Smile big!! Spaulding got his #teeth cleaned this week! Ever wonder what happens when your pet gets their smile polished up? Then do I have the saga for you... 🧵

#vettwitter #medtwitter #SoMeDocs #teeth #dogsoftwitter #pets #cats #sundayvibes
[content note: this thread has pictures of Spaulding under anesthesia. It can be jarring to see what pets look like when they're under. Please know that Spauls was 100% safe and cared for, his dental was routine, and his anesthesia was unremarkable/boring {we like boring}] 👩‍⚕️🐶
After checking in and getting his weight (93 lbs!!), we set up Spaulding in a kennel- er, exam room- with some blankets and a bed. He was very curious as to where his mama was.

Socialization while #socialdistancing. A thread. I know this is hard. I’m going to share here how we celebrated my daughters 6th birthday to give some examples on how you can still celebrate the important moments that continue to happen as life goes on during this #pandemic.
First we asked my daughter to pick a few friends and we asked each to sign up for a 20 min slot. We asked that anyone who came wear a mask, and asked if anyone was having symptoms to pls decline the invite. We decorated our garage and put tape on the ground #6FtApartAndMasked
When ppl arrived they would first hand sanitize then write in a birthday book (we had mult pens). We had a backdrop for ppl to take pictures. Next stop the piñata where prior to touching the stick u would hand sanitize, then take 3 whacks. Next was socially distanced #hopscotch.

(1/ ) I lived in a city now, but I grew up in small towns, and want to talk for a minute about how declarations that #COVID19 won't affect areas with less population density really doesn't make sense if you understand the dynamics of small-town life. A 🧵 #medtwitter #SoMeDocs
(2/ ) The rural US may have less public transportation and more private residences. But their economies are more dependent on industries like manufacturing and mining, where people work in close quarters and can't work remotely, than metropolitan areas.…
(3/ ) We've already seen patterns of #COVID19 outbreaks in meatpacking and food processing plants in the rural US. Those are essential industries that have remained open in every state through shelter in place.…

(1/ ) What Dr Bright's whistleblower tells us about the problems that plagued early US efforts to conduct #COVID19 testing: a thread. #MedTwitter #Pandemic #SoMeDocs #publichealth #TestingTestingTesting #TestTraceIsolate…
(2/ ) A couple notes.
These events were concurrent w those in N95 thread. I thought stories separated by topic would be easier to follow.
Test development was a CDC project, but the complaint is illuminating re: approach to pandemic & supply chain issues
(3/ ) Jan 10: BARDA director Dr. Bright began pushing HHS leaders to acquire SARS-CoV-2 viral samples from China to jump-start diagnostic test development & antiviral drug and vaccine research, but "encountered indifference which then developed into hostility." (pp. 15-16)

(1/ ) What the whistleblower complaint by Dr. Bright tells us about the N95 mask shortage: a thread. #medtwitter #GetMePPE #GetUsPPE #SoMeDocs
Link to full complaint here.…
(2/ ) First, some hx about the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS). SNS used to be controlled by CDC. On 1/26/09, 11d after 1st US H1N1 infection, CDC authorized release of 39M masks, gloves, gowns, and face shields. That's how it's supposed to work.…
(3/ ) In 2018, control of the SNS was transferred away from the CDC to HHS, and placed under the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR)…

Posting them here to use the #SoMe as a positive motivation.
Inspired from @naval

Book #1
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

The most important take away for me was the "Win-Win" principle. How to work effectively with others to achieve optimal results!

BEFORE READING THIS THREAD, do you think this statement is TRUE or FALSE?

Despite being a documented #epidemic for decades, @HHSGov's #CenterForDiseaseControl(@CDCgov) intentionally obstructs its collecting #statistics on what causes at least 10% of deaths NEEDLESSLY every year.

HINT: You already know of these systemic #DataScams due to #PublicCorruption & #RegulatoryCapture:

🤥#UScensus is maliciously biased

Thread coming soon about #CauseOfDeath #DataFraud

#AmericanSwamp #MedicalControlFraud

ANOTHER HINT: My inability to escape intrahospital, interhospital & health/disability insurers’ #ConspiracyAgainstRights using #MedicalControlFrauds exposes motive of the right answer.

Watch this video later to understand #PublicCorruption by example📽️

#MedTwitter has been discussing “Take Two Aspirin + Call Me By My Pronouns,” an op-ed claiming social justice is taking time from sci ed + decreasing the quality of #MedEd.

So here’s my take:
“Take Two Aspirin + Read a Curriculum”

#MedTwitter #SoMeDocs #DoubleDocs
As always, I start threads with my POV: #LatinasInMedicine #DoubleDocs student in year 2 of #medschool. I have interests in both #MedEd + #HealthJustice. I am about to finish my term as diversity rep on our med student govt. I care a lot about advocacy.
Let’s take a moment to learn about the author: Stanley Goldfarb is a nephrologist, *former* assoc dean of curriculum at UPenn Med. He graduated from med school in 1969. Ffolks who studied at UPenn have brought up negative experiences with Dr. Goldfarb.

Alright, I have some thoughts on this op-ed, esp how tradition + legacy are often used as a distraction tactic from diversity/inclusion.

Buckle up for A THREAD.

#MedTwitter #SoMeDocs #DoubleDocs #DiverseDoubleDocs #MedStudentTwitter #WomenInMedicine #DiversityInMedicine
As always I start my thread by recognizing my own position in this conversation: I am a (proud) Latina woman training to be a physician-scientist. I hold a lot of privilege having attended an Ivy League institution for undergrad and currently training as a #DoubleDocs at another.
My own alma mater #PrincetonU has been recently grappling with its own (problematic) history by taking active steps to diversify iconography + naming around campus. I am proud to say that this is in part due to a meeting I co-hosted as co-president of PLA in combo with other orgs

On a serious note:
Tuesday is my father's 2nd yahrzeit
Sunday 4/21 was the 2y anniversary of his death.

In reflecting back, I have some thoughts for #medtwitter, #Jews and the general public...

#death #dying #grief #PalliativeCare #medicine
1. Condolence notes just need to say, "I am thinking of you" or "I was sorry to hear your news" or "I am sorry for your loss."

Don't overthink it, and don't offer false platitudes. Send your note or make your call, and the person who is #mourning knows you care.
2. Show up.
For #shiva, for #kaddish. The first week, there's a lot of people around in a #Jewish house of mourning. Then everyone goes home, and we are left alone.
Offer to go to lunch. Bring dinner. Take a walk.
Join us in shul. Kaddish that first time in services was hard.
