.” In other words, people can make plans, but God determines how things will turn out.
