When your patient says YES to the treatment plan!!
Creating a treatment plan that addresses all of your patient’s needs, all the while keeping their best interest in mind can be super involved and time consuming. Today I presented a very lengthy and expensive treatment plan for a patient of mine that came to our clinic eager for a change. After discussing the details and answering all his questions, I decided that even though this patient has accepted the treatment plan presented, we would not start definitive treatment today. I wanted to give the patient a few days to digest the information we went over before making any irreversible changes to his mouth. Treatment plans of this extent can be really daunting and overwhelming, so allowing some time in between will give both the patient and myself the confidence to proceed!
Am giving a talk today at Oxford university pediatrics department about why we need to focus on #publichealth not individual level solutions for #breastfeeding
Most women in the UK want to breastfeed yet we have the lowest rates in the world. This isn't through #choice but more a consequence of their environment. We might #promote breastfeeding but we don't #protect it. This needs to change.

One month ago today I received my Masters degree in Public Health from Georgia State University! My journey was filled with ups and downs like you wouldn’t believe; trying to remain focused (and refocusing when necessary) and faithful were among my biggest challenges. But through most importantly the never-faltering grace of God as well as my friends/village/tribe, those absolutely wonderful and endlessly supportive people I would never fail to call my family, I was able to accomplish this milestone (thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!!!!). Through it all and even at the commencement ceremony I have been constantly shown and reminded that this leap into the realm of public health was not only the right decision, but right on track with me fulfilling and walking in my purpose. As I fight to eliminate disparities both domestically and globally, promote health, and protect and raise up my people and those in need, I will always remember this amazing part of my life fondly and with gratitude. - the public health superhero 🦸🏽♀️❤️💋🌍💫

🧐Nutrition is all about the nuance and context; perfectly illustrated when it comes to iron. An essential micronutrient, iron is key for normal childhood development and energy metabolism, and also happens to be the world’s most common micronutrient deficiency.
👯♀️Some 1.6 BILLION people globally are iron deficient, with women disproportionately affected. Side effects include fatigue, but can also lead to more serious problems like increasing the risk of haemorrhage during childbirth #ironisafeministissue
⚠️Conversely, having too much iron can also be a problem. Haemochromatosis is an inherited condition where levels of iron in the body gradually build up over the years. It can lead to fatigue, as well as liver, joint, pancreas & heart problems. Luckily, treatment is fairly straightforward. You just have to give blood every 3-6 months.
🔬Haemochromatosis mostly affects men, but particularly affects Caucasian Northern Europeans, especially those of Celtic descent. In the UK roughly 1 in 200 have the genotype, although it's estimated by some that this may be as many as 1 in 8 in some parts of the country. My partner - a Stoke-on-Trent pureblood - was diagnosed a few years ago with treatment making a big difference to his tiredness levels. (Don’t worry, I've unhelpfully told him he could do with some of my kickass mongrel genes💪!)
💊 Although - understandably - iron supplements are often blanket recommended and marketed to combat tiredness, I always think this shows it's really important to get your iron levels tested properly first if you're fatigued! .
A walk with the ghosts of Wanchai
What do you think about Wanchai? The world of Suzie Wong? Or a place that full of luxury shops and night bars? No, it is not a full picture of Wanchai.
Instead of sitting at home and watching old horror films this Hungry Ghost Festival, it would be better to join our ghost tour in Wanchai. Wanchai is a place that old meets new, we can explore the neighbourhood to learn about the history and culture behind those urban stories.
From playground to red light district and cinema to wartime heritage. We are going to learn about life and death and the meaning of our life in this tour.
Inside all historical spots, there are many stories to be told. Stories of superstition, of local customs, of misery, of wartime tragedies, of torture and suffering, of unnatural death and of evil spirits. These stories lived in their historical contexts and were passed through generations.
There are a lot of unseen stories in this concrete jungle, in this July, which is the ghost month for local Chinese community, come and join us. Let us unveil those spooky and haunted stories in this tour.
Date: 13th July, 2019 (Saturday)
Meeting point: Customer Service Centre, Wanchai MTR Station
From playground to red light district and cinema to war time heritage. Join our tour and you will know.

these are all my notebook used purely for CDC related job. from here you can see two things:
1) that the book sizes are getting smaller as the time goes 😆 not because i have less thing to jot down but because i delegate more ✌🏼(i have to, otherwise i wont be able to keep my sanity intact 😅). 2) you can take me out of fun things, but you cannot take the fun out out of me 😬
i used to put animal clip on my steth back during hospital services just to keep spice things up .. how fast the time fly by.. anyhow, i’m just putting it here for memory, to remind me how much this job means to me and how it all started. a humble beginning from where passion takes to life 🌷
Breastfeeding reality 🤱🏾
This picture says it all💕
Breastfeeding is not always an easy journey.
I just wanted to highlight this week is a celebration of breastfeeding and not to make any one feel bad about not being able to breastfeed.
Your baby will gain nutrients in some way and if you tried well done. It is just mine to keep you informed about it, and support you through it.
For those of you who don’t know, a few years ago after getting my masters in #publichealth (#MPH) I started my journey into the #intuitiveeating philosophy and soon after became a certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, coached by the queen RD herself, Evelyn Tribole.
Since then I’ve conducted many group courses on the subject, helping people learn to reject the diet mentality that oversaturates our culture today and leaves so many women (and men) feeling depressed, unworthy of love, and doubting of their own value as a person outside of their physical appearance.
I’m preparing for my next round of classes, which starts next month, and just want to be another voice that tells you YOU ARE WORTH SO MUCH MORE THAN MANY OF THE VOICES IN THE WORLD WANT YOU TO THINK!
These voices are wrong and are merely sheep following the crowd and hoping to get paid for it somehow. They prey on people’s social tendencies, propel unrealistic expectations and further engrain one’s mistrust of their own body while reinforcing an unhealthy relationship with food either as a coping mechanism, a substitute for self care, or otherwise.
If your relationship with food is an unhealthy one I strongly encourage you to check out the book Intuitive Eating and begin your journey back to it (because we all start out that way, but then society tells us they know better... 🤦🏼♀️). For added benefit, on the official Intuitive Eating website you can also find a list of certified intuitive Eating counselors across the globe (including myself) who can help you with your journey.
Eat well, and be well, my friends. 💙🙏🏻🌿🍾
Yummy granola 📷 from @basicswithbails 😍😍😍
Making a swap.... Anybody who is aware of @publichealthengland ‘s @change4lifeuk will already be familiar with the ‘make a swap when you shop’ campaign. They have a great food scanner app that you can use to scan labels and visually reveal sugars in foods and drinks.....it’s really helpful and can be eye opening....
This is a great example of how to half sugar just by what you buy......
Surprisingly, the smarties ice cream cone has the lowest sugar content with just over 2.5 sugars....it is also the lowest %RI on saturated fats (just 13% when compared with the other two which have 38% and 47% RI)
Next is the Cornetto with 2.75 (check sugar content on different flavours as they are likely to be higher-this is just the ‘classico’)
But the Flake cone (which used to be one of my favourites!) has over 5 sugars, so pretty much doubles the sugar sugar content of the other two 😱😱....and exceeds the maximum recommended daily sugar intake for 4-6 year olds.
I was really surprised that the smarties ice cream came out the lowest (so low sugar, hyperactive children!)
Sometimes when we say ‘make a swap’ it’s not always realistic as it’s not always like for like....but in this instance, by buying more carefully, your child can still have ‘an ice cream cone’ as an occasional treat and you can also half the amount of sugar they are consuming! (I would not advise these for daily consumption as the sugar content is too high!)....look out for the @change4lifeuk#10minuteshakeup with @disney which is out in July....my children love the 10 minute shake ups!
