Some selected highlights from a wonderful talk on diversity in medicine from the great @DrQuinnCapers4.

First: we have been calling for diversity in medicine for decades and havenโ€™t been able to move the needle.

There is a leaky pipeline. We lose URMs at a number of spots. The biggest determinant of premed students changing their major was chemistry.

As a former chemistry TA, we can do better than this.

There are real, unconscionable health consequences to lack of diversity.

-women less likely than men to receive AICD when indicated
-black and Hispanic patients less likely to get revascularization (more likely to get amputation) for lower extremity PVD

Ahead of the #WorldOceansDay, we want to share with you a wonderful story ๐Ÿ“˜โœจ we just received from Germany (thread ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ)

A dead sperm whale full of plastic.

A little boy, Lennard, so impressed that he asked how he could help marine animals...

Lennard (3) did not want to wait to go on a beach to pick plastic.

He decided to act now, with his friends from the kindergarten.
