Greetings from Washington, DC (of course) and welcome to my seventh now update. I’m calling it November so that I will challenge myself to do a December update.

  • Continuing the deep dive into nutrition, when I learned about the publication of Tim Noakes (@ProfTimNoakes) and Marika Sboros (@MarikaSboros) book: (Lore of Nutrition: Challenging conventional dietary beliefs) I moved all the other books on my list aside. Every physician, myself included, has endured professional bullying in their lifetimes. From my read so far, Noakes’ experience being bullied has been taken to a whole new level. Important reading for anyone who has ever sought to change everything (who, us?)
  • Ongoing study of digital engagement in the 21st century. Interestingly, the Noakes’ book touches on what’s happening with regard to health knowledge, I am working and learning in a very complementary part of the field.
  • Also related to leadership, enjoying learning the lessons of leaders who lead in a world that doesn’t want them to. The long awaited renovation of the Carter G. Woodson House was great to see, the all gender restroom contained within (and the rainbow flag on the establishment next door) says how much the world has learned to ❤️ better. I’ll post about what I learned, in the meantime, here are the photos.

And, this tweet (if you don’t like the news, make your own)

Until next month.
