Letter from the Dean – Fall 2015

    Found a lump under my armpit. First it was small. The pain was not felt. Now rub and increasing. My friends such do not. The other day found out that it can be serious disease. But I think, obviously fatty lump. Found understandable information about this lump. Now I'm not afraid of bad diagnosis. Everything is clear and detail is written down to the smallest detail. Many have problems with the armpits. There are a lot of bacteria. Then formed balls. They can be painful, but not always. It is better to know in advance about this problem. Then there will be no fear of horror. Good, that now I understand this. http://armpit.info/

John Acosta, Pharm.D.
