Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder may affect Blood Vessel Health in Veterans

March 24, 2016

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may decrease the ability of blood vessels to dilate, raising the risk of heart attack and stroke in veterans, according to new research in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

In the largest study to date on the impact of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on blood vessel health, researchers found that blood vessels of veterans with PTSD were unable to expand normally in response to stimulus – they were less reactive — compared to veterans without PTSD. Less reactive blood vessels are linked to heart disease and other serious conditions.

Tennessee Driver License reform Bill moves forward in committee

March 28, 2015

Written by Tennessee State Representative Curtis Johnson

Speaker Pro Tempore

Tennessee State Representative - District 68Nashville, TN – Legislation designed to save money and cut down on the time spent renewing driver licenses moved forward this week in the House of Representatives.

As many Tennesseans note, despite technologies that allow licenses to be renewed online or in mobile kiosks, driver license centers across the state are often overcrowded.

House Bill 198 seeks to help solve this problem by moving the driver license renewal period from five to eight years. As the law stands now, Tennessee has among the shortest periods of time that a license is valid when compared to other states. Most states already have either a seven or an eight year license.
