Dr. Tom Rogers wants you to picture yourself 25 years from now. What will you look like, and how will you feel? Will you be energized and confident? As a man approaching 60 years of age, Dr. Rogers has asked himself these questions as well. He understands that people want to live active, healthy lifestyles for as long as possible. And, as a family physician who is board certified in both sports medicine and anti-aging medicine, he specializes in treatments that help people do just that.
He founded Performance Medicine to maintain and recapture patients' youthful vigor, encouraging his clients to follow weight-management programs and nutrition and fitness guidelines. For hormone-replacement therapy, Dr. Rogers and his medical staff use tiny, slow-release pellets as their preferred delivery method. Unlike creams and patches, the tiny pellets provide clients with consistent, energy-boosting hormone levels.
At the company's three locations, nurses, aestheticians, and certified laser technicians also upgrade exteriors with medical-grade skincare services. Their spider-vein-banishing sclerotherapy procedure was featured in a Daytime Tri-Cities segment.
In an interview with NPR Sergeant Derek Pacifico didn’t have any trouble listing common inaccuracies on TV cop shows. He pointed out that the officers never touch the crime scene, nor do the suspects often invoke the right to remain silent. The sergeant should know—as a 22-year vet of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, he’s worked on nearly 200 homicide investigations.
To help writers get their facts straight, Derek created Crime Writers Consultations. At his two-day Writers' Homicide School, adapted from curricula for actual homicide detectives, Derek covers everything from accurate interrogation techniques to authentic police dialogue. Derek also provides more individual assistance, consulting novelists and screenwriters over the phone to help them develop their fictions realistically. He even stops by TV and film sets to assist with particular scenes and to make sure the TV sheriffs' badge props are shiny enough.
The energetic pastors and staff at Friendship Church seek to help others discover their spiritual faith in an atmosphere reminiscent of a nondenominational church. They reach out to community members of all ages through youth and adult ministries and small discussion groups, constantly working to place theological debates within a modern context. For nearly a decade, they've augmented their main mission with a range of summer camps for children of all ages. Staffers of the church’s tech camps, which build appreciation for the outdoors and technology more effectively than challenging a bear to a game of Super Mario Bros., educate children through the use of robotics, video production, and video games and immerse them in outdoor games and activities such as waterslides and trampolines. They also hold competitive gaming weekends for all experience levels.
