Low vaccination rates are a #publichealth crisis, leading to outbreaks of deadly diseases like #measles. My new research in Vaccine/@ElsevierNews provides insight into the characteristics of people who post #antivax content on #Facebook: dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.vacc…
First, I want to credit my fantastic co-authors: @MTH_Pitt @emfelter @DrToddWo @ChadTRM @PittPubHealth. This research stemmed from thousands of #antivax comments on a video on the @kidspluspgh Facebook page: facebook.com/watch/?v=10159…
We used social network, quantitative, and qualitative analyses to examine 25% of people who left these comments. Our goal was to answer questions about who these people are, the information they post, and how they are connected.

In Congress, we’ve had a good record of passing bipartisan budgets in recent years. @realdonaldtrump and his impulsive White House haven’t helped.
Now he’s thinking of making cuts to #healthcare, education, protection for our air and water, #renewableenergy programs, and critical infrastructure funding to rebuild our roads and bridges – all to fund his big, dumb wall.

Mr. President, how about you let our bipartisan, bicameral #budget process play out and just stay out of it. #TrumpBudget

Some features that differentiate Shallow Medicine, as currently practiced, and the potential of #DeepMedicine, powered by #AI
Scratches the surface of the book, some supportive data in this thread
There are at least 12 million diagnostic errors/ year and the leading cause is failure to consider the diagnosis (which relates to System 1 thinking)
Humans have 185 different types of biases which leads to misdiagnosis. Example: failing to diagnose heart attacks because doctors think they don't occur in people age < 40

#Healthcare is a fundamental human right. In 2018, our legislature helped to ensure that right by expanding Medicaid. As of today, nearly 250K Virginians have enrolled in the program and now have access to quality healthcare.
This is what happens when we elect Democrats who are tenacious and unwilling to accept the status quo. But we still have work to do. We still have an opioid epidemic that is devastating communities and major improvements that need to be made to our mental health care system.
Last week, I was happy to visit one of our local facilities and have a great discussion with physicians and staff about these issues; we even tackled the benefits of community health.

#economics thread

@aoc's expansionary, unconstrained domestic spending proposal #GND (Green New Deal) is based on #MMT (Modern Monetary Theory).

It argues only regulating inflation & unemployment matters, not
deficits.

Some of my problems with MMT...

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modern_Mo…
I'll let @paulkrugman handle MMT's explicit problems. Mine are with its implicit presumptions:
1—We know how to manage long term vs short term
2—Global interdependencies don't matter
3—permission for uncapped spending
4—ignoring effect of aging
5—We can control inflation post-MMT
1) LT vs ST
Even w/traditional keynesianism, we are terrible at ½ the theory. SAVE during booms, spend during downturns. We've got the 2nd half down. Not the first one. Is there anything in our history that might suggest we are capable or willing to make good LT rate decisions?

Something happened tonight that I want to talk about. I’ve kept it to myself but now I see I’m not the only one. (A thread.)
In September, my husband uttered the words, “I’m done.” and I suddenly found myself a single parent.

I quickly realized that I can’t raise my daughter alone and need to be near a community of friends and support.

I decided we’re moving to Boston in the spring.
Because of our #HealthCare nightmare, finances have always been tight. In order to have money to move, I had to find a way to work without childcare.

I started driving for Uber Eats 2 months ago.

On evenings I work, Charlie rides along as I hustle carry out orders to customers.

A reflection back on the #NHS review (topol.hee.nhs.uk) and some differences between #US and #UK #healthcare:
1. The #1 source of jobs in both countries is from healthcare, which continues to rise with a steep slope (mostly non-physicians)
The #US now spends more than $11,000 per person for healthcare, while the #UK ~$4,000. Yet life expectancy has declined in the #US for each of the past 3 years, while it continues to increase in the #UK (graph adopted from @OurWorldInData)
3. The @commonwealthfnd ranks the #UK first and the #US last of 11 countries overall, with differences in 5 sub-categories charted here

I put this thread up Friday. Few RTs because #disability ♿ and #poverty are boring to people who aren't living it.

That's a real problem in America.

Yet my mentions were full of people facing the same struggle --the fear, frustration and isolation.

♿↘️
The failure to prioritize sick & #disabled people in America is an actual catastrophe for millions. We already know nearly all of America's #homeless suffer from some #disability.

Also, 81M disabled & 131M chronically ill Americans struggle financially due to medical costs.
When the #GOPTaxScam eviscerated the #ACA mandate, it jacked up the premiums for every sick person in America. Mine went from $239 a month for my HMO to $1,978.10.

The CBO said it would happen and it did. Millions have dropped their health insurance because of these price hikes.

I would like one freaking day without having to fight not only to stay alive, but to access the medical services that should be available to me for the $1,978.10 MONTHLY premium I pay to Blue Cross for my HMO as a person with #cancer

But instead it is an exhausting daily battle.
Trying to sign up for #disability because I am destitute from the cost of #healthcare for sick people in America is the most daunting & frustrating process. I have been working since I was 14, including a 4yr stint helping this country in the domestic Peace Corps and I'm angry.
Congress has failed 131M chronically ill Americans by refusing to give us a system where we all have the same access to care. I am trapped in my house because I can't get a wheelchair lift for my porch and a motorized wheelchair.

So some shit went down for me personally at the end of 2018. First, let me just say I'm old. I'm not old-old - sorry to anyone in their 80s but that's my definition of old-old these days. I am 48, so I'm Perimenopause old
so the "shit that went down" as I turned the page on 2018 is what began my #AdventuresInPerimenopause, aka the worst medical experience of my life...and I had my ankle surgically reconstructed w/no pain meds when I was 4 months pregnant
a few months before "shit went down" I had finally began to lose some of the 50lbs of extra weight that's been, well a weight, on me for a year. I was on a program, thinking about exercise - that's step 1, right? - and had safely dropped 15 lbs in 2 weeks

76 yr old Mom needs help gofundme.com/76-yr-old-mom-…
In 2011 I was bitten by a tick. I have a brain tumor/IIH & such severe intestinal damage that I CANNOT digest food w/out enteral food RX. It's $198/wk, even w/pharma discount. My (now) 77-year-old Mom is my caregiver but she can't afford it. Don't have enough to eat/save 🏡. 😭
I contracted E
Chaffeensis, Rickettsia of unknown etiology, & #LymeDisease. I just had 8th spinal tap to relieve pressure on my brain.
I'd been on antibiotics for 19 yrs.
I caught Coxsackie B4 virus-a cousin of polio. Lost most use of (L) side.
I wasn't treated for 11 mos. #Lyme

Now, on to what he did say: If @realDonaldTrump thinks we’ll make investigations of his potential misdeeds & betrayals into a bargaining chip to trade for legislation, he’s sadly mistaken. We’ll walk and chew gun at the same time to protect our nation. #SOTU
About 40% of U.S. adults can’t cover a $400 unexpected expense with cash. 25% have no retirement savings; of those who do, less than 40% think they’re on track to have enough in their golden years. We need an economy that lifts them. #SOTU
I support bringing down prescription drug prices. I support going all-in to put an end to AIDS, cancer, and other diseases. We can work together on this. #SOTU

THREAD! Now that everyone is looking, wanna to learn some history about RVA's racism? @theValentineRVA has a series called #ControversyHistory that explores our difficult history. TOMORROW the topic will be #healthcare disparities. This include's medical college graverobbing.
In December, on our weekly show #MUNICIPALMANIA, we spoke with Dr. Shawn Utsey about his research documented in Until the Well Runs Dry regarding the history at the Medical College of VA of using black bodies in the name of medical advancement.

Part of Utsey's research was around a man named Chris Baker who was the medical college's anatomical man. There is a well documented history of Baker stealing bodies for the medical college. In 1882 Baker & med students were caught grave robbing together & Governor pardoned them.

#Canada is at point where we hear a constant barrage of hate and fear. @CPC_HQ is yelling about a constant Trumpian border crisis that doesn’t exist. We do not have a border crisis. Yes. People have crossed, but, they aren’t wandering around #Canada
#cdnpoli 1/
#Canadians need to realize these people turn themselves into the RCMP. Our border is manned. They know who is crossing. We are obligated to hear their request. Most will be deported/sent back to the United States. As per Safe Third Country Agreement. We have no crisis 2/ #cdnpoli
The @CPC_HQ are stoking fear. When they know the laws. If the #CPC were in power, they too would be dealing with it the same way.
The @CPC_HQ stoking fear is to divide #Canadians
They don’t care about the border they have an agenda. That agenda should scare you 3/ #cdnpoli
