Health Policy Happenings, 3.20.19

I loved sending a weekly roundup of health policy and public health news to one of my student interest groups in graduate school, so I thought it would be a great way to share the interesting articles, research papers, podcasts, and more that I come across each week with all of you! I hope you find something interesting and engaging!

Death By 1,000 Clicks: Where Electronic Health Records Went Wrong

“The U.S. government claimed that turning American medical charts into electronic records would make health care better, safer, and cheaper. Ten years and $36 billion later, the system is an unholy mess. Inside a digital revolution that took a bad turn.”

Health Policy Happenings, 2.23.19

I used to send a weekly roundup of health policy and public health news to one of our student interest groups in graduate school, so I thought it would be a great way to share the interesting articles, research papers, podcasts, and more that I come across each week with all of you! I wanted to pop in yesterday to share but studying had to take priority.

I spent yesterday at my desk, aside from attending our exam review, and did some meal prep to get me though some of the weekend with healthier food. I planned to make pasta with lots of veggies and chicken sausage but ended up having at last three times as many veggies than pasta, so it’s more of a veggie sauté with pasta. Oh well, it tasted great and more veggies is always a good thing! But this exam must be getting to me because I definitely forgot to strain all of the water out of the pasta and put my new dry erase markers away in the silverware drawer…?

How I Keep Up With Health Policy Happenings

How I Keep Up With Health Policy Happenings

I may have hit snooze a few times this morning, but eventually I rolled out of bed, made some coffee, and started my morning routine of skimming the news and some journals for about 30 minutes before diving into my study tasks for the day.

I planned to post a short recap of this mornings offerings on Instagram, but there were just too many great reads that I wanted to share. Here is a brief glimpse at what I’m reading this morning [if I told you what was on every open tab, we’d be here until tomorrow morning]:

Health Policy Happenings, 11.16.18

Four days and one exam separate me from Thanksgiving break. It simultaneously feels like such a long time since I’ve had a break but also it’s only been three and a half months since school started.

It’s been a very busy month but not to worry–I’ve still had time to find some awesome things for you! I even found a moment to grab an amazing cherry key lime milkshake at Robert is Here! Pretty sweet post-health fair volunteering perks in med school 🙂

Health Policy Happenings, 10.12.18

My biochem notes and I are getting ready to jet off to the Windy City for a wedding and I’m looking forward to some fall weather (for context, it’s 8:00am in Miami and already 80 degrees). But before we take to the sky, its time for Health Policy Happenings.

What I’m Doing: Anatomy, that medical student rite of passage, has now come and gone. But even while I was in the midst of hours in the lab and memorization by nutty mnemonics, I still tried to keep up with my healthy habits. This included some at-home yoga thanks to Yoga With Adriene. I’m hoping that consistent attention to healthy eating, sleeping, movement and outside passions will help stave off burnout for a long time–but if that does not work, I’ll turn to The Female Doc and her incredible work on physician burnout.

Anatomy has kicked my butt this month, so I haven’t done as much fun medicine and health policy internet exploration as prior months. But, I still have some awesome suggestions to jump start your Wednesday!

Female physicians work exceptionally hard, often managing families and their own interests on top of their professional duties. Yet, in most cases, they do not have pay equity with male colleagues. Some incredible doctors have used their social media platforms to address this issue. Check out @nataliecrawfordmd, @drrupawong, and @teawithmd for some serious inspiration!
