New Ohio State Career Eagles Program Offers Kids Insight into Aviation

Career Eagles, an Ohio State aviation outreach program, puts kids in front of flight simulators and in touch with aviation professionals. The goal is to introduce students at a young age to aviation as a potential career. With pilot retirements and fewer trainees, there has been a shortfall. The joint initiative of Ohio State's Center for Aviation Studies, the Knowlton Foundation and the Experimental Aircraft Association has been designed to help address the need for nearly 500,000 aviation professionals by 2020.

New Implant May Help Sufferers of Cluster Headaches

Doctors at Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center performed the nation's first surgery to insert a neurostimulator for relief from cluster headaches. "A cluster headache is one of the most severe and disabling chronic pain conditions known to humankind," says Dr. Ali Rezai, director of the Neuroscience program and one of the scientific developers of this technology. At the onset of a cluster headache, patients hold the rechargeable handheld remote control to their cheek to activate the stimulator that blocks pain signals.
