Red State - Blue State -  Mortality Rate

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

HOLD THE PRESSES - please tell me why this is not Front Page News?

BMJ study of correlation between U.S. MORTALITY DATA and ELECTION DATA from 2001 to 2019

"People in counties that voted for Republican presidential candidates were more like to die prematurely than those in counties that voted for Democratic candidates, and the gap has grown six-fold over the last two decades."

The Smoking Gun??

Patient Communication - What to do when a patient says thank you

I have asked hundreds of doctors to tell me a story of their most recent ideal patient encounter.

You know the one.

That interaction during an otherwise busy day, where, at the end of the day, you said to yourself, "oh yeah, that's why I became a doctor in the first place."

97% of the time that feeling comes from
