dents. Founded in 2001, FSU College of Med-
icine is a community-based medical school.
Along with Florida International University
in Miami and Florida Atlantic University in
Boca Raton, it is part of a movement that be-
gan in the 1970s.

Instead of being integrated with one main
teaching hospital, FSU uses community hos-
pitals surrounding its regional campuses in
Orlando, Pensacola, Tallahassee, Sarasota,
Daytona Beach and Fort Pierce. The inten-
tion is both to expose its students to diverse
populations and their health issues, and
to diversify where its physician graduates
choose to practice.

Florida is said to be facing a projected
shortage of 7,000 physicians by the year 2025,
with rural areas suffering the worst defi-
cits, particularly along the state’s southwest
coast. In 2013, policymakers in Tallahassee
undertook funding measures to increase
the number of residencies in the state in the
hopes that those doctors will set up practice
where they have trained.

In March, Cleveland Clinic Florida’s CEO
and president, Dr. Wael Barsoum, asked vis-
iting IRMC officials if there was sufficient
physician interest in a residency program.
Lomax-Homier would have answered with a
resounding “yes.”

“People absolutely want to donate their
time and talent,” said Lomax-Homier. “They
come in all the time and ask if they can give
a lecture. It’s a way to share your knowledge,
like a plastic surgeon who comes in and
shows people who have never seen how to
repair a burn on the skin, or how to repair
someone’s face after a car accident. We even
have a dentist from Indian River State Col-
lege who does a dean’s round for us on medi-
cal manifestation of disease in the oral cavity.
It’s great.”

Lomax-Homier has been head of the
FSU’s Fort Pierce program for three years.
She was recruited for the board of Indian
River Medical Center by CEO Jeff Susi, who
dreamed of having graduate medical educa-
tion at the hospital. Susi, like the CEOs of all
the hospitals in this area, was on the com-
munity board of the FSU Fort Pierce campus.
“He understood the need of FSU medical
students to go on to residencies,” she said.

A definitive agreement with Cleveland
Clinic is expected in July. If approved by the
boards of Indian River Medical Center and
the Hospital District, regulatory review and
approval will follow. 

Study raises alarm over antibiotic use by older women

By Maria Canfield | Correspondent Cassie Jones, DO.
[email protected]
PHOTO: DENISE RITCHIE
A study out of Tulane University in
New Orleans concludes that women 60
and older who take antibiotics – even for
a short time – may be at a higher risk of
death.

In recent years, it’s become common
knowledge the widespread use of antibi-
otics has allowed infectious organisms
to adapt and become resistant to the
drugs’ intended effects – which is to cure
infections by killing or injuring bacteria.

Another unintended consequence
of antibiotic use is how even a single
course of the drug can disrupt the gut
microbiome – the complex community
of beneficial microorganisms that reside
in our digestive tract. This can lead to a
decline in “good” bacteria – including
the species that produce “butyrate,” a
substance that inhibits inflammation
and cancer formation in the gut.

Cassi Jones, DO, an internal medi-
cine physician associated with the Se-
bastian River Medical Center, says that
there is much ongoing research about
the importance of the gut microbiome
(sometimes more picturesquely called
gut flora) in our overall health. She cites

The findings of Professor Qi and his
team were presented in a scientific ses-
sion at a meeting of the American Heart
Association, held in New Orleans in
March of this year.

To be fair to antibiotics, they are an
essential part of modern medicine, and
are the only cure for a large number of
infectious diseases. When first used as
a medicine in 1942, penicillin became
the most effective life-saving drug in the
world, conquering such diseases as tu-
berculosis, gangrene, pneumonia, diph-
theria and scarlet fever. Since the early
1940s, scientists have developed more
than 150 different antibiotics to help
stop the spread of infections, and antibi-
otics are estimated to have saved at least
200 million lives worldwide.

However, at the same time, there is
little doubt that antibiotics are overpre-
scribed. In spite of the nearly universal
belief in the medical community that
colds are caused by viruses and are not
helped by antibiotics, the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
reports that each year in the United
States 18 million courses of antibiotics
are prescribed by doctors for the com-
mon cold.

“The palette knife kind of stuck with me,”
says Hayes.

He now uses brushes in addition to dif-
ferent varieties of paint-applying knives and
tools. Working on stretched and primed can-
vas, he used to begin his compositions with
an acrylic underpainting before completing
them in oil. Now Hayes works in acrylic paint
from start to finish, only occasionally reach-
ing for his tubes of oil.

“Fast forward about a year,” he says with a
chuckle. “In January I was a featured up-and-
coming artist at Sebastian Riverfront Fine Art
and Music Festival.”

An art fair newbie, he hoped one (just
one!) of his paintings would sell. Instead, he
sold eight.

Not long afterward, he stopped by the Se-
bastian Art Club.

“I walked in and everybody stands up and
applauds. It was embarrassing,” he says, mod-
estly shielding his eyes and grimacing – but his
rictus has more pleasure in it than pain.

A native Floridian, Hayes has been a lo-
cal resident for all of his 43 years. His high
school sweetheart, Simmone (née Worrell),
was a candy striper at Indian River Memo-
rial Hospital back then; today she is a nurse
at Lawnwood Regional. The couple married
in 1995 and produced four children, two of
whom are still in high school.
