Don’t show anger; show empathy: How to talk to the unvaccinated

August 31, 2021

As we head into year two of the COVID-19 pandemic, the delta variant has thrown a monkey wrench into our plans for returning to a normal, or at least, a “new normal” life. COVID-19 cases are soaring, and only 52% of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated. We can cajole, we can threaten and we can call the unvaccinated fearful, irresponsible or ignorant. But those tactics aren’t moving the needle sufficiently. It’s time for a new approach — one that considers the mindset of the unvaccinated and that will have greater odds of success.

The Difference Between D.O. and M.D. Degrees

November 07, 2019

Anyone who dreams of becoming a doctor should understand that there are two types of med schools: allopathic and osteopathic schools. While allopathic schools offer a traditional medical curriculum, osteopathic schools supplement lessons in standard medical sciences and practices with instruction on how to provide touch-based diagnosis and treatment of various health problems, such as circulatory issues and musculoskeletal conditions.

While both allopathic and osteopathic med schools provide preparation for a career as a doctor, the academic credentials awarded are different. Graduates of allopathic schools receive Doctor of Medicine, or M.D., degrees. Osteopathic school alumni have Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, or D.O., degrees. Someone holding either degree can call him or herself a physician.
