It’s not accumulating more fame, influence or…See More

The 5 Reasons to be Hopeful in 2021

2020: Our “annus horribilis”Everyone can agree that 2020 has been a brutal year. For many months now, we’ve had little reason for optimism. Bad news followed more bad news and we’ve felt helpless, frightened, and out of control. But thanks to science, it now looks like there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.It was almost impossible to be hopeful in 2020 with people losing loved ones, businesses being shuttered, and images everywhere of …See More

Do People of Color Face Racism in Heathcare?

Black Lives MatterThe Black Lives Matter protests are continuing into their second week with no signs of abating. And that’s a good thing. It reminds me of the #Time’sUp and #MeToo movement, when things reached a tipping point and there was no turning back. No-one could pretend any longer that there wasn’t a real problem and that things absolutely had to change. The same has happened since the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer.As a white woman of privilege, I…See More
