Here’s a quick run-down of some of the things I have been reading lately:
- Buzzfeed.com: What is the real toll of war on our veterans? A beautiful photo series highlighting what it’s like to live with PTSD. For another take on living with and living through a traumatic experience, see my recent post about the broken and yet unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
- Icouch.me: A start-up that I just learned about and was featured on Wired.com a couple years ago. A clever way to address both the shortage of mental health providers in certain areas and the stigma of seeing one.
- NYTimes: Another healthcare delivery innovation. This time around medicine, health coaches, and customer service. Can we be better stewards of health for our patients?
- Gawker: It’s crucial we “get this right” when it comes to transgender rights and transgender health. Click to learn more about transgender health issues and ways to improve your own practice.
- ThinkProgress: Gay conversion therapy is harmful and unethical. Thankfully, it was banned in New Jersey, as it has been in California, Oregon, and Washington, D.C.
- TheDailyShow: Rolling Stone retracted their article about rape at UVA, which John Stewart discusses in a segment called “Fact-ish.” What does this mean for victims of assault who come forward? Thankfully, false rape accounts are exceedingly rare. Cue Bill Cosby.
- Vox: Chipotle announced this spring that it would stop serving Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). Further evidence that we have no evidence when it comes to our food and healthy eating. See my post about Authentic Food for some thoughts.
Anything else I should add to my reading list?
