Valentine’s Day is here. This annual tradition is intended as a celebration of love. Because when you are in love, the whole world seems wonderful. The sun shines brighter. Flowers are more fragrant. Food even tastes better. When you are stuck in a bad relationship, however, it can turn your whole world upside down… and not in a good way.
Thanksgiving is almost here, folks! It’s that oh-so-wonderful time of year where we eat, we drink and we pass out in tryptophan comas (and then some people risk life and limb to go shopping the next day, for some mad reason). Among the time-honored Thanksgiving traditions there is, of course, that of going around the table to let everyone name off the things for which they are thankful.
Independence Day is upon us once again. However, the world is a far different place than it was when last we celebrated our most popular summer holiday. Americans have not celebrated the Fourth of July during a pandemic since way back in 1918. Seeing as how it’s been over a century since we have needed to do this, and that none of us were even alive the last time it happened, it’s hard to know what we should (and should not) be doing. That’s why we figured it might be a good idea to offer our readers this blog with tips on how to (safely) celebrate Independence Day during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.
Attending a medical conference can add value to both your professional abilities as well as your practice. That being said, most of us would probably agree that, on at least one occasion, we have returned from a conference feeling that it did not provide the return we expected. Conferences are an investment of not only your time, but also money for things such as airline tickets, hotel stays, food, registration fees, etc. Therefore, we should expect to come back from a conference with some tangible returns such as new skills, new best practices and/or new strategies to implement.
Thanksgiving is upon us once more… and you probably have no idea how much danger we are all in.
As summer hits its stride, barbecues, pool parties and fireworks displays are in full swing. Unfortunately, with all the fun comes an increased risk for injury, especially around the 4th of July. As the nation prepares to celebrate Independence Day, specialty practices may want to keep these somewhat unusual ICD-10 codes within easy reach to make sure practitioners correctly and completely document the conditions they see.
Thousands of dermatologists poured into Washington, D.C. to learn about the latest advances, network with colleagues and discuss the field’s future.
You did it! You went to a conference and made it back with, hopefully, a new wealth of knowledge and a bag full of business cards and notes. But now what? If you attended all of the amazing sessions, talked with experts and networked with exhibitors you are sure to be a little overwhelmed. But don’t set that (brand new EDGE) bag in the corner of your office and “look at everything later." Take it out and assess!
