worst part about the weekend? Not having this study view 😍

Tips for having an effective and productive school year:
•use a planner (google calendar, paper planner...anything)! I schedule out my day in the morning and I get as specific as filling in what task I want to tackle during each time block
•don’t over schedule (be realistic in your goals!) I always overestimate how long a task will take me so that I don’t plan out too much for everyday
•when you’re in class or studying put away all distractions! I use the “flora” app to track my study productivity as well as prevent me from accessing everything else on my phone
•pre-read for each lecture..seriously just at least look over and briefly research the topics you’re going to learn about (this should only take 15-20 mins!)
•re-read over your class notes the DAY of the class..this has been studied to show increased ability to retain the info 😄
•I have recently started doing mediation for focus and stress relief using the headspace app. Its really awesome as a mental break from studying!!
•l-Theanine has been my best friend for improving focus, as well as caffeine and B12 supps for overall energy ☺️
•pick a bomb study playlist! I use “productive morning” on Spotify because the music is very uplifting and motivating...just make sure your music is instrumental!
Anyone have any tips I didn’t mention??

CDC is observing #FedFashionWeek and featuring #scientist David Lowe’s must-haves for the lab. A recent graduate of #CDC’s Laboratory Leadership Service fellowship, he knows the importance of dressing for laboratory safety. “Here, I’m wearing a Tyvek double-gloved PPE, which is resistant to liquids,” Lowe says of his blue protective suit. “And while rabies isn’t spread by air, the PAPR is an awesome tool to filter environmental allergens in the lab.” bit.ly/CDC-LLS-Stories #publichealth

Being 14 inches lighter never felt so good! 💇🏻💗
Donating money isn’t the only way to give back! There are tons of organizations that welcome donations of hair to be turned into wigs for those in need! I chose to donate my hair to Wigs for kids because they give the wigs to cancer patients at no cost to them! If you’re looking for a change and ready to chop your locks, please strongly consider donating them to help someone in need! 💇🏻💗
I think I’m finally getting into the swing of things..minus a tiny bit of catching up that I still need to do 🙈 my goal is to get my study habits down to a T so I know exactly what to do and when and I’m almosttttt there!
This first week and a half has already shown me how important it is to study effectively and efficiently, so it’s taken some adjustment from my typical study methods to cut down on time spent. I used to rewrite all of my notes and redraw the figures because the repetition and act of writing everything out in my own words helped it stick, but unfortunately drawing out each figure is WAY too time consuming so I’ve just settled to redrawing the ones that I need to once I’m studying the material and sitting down to really master it. I wish I had more time to dedicate but there’s so much to be done that I can’t send nearly as much time on note revision as I would like to. No worries though because we’re getting there 🙌🏻

Whooping cough vaccination (Tdap) during the third trimester of pregnancy prevents more than 3 in 4 whooping cough cases in babies younger than 2 months old. Flu vaccination during pregnancy helps protect babies from influenza for several months after birth. While Tdap and flu vaccines are safe and effective, vaccination coverage of pregnant women remains low. To learn more about maternal vaccination, watch #CDCGrandRounds on Facebook Live, 9/18 at 1pm ET. http://bit.ly/CDC-GR-Maternal

In the mid 1980s, the King County Department of Public Health began including AIDS education in the curricula of K-12 public schools in the county. ⠀
By 1988, the AIDS Omnibus Act was passed in Washington State and mandated that all public schools in Washington State provide AIDS education for 5th through 12th grade students. As you can see from the brochures, public schools were required to educate students about the dangers of sexual intercourse, with or without condoms, and also promote abstinence. ⠀
This pamphlet by the King County Department of Public Health was reviewed by student focus groups at West Seattle High School in 1995. They removed the image of the hairy palm when they published the brochure because the students didn't understand the reference.⠀

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: New Jersey Harm Reduction Coalition started as an idea in a bedroom three months ago. Our growth has been exponential, in large part thanks to the help of our followers and the #harmreduction community.
If you like what we do, please consider becoming a recurring donor on patreon or buying some materials off our Amazon wishlist for our #naloxone kits. You can find those through the linktree in our bio. Your contribution will go directly toward getting life-saving supplies to the communities that need it most. And you might even get some NJHRC swag once we iron those orders out too 😉🤓
