Take a look at this phenomenal presentation by Fatima Cody Standford, MD, MPH about her approach to patients struggling with obesity.
Ultimately, each and every one of us is an individual, and what works for one person may not work for another. Patients should be approached with this concept in mind to develop a treatment that fits their individuality. Dr. Standford gives personal accounts of treating patients, emphasizing the detriment our personal bias can have on patient outcome. Unfortunately, obesity is a life-threatening condition, made evident by multiple stories discussed in this short video. There is something to be learned for everyone in this eye-opening talk.

I recently stumbled upon the CDC Public Health Image Library (PHIL) and thought it would be an excellent resource to share with others. I’ll be adding it to the growing list of recommended websites for this blog as well.
Basically, you can use keywords to search through their image database and you’ll find a lot of pictures related to your criteria. It’s a very useful resource for anyone completing a presentation, research, etc. It’s also really nice to just look through images of stuff you’re learning about. For example, we covered tuberculosis today and a quick search yields pages and pages of pictures of cultures, X-rays, slides, lesions etc. It could be especially beneficial for any visual learners out there! Give it a try!
