The Ministry of Health and wellness is again pointing Jamaicans to help in prevention of dengue cases by keeping their households free of breeding spaces and allowing access to vector control workers. The Ministry stated its position in a national broadcast Sunday evening, December 8, by Minister of Health and wellness Dr Christopher Tufton. In the broadcast, Dr Tufton said Dengue Fever is a big challenge faced by the nation.
“Dengue has become a major public health problem worldwide. The Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes are transmitters of the dengue virus.”The broadcast was highly anticipated and the Opposition People’s National Party had called on Dr Tufton to provide details on the figures including deaths from dengue. But Dr Tufton did not provide any figures for Jamaica, stating however that dengue has become endemic in over 100 countries including Jamaica.The Ministry also set out its efforts to fight the disease, including through increased supply of vector control workers.
The statement said: “In addition to fogging done by the Ministry we are asking that householders be more proactive in dealing with the mosquitoes that cause dengue. We have utilised, in the past, a protocol whereby householders spray the inside of their homes with a domestic insecticide, such as Baygon and Pyrex.” It urged people to seek medical support as soon as they believe they have dengue.

Endoscopic suturing has revolutionized our practice as gastroenterologists, and it’s arguably my favorite procedure to do and to teach (this is my 3rd or 4th time teaching this at a course). There are a multitude of applications:
*️⃣ weight loss/bariatric procedures where it’s used to sew down the stomach
*️⃣ fistula or perforation closure
*️⃣ fixation of devices like esophageal stents that could otherwise shift in position
*️⃣ closure of resection site after large polyp removal
*️⃣ closure of bleeding sites
Yesterday, I had a great time teaching the region’s faculty and fellows at the Delaware Valley Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (DVSGE) fall course yesterday at @drexelmedicine .
For those interested, I’ll be teaching again at many courses in 2020 including the Hopkins HITEC course, the Flexible Endoscopic Surgery course in Miami @fesconference, at the largest GI conference @ddwmeeting in Chicago and more... See you there! 🤓

USC Holiday Party 2019. Thanks @drfitsmiles for hosting such a wonderful evening and keep the @usc.ortho tradition strong. Always love catching up with faculty, alumni, and current residents💪✌️
In addition to the physical suffering, leprosy patients are forced to deal with social stigma, isolation, and abandonment. In an effort to extend love and care to a group of leprosy patients, volunteers recently organised a fun-filled day at Mumbai’s Ackworth Leprosy Home.
The event began with a healing meditation to help the residents feel calm and stress-free. It was followed by an emotional experience sharing session, which helped increase the bonding amongst the residents. In addition to organising games such as housie, the volunteers also re-decorated the space with a Christmas theme. The event was capped-off with distribution of gifts and snacks.
Renewed with this positivity, the residents thoroughly enjoyed the evening!
Happy Sunday! ☀️Grateful for a day off to attend church with my mama, study, and meet residency applicants at dinner tonight...didn’t mean for the bottom left question to be on this pic, but for you curious people the answer (not shown) is E. Anxiety 🤷🏻♀️ Also grateful for my green highlighter. It’s the little things sometimes 💚 #sundayfunday

As #medicalstudents you learn about #openglobe#eye injuries in #ophthalmology . As #residents in ophthalmology you see them firsthand numerous times over the course of #residency and #fellowship . As a #cornealtransplantsurgeon I see #openglobes more than I see my #mom and just so you keep perspective #Ilovemymom plenty, so my visits with her aren’t exactly lacking in quantity. An open globe is a full thickness disruption of the external layers of the eye such that there is a conduit between the internal contents of the eye and the external #environment . Most open globe #injuries are a result of either #bluntforcetrauma or #penetratingtrauma . This unfortunate gentleman presented on a Sunday after a MVA ( #motorvehicleaccident ). That large hole in the center of the #eye is a #missingcornealtransplant . After a #cornealtransplant the #grafthostinterface never fully heals ie the wound is vulnerable to #dehiscence from blunt trauma. The family was unable to find his old corneal transplant after it dehisced from his eye. To explain why they couldn’t find his old donor cornea we can examine the #physics of the situation. The #conservationofmomentum of a system is equal before and after a car accident. M1V1 = M2V2 (1 is before the accident and 2 is after the accident). This patient was traveling roughly 100 mph just before the accident and weighed 70 kg. After the accident, only the small corneal graft was moving and if we assume it weighs 10 g (0.01 kg), then the velocity of the cornea after the accident would be approximately 700,000 mph! ( #mcat physics). Thankfully one legacy #eyebank was able to get me a new #donorcornea within 1 hour. Amazingly enough the patient did not develop any choroidal hemorrhage nor #hypotonymaculopathy . The interesting thing about this photo is that you can see the #opticnerve of this patients eye because with the refractive power of his cornea, aqueoushumor, lens and vitreous all missing the effective power of this eye is 0, so viewing it with the naked eye is optically possible. The things you see at #lacounty#usc ophthalmology!
It was about my fourth time in his hospital room that day and my patient in his 80s whose impaired speech I was hardly able to understand a week earlier said, “don’t work too hard. Thank you for everything.” His gratitude and smile meant the world to me. It was an exhausting day and I felt like I spent more time doing the work of a social worker and hunting him down to consent for a CT scan than actually practicing medicine and then the electronic signature pad wasn’t working and...it’s the kind of work us residents get caught up doing that tends to suck the joy out of our professions. Choosing joy, providing the best care to our patients, and not becoming jaded by the system becomes rough. But I’ll keep trying ❤️
Whew! It’s been a busy week so far coming back from the Thanksgiving weekend! Especially since we have residency interviews coming up, and I’m coordinating the residents for interview day as well as hosting one of the preinterview dinners at my home (again!) this year! 💕 I finished up my derm path elective last week, and it’s been back to clinic... I’m not very good at derm path but it was a really great rotation with lots of self study time and I feel much better about derm path at the end of my rotation compared to the beginning! 🧐🔬
For my fellow derm residents, here are some of the dermpath resources I used to study:
1️⃣ Kikoxp.com - Kiko is like Facebook for dermpath! Different dermatopathologists share cool cases and good learning slides. Dr. Nancy House has 3 really great teaching slide sets! Our residency program has its own group where we post our weekly dermpath unknowns and clinical kodies! Getting to review unknowns from home is 👌🏻.
2️⃣ Elston - The Elston Dermatopathology book is the main book resource I’ve used for the past 2 years (holding it in this photo!) as well as the accompanying lectures that come with the book. I’ve also started watching Elston YouTube videos as well... I have a coresident (who is 🔥 at dermpath) who listened to the Elston videos from YouTube on her commute to and from work (just don’t watch the videos while you’re driving haha... still enough good discussion of the topics though even if you can’t see the slide!).
3️⃣ @jmgardnermd YouTube videos - Dr. Jerad Gardner has really great videos on YouTube about a ton of various diagnoses. He really breaks things down in an easy to understand way!
4️⃣ PathPresenter.net - Path Presenter has a dermpath high yield cases library with over 3,000 digital slides! Not only do you get the answers with the cases but there’s also the micro description with links that highlight the corresponding the portion on the slide and clinical photos too!
Let me know if I’m missing out on any good dermpath resources! 📚

And we’re back on that #interviewtrail ! 🤩 Feeling so grateful to have spent this past Thanksgiving week with my family & loved ones 🥺😩😭 This is the first year in the last 16 years I haven’t had to worry about any academic obligations or pending deadlines. Growing up, I’ve always known what I wanted career-wise and made sure to do everything I could to work towards it. Like so many others in medicine, this work ethic came with an insurmountable amount of sacrifice, and along the way, I’ve had to miss important events, milestones, and relationships. Life never waits for you, and this will not change 💔😔 So many years past, I found myself asking for more and more— of myself and of my life. But this year, I finally feel whole. It is truly the most wonderful feeling to be doing what you enjoy, surrounded by people you love — in a home filled with happiness. If you’re in the rough of it right now: know that it really does get better. Your hard work will pay off, and in those moments you do not think you can overcome — you will, and you will prevail. Keep your chin up and keep trucking along. Hoping you all have a wonderful Monday & find something you are thankful for today, and every day thereafter ❤️
