The recent tragedy in our community has left all of us shaken, disturbed and confused. Everywhere you go, people are asking, "Why?" Carilion's Alice Ackerman, M.D., and Thomas Milam, M.D., talk to Karen McNew about grief and how to talk to your children about it. Watch now. http://ow.ly/Rtqhl
Our hearts are heavy today with the tragic loss of WDBJ7 reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward in a senseless shooting at Smith Mountain Lake. Our Carilion Clinic family had gotten to know Alison and Adam well in recent years, spending many early mornings with them during live TV reports from our facilities throughout the region. Alison and Adam were more than journalists to us -- they were good friends who will be missed. A third victim in this morning's shooting was Vicki Gardner, a close friend and member of the Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital Board of Directors. Vicki was transported to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital and underwent emergency surgery. She is currently recovering and is in stable condition. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Alison, Adam and Vicki, as well as our friends at WDBJ7, during this very difficult time.

To a child, the start of summer vacation usually means three months of uninterrupted fun and exploration. For many educators and health care providers, however, the summertime brings a new list of concerns. The end of a school year marks a three-month hiatus from educational programming and, for many children, proper nutrition. This interruption in a child’s development has been coined the “summer slide.”
For the seventh year in a row, Carilion Clinic has received Health Care’s Most Wired™ designation from the American Hospital Association’s Health Forum and the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives.
