I created this website because I came upon an idea. So I was studying a lot for medschool and I loved to procrastinate. Watching TV or going to reddit or facebook were(and still are my go to past times). Unfortunately I could never get away from studying. I would almost always encounter a medical reference(and often to what I should be studying).
So then I also thought about how important patient education is and how sometimes medical professionals gloss over the details and patients feel like they need a translator despite being told what’s going on.
So as a way to
procrastinate educate patients (and maybe some med/nursing/PA students along the way). I would post some short articles that combine a medical concept (drug/disease/syndrome) to pop culture (art/music/tv/etc.) with the hopes that the info will be retained better and people will feel empowered.
So enjoy the website, provide compliments, comments, criticisms and suggestions for future topics!
