He kindly obliged with Just Say No, an informative and thoughtful article that we are happy to share with you.

Dr. Vishtasp Broumand Living by his Hippocratic Oath in Haiti

By Negin Mirmirani, PAAIA Editor

The group arrived in Port Au Prince, Haiti, as it was getting dark, the smell of decomposed and burning bodies filling the hot, humid air. Dr. Vishtasb "Vishy" Broumand's body ached as he led his medical team through the chaotic streets jammed with injured victims looking for loved ones.

Women's Soccer: New Head Coach Omid Namazi Leads Chicago Red Stars to 2-2 Draw VS Washington Freedom

When named Head Coach earlier this month, Namazi said of the Chicago Red Stars, "This is a talented group, but talent alone is not always going to be enough. There need to be other elements to the team -- good leadership, commitment to winning and commitment to doing everything in order to get the W's. And I think that's an area where I can bring some leadership to the team." With two goals by Red Stars' Brazilian forward Cristiane bringing their Jun 12 match with Freedom to a draw, Namazi said, "I feel that we're progressing in the right direction, but the important thing is to keep improving. We're going to keep working hard."
