Handle antibiotics with care


Antibiotic resistance happens when bacteria change and become resistant to the antibiotics used to treat the infections they cause. 

This is compromising our ability to treat infectious diseases and undermining many advances in medicine. We must handle antibiotics with care so they remain effective for as long as possible.

Reflections:You need to finish that race!


I re-connected with an amazing old friend last week and during the course of our long-catching-up-funny discussion, he talked about how he has stopped chasing his main life goals and academic pursuits. I encouraged him with strong words and admonished him not to give up.
An athlete who is training in the hopes of reaching the Olympics must keep that vision, that goal, ever before him. He has the “Olympic vision,” and this gets him through every rough and grueling workout or practice. This makes the lack of time off, the fatigue during the day, the times when he gets little sleep at night, a nonevent.—Because that goal, that vision, becomes more important than any temporary pang of today.

Air Pollution:Breath life back into our cities

Air pollution isn’t just a little haze in the distance. Air pollution outdoors and inside our homes claims an estimated 
6.5 million lives every year. It impacts our health through long-term exposure and causes near-term climate 
change, threatening the lives of future generations.

Reflections:Going through a major change


Changes are awfully unsettling for me. I like my little nest, where everything is just so and nothing jostles me too much. I like my routines and schedules, the comfort of knowing what’s going on—both immediately and in the future.
All that was thrown up in the air recently when my husband and I found ourselves moving away from family and friends. We boxed up all of our belongings and drove toward our unknown future. We knew we needed to move, and we knew where we were going, but beyond that, the future was a big blank. And that was scary.
