  • Perceptions of the Nanny

    I heard the BBC news report how there is a risk of high numbers of alcohol-related deaths in the future. Incorporated into this story was the idea that government needed to do something to prevent this from happening. Currently this is being done through a ''sin'' tax and other regulatory steps. The NHS published this account of the information: ...

  • The Results of Getting Involved

    It's been several months since I was elected as a board member to the Southeast District (SED) of the TPTA. Another meeting is coming up this week. I have nothing to report. That isn't particularly surprising since I only have two responsibilities; the spring and fall student socials. Next month will be different. Meanwhile I've had time to ...

  • Career Advice Confusion

    After 7-and-a-half weeks of my 10-week final clinical rotation, I feel I've hit a healthy stride.

  • Self Evaluation

    As the last week of one of my last clinical affiliations comes to a close, I'm stunned at the amount of valuable information I've learned.

Like anything new, I ...

  • Take Five Minutes of Your Day

    I spent a portion of my day fighting to swallow the big emotional lump in my throat and choke back tears as I attended the last of a 2010 lecture series at Bryn Mawr Hospital in suburban Philadelphia. Surrounded by health care workers from every corner of the hospital, I squeezed into the last available seat in a row in front of my father, a ...
  • Indecision

    As I close in on the start of my second year in the PTA program, people have started to ask me what field of physical therapy I want to work in. And I always politely answer, ''I have no idea.'' I get the standard sympathetic head nod and I eagerly promise I'll let them know as soon as I make up my mind. Yet my indecision is most frustrating to ...

  • Do You Measure Up?

    A pitiful 3 percent of 153,000 respondents in a study by Michigan State University met the characteristics of a healthy lifestyle. According to the study, a healthy lifestyle is defined by four basic standards: Not smoking Holding weight down Eating right Exercising So 97 percent of the roughly 307 million people living in the United ...
  • Do You Promote Health Literacy?

    Do you suffer from medical mouth? It's a common condition that crops up in exam rooms and around clinician offices. Symptoms include chronic bouts of medical terminology and spontaneous reference to inaccessible research. Side effects include reduced verbal feedback and increased risk of patient disengagement. When speaking with patients, ...
