Here is my first newsletter for my readers. My goal in this Volume is to raise awareness about #ovariancancer, #treatment, #patientadvocacy #symptoms, and #testing. Ovarian Cancer is known as the silent killer because many people are not diagnosed until the disease is staged out to 3 or 4. This newsletter will give help you understand early symptoms and what steps you need to take to protect yourself early. #cancer #depression #anxiety #mentalhealth #wellness #womenshealth #help #chemotherapy #debulking #healthcare #health

Healthcare and Life in a Covid-19 World
In 2020 and still, today in 2021, getting a doctor's appointment, particularly with a specialist, is difficult. Who could have forecasted e-visits through your smartphone? I would say that during the peak of the pandemic, e-visits were a decent solution for over-scheduled doctors and social distancing requirements that made office space scarce and waiting rooms taped off. It was nothing that the doctors could have prepared for, but as time passed, all of the technical glitches, scheduling, and registering improved. It was actually a pretty cool transition made in a short time. However, it has its place in healthcare. How much is lost in the doctor/patient relationship? How many mistakes are made because the appointments are not in person. Read the attached newsletter on Healthcare in a Covid-19 World and learn about my story and the very dangerous place healthcare has become. #healthcare #medicalmalpractice #covid19 #evisits #nursing #emergencyroom
