Like everyone I know, I have spent the past couple of weeks doing my part to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (washing my hands, working from home, staying six feet from people who don't live with me), but I can't stop thinking about the healthcare workers who don't have these luxuries. They are voluntarily stepping into the fire every day. And now we hear that there isn't enough personal protective equipment (PPE) to go around. There aren't enough masks, gloves, gowns to keep healthcare workers safe.
A friend of mine who is a nurse posted a message on Facebook that was originally from Reddit. The message resonated with me, so I wanted to share it with a broader audience. The message to healthcare workers is simple: there is no emergency in a pandemic. Don't go in without your PPE.
WHY SCIENCE NEEDS ART (AND VICE VERSA)
When I was a young girl, I was told that I was "gifted" at math and science. Then I was told that I had a moral obligation to pursue a career in a STEM field... twenty-five years later, I started to wonder if this was true.
I presented this PechaKucha style talk last night at Dark Sky Brewing for the Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival. I re-recorded it and (lazily) animated the slides for this version.
