Flowers from my husband <3

TSK: Just the facts, Mom.

  • Cranquis: So Veronica, I understand you're having painful cramps with your periods?
  • 14-year-old Veronica *staring fixedly at her phone*: uh... yeah.
  • Mom: Oh good grief, let me tell the story, she's too embarrassed.
  • Cranquis: No problem.
  • Mom: Ok, so everytime she gets her monthlies, she gets bad cramps. At first, we thought it was just because she was so gassy --
  • Veronica *embarrassed*: Mom!
  • Mom: -- but even when she'd let out a big fart --
  • Veronica *face bright red*: MOM!
  • Mom: -- she'd still have the pains. So I told her to try pooping more often --
  • Veronica *mortified*: Oh god mom just stop!
  • Mom: Honey, the doctor needs to know these things.
  • Cranquis: Yeah, I wish I didn't, but it's true.

Just touch it already!

  • CS Prof: ...and you feel for the point of maximal impulse at the 4th-5th intercostal space near the mid clavicular line.
  • Female student: um, where would the PMI be on a female patient?
  • CS Prof: Same place. Women's hearts are in the same place as men's, believe it or not.
  • Female student: well yeah, but I mean...er... how do we get to it? What if their breast is in the way?
  • CS Prof: Oh, ok, well you see, you take your hand like this (cups his hand), and you MOVE THE BREAST OUT OF YOUR WAY!
  • Student: Oh...umm...*blushes*
  • CS Prof: Oh for heaven's sake, it's just a breast. If you're going to be a doctor, you gotta learn how to touch a boob!

We got a nod from Fast Company for our innovative use of the new Timeline layout to create an “emphasis on narrative, history, and photography” while “while directly engaging with fans and patrons in ways pamphlets and mailers never could.”Go check it out and let us know what you think!

Chad: “Prevention is the Important Issue”In December 2011, Doctors Without Borders nurse Marja Scholten coordinated a vaccination campaign in the African country of Chad. Along with a team of 300 people, she ensured that nearly 110,000 people were vaccinated against meningitis.


Meningitis, which causes inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain, is responsible for many deaths every year. The disease is particularly prevalent in the so-called “meningitis belt,” an area in sub-Saharan Africa that includes Chad. This year we were working with the new vaccine MenAfriVac, which provides protection for far longer than other vaccines: ten years as opposed to the two or three years offered by other vaccines.This was the first time we were involved in a preventative campaign—normally we start to vaccinate once a disease has already broken out, but with meningitis A prevention is the important issue. Training was planned involving all the heads of the health centers in the area.Photo: Chad 2012 © Marja Scholten

Haiti: “Madame, Here is Your Baby”

Is there a woman in your life who has benefited from emergency care during a pregnancy or delivery?

In light of International Women’s Day on March 8, we’ll be releasing four stories this week that highlight the fact that most maternal deaths are avoidable with access to emergency care.

Watch the first, the story of a new mother in Haiti who could not afford to pay for a lifesaving C-section.

One of the great things about Tumblr is that people use it for just about every conceivable kind of expression. People being people, though, that means that Tumblr sometimes gets used for things that are just wrong. We are deeply committed to supporting and defending our users’ freedom of speech,…
