During WWII, Irena got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an ulterior motive.Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried. She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for larger kids.Irena kept a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazi’s broke both of her legs and arms and beat her severely.Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out, In a glass jar that she buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and tried to reunite the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.In 2007 Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected. Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming.

What starbucks drink represents what type of doctor?

Anonymous

ladykaymd:

Oh gosh I love this.

Latte—Internal Medicine—The latte is the backbone of any coffee shop—fail to make a good latte and you fail everywhere! IM docs are often times the center of patient care in the adult world. The perfect mix of strong medicine with just enough mellowed milk poured in, IM docs are hard-working sweethearts ready to go to bat for their patients. 

Red Eye—Rads—Mostly because you’d need that much caffeine to stay awake in the dark all the time!! It’s also essential that radiologists always keep their eyes open to pick up on the tiny details on those CTs. 

Chai—Family medicine—Chai is a little bit of everything! A little sweet, a little spicy, a little creamy, a little tea, a little caffeine. Family med docs seem to have a hand in every pot doing a little derm, a little OB, a little psych, and a little chronic disease management all in one day! Chai seems like the perfect drink for these guys. 

Straight espresso (ideally injected right into a vein)—ER—This one seems pretty obvious to me! ER docs work crazy night shifts, and are generally the kind of adrenaline junkies that would drink their espresso just straight up. 

White chocolate mocha—OB—One part hard core caffeine, one part the sweetest white chocolate you can find, the white chocolate mocha is just like the mix of really crazy procedures they do in OB with the sweet adorable baby moments. 

Black coffee—Neurology—Neuro seems pretty simple on the outside but once you dive into the complexity of it you find a dozen layers underneath that “black box” of a brain. A good strong cup of black coffee is just like this—seemingly simple on the outside, but full of a dozen different flavors you might not have thought of the first time. 

Caramel Frappuccino—Anesthesia—Anesthesiologists are the docs coming to “chill” you out—which is probably why they always seem so “chill”. Caramel Frappuccinos also do double duty hitting dessert and coffee fix in one go—the way anesthesiologists always seem to manage to have time to do medicine and research!

Starbucks Canned Double Shot—Pathology—Mostly because I feel like it was intended to wake the dead. Haha. But more accurately pathologists are often the “neglected” medical specialty with most people feeling like they don’t usually see live patients so they’re not the same as most doctors—BUT they’re a super important part of the team and can really save your butt when you need help fast! Someone get me a read me the biopsy! QUICK! 

Cappuccinos—Surgery—A little bit finicky, the perfect cappuccino can take a lifetime to master. Surgeons, like cappuccinos demand perfection! But, they’re classic, strong, get the job done, and all with a fluffy coat of foam! Besides—pouring the perfect cappuccino with those little designs on top requires quite a precise hand!

Pumpkin Spice Latte—Psych. I mean—come on. The people who are so addicted to this coffee should see psychiatrists for some addiction counseling! 

Skinny Vanilla Latte—Dermatology—While appearing “fluffy” at first glance, dermatologists do everything from cancer to procedural work. Don’t judge this drink from the outside! 

Americano—Ortho—Just like the ortho docs muscling a bone back into place, an americano is just strong enough to wake you up in the morning. (Side note: The drink was named after American GIs who didn’t like the strong French espresso—I’ll let you draw your own conclusion about what that means about ortho docs??)

Hot chocolate—Pediatrics—Warm, comforting, sweet, and adored by children everywhere. 

Disclaimer: this post is OBVIOUSLY a joke. I intend no disrespect to any specialty by it!! It is all intended just to make you laugh and any stereotypes represented here don’t represent my view point on the specialties.

Kingdom Hearts - Dearly Beloved 2013

Patients are more satisfied with their care when doctors share their medical notes. But letting patients see what doctors put in medical records has long been taboo. That’s starting to change.

When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’

It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?
