Doctor Wins Donnall Prize

For Linking Fainting, Clots

Dr. Umair Iqbal explains his research poster to research Jennifer Amsden during E. Donnall Thomas Day at Bassett Hospital.

COOPERSTOWN – Dr. Umair Iqbal, in his second year of training at Bassett Hospital, has won the 2017 E. Donnall Thomas Award for research linking fainting spells to blood clots in the lungs.

“More than 40 percent of patients who are evaluated in the emergency room with fainting are discharged with an unknown cause,” said Iqbal, whose research project competed with nine others for the award. “Syncope (passing out) is sometimes the first symptom of acute pulmonary embolism, and this diagnosis should be immediately considered in all of these patients.”

Bell Plucked From Milford Church Tower

Onlookers held their breaths as Eastman Associates’ Mike French uses his excavator to delicately lift the bell from the wobbling remains of the Milford United Methodist Church’s bell tower during today’s demolition. French removed two walls of the tower to expose the bell well enough to grab it. As it was lifted out over the rubble, it rang three times,  the chimes echoing across the valley. Those in attendance cheered and applauded as the bell was placed safely on the ground. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
