Healthcare services are essential to every segment of the population. But some of our more fragile populations face transportation challenges to get to their essential medical appointments. Some must rely on family and friends or local community organizations to transport them. If these options become limited, Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) can fill in the gap.
It's not only the vulnerable portion of our populations that can be affected. We could also be talking about someone who’s normally healthy enough to get around but may be temporarily waylaid by an acute injury or surgery. Post-surgical patients aren't allowed to drive until cleared by their healthcare provider, even if the surgery didn't involve limbs or hands. Since surgery weakens muscles needed for driving a vehicle, and post-procedure pain medication may make driving illegal and unsafe, alternative arrangements need to be made. After all, getting to follow-up appointments is often crucial to recovery. If you can imagine trying to board a public bus with a cast on your leg and arm, you probably see the types of challenges some riders might face. For many, driving their own car is out of the question. For these and many other challenges, NEMT is the answer.

“Almost no one needs to die of cervical cancer.” That’s what Dr. Kirsten Austad, Maya Health’s director of women’s health, told the New York Times when Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Nicholas Kristof and student journalist Mia Armstrong spent some time with us last summer.
Bringing life-saving vaccines and screening to the women in rural Guatemala not only involves making these measures available and affordable in remote regions. It also requires building trust and understanding, all in the context of ongoing care. That’s where Maya Health comes in. Maya nurses deliver almost all of our women’s health care, building relationships with their patients and enabling them to discuss sensitive issues in their first languages.

Toxic Tuesday! Beware the risks of titanium implants! "Today we share the story of failed titanium dental implants. It is a common misconception that once dental implants are placed and integrated into the bone that they will function forever just like teeth. Unfortunately, this is not true. Despite excellent initial healing, in some situations, the implants can still fail. There are many things that can cause bone loss around implants (known as "peri-implantitis). This case shows what happens when an appropriate cleansing ability is not considered in the design of the restorations. These two crowns were splinted together and cemented on top of the supporting "abutments" (the parts that are screwed on to the implants). The problem with this is that it is impossible to clean! Notice the amount of tartar which accumulated on the implants just like barnacles on a boat! So toxic!! The implants and associated infected soft tissue around the implants were sent to DNA Connexions lab for analysis. Notice the image showing the incredibly high levels of toxic bacteria that had been chronically infecting this poor man's body. We used pulsed Erbium laser technology and ozone water to decontaminate the surgical site and grafted the hole in his jawbone with "L-PRF" (Leukocyte and Platelet-Rich Fibrin) which is a concentration of his own immune cells and clotting factors which we isolating using a blood draw and a centrifuge. This creates an opportunity for tissues (bone and gums) to regenerate using only the patient's own cells, light and energized oxygen!
If you would like to see more dentists adopting an approach like ours, the only way to change this profession is by educating the public! PLEASE forward our IG handle to everybody you know and help me to grow our reach! My mission is to reverse the negative stereotype of dentistry by offering biological and integrative dental care that respects the human energetic system. Blessings to all of you who share this vision and information!" THANK YOU SO MUCH @blodgettdentalcare 🙏💫💙 #oralhealth#toxictuesday#toxins#pain#implants#wholehealth#blodgettdentalcare#healthcare#dentalclinic#dna
We try the #daytonstrong IPA, a beer made with all proceeds going to help recovery efforts from the Memorial Day weekend tornadoes in the area. This limited-edition brew comes from Warped Wing Brewing Company (@warpedwing), in association with the Dayton Brewing Alliance, which has helped to organize several ongoing relief efforts for those affected by the tornadoes' damage. Warped Wing is proud of its Dayton roots, and they wanted to find a way to give back to their community. We'll drink to that.

Why should you Outsource? The main reason… it’s less expensive. Medical billing can be a demanding and challenging task for small medical practices. For this reason, many physicians make the choice to outsource their medical office billing. A knowledgeable biller can optimize revenue performance for the practice.
Outsourcing medical billing to experts significantly reduces overall provider liability since certified billers and coders keep themselves abreast with changing laws and regulations.
Providers can discuss all the changes with certified coders to educate themselves as well as help billers to prepare cleaner claims. If nothing else, this offers peace of mind for and medical professionals, so they can focus on their jobs instead of being distracted by medical billing and coding ever-changing requirements.

WCT’s Health team was at the Gir National Park, Gujarat, from November 21 to December 1, 2019, imparting basic first aid and trauma management techniques to 90 frontline forest staff at the PA through its ‘Trauma Management Training’ programme. This programme, conducted in partnership with Tulsi Foundation, UK, offers an overview of trauma-care, guidance on methods to deal with emergencies such as injuries due to animal or human attacks, vehicular trauma, snakebites, burns and heat-strokes, high-grade fevers, seizures, and other medical emergencies.
These important, life-saving skills prepare the forest guards to respond to emergencies promptly and effectively. With the majority of the forest staff deployed at remote locations, where there are limited or no healthcare services available, mortality of forest guards on duty is a major concern. Such skills could save lives of our foot soldiers, the first line of defence of India’s valuable wildlife.
I cannot believe 2020 is just around the corner! 🙈 2019 has been a great year for many of us! Some of us received the acceptance letter we’ve been yearning for while others have graduated and are preparing for the NCLEX or have already earned your title! As we come near the end of this decade I just want to reiterate that YOU my friend are capable of so much more than you think! 2020 is going to be an amazing year! Literally claim it for every single year because where there is growth there is success. 🙌🏽 Big or small, give yourself credit. Every year is your year! A year filled with countless opportunities. 🖤 Let’s finish this year strong and welcome 2020 even stronger, together. 💪🏽 We’ve got this y’all! Happy Monday!
Antibiotics are strong medicines that treat bacterial infections. Taking antibiotics too often or for the wrong reasons can change bacteria so much that antibiotics don't work against them. This is called bacterial resistance or antibiotic resistance. Antibiotics won't treat viral infections because they can't kill viruses. You'll get better when the viral infection has run its course. But people use antibiotics so frequently/unnecessarily that some bacteria are now resistant to even the most powerful antibiotics available.
Antibiotic resistance is a growing problem nowadays. Specially in Pakistan its kinda favorite thing for people to use antibiotics for viral or minor infections. Even our Doctors easily prescribe them.
Ceftriaxone is the drug of choice in Pakistan for colds and flu and according to new research till 2030..80 percent Pakistani will be resistant to antibiotics.
And this is really dangerous thing to know. We should try our best to not use antibiotics unless its become inevitable.
Yesterday my diploma arrived in the mail, after weeks of waiting. Like an early Christmas gift. And for me, this means so many things. To never stop fighting for my dreams, even if I got two "no's" and that it took one and a half year to get into nursing school, I did it!! After all those days when I doubted myself and thought I wasn't able to make it through or that I was good enough as a nursing student and especially after the first introduction day and looking at the schedule for the whole semester and thinking "I'm never going to make it through". And even if I'm in the most stressed situations I know that I can handle it, because nothing was more stressful than having to take the practical test to see if I would qualify as a nurse or not at the end of the education. And to start school after years of not studying, to literally have my nose down the books for hours, trying to learn about all the sicknesses there is and learning latin words and taking long exams about the central nerve system (and yes my central nerve system was going crazy thanks to all the nerves whilst taking it haha). But this is a moment I'm really damn proud over and happy about, even if I wasn't sure ever from the first moment if I would ever get this diploma that I now have in my hands. And this just shows that hard work pays off and being really damn stubborn helps a tiny bit as well 😉
Let the next chapter in life begin, I'm ready for it and whatever the future may bring! 👩🎓👩⚕️

Congratulations to Dr. Sophia McKinley, ED.M., former Mass General surgical education fellow and current fourth year resident in the Department of Surgery, for receiving the Partners HealthCare 2019 Resident/Fellow as a Teacher award. Thank you for all that you do to bolster our educational programs!
Finally submitted my last final of the semester!!
This semester has been the toughest one for me. All my classes challenged me to make connections between all the fundamentals that I’ve learned so far. In clinic, we are held to a higher responsibility with our patients. Presenting for Academy, I spent a lot of time on my project through the middle of the semester. Honestly, I didn’t have much time to study for boards.
I hate learning by listening, and much prefer reading. I get distracted so easily. So for my first week of break, I’m making a goal for myself to finish all the 35+ hrs of videos from KMK. That way, I can focus on just reading my notes/books for the rest of the time.
Can’t even imagine how next semester will be. But just grinding through and hoping to pass boards part 1 in March. 🙏🏻

The vast majority of the time this is how I look: huddled over, doing my work, just trying to figure things out.
If I’m not on my laptop, I’m in meetings.
Or at the hospitals/clinics.
Or spending quality time with the family.
Or reading interesting books and articles.
Or in some other way trying to get myself together.
Just trying to become who I’m supposed to become.
The thing about your 30s is that most people probably thought they’d have it all figured out and things would be smooth sailing by then. All the schooling and grinding of your teens and 20s would miraculously amalgamate into automatic success+love+happiness once you’re in your 30s. 🥴
Maybe that’s true for some, but I def feel like I’m still trying to figure a lot of things out. Hopefully, my sharing a bit of the process will help others who are on their own journeys to becoming who they’re meant to be.

I knew I would become a nurse because of how much my mom loves her profession. It’s been almost 12 years since she graduated from her nursing program, the same program I attended and graduated from last year. She always pushed me to go for it because she knew how rewarding it would be and I am so so glad I followed in her footsteps. I feel like I was born for this. Her caring spirit, empathy and work ethic I carry with me every shift. I’ve followed in her footsteps in more ways than one and each step has led me to a truly fulfilling road that has had its twists and turns but I know will be worthwhile! The defining moment in which I chose this career path was at her graduation and I will never forget that. My mom is the most amazing NICU nurse and I’m so proud of everything she’s accomplished🥰❤️
