The 2013 walk celebrates fourteen years of walking and fundraising to fight SIDS and SUID in Iowa. The purpose of the walk is to raise awareness about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and SUID while raising funds for the Iowa SIDS Foundation. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome is the sudden, unexpected and unexplained death of an otherwise healthy infant up to the age of one year. The annual walk is a family orientated event for SIDS and SUID families to celebrate and remember those babies that were only with us for a very short time, and for community members to show their support.

This year’s walk sponsors include: Modern Woodmen of America, NCMIC, Jeneary Dental, Iowa Speedway, Corporate Farmer, Horizon Home & Farm Improvement, American Family Insurance, LS2 Group, Stairway to the Stars, Mercy Cedar Rapids, Keokuk County Health Center, Grinnell Mutual, Obstetrics & Gynecology Specialists, P.C., Children’s Dental Center of Mason City, American Bank, Brooks Law Firm, P.C., Dr. Daniel Kaler, European Motorcars, Grinnell Regional Medical Center, Casey’s General Stores, Major Erickson Funeral Home, Medicap Pharmacy-Ankeny, Quality Construction Services, Inc., Skiff Medical Center, Theisen’s Home Farm Auto, and Zany Janie Entertainment.

Media Sponsors include the Quad-City Times, KISSFM, KG95, 93.9 KIA-FM and Super Hits 102.7.

SIDS and Reducing the Risk While great strides have been made in reducing SIDS deaths, SIDS remains the leading cause of death for infants from one month to one year of age. For more information about the Iowa SIDS Foundation, the annual walk, or the AAP’s safe sleep risk reduction recommendations, visit www.iowasids.org or call the ISF office at 866-480-4741.

“The Basis of Psychiatric Evaluation and Treatment”
July 11th. 2013   Independent Scholars’ Evenings. 7.00 p.m. at 1530 Fifth. Avenue. Moline. IL
By:
Brian Olshansky, MD, FACC, FAHA, FHRS, a board certified clinical cardiac electrophysiologist, is a tenured Professor Emeritus of Medicine at The University of Iowa.
The psychiatry profession has been given a free ride for years concocting mutilating surgeries, inhumane treatment of the “insane” and crippling drugs to control behavior.  To date, none of their techniques or medicines have been proven effective for any specific condition.
It is time to rethink the profession and develop sound ways to deal with “mental illness”. 
The profession is particularly adept at creating disturbances that appear on the surface to have validity but with a careful look are nothing more than methods to label and disable.  Further, they have worked hand in hand with pharmaceutical companies to create new ways to drug, intoxicate and control the public at high expense and at high risk to our society.
The unwitting public has taken the psychiatric profession at face value –Their therapies are potentially deadly and there is little if any real scientific evidence of benefit.
About the author:
Dr. Olshansky graduated from Carleton College, completed his MD at the University of Arizona, residency training in Internal Medicine at Bellevue/NYU Hospitals, Cardiology Fellowship training at The University of Iowa, and Electrophysiology Fellowship training at the University of Alabama-Birmingham. Following training, Dr. Olshansky has been a faculty member at the University of Alabama, Case Western Reserve University and Loyola University before returning to The University of Iowa. He has directed electrophysiology laboratories and training programs at Loyola University Medical Center and University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics using state-of-the-art techniques .
Dr. Olshansky is known for his diversity of interests ranging from  cardiac electrophysiology to holistic issues regarding medical care and the doctor-patient relationship.  
He has taught ethics to medical students and has been listed as one of the “Best Doctors in America” for many years.  
He has lectured internationally and has been a visiting professor at institutions throughout the world.  His goal is to help improve medical care to patients throughout the world.  
Dr. Olshansky’s research interests are extensive.  He has been involved in numerous clinical trials and has published over 200 peer-reviewed manuscripts (a total of over 400 manuscripts, including non-peer-reviewed manuscripts, reviews, e-publications, slide series and editorials), over 200 abstracts, 45 chapters and three books.

He recently appeared on NBC's "America's Got Talent,” making it to the Las Vegas finals.

The thrilling, yet comical, presentation involves audience participation. Attendees will have an opportunity to help hold these unique creatures in a safe environment. The free show is part of the library’s “Have Book, Will Travel” summer programming for children and families.

In other Rock Island Library events on July 11, the library’s teen department will present a free “library mini-golf” event for ages 12 to 18 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm in the Main Library.

Hello!
Fish The Mississippi Valley Blues Festival is under way! Keep in mind the festival is now on 2nd street from Ripley St. to Brady St. in Downtown Davenport. Additional stages and workshops will be housed in the River Music Experience and its courtyard outside. Show your love for blues at one of the finest fests in the country and catch Kenny Wayne Shepherd along with many more amazing bands!
Take some time to appreciate the art around Downtown Davenport this weekend. Head to the Figge for their new exhibition Studio1: Pop Art Soup to see iconic images by Andy Warhol. Or, familiarize yourself with another newer exhibit during the docent-guided tour of the No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service Exhibition. If you prefer to be the artist, be sure to try out the Acrylic Painting Class for beginners.
Looking for environmental, cultural, and physical activities for kids? How about an afternoon of obstacle courses, bounce houses, basket ball, kite making, and more? Celebrate at Davenport Parks and Recreation on Wednesday during Youthfest! Due to high water, the event has been relocated from Centennial Park to the Fejevary Children's Center.
The Adler Theater's Grace Potter & the Nocturnals show is right around the corner on July 13! Be sure to get your tickets before it's too late.   While you're at it, grab your tickets for the Headbanger's Burlesque Part Deux coming to the Adler on July 20th, too.
With summer flying by, take a moment to appreciate the beautiful weather while you can! Enjoy a delicious lunch outdoors on the patio of Sippi's or Barrel House 211. After lunch, walk on over to The Ruby Slipper or the SiS International Shop to peruse wide selections of gifts and trinkets! Of course, you can't beat the fine dining at Duck City Bistro if you're in the mood for something unique and delicious for dinner.
Last but not least, we'd like to thank everyone who came out for Red White & Boom!  The weather was beautiful and we were thrilled to give you a great fireworks show from the Centennial Bridge.  We'd also like to say thanks one more time  to Genesis Health System and Riverboat Development Authority for sponsoring the fireworks and making this great QC tradition possible.
See you downtown!
