Inspired by @PeterHotez #grandrounds, we started a pilot elective to teach #scicomm & debunking #misinformation to @uchipritzker medstudents

Each student selected a myth to debunk & created an infographic with science/#visualart guidance
#medtwitter #scienceupfirst 🧵
Inspired by @tropical_toxic cover art @TIME assignments, @sara_serritella and I are sharing their work here w/permission.
Students could choose any misinformation to debunk. While some chose COVID19, not all did! They also specified their audience.
For those skeptical of government creating vaccines by Zachary Newman MS1:

We have risen to the challenge before and accomplished amazing things through working together. The mRNA vaccines show us at our very best. #Getvaccinated #amazingthings #COVID19vaccine #thisisourshot 3/x

Critics Warn Democrats’ HR1 Is ‘Attack on American Liberties’…

.@PILFoundation's J. Christian Adams couldn’t believe what he was reading as he poured over the text of #HR1, the “For the People Act” -- the first piece of proposed legislation introduced by congressional Democrats in the 117th Congress.

“We have been collecting over the years non-citizen maintenance data [for state #VoterRegistration rolls], and here’s how it works.”

Over the next few days, I'll highlight my GFIL COL(R) Clark Martin. He was an avid photographer in much of his time at West Point, the Korean War, and career as a FA and ADA officer. I wanted to showcase his incredible photos. First 2 ch are @WestPoint_USMA from '46-'50.
Clark served for one year in the @USNavy before he realized the Navy life wasn't for him. He applied for and was accepted to @WestPoint_USMA through nomination from #Illinois Congressman Everette Dirksen (later a Senator and key writer on the Civil Rights Act)
Clark entered West Point in 1946. Superintendent at the time was MG Maxwell Taylor who was the Commanding General of the @101stAASLTDIV during WWII and would later become a 4-star and Chief of Staff of the Army and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

PSA: there’s always a bit of surplus in every medication vial. The amount of “extra” volume is roughly proportional to the number of doses in the vial, but it’s not consistent across vials.

IOW: this ain’t news, and it is *NOT* a practical solution.…
The @US_FDA should know better than to suggest that clinical staff go on a fishing expedition to squeeze out every last milliliter of drug in a vial…especially when the medication is temperature sensitive and requires exceptional care while handling. 🤦🏻‍♂️

I am going to rant about taxes for a bit because that 2018 FOX interview with Cori Bush has me pissed, at her for not doing her homework and at FOX, Mitt Romney, and all the other tax propagandists who focus solely on federal taxes. Remember Romney's 47% who pay no taxes? A lie.
But it's a lie that goes over well as it comforts and flatters the wealthy by portraying them as the people grossly bearing the burden of paying for everything while 47% are freeloaders. Well, first off, everybody pays into Social Security and Medicare, even the undocumented.
and they will never receive those benefits they pay for. There is a small exception for those who work but earn so little all their taxes are refunded as an Earned Income Tax Credit. They way Republicans scream about EITC you would never know it was originally a GOP plan (Nixon)
