Hey there! I hope you’re having a great day. I’ve got some exciting news to share with you. Novelist John Green has been making waves in the fight against tuberculosis, teaming up with USAID and the Philippines for a public-private funding partnership. His ultimate goal is to see a world where tuberculosis is no longer a public health threat, and with his advocacy, it seems like a real possibility.

In other news, the use of AI in healthcare is on the rise, with investors flocking to security and privacy startups to bolster health AI products. This is a great step forward in ensuring the safety and privacy of sensitive healthcare data.

However, it’s not all good news. Haiti’s health system is in crisis, with a state of emergency and nighttime curfew exacerbating an already precarious situation. The surge of gunshot wounds and sexual violence, along with challenges in accessing supplies and clean water, is putting a strain on the healthcare system.

On a brighter note, there’s a renewed interest in emergency medicine as new doctors are bouncing back after the field became the embodiment of professional burnout during the pandemic. It’s great to see this positive shift in the healthcare industry.

Lastly, meditation continues to grow in popularity as a mindful practice that can aid in various health conditions. Learning how to meditate and elicit the relaxation response is key, and it’s a practice that can have a positive impact on anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and more.

I hope this news brightens your day and reminds you of the positive advancements in healthcare. Stay healthy and positive!


Stay Well!
