The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
Central Ohio Health Systems form Columbus Fetal Medicine Collaborative
Listen to the Story
All of the health care systems in Central Ohio have agreed to work together in what is called the Columbus Fetal Medicine Collaborative.
Director of the fetal treatment program at Ohio State University Medical Center, Dr. Richard O’Shaunghnessy says they’re working to bring out the best in each health care system.
“If a problem is identified, we don’t want to wait until the moment of birth to mobilize our resources but instead to develop the care plan from the time that we make the definition of a problem in a baby, an unborn baby.”
Dr. Oshaughnessy says health problems among pregnant women or unborn children discovered at any Columbus area hospital will be referred to the collaborative to develop a care plan.
