    I find myself thinking quite a bit about how much healthcare has changed since I was young and trying to figure out how it is that we have come to find ourselves in our current situation. I just want to state, for the record, that I am not that old. I was a kid in the 60s and I had my children during the 70s and early 80s. I am not talking ...

  • The Power of Brows

    If our eyes are the windows to our soul, then our eyebrows are most certainly the curtains. And it has been studied to be true - eyes are the first thing another person notices about our appearance.  With all the care that goes into taking care of our eyes, I find that eyebrows are often overlooked. The shape of our brows is very ...

  • Lessons Learned in my Clinical Year

    Graduation day is just around the corner (but who is counting?), so I've decided to reflect back on the ''lessons learned'' during my clinical year of PA school.

  • Embracing Old Age

    The other day, I came across a poem that was written by an older man who was living in a nursing home.  It is a touching poem, so I've decided to share it with you.  Although the poem addresses nurses specifically, I believe that its message is to everyone, regardless of one's profession. It is a reminder that, despite our age or ...
