Firearm-Related Injury and Death — A U.S. Health Care Crisis in Need of Health Care Professionals
"Don’t be silent. We don’t need more moments of silence to honor the memory of those who have been killed. We need to honor their memory by preventing a need for such moments. As health care professionals, we don’t throw up our hands in defeat because a disease seems to be incurable. We work to incrementally and continuously reduce its burden. That’s our job."

The Fierce Triumph of Loneliness

Medical students need to be quizzed, but ‘pimping’ isn’t effective
"Continuing to include pimping as part of evaluating medical students does not reward them for learning. Instead, it punishes them for doing so by highlighting what they did not know, and uses that lapse to represent their clinical performance more broadly."
