Food Genius Publishes Mediterranean Menu Trends and Insights Data Report for Full of Foodservice Industry Analytics.


Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 14, 2015

Food Genius, the leading foodservice data provider specializing in gathering, preparing, and serving granular foodservice menu data and analytics, has published a new monthly industry analytics presentation focused on one of America’s most common cuisine types. Mediterranean cuisine has been growing in popularity over the last number of years in part thanks to the successful growth of new quick casual operators like Zoe’s kitchens and the massive rise of the Greek yogurt category. Food Genius decided to focus their regular monthly menu data analytics around this cuisine and has some interesting takeaways for those in the restaurant industry who are thinking about how to incorporate Mediterranean ingredients and flavors into their offerings.

Mediterranean Menu Trends and Insights, Food Genius’ data presentation details analytics on what ingredients, dishes, proteins, and dressings are most commonly utilized within Mediterranean cuisine in the US. With an emphasis on plant-based ingredients, health experts recently promoted Mediterranean cuisine as a healthy and well-balanced diet that could curb memory loss as the brain ages.

With consumers maintaining focus on healthy restaurant options, Food Genius believes there are opportunities for non-Mediterranean operators to think about how they too can incorporate Mediterranean-inspired flavors or ingredients that consumers will gravitate towards.

Key insights from Food Genius’ Report:


    Hummus is only featured on 14% of all menus nationwide, but 75% of Mediterranean menus
    Lamb appears to be more established as a distinctly Mediterranean ingredient in its application, than in most other cuisines.
    The average price of Mediterranean entrees across the US is $ 7.48

Dr. Rod J. Rohrich Publishes Retrospective Study on Facelift Surgery in MWL Patients


Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 29, 2015

Texas plastic surgeon, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, and colleagues, have published a retrospective study on special needs and outcomes of facelift surgery in the massive weight loss patient population. The study was published in the February issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Individuals considered to be massive weight loss (MWL) patients are often defined as those who have lost more than 50% of their excess body weight via either diet and exercise or by undergoing bariatric surgery. Facial aesthetics is often one of the greatest concerns for these patients, who often complain about sagging skin in the cheeks and neck.

The study, which carefully reviews Dr. Rohrich’s considerable history of facelift patient outcomes, offers guidance and feedback to plastic surgeons performing facelift surgery on patients who have lost a considerable amount of weight. In comparison to a typical facelift patient, for example, MWL facelift patients will often require a much larger volume of facial fat augmentation, increased tightening of the cheek and neck area to address excess skin, and more extensive elevation of the underlying muscle and facial tissue.

“Massive weight loss patients are a unique class of patients,” explains Dr. Rohrich, the study’s senior author. “As we study the outcomes of these patients, more and more we are finding that special considerations should be taken with these patients to maximize the outcomes of the surgery and reduce complications.”

Dr. Rohrich, a longstanding advocate of individual analysis in facelift surgery, views the study’s results as a good example of the importance of component facelifts which are tailored to each patient’s individual situation. The appropriate surgical plan for these patients, says Dr. Rohrich, will depend on a large number of factors such as the patient’s skin laxity, fat atrophy, and overall facial shape.

“Studies like this are invaluable tools to help us refine our surgical approach so that we can achieve the best, and safest possible outcomes for our patients,” says Dr. Rohrich, who is also editor in chief of the Journal. “Fundamentally, what patients desire is to look like themselves and have their sense of identity restored, something that may be taken away from them after massive weight loss.”

“It’s a prescription for exercise – in a book,” said James Beckerman, M.D., cardiologist with Providence Heart and Vascular Institute. “Heart to Start” has self-assessments to help readers measure their fitness levels and track their progress as they work their way through the detailed week-by-week schedule of simple aerobic and resistance workouts.

“Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women throughout the world, but it turns out, you control about 80 percent of your risk,” said Dr. Beckerman. Choices such as quitting smoking and eating a healthier diet help reduce a person’s risk of heart disease. But Dr. Beckerman believes that “exercise is the least prescribed and most effective heart treatment.”

After kicking off their journey, readers can share details or get advice from others through the Heart to Start community. By liking Heart to Start on Facebook, people can receive regular tips on living a healthier life.

NLN Research Journal Publishes Themed Edition Featuring Evaluating Innovations in Nursing Education


Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 26, 2014

Nursing Education Perspectives, the NLN’s respected bimonthly peer-reviewed research journal was invited to publish initial findings from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Evaluating Innovations in Nursing Education (EIN) Initiative. EIN, based at the Center for State Health Policy at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ, was launched in 2008 in response to the growing shortage of nurses and nurse educators. Currently in its third grant cycle, the initiative supports evaluations of interventions that expand teaching capacity or promote faculty recruitment and retention in schools of nursing. So far, 12 grants of up to $ 300,000 have been awarded.

An important corollary to the EIN mission is the dissemination of evidence-based success in strategic interventions that may be widely replicated. “As a respected forum for presentation of evidence-based best practices and issues that are key to excellence in nursing education, Nursing Education Perspectives is a natural fit for these latest EIN findings,” noted NEP editor Joyce Fitzpatrick, PhD, RN, FAAN. “We made certain to expedite our peer-review process to respond to the foundation’s and the NLN’s shared interest in the timely publication of this research.”

Added NLN CEO Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN: “The NLN was delighted to be asked by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to showcase the groundbreaking EIN scholarship. Understanding how best to increase recruitment and retention of nurse educators dovetails with the NLN mission to promote excellence in nursing education to build a strong and diverse nursing workforce to advance the health of our nation and the global community.”

The six manuscripts accepted for publication, following NEP’s peer-review, are:

— “Increasing Faculty Capacity: Findings from an Evaluation of Simulation Clinical Teaching,” Hila Richardson, Lloyd Goldsamt, Janie Simmons, and Mattia Gilmartin; New York University

— “Dedicated Education Unit: Student Perspectives,” Vicki Nishioka, Michael Coe, Makoto Hanita, and Susan Moscato; University of Portland, OR

— “Dedicated Education Unit: Nurse Perspectives on their Clinical Teaching Role,” Vicki Nishioka, Michael Coe, Makoto Hanita, and Susan Moscato; University of Portland, OR

— “Building the Evidence for Dedicated Education Unit Sustainability and Partnership Success,” Joann Mulready-Shick and Kathleen Flanagan; University of Massachusetts, Boston

— “An Evaluation of State-based Support for Service Programs Targeting Nurse Faculty,” Jennifer Craft-Morgan, Don Pathman, Marilyn Oermann, T. R. Konrad, and Brandy Farrar; Georgia State University and University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill

— “Evaluation of the First Two Years: A State-Wide Consortium’s Adoption of a Unified Nursing Curriculum,” Alice Tse, Victoria Niederhauser, John Steffen, Lois Magnussen, and Nova Morrisette; University of Hawaii at Manoa

In his guest editorial introducing the reported findings, “Effectiveness of Strategies Addressing the Nurse Faculty Shortage,” Michael Yedidia, PhD, national program director of EIN and professor at Rutgers University Center for State Health Policy, highlighted several trends in academic nursing that gave rise to the need to create and test specific interventions. Dr. Yedidia then issued a call to action to schools of nursing to join EIN in expanding the project’s scope.
