Who What Why When How
Our websites PANDORA WORD BOX (PWB) and CLINICAL EYE OPENERS (CEO) are sponsored by OMNINET-MEDWORD LLC. The UKRAINIAN TERATOLOGY INFORMATION SYSTEM (UTIS) we co-sponsor with OMNI-Net Ukrainian Programs.
The above are companion websites. We also sponsor a related International Birth Defects Information System (IBIS) website. Together, these share the goal to promote the detection, recognition, diagnosis, care and prevention of human disabilities with an emphasis on congenital malformations, mainly mental "retardation" and other functional or structural "birth defects". PWB has an emphasis on English Medical Vocabulary presented in 4 channels: words (ideas and roots); fine art images, illustrated reviews and perspectives; and aphorisms.
PWB is a veritable pictorial gallery or works by outstanding artists who inherently excel in conveying their ability to see and their grasp of human nature - in fact, fine arts is a language that transcends time and linguistic barriers. PWB is not a repository of clinical images - CEO is.
New contents are added on an ongoing basis and occasionally in response to requests. When feasible, posted images on PWB are correlated with those posted on CEO.
To facilitate fuller grasp of meanings and memorization, contents emphasize notions linked to words irrespective of linguistic barriers (see Ideonomy). This approach (ideonomy) implies inclusion of notions arising from Mythology, legends, Ethics, Humanities and History.
The contents aim at a dialog with general audiences and in particular with medical and health sciences students, interns, residents, clinicians, nurses, preceptors and educators in general.
