Gross Anatomy: The Reality of Cancer

End of week 7. Today I dissected the peritoneal cavity - meaning the stomach, small intestine, large intestine, spleen, etc. Our lecture was 2 hours long and lab was 3.

We Should All Care.

Sunday morning, I flew to McAllen, Texas to find out what's really happening to immigrant families ripped apart by the Trump administration.

2 Words: Obsession & Compulsion

Did you know that it is mental health awareness month? Well, it is! I've talked about my issues with general anxiety disorder before, but not so much about OCD. OCD is something that a lot of people can relate to, but also something that is often misused in conversation and is misunderstood. Coming from someone... Continue Reading →
