This is a huge advancement for medical training for mental health!

Stigma around mental illness can get worse in medical school - so Des Moines University is requiring their students to take NAMI's Provider Education Program to help combat stigma.


HOSA week 2019 is this week. Members attended a professional panel put on by Myrtue Medical Center staff and some yummy pizza on Monday. Tuesday was scrubs and goody bags made for local EMS police, fire and Medivac employees. Thursday is HOSA t-shirts and breakfast donated by Hy-Vee! Awesome week!


Another really cool project In honor of Ayzlee McCarthy is these blankets made for Blank Children’s Hospital patients. Amber Cunningham McCarthy collects them and delivers them on the anniversary of Ayzlee’s passing on Dec 29. She will take any donations made to Blank for us and they will be passed out to kids that are in the hospital. 💜

Philip Morris v Uruguay: A Story That Deserves Retelling

This is a great story about a very small country trying to make an impact against Big To***co. We have a very big problem with e-cigs and va**ng amongst young people and need to take a stand against the sales of these items and their targeting towards youth. We found a v**e pen in the parking lot this morning. It smelled fruity, like candy. No wonder kids like it.

medscape.com A tiny nation takes on big to***co. Melissa Walton-Shirley, MD, sees lessons for the US in this tale of two presidents, one an oncologist, who did not back down in pushing for libre de humo de tabaco.
