How to Save a Life

How to Save a Life

This is a slide taken from the lecture I may or may not be sitting in currently… Tremendous health benefits are seen with even low levels of exercise. Amount of exercise needed to benefit health is much lower than amount needed for fitness. Regular physical activity at the correct intensity: Reduces the risk of heart […]

2012 in Review

2012 in Review

And now begins the times of reflection that we all have, whether we intend to or not. For some reason, the beginning of a New Year makes us look at the past and the future–all at once. I can’t say I’m really big on “resolutions”. They usually fail by February. Instead, I like to look […]

My God Complex

My God Complex

Going on a medical mission really messes with one’s God complex. It’s wonderful when you are able to watch a kid chew a tablet that will immediately begin curing them of their parasite. You get the warm fuzzies and you feel that you are making a difference. But then there are cases that you see […]

God of Love

Ok. I promise that this blog is not only going to be about the CD. BUT, it’s wonderful, and I love bragging on my husband. Deal with it 🙂 Plus, for those of you that I only know in the blogging world, this is what’s going on! You would think that I would be sick […]

So, You Love a Student Doctor…

You are the few. The chosen. Perhaps the disillusioned.  But without you, we couldn’t make it. Medicine is a tough road to travel and not just for the student. Sometimes (ok, often times…) it’s the family and friends that get the brunt of it. At the beginning of the school year, I posted 10 Practical […]
