A Social Media Experiment in Childrens’ Urinary Tract Infections


It has been reported that the incidence of urinary tract infections (UTI) in children younger than 6 years is 3-7% for girls and 1- 2% for boys.

Studies on UTIs are important because the disease not only causes acute illness, but can also result in long-term complications such as hypertension and reduced renal function. One of the many challenges in the treatment and prevention of UTIs is the rising rate of antibiotic-resistant bacteria due to the widespread use of antibiotics.

Dr. Ming-Hsien Wang
Dr. Ming-Hsien Wang is an Assistant Professor of Pediatric Urology at Johns Hopkins, whose research focus is on children with urinary tract infections, a common infection in infants and young children.  Dr. Wang is collaborating with other Johns Hopkins faculty to study how infections develop in the urinary tract and establish safer protocols for the evaluation of children with UTIs. Read more about Dr. Wang's research and previous studies by reading the blog, "Is a DMSA Scan Necessary for UTI in Children?" 

With the reduction in national funding for medical research, especially in pediatric medical research, Dr. Wang is working through gofundme.com – a "crowdfunding" resource, to further her work on pediatric UTI. Crowdfunding was made most popular by websites like kickstarter.com. However, kickstarter.com is designed for entry-level venture capitalism and for-profit companies. Sites like gofundme.com are designed strictly for non-profit organizations like Johns Hopkins and researchers like Dr. Wang. 

To complete this important work, Dr. Wang is relying on the support of men and women who deeply care about the health and well-being of all children. If you have interest in funding Dr. Wang's research, please click here: http://www.gofundme.com/h45avw.

  5. "Dear dr williams, your herb has saved my life and my sanity. I was scared, and had been seeing numerous specialists and almost all of the straight away told me I had to remove my uterus because of my large fibroid. Can you believe this? To top it all up, none of those doctors had answered my simple questions on the subject. I was so scared that I would not be able to have a baby as surgery seemed like the only choice then. Your product had dramatically allayed my fears. I have read many other guides on the subject of fibroids and i think dr williams herb is yours offers and the only true and lasting solution to fibroid. I am a walking living proof of that claim. It has been 3 months since I implemented dr williams herbal portion, and I am now completely clear of fibroids and I am sure I am on my way to become a mother. I also feel very healthy and vibrant. Thank god for your work and support dr williams, for more information about his herb you can also contact his email address drwilliams098675@gmail.com
