Quoted @Health_Affairs

In their new blog, @CindyBVeldhuis, @lizstuartdc, and @FallinDani of @ColumbiaNursing and @JohnsHopkinsSPH argue that #MentalHealth demands a complete #PublicHealth #COVID strategy, including universal screenings, anti-stigma campaigns and an equity focus.

An honor to work on this. Key message is that we need a public health approach to the #COVID19 mental health crisis. This includes:

1. Media campaigns
2. Screening
3. Interventions
4. Increasing capacity
5. Surveillance and research

As more contagious COVID-19 variants from across the world emerge, experts now share why proper masking and faster vaccination are the best defense against another deadly surge.

Some really important publications about school re-opening during a pandemic over the first few days.

A thread, and some musings.

PLEASE READ MY WHOLE THREAD BEFORE THROWING STONES.

Another useful thread summarizing current science around school reopenings.

I also posit we need to be thoughtful about language: reopening is not a binary decision. It can be partial, and what also really matters is HOW a school "reopens" and what protections are put in place.

Covid-19 Has Robbed Faculty Parents of Time for Research. Especially Mothers.

Women in academics have lost ~ 1.5 hours of research time per day as a result of #COVID19. One of the authors is Dr. Jenna E. Stearns @ucdavis.

Wonderful to be able to engage with @DanielEDawes at #AHLAAMC21 and better understand how the political determinants of health compound health inequities. #HealthEquity

In what turned out to be the last days of her life, @sxbegle worked on a story about the rising incidence of lung cancer in never smokers — the disease that killed her earlier this month. It was Sharon's final story.

In December 2016, I interviewed Dr. Francis Collins in what I thought was going to be an exit interview as President Obama's @NIHDirector.

I was wrong.

We spoke recently about his priorities going into his 12th year and third White House:

Good morning America! You all seem thrilled about Biden’s moon rock. Its symbolism, of the scientific and exploratory achievements that have been made – and will ideally soon be surpassed – certainly hits home.

What you might not know is that rock has an *epic* backstory. 1/x

There's a moon rock in the White House. The trip across the Mall was the shortest journey for this space traveler who was collected during the Apollo 17 moon landing. A fascinating thread about this unassuming memento and what it means and symbolizes.

Q9. What gives you hope now? #AskReuters

A9: Having vaccines against COVID-19 is an extraordinary accomplishment of science and is a true ray of hope for a COVID-free future. There's a long way to go, but with each dose we get closer.
Thanks for the invitation to join you for #AskReuters. Stay safe, wear a mask.
