article-F2611072-1D48FC5400000578-991_634x513Talk about turning your life around. A 24-year-old man in England, who was bullied as a child for being overweight, has now been offered a superstar gig. Nathan Hewitt, who at 15 weighed over 300 pounds, has not only lost the weight, but has become quite the looker.

After years of bullying, culminating in being ridiculed on a roller coaster ride, Nathan decided it was about time to take off the weight and lost 168 pounds. And the much slimmer Nathan wound up looking awfully like soccer star David Beckham, and he was recently offered a chance to become a Becks impersonator.

But believe it or not, Nathan turned down the gig, mostly because “he knows nothing about football.” Said Nathan, “It is one thing to look like him but I would feel a bit daft trying to pass myself off as one of the most famous footballers in the world.” And besides, Nathan would rather help other kids struggling like he did. He’s become a trainer and even received government funding to help battle Britain’s childhood obesity crisis. “I’ve been there, I know how it feels to be massive – you only have to look at my old photographs to see I was huge,” he said. “But I can use my experience to encourage other overweight children to slim down and change to healthy lifestyles. It’s hard but it is do-able and I’m the example of that.” He doesn’t need to pretend to be a superstar…because he already is one.

In an impressive showing of strength and teamwork, Connecticut firefighters banded together to lift a truck off of a trapped man.
A Fairfield resident had become pinned in the doorframe of a pickup truck in his garage late Sunday afternoon. After neighbors heard the elderly man’s cries for help and called 911, police and firefighters arrived on the scene to free him.

The man — who police later identified as 86-year-old Franc Us — had somehow become trapped between the door of the pickup truck and the vehicle’s chassis. To further complicate the situation, the truck was also wedged up against the garage’s doorjamb.

Firefighters from multiple units decided to use brute strength to rescue the man based on the tight squeeze and complexity of the situation. In a video from the scene, a team of first responders and firefighters lift the pickup truck from the back with their bare hands to free him.

Us was transported to a local hospital and treated for several injuries to his torso. As of Monday, he was reportedly listed in critical condition.

UnknownnnnTexas boy who had been saving his money to buy a PlayStation 4 decided instead to save some lives. After hearing about a fatal fire in his neighborhood, nine-year-old Hector Montoya decided to skip buying the video game and used the $300 he had been saving to buy smoke detectors.

“Saving a life is more important,” explained the wise-beyond-his-years child. And now thanks to Hector, and the help of the Grand Prairie Fire Department, 100 new smoke detectors have been installed in local homes. And Hector’s good deed did not go unnoticed. After word of his selfless act hit the news, an Allen, Texas teenager and his sister decided to buy Hector the PS4 he was saving for.

“To see a 9-year-old worrying about so many others, you can’t help but want to give him what he wants,” 19-year-old Ashton Harder told NBC. “We thought that he deserved something special.” Sounds like they all do.

Noyes Health is proud to recognize the many dedicated professionals who work in our laboratories services throughout the organization. Noyes laboratory professionals work hard to ensure that critical information about our patients’ health is delivered accurately with minimal turnaround time. Medical Laboratory Professionals Week allows us to spotlight the important role that laboratory professionals play as a vital part of the patient care team at Noyes Health.

Lab Week offers us a chance to show our gratitude to all of our dedicated workers on the Noyes Laboratory team—pathologists, medical laboratory professionals, phlebotomists and the administrative support personnel who keep things moving along on a day to day basis. And for those of you who ever wondered what all those folks in Noyes’ Laboratory Department do every day, 24/7, 365 days per year, here’s a brief overview.

Phlebotomist -Phlebotomists are trained to draw blood to be submitted for various tests. Phlebotomists need to know which vials to use for which tests as different vials are prepared and color-coded differently. Many of the phlebotomists that work at Noyes Health completed all or part of their six-week training program right here at Noyes Memorial Hospital.

Histotechnician – A Histotechnician is an expert in preparing and staining microscope slides that are used in diagnosing disease. Normally the Histotechnician prepares these slides but does not do the actual microscopic examination and diagnosis; this part of the process is reserved for a pathologist. Also known as histologic technologists, people working in these science jobs have an important role in diagnostic processes, as they must have knowledge of many different methods of specimen preparation, and be able to quickly decide on the best way to preserve tissues.

Medical Technologist- Medical technologists analyze specimens of human blood and tissue under a microscope to look for bacteria, parasites, cancerous cells, or other microorganisms. They match blood for transfusions, check blood levels for chemicals, drugs, or other factors. Additionally, medical technologists evaluate test results, develop and modify procedures, and establish and monitor programs, to ensure the accuracy of tests.

Pathologist – Pathologists are medical doctors who have completed residencies in Pathology, and are typically trained in both areas of Pathology-Anatomic and Clinical. Pathologists study bodily fluid, blood, and tissue samples, in order to diagnose illness or search for other medical conditions. A Pathologist may have a subspecialty such as clinical pathology, anatomical pathology, molecular pathology, surgical pathology, cytopathology, or forensic pathology. Some pathologists work only on samples from living people, in order to diagnose or treat diseases or conditions, while other pathologists deal with autopsies and sometimes criminal murder investigations.
Noyes is proud of all of the team members in our Laboratory Department that serve a critical role with professionalism and courtesy at all times, in all areas of our organization. We thank you for your hard work and dedication!
