The Renown Health network that has become so popular and influential in the Reno area has announced that they will be opening a new location, this time in a mall.Healthcare in a mall? This is not conventional, by any means. But Renown Health is not afraid to do things a little bit differently, and change the way that people think about the care that they receive. The space will be designed by the interior designing company “MBA Architects + Interior Design”, and was spearheaded by designer and architect Eric Fong. The medical director of Renown, Dr. McCormack, said that the Renown clinic will be engineered to provide an “inviting and comfortable” feeling for the patients who come in for appointments and blood work.

Renown Health is locally owned by Reno community members. Instead of having a disconnect between the hospital advisers and the community, there is instead an integrated approach within the Renown Health business model. All money is allocated by the local owners, and since it is run on a not-for-profit model, all income is reinvested into community programs and initiatives, and back into the organization.The Renown Network owns and operates almost 1,000 patient beds, and has over 700 doctors that they are connected to and work with .

Renown has received over $10 million dollars from donors who appreciate the work that they are doing. As an organization, they are changing the health and well being of Reno as a city. They continually contribute to non-profits in the area, and support research and clinical trials that impact people’s lives. The Renown Health board members and advisers operate with the values of the community at heart, and all decisions are based on that core value. The healthcare that the hospitals and doctors in the network provide is tied together with the activities outside of the hospital or clinic walls. Read more.

The most prevalent type of sleep apnea is the obstructive sleep apnea. This disorder mainly involves repeated interference of breathing during sleep. It happens when throat muscles relax during sleep, and it usually results in snoring. It has many effects such as insomnia, headaches, and drowsiness. Lack of oxygen commonly results in daytime fatigue and poor sleep. Sleep apnea is mostly associated with the increased risk of diabetes, heart attack, obesity, stroke, and high blood pressure.

Sleep apnea is managed through the use of CPAP machine that includes a mask that fits on a person to provide a constant flow of air. This keeps the airway open, and the patient sleeps well throughout the night. The machine tracks the data that is used by doctors to adjust the air pressure. It is also used to add additional treatments or medications to its maximum effectiveness.

Most doctors use the custom-fit oral appliance, which resembles an athletic mouth guard. It works by supporting the patient’s jaws when sleeping hence keeping the upper airway open. Only sleep specialists are supposed to refer a patient to a dentist. Dentists are the ones who possess the necessary training to fit the appliance.

The Success of Sanjay Shah’s Autism Research Campaign

Autism is a fast growing disorder that affects one in 68 children each year. It has been proven in addition to this that boys are more likely to be diagnosed with this fast grow disorder than girls. This disorder, though a well known disability, now has a new campaign known as Autism Rocks that has the mission of furthering overall research and understanding of autism.

Autism Rocks is a campaign that was started by Sanjay Shah who is a hedge fund manager and CEO of Solo Capital. Though Mr. Shah wanted to further the research for this disability, he did not know how to do so until until he was influenced by Snoop Dogg to fund-raise by using celebrities to sing concerts all around London. Since then, Mr. Shah has been able to persuade superstars such as Prince, Michael Buble, Lenny Kravitz and many others to play at his concerts.

Mr. Shah’s success in the hedge fund industry has enabled him to create this foundation to further research in autism which indirectly benefits his 4-year old son who has been diagnosed with autism. Mr. Shah’s experience at Solo Capital has enabled him to expand his business to employ over 100 financial experts in both the London officers as well as the Dubai offices. Mr. Shah’s success has made him one of the top donators to the Dubai Autism Centre.

With Sanjay’s new fundraising events, all the funds go to the Autism Research Trust that will support the Autism Research Centre that is centered in Cambridge. Mr. Shah has the desire to understand both the cause as well as the effects of autism and how to understand the person who is diagnosed. Mr. Shah does not have the desire to cure autism. Instead, Mr. Shah has the desire to understand how to communicate with his son in a more effective manner that can also benefit millions of other parents or family members.

Autism is a disability that is costly and time consuming. On average, parents of family members with autistic children can spend up to $60,000 on average in medical treatment and doctors appointments. Now with Autism Rocks, there will be gigs around the world that exhibit superstars who all have the same mission of raising more money to benefit both children and adults.

Sanjay Shah has worked with over 39 companies while finally landing as the CEO of Solo Capital. His current success has made his philanthropic goal a more attainable goal with his wealth and his connections. Mr. Shah has pledged his intent of furthering the research on autism that will help continue the positive development of children with autism and their parents. Sanjay Shah has the intent of raising as much money as he can that will all go towards research.
