A few years ago, during one of our big class sessions in medical school, we were asked to name our Heroes. I had never truly thought of who I looked up to, outside of religion. And I never raised my hand. Many years later as I compiled a list of those I love, through their … Continue reading Who is your hero?
I took a class a while ago, called the Healer's Art Course, which was surprising not what I expected. I thought it was to help us learn the art of medicine, however, it was about bringing humanity back into medicine. We learned so much in from and about one another, both in large and small … Continue reading Healer’s Art
So lately I've been reading a lot of Buddhist Monk Books. And I have to say, while on vacation, I fully submerged myself into the book The Art of Living by Thich That Hanh and it was well worth it. It was a very easy read and if anyone is looking for something to help … Continue reading Mindfulness: The Art of Living

I wanted to write about something that is very important to me, and I am sure is very important to most of you as well. Time. Time, to me, is very precious. It is quite possibly the most expensive currency that is around, maybe only second in line to someone’s life. I find my time … Continue reading Time
Today I decided to take a hike at the Bedford Reservation near my house. If you're looking at a map, it’s at the very top part of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, northbound. The air is so crisp today because of the cool 28°C that it is. The sound of the water crashing nearby is … Continue reading Bedford Reservation

Hiking- the weather finally got up to 45 degrees yesterday in Cleveland so I did go on a hike near Rootstown campus (also because there … Continue reading Update on Hikes, Plant Based Eats and New Years Resolution
So yesterday while at an ObGyn conference, we had the good graces of having the famous (not sure how famous he really is but he's something for sure) Dr Esselstyn speak to us about health and eating well. If you have not seen Forks Over Knives on Netflix yet, I highly recommend it. I watched … Continue reading Plant Based Food diet?
