Researchers banned

Posted By on Thu, Aug 7, 2008 at 4:14 PM

Three doctors were barred from research at the Little Rock veterans hospital as a result of testing deficiences reported this week in procedures for conducting human research.

One was former associate chief of research for the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System, Philip Kern. Kern is widely known for his work in obesity. He directs the weight control program at UAMS. Then-Gov. Mike Huckabee allocated general funds in 2007 to endow a chair in Kern's honor. Huckabee attributed his weight loss to participation in the UAMS program.

UAMS this week has defended its staff and said shortcomings found in the VA study were generally small matters with no impact on patients.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
