Front Street Shelter's Pet Food Pantry Empty!

The Front Street Animal Shelter provides 3,000 - 5,000 pounds of pet food to pet owners in need every week. Since establishing the program three years ago this is the first time the pantry has been empty. The program is 100% donation based and provides pet food to thousands of Sacramento residents. The resources are available to all Sacramento residents with the goal of helping keeping animals in their original homes and out of the shelter.

Old City Cemetery Tour - Melody & Murder

Old City Cemetery Tour - Melody & Murder

The Old City Cemetery Committee presents a tour featuring tales of their musical "residents" on Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 10:00 am.

Long before iTunes, music was a large part of Sacramentan’s daily lives. Much-loved musicians and teachers, cacophonous conductors, perforated pianists, and ill-fated instrumentalists will all vie for your attention on this rhythmic tour.

The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. Free parking is available in the lot at 10th & Broadway, across the street from the 10th Street entrance. Tours are free; however, donations are appreciated and benefit cemetery preservation. For more information, call 916-448-0811 or 916-264-7839.

First in US to be Accredited in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery

First in US to be Accredited in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery

The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology conducted the first Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery certification examination in August 2013.  Urogynecologists Larry Bowen, M.D., and Wesley Hilger, M.D., are among the first in the nation to be board certified in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS).

The recognition of FPMRS as a subspecialty Board represents many years of collaborative efforts from the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the American Board of Urology.  Both urologists and gynecologists with training in this field can now become Board Certified in FPMRS. Board certified fellowships in FPMRS have been around for many years, but individuals were not granted the privilege of board certification until now.
