AUBURN UNIVERSITY – An estimated 70 percent of women in the United States develop fibroid tumors in the uterus by age 50, and while the noncancerous tumors cause no symptoms for the majority of those women, they make life miserable for tens of thousands of others.
Within his own family, Wallace Berry has seen the pain and distress that uterine fibroids can inflict, and in his newest research undertaking, the Auburn University poultry scientist aims to use his findings to help reduce the incidence and severity of fibroid tumors.

AUBURN UNIVERSITY – Just like clockwork, Hayley Eustice and her owners arrived Monday at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, ready to start another week of medical therapy.
While Hayley’s visit was routine, blood work and a check of her lymph nodes, for owners Elizabeth Eustice and Joan Taylor of Columbus, Ga., and the veterinarians and staff of the College of Veterinary Medicine, her arrival was significant – she was the first client in the door of the 208,000-square-foot Wilford and Kate Bailey Small Animal Teaching Hospital. Just like she’s done on every visit, the white poodle pranced around to greet everyone, happy to see familiar faces.
AUBURN UNIVERSITY – In Kenya, traditional cultures place a high value on honey and related products of the beehive – in the past it was part of the dowry or “bride price” for marriage, and a man needed to have at least 20 liters of choice honey to present to a prospective father-in-law when asking for his daughter’s hand.
More than just a tradition, this commodity could be the key to improving many aspects of Kenyan lives.
Auburn University’s Global Water Watch has joined with Kenya’s Green Belt Movement to find innovative ways of linking honey production with improved nutrition, higher incomes, community development and river protection.
